Try spraying some white lithium grease into the mechanism. If that doesn't work, maybe PB penetrating catalyst. Then get rid of that thing for a race style cap.

I hope the problem has been fixed on time but according to me there is no role of locksmith in this problem. As said lithium grease will be beneficial according to me.
