Remove broken keys from cars, trucks, and vans
Is your car key stuck in the ignition?
It’s a worrying scenario to be in that instils instant panic as you try to figure out what to do.
Should you try and remove the key yourself? What if it breaks, leaving half in your hand and the other half wedged in the keyhole?
It is not uncommon for old and worn out keys to become lodged in a car door lock or ignition. And the first thing you should do if this happens to you is to call a local auto locksmith.
Avoid the temptation of trying to pull the key out yourself: not only can this result in a broken key, but you can also unknowingly cause damage to the inside of your ignition.
An auto locksmith not only hsa the proper tools, but the proper knowledge, too, to safely remove your car key without causing damage to your ignition.
By assessing your unique problem, we can even disassemble part of your ignition plate to safely remove the key.
Ignition locks repair or replace
If the cylinder in your car's ignition lock is damaged and you are not able to turn the ignition switch, you might need to get your cylinder replaced completely.
If the damage is so severe that your key will not comfortably fit in the ignition, don’t try to force it. Instead, call a professional auto locksmith to assess the issue immediately.
We offer ignition locks and door locks for a variety of car make and models conveniently packaged in a rebuild kit.
