Modern and technologically advanced vehicles come with keyless entry systems. When such a car locks up, automatic locksmiths use specialized tools to gain access. These include a key analyzer or a VATS access key decoder to determine the car's electrical resistance values. Then, they use a mechanical code key cutter to create an accurate key without having to duplicate the original one.
In addition, long-range tools are used to press an unlock button inside the car or recover keys that are locked inside the car. Instead of entering through the door under the glass window, these tools enter the car through the door seal. If the key breaks and gets stuck inside the car lock, a broken key extractor is used.
Car locksmithsare experts at opening doors, regardless of whether the key broke inside or if you left them stored.
Using these services is a bit expensive, but they come with several tools that you don't have as a standard client, especially for security reasons. Automatic locksmiths can also help open cars that have a keyless entry system and keyless ignition using a transponder programming tool and without the need to physically open the lock. They can teach you many of the techniques and methods that locksmiths use if you're interested in pursuing a career in locksmithing. Like many trades, locksmiths are in high demand and a well-trained locksmith can do quite well, especially in underserved markets. When a locksmith uses these tools to enter the car door, you have a professional who has been well trained in opening cars.
The cost of these services may be higher than what you would pay for other services, but it is worth it for the security and peace of mind that comes with knowing your car is in good hands.
