How to Avoid Car Key Emergencies
Many people may be wondering how best to avoid mishaps when it comes to car keys. It is a very good question, as you do not want to end up in a situation where your ignition key is missing or not working, and you have no way of using your car.
The experience we have built up at Locksmith Brighton MA means that we have seen many emergencies. One of the common threads through most of these situations is the lack of a replacement key on hand.
Many people only have one ignition key, which means they are out of luck if that key is lost or stops working. When it happens during a random Saturday, it may not be such a big deal. You have the professionals replace your key the next day and you are fine before your Monday morning school or work run.
When it happens during inconvenient moments, you are in trouble. You could lose hours out of your day if your ignition key is no longer working. It is why we encourage you to have your ignition key duplicated two or three times.
Having several duplicate keys means that you are never in trouble if a single key is lost or damaged. All you need to do is go get the other key and you are on your way.
Stuck Ignition Key Repairs
One of the most common issues we have noticed with our customers is a stuck key inside the car ignition. It happens more often than you would think, usually as the key starts to get older and suffers more damage.
Perhaps some edge of the key is no longer in the state it was initially. That means when you turn the key, it may get stuck in the hole. Now you are trying to get it out, but the key will not budge.
There is always the temptation to try and use a lot of force to get the key out. While you will eventually get the key out, you may also damage your ignition. That is not a good idea. It is why we recommend you get help from our professionals.
One of our locksmiths can come to your location, remove the key, and have you on your way. If the ignition key is damaged, we can quickly create a new one that works with your Honda, Buick, Mazda or Lincoln car.
Key Materials Matter
A lot of people assume when you are making a new key for a Toyota, Hyundai, Mazda or Subaru, it does not matter what matters are used. So long as it is similar to the material of the original key, you are good to go.
That is a misconception. The materials used to make car keys matter a lot. They matter significantly for key fobs and transponder keys, as those have computer chips inside. They must be programmed to work correctly.
Even those with a standard ignition key must get help from a qualified locksmith such as Locksmith Brighton MA. We use the highest quality materials and equipment to create new keys.
It means that your new key will work flawlessly within your ignition and car doors. It also means the key is likely to last for a very long time. When you get car keys made from less reputable shops, they do not last more than a few months.
