CAR KEY EXTRACTIONS
No one ever expects their key to break when they put it in the ignition or in a door lock. Unfortunately, this isn't an uncommon occurrence. Keys can become damaged and break just like anything else. The good news is that you can call us 24 hours a day for help getting back on the road.
Will you need to replace the cylinder of my ignition too?
Although we understand this is a big concern, we can't always answer this question until we see your car in person.
We need to consider several different factors when determining if it will be necessary to replace the cylinder of your ignition after extracting a key from it.
One of the biggest factors that goes into this decision is how badly the key broke and how far the pieces of it became lodged in your ignition cylinder.
The likelihood of us having to replace the ignition increase if a key broke off within it.
However, we will likely need to replace the ignition if you apply a lot of force to your key or ignition and it results in the key breaking inside of it.
That is because the firm pressure can cause damage inside of the ignition cylinder that we're unable to repair.
It's important to work with the professional mobile locksmith technicians rather than attempt to extract your own key. We are conveniently located here and will have someone at your location as quickly as possible.
Many people have this concern after a locksmith extracts a broken key from a door lock.

Do you need to replace my car door lock too?
We don't want to make this situation more difficult for you than it already is.
Keep in mind that this time estimate depends on several unique factors, including whether the key broke inside of the ignition or it got stuck in a car door.
Please don't try to hotwire your car or drive it with two broken pieces of a key.
This takes a lot less time than you might expect.
That makes it impossible to drive your car if it's stuck in the ignition or difficult to access if you broke a key in a lock.
The last thing we want to do is cause you additional stress.
Although you may feel tempted to try to start your car with a broken key or to hotwire it, we strongly advise against this.
Not only could you cause further damage to your car, you could injure yourself in the process as well. By having us make a spare key, you will have it if this situation arises again in the future.
Is it a good idea to make a spare key?
Is it possible to turn on my ignition with broken key pieces in it?
You could end up pushing the broken key pieces even further into the ignition.
