Atlanta CAR KEY EXTRACTIONS
It's frustrating to realize that the key for your car has gotten stuck in the ignition or in one of its locks. Fortunately, We are available to extract your key 24 hours a day no matter what your location.
Will it be necessary to replace my ignition cylinder at the same time?
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.
It will be easier for us to extract a key and not have to replace the ignition when the broken pieces are visible and closer to the top of the key slot opening. The likelihood of us having to replace the ignition increase if a key broke off within it. This often happens when the driver applies excess force to the key to get it to turn. The pressure can cause internal damage that is significant enough to require replacement of your ignition.
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. Just Call us 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Will it be necessary to replace the lock on my car door?
We typically don't have to replace a car door lock after extracting a key unless its lock sustains too much damage from the key breaking off inside of it. Our crew of highly trained and experienced locksmiths know just how to extract a key without harming the door to the point where we would need to replace it.
How long will I have to wait for you to extract my key?
This takes a lot less time than you might expect. It can be as short as 20 minutes for straightforward cases. You can expect it to take longer when we need to extract a broken key from your ignition rather than a door lock. We can give you a better time estimate after arriving at your location and assessing the situation with your broken key. Our company guarantees that we won't cause additional damage to your vehicle when completing a key extraction. We don't want to make this situation more difficult for you than it already is.
Should I have a spare key made?
Yes. The whole reason you called our mobile locksmith company is that you broke a key. 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. 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.
Can I start my ignition switch if it has pieces of the key stuck in it?
Although this might be physically possible, we strongly discourage you from trying it. Starting a car with two broken key pieces is not as simple as you might expect. In addition, it could damage your car even more. That is because the action of attempting to start the car forces the key's broken pieces even deeper into its ignition cylinder. We also advise against trying to open a car door when it has a broken key stuck inside of its lock. There's no need for you to take these risks when you can call us 24 hours a day and receive prompt, professional service.

Broken key extraction from your ignition

Removing a jammed key from the lock of your car door
Many drivers make the mistake of trying to extract broken keys from the lock of their own car. Unfortunately, this can result in greater damage if you don't have the training and tools to complete the job correctly. When a key breaks inside of a door lock, we need to remove all of the pieces as well as replace the key. This can quickly add up to more than you planned to spend. It's better to call a locksmith expert and avoid this risk altogether. It may cost you more money upfront than attempting to extract the key yourself, but we guarantee all of our services. This gives you the peace of mind of knowing that a professional completed the job and your vehicle will be safe to drive, enter, and exit.
We provide you with a new key after extracting your old one
Extracting the broken pieces of a key from a lock is not the last step for our service call. We still need to ensure that you won't have this problem again in the future. This could require us to replace your current car keys if they are bent or worn in any way. A bent key is the most common reason that people get their key stuck in a lock or ignition in the first place. Of course, we will always try to straighten the key before replacing it. If this proves impossible or you broke your key in two or more pieces when trying to remove it, our mobile locksmith will create a new key for you at any location and at any time of the day or night.
Repairing locks after extracting a key
In most cases, a bent, worn, or corroded key is the reason for a jam. Occasionally, a key breaks due to a problem with the lock instead. It could freeze or contain too much dirt, rust, or other type of debris for the key to fit in and turn comfortably. If your lock appears dirty or full, try cleaning it to see if the key fits better. We are always available to help you if this doesn't work.
