Car Key Extraction
Got your key stuck or broken in one of the locks to the car? In the case of a key stuck in the ignition, your battery may drain causing further hassle and repair. To get the key out a legitimate Locksmith service technician will begin by applying lubricant to the lock. The tool used for this job is called a “broken key extractor” and functions with ease when used by a professional locksmith.
The tool is lined up along the flat edge of the lock as if an additional key was being used. Once the tool is flush against the broken key, the locksmith will hook the key without pushing the broken metal farther into the lock. Once the broken key is hooked, it is simply slid out from the lock. The probe method might also be used depending on the situation. This method uses two metal locksmithing tools to grip the key and pull it free. Of course, Locksmiths can also make a new vehicle key if this is the only key or you need a duplicate.
