We provide many car services for you in the Boca Raton area. Here’s a short list of services that we are often called out to do:
- Car Lockouts
- Car Key Made
- Replace Ignition
- Key Extraction
- Trunk Lockout
- Key Programming
- Transponder Keys
If you can’t get back into your car, we can ensure that you’re able to get in quickly. On older cars that don’t feature electronics, there’s a metal rod which is located between your car door handle and the door lock. We use a Slim Jim so we can “jimmy” this. This is done by pulling the metal rod which will unlock the car door. We don’t like this method because if you have a rusty rod or if you have dry plastic connector caps, they can break.
We usually use an easier method to get into the car. We use an air pillow which is like a blood pressure pillow that you can inflate with a hand pump. This device for your car is called an Air Wedge. When the device is deflated, it’s very thin. We slide it between the seam of the car frame and the car door. Once the device is in, we inflate it with air and this create a small gap. This gives enough room to maneuver using a Big-EZ locksmith rod. This may have a hook end or an angled end. We can unlock the vehicle from the inside this way by pushing on the unlock button and pulling the handle from the inside or by fishing the keys out of the vehicle. Other ways to get into the vehicle include using the power window button or by rolling the windows down manually. This same will apply to trunk unlocks we use the trunk release lever or the release button to get into the trunk.
Vehicles may all look the same to some, but they have different locking mechanisms between the various makes and models. On one car our locksmith in Boca Raton may use one method to unlock it, and on another vehicle a different way to unlock the locked car. Things that are considered are the handle condition, button, lock system, if keys are easy to reach, or if the vehicle is running or not. Once the locksmith arrives a visual inspection is done and then you’ll be given an estimate before the work is done.
The air wedge is the best option to open the car door. It’s inserted into the small gap of the door and pumped with a bit of air. This won’t crack the window or bend the door. It pries the door open by about an inch and then a metal rod can be inserted and this allows us to hit the power lock or the unlock button to get into the vehicle.
Our locksmith in Boca Raton can also cut new car keys for you. There are a few ways to provide you with replacement keys for your vehicle. On some models the ignition key will match the door so it’s easy to take the door lock off of the door. We can open the cylinder and then read the cut’s depth from the wafers locate inside and match this to the ignition. On other vehicles we can get the matching cuts from the glove box or from the trunk.
We can also get a code from the VIN number by connecting to the dealer database. This will provide for us the key cutting information as well as the transponder key programming information that we need. This method is used when we have to program a keyless entry key fob for the newer push start cars. Connecting to the dealer does cost us money so we try to use the old fashioned manual way as this is added cost to you.
We can also make a new replacement key by picking the ignition. We can remove it from the steering wheel column or the dash board and then read the cuts from the ignition switch or the ignition cylinder. You need a professional locksmith in Boca Raton that makes car keys, so you can rely on us to do this sort of job if required for your vehicle. In some rare cases, the ignition may need to be replaced. If the ignition was replaced in the past, then the door lock won’t match it any longer. The VIN number extracted won’t work because it only matches the original ignition. In this case we can drill out the old ignition and just install a new one and this will come with a new set of car keys for you.
Most cars on the market today come with a transponder key. Inside the key there is a small chip. When you try to start the car the ECU, or engine control unit, will send an electromagnetic pulse to the chip and the chip sends back a signal which the ECU recognizes. Our locksmith in Boca Raton can program any type of transponder key using several methods. In some cases, a programming computer is used by plugging this into the ports which are under the steering wheel. Some methods use timed series of event such as turning the key on and off a few times in a sequence. Once you have the key code stored in the car, this disarms the immobilizer and you’ll be able to start the vehicle.

- Bedroom Lockout
We are experts at getting you back into your home if you lock yourself out. This job includes lock replacement and rekeying locks for you. The number one reason that locksmith Boca Raton are called upon is when someone locks themselves out of their home. We refer to this scenario as a house lockout. If you lock the door from the inside and close the door without having your keys, then you can’t get back in.
Getting locked out of your house is a situation that can happen to anyone and it occurs quite frequently. You may be distracted, have your hands full of items, or in a rush to get out the door. It’s a good idea to have a spare key that you carry with you, but if you don’t then we can help you unlock your door and get back in.
In other cases, we are called for key extraction when a key breaks inside the cylinder. This can happen if you mix up your keys and try to put the wrong one in the lock. In other cases, the lock may just be stuck from rust or a mechanical issue.
You may have forgot your keys at work or at a friend’s house and it’s too late to get them back. We can help you get in anytime it’s required.
There are a few ways that we can help you unlock your locks. One of the oldest methods is to simply pick the lock to get back in. We use a lock picking toolset which act like a key. A key has different cuts on it and when the key is inserted these cuts correspond to the different length metal pins which are inside the lock. When these are aligned in the correct manner, this allows for the free spinning motion of the tumbler inside the cylinder. We use our tools to get the lock mechanism to turn and this will open the door for you.
It’s not difficult to pick a lock, but you need some skills and practice to get it done right. Most locks can be picked, but it depends upon the keyway, type of lock, and the security level of the lock. Some locks can’t be picked such as the new smart key locks which use a new type of system.
If we’re unsuccessful picking the lock, we have other methods that we can use. We may use the air-jack method that we use to open car doors. We’ll use this method if the doorknob is locks as it won’t work on a deadbolt. This is inserted into the door frame near the latch and it’s pumped with air. This is to create a gap that’s wide enough for a screwdriver to push the latch in, so the door will open. This method is used when the door isn’t too tight in the frame. It works on older doors and where the door hinges are already loose. This allows for room for the air-jack to work properly.
The last resort we use is to have our Boca Raton locksmith unlock doorknob is by extracting the cylinder. We use a small drill bit, or it may be smaller depending upon the lock work we’ll be doing. We drill into the keyway head to break the security pins that won’t allow the lock to turn. In residential standard locks there are five top security pins as well as five bottom security pins. We try to drill the five bottom ones which allow the top ones to drop down into the tumbler. We then clear the broken pieces with a screwdriver or small pick. Once we have cleared the pins away and there’s nothing in the way, the cylinder can be turned with a flathead screwdriver.
We also replace locks and rekey locks in addition to helping you with a lock out. If you move into a new home for example, it’s a good idea to replace the locks or rekey them. Before you move into the residence, many people may have access to the keys that open the doors to the residence. This may include old tenants, contractors. Relators, neighbors, and friends of the previous residents. You don’t want to put your valuables at risk so having new locks is a smart idea. Replacing a lock is an affordable and easy task for us to do. We feature many different locks and styles to meet any budget that you may have.
Rekey is an economical way to change your locks. This is done by changing the cylinder combination of the security pins. This disables the older keys and the lock will only work with a new set of keys. This done if the locks are in good condition and you want to keep them on the door.
If you feel that your locks aren’t working very well and want to rekey the doorknob or have a rekey done on the deadbolt because of issues, then a rekey is a better option than replacing the entire lock. A rekey can be done for a small cost depending upon the number of security pins. We can inspect the lock and recommend if it needs to be replace or if a simple rekey is the best option for you.
Commercial Locksmith Boca Raton
Our locksmith in Boca Raton service can also work on commercial businesses that need locksmithing services. We have worked with hundreds of businesses in the local area. We’re able to service all sorts of businesses and can provide services for anyone that requires them.

We can replace storefront locks as well as office door knobs and door handles. We can also install high security locks if you require them and can rekey all sorts of commercial style locks. We can provide master key systems for any type of business.
As a manager or business owner, you’ll work with locksmiths on numerous occasions. You may find yourself locked out of your business or office. You may lose or misplace your keys and as a business, you want to get back in right away as you could be losing money if you’re not at work. You will need a new lock or a rekey as soon as possible and this is where we can help you quickly with our services.
Many storefront doors use what is called the Adams Rite mechanism. This can be a hook bolt, or a latch that has a Commercial Mortise Cylinder. Our locksmiths carry this in their vehicle and have all styles of mortise cylinders so they can be replaced right away if needed.
When you can’t get back into your business, we try to pick the cylinder first of all. This all depends on the lock type and the level of security that your lock has. If a pick is unsuccessful then the cylinder can be extracted. This is done by drilling the security pins which are inside the tumbler. We can then open the door without causing damage to the lock.
Commercial locks may be made with high grade materials, but we can still get into them. We are able to unlock all types of commercial doorknobs or deadbolts. It doesn’t matter if they use a high security Mortise Cylinder or not or even a high security Rim Cylinder.
Our Boca Raton locksmith service can also provide a lock replacement and lock installation if you need one. We also provide rekey services as well as master key systems. If you have moved to a new location, it’s a good idea to replace the locks there. There may be copies of your keys in the hands of others such as contractors, old owners, or relators and you want to protect your business.
If you have employee turnover or have let an employee go, then changing the locks is a good idea because you don’t know what an old employee may do even if you suspect nothing. One idea is to just rekey the locks instead of the costlier replacement option.
We are often called to provide locksmith services in Boca Raton when the owner feels that the locks aren’t providing them with enough security. This may be because of an older lock or on that’s not latching or locking properly. The lock may be one that has simple keys which need replacing. Our recommendation is that a business upgrades to high security locks such as Mul-T-Lock or Medeco locks. These have keys that prevent duplication and these are also pick proof to deter thieves.
Master Key System
The master key system is where there’s a master key which controls all of the locks. Each of the locks has its own key and each one works independently, but still has the master key that will control several keyed locks. For managers, owners and maintenance staff this is an ideal situation. There’s no need to carry a key ring with a lot of keys. A master key system can be designed that will allow for control of an entire area, floor or even an entire building. Both large and small businesses can take advantage of the master key system. This works the best for hospitals, schools, government, or offices the best.
Panic Bars/Exit Devices
We provide other lock services in Boca Raton such as exit devices or panic bars that many businesses and public areas need to have. These devices are ADA compliant and fire rated. They allow for the quick exit from a structure in case of an emergency situation.
High Security Locks
Locks from Arrow, Medeco, Best, Falcon, and Mul-T Lock are recommended as they provide you with high security. These locks are harder to tamper with and are ideal for commercial businesses. They are the standard in hospitals, government buildings, and schools.
If you have an electronic keypad this allows the employees to enter the building or a restricted area of the business by punching in a code. Making new codes and deleting the old ones is an easy process. You can disable and enable codes for employees with ease. An advanced lock will allow for users to be monitored.
