Why should I call a locksmith when I am locked out of my car? 
If your like most people, you have a big investment in your automobile.   In years gone by, almost anyone could open a locked car using only one tool. It only took a second or two.
Today however, auto makers have really tightened up the security of almost every car on the road. This means that a trained professional must have dozens of tools and techniques in order your car with no damage.
Today's locksmith owns hundreds of dollars worth of tools and books on car opening. That is why he or she must charge a fair price to open your car. When you call a locksmith a trained professional responds to your call. He or she arrives in a service vehicle stocked with thousands of dollars worth of tools and machinery, ready for any emergency.
In many towns, the police no longer will respond to lockouts unless it is a dire emergency.
The more informed police departments do not want to risk doing hundreds of dollars of damage to your car. 
When you call the police, a tow truck driver, or any other unskilled person to unlock your car...you risk unnecessary damage to your vehicle.

  • Police rarely have all the tools or special training needed to open your car without damage.

  • Locksmiths are trained professionals that use finesse, not force.

  • A botched car opening job can easily do $150.00 worth of damage to the inside of the door panel.

  • In a true emergency (child locked in car, etc.), call the police. Plus many locksmiths will open your car quickly, and at no charge.Call 716-249-2944

Master Key?
A Master Key is created when a group of locks are "custom" coded so each lock uses a different key, but a combination is "added" so one key will open all locks. It is a myth that there exists a particular Master Key that will open all locks. In order to Master-key a group of locks the locks must all be made by the same manufacturer or at least have "common" Keyways. In a group of locks that are Master-keyed (MK) each lock is operable by both it's own individual key and the Master-Key. Each individual key operates it's own lock only. The Master-Key operates all the locks in the group. Other systems are also possible using sub-Masters, Grand-Masters, etc.Call 716-249-2944


Can A Locksmith cut a key from a number?
