Keys, ignition repair and door lock cylinders, we do it all.

We provide a wide range of services related to automotive locks, including emergency lockout service calls, repairing damaged locks and making transponder keys to your car if you have lost your only key. Transponder keys (also called “chip keys”) are car ignition keys with a microchip built inside the plastic head that send a signal to the engine. If the code is incorrect, the engine will not start.This is true even if a key copy was cut exactly like the original.  Many people who have them are not aware of the fact because the chip is hidden inside the plastic head of the key.  Other types of automotive keys we make are Proximity keys(Smart key) & Laser keys.  The proximity key allows the driver to keep the key fob pocketed when unlocking, locking and starting the vehicle. Depending on the system, the vehicle is automatically unlocked when a button or sensor on the door handle or trunk release is pressed.  The ignition is started by the push of a button on the dash.  The laser key has a rectangular blade with a wavy groove cut up the center.  We can also duplicate & program your transponder, proximity and smart keys at our shop as well as sending one of our locksmith professionals to you.  Making a duplicate transponder key is not usually done by most hardware stores because of the need to program the chip in your car key.  Feel free to stop by our shop so we can duplicate & program you an extra automobile key.

More than just keys.

Making keys is not the only automotive work we do.  We also replace and repair ignition and door lock cylinders; this is to include Honda & Toyota high security ignitions and GM vats (chip keys) ignitions on your automobile. If your car keys were stolen, we at The Lockman are able to rekey your doors & ignition lock cylinders to a new key so that your old keys will no longer be able to open or start your vehicle.  Please feel free to contact us so we can schedule you an appointment, or if you would like, you can come by our shop and we will be happy to assist you with any questions or concerns.
