Entering/leaving your vehicle in a hurry is often the number one cause of keys breaking off in either the ignition or the lock.  Even though more and more cars are implementing keyless entry, you will be surprised at the number of calls we receive daily where people have broken their key off in the ignition or lock.  To remove a broken key from a lock, you should always seek professional help.

At Thomastown Locksmiths, we understand how important it is to have access to your vehicle and to be able to use it when you like. For this reason, we strive to deliver a fast response time for those needing services in, and around Thomastown.

Our onsite locksmith team in Thomastown means that you’ll never have to wait too long for us to attend to you.  We are also open 24/7 so organising for us to remove your broken key will never be a burden.

Furthermore, it’s extremely important that you don’t try to remove the broken key on your own.  Many people will attempt to remove the key with knives, keys, forks etc., and end up causing more damage to either the ignition barrel or to the locks.

If you find yourself with a broken key in either your ignition or lock, then please call Thomastown Locksmiths on 03 9464 0332 before trying to remove it yourself.  It could potentially save you a lot of time and money!  You can also reach us HERE.
