Locksmiths can pick or manipulate your vehicle’s lock
Yes, picking a lock is a thing. Picking or manipulating locks on a car door requires specialist tools. The tools used vary across different make and model vehicles. Having the right tools for the job and knowing how to use them is important in cleanly accessing a car. A locksmith may ask you before arriving on the scene about the make and model of your car to ensure they have the correct tools needed with them so they can open the car door with minimum fuss. Did you know, they can cut and program a new spare or replacement transponder key for your vehicle?
Are you locked out of your house?
Locksmiths can also manipulate & open house locks and padlocks to gain entry. Locks may be shimmed open, by inserting a sprung steel device to retract the spring-loaded catch that restrains the shackle. There are also a few other secret variations a locksmith may use to open locks.
Please note, you will need to provide identification to prove you’re the owner of the house, otherwise anybody could be gaining entry to your valuable property. We do however understand that sometimes your identification may be locked inside and we will ask to see this on gaining entry.
