Overland Park CAR KEY EXTRACTIONS
Did your car key become stuck in your ignition or in a door lock? The expert locksmiths are available to come to your location 24 hours a day to extract they key.
When you extract a key from my ignition, will you need to replace it?
We will be better able to answer this question when we assess the broken key and your car's ignition in person. Several considerations go into the decision of whether we need to replace an ignition after removing a stuck or bent key from inside of it. A big determining factor when we assess this decision is looking to see the extent of the key breakage as well as the how deep the broken pieces are within the ignition.
When the pieces of the broken key are towards the top of the opening for the ignition, our skilled automotive locksmiths can usually extract them easily and won't have to consider replacing your ignition. However, we will likely need to replace the ignition if you apply a lot of force to your key or ignition and it results in the key breaking inside of it. That is because the firm pressure can cause damage inside of the ignition cylinder that we're unable to repair. We would need to replace it instead.
It's important to work with the professional mobile locksmith technicians rather than attempt to extract your own key. We are conveniently located here and will have someone at your location as quickly as possible. Just Call us 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Am I going to need to replace my car door lock?
Many people have this concern after a locksmith extracts a broken key from a door lock. We can usually extract the key without having to replace the lock as well. However, this isn't always possible when the lock of a car door has sustained too much damage from the broken key. Whether we need to replace your car door lock or not, you can relax knowing that your car is in good hands with us.
What is the average turnaround time for key extraction?
This takes a lot less time than you might expect. It can be as short as 20 minutes for straightforward cases. You can expect it to take longer when we need to extract a broken key from your ignition rather than a door lock. We can give you a better time estimate after arriving at your location and assessing the situation with your broken key. Our company guarantees that we won't cause additional damage to your vehicle when completing a key extraction. We don't want to make this situation more difficult for you than it already is.
Should I have a spare key made?
Yes. The whole reason you called our mobile locksmith company is that you broke a key. That makes it impossible to drive your car if it's stuck in the ignition or difficult to access if you broke a key in a lock. Although you may feel tempted to try to start your car with a broken key or to hotwire it, we strongly advise against this. Not only could you cause further damage to your car, you could injure yourself in the process as well. By having us make a spare key, you will have it if this situation arises again in the future.
Can I start my ignition switch if it has pieces of the key stuck in it?
Although this might be physically possible, we strongly discourage you from trying it. Starting a car with two broken key pieces is not as simple as you might expect. In addition, it could damage your car even more. That is because the action of attempting to start the car forces the key's broken pieces even deeper into its ignition cylinder. We also advise against trying to open a car door when it has a broken key stuck inside of its lock. There's no need for you to take these risks when you can call us 24 hours a day and receive prompt, professional service.

Broken key extraction from your ignition
The ignition of a car can be fragile, which means it requires precise tools and an experienced auto locksmith technician to work with it. We are always careful to extract broken keys very carefully to avoid causing additional damage. Since the job can be complex, it requires the use of specific tools to complete. Our locksmiths take special care to ensure that you don't have to worry about replacing your broken keys due to our mistakes. We aim to solve your problem, not add to it.
Removing a jammed key from the lock of your car door
Many drivers make the mistake of trying to extract broken keys from the lock of their own car. Unfortunately, this can result in greater damage if you don't have the training and tools to complete the job correctly. When a key breaks inside of a door lock, we need to remove all of the pieces as well as replace the key. This can quickly add up to more than you planned to spend. It's better to call a locksmith expert and avoid this risk altogether. It may cost you more money upfront than attempting to extract the key yourself, but we guarantee all of our services. This gives you the peace of mind of knowing that a professional completed the job and your vehicle will be safe to drive, enter, and exit.
We provide you with a new key after extracting your old one
Extracting the broken pieces of a key from a lock is not the last step for our service call. We still need to ensure that you won't have this problem again in the future. This could require us to replace your current car keys if they are bent or worn in any way. A bent key is the most common reason that people get their key stuck in a lock or ignition in the first place. Of course, we will always try to straighten the key before replacing it. If this proves impossible or you broke your key in two or more pieces when trying to remove it, our mobile locksmith will create a new key for you at any location and at any time of the day or night.
Working with car locks after extracting a key
In most cases, a bent, worn, or corroded key is the reason for a jam. Occasionally, a key breaks due to a problem with the lock instead. It could freeze or contain too much dirt, rust, or other type of debris for the key to fit in and turn comfortably. If your lock appears dirty or full, try cleaning it to see if the key fits better. We are always available to help you if this doesn't work.
