Broken Key Extraction, Expert And Local Locksmiths!
Sometimes without warning, you find yourself holding part of your key in one hand while the other is still in the lock. When this happens, contact Auto Locksmith Milwaukee! If this happens to you, taking quick action can save you lots of money. In most cases, we can extract the broken key easily with the proper locksmith tools and skills.
What makes these jobs more difficult is when customers often try to extract the keys themselves. Doing so may push the broken key further into the lock, often causing damage to the ignition or lock increasing the cost of repairs. Most often, once a broken key is extracted, we can duplicate a key from both broken parts.
If you find yourself with a broken key and have both pieces, we can either duplicate it from your keys or decode the key cuts. We can make you a key with the exact specs as the original factory key, just like when the car was originally purchased.

Our shop has the latest tools and knowledge to extract broken keys out of ignitions, trunks, door locks on automobiles, as well as door locks, padlocks or anything which requires a key. Signs of a weak key is when it starts to twist, bend, or if it starts to crack. If you see these signs, you need to stop using the key immediately and visit Auto Locksmith Milwaukee for a new key.
Often, excessive wear on a key occurs when keys are duplicated at hardware stores or locations where the machines are calibrated regularly, thus the keys are cut too deeply or spacing is off. Should this happen, this will make the key difficult to turn in the lock (if you are lucky enough for it to work at all). When this happens, the keys will snap. Every time the key is forcefully turned, it weakens the keys prematurely.
Our machines are calibrated often, and we guarantee good quality key cuts.
Avoid Back And Forth Visits To Hardware Shop
Don’t waste time going back and forth to the hardware store. We have a wall full of thousands of key blanks which means more than likely we will have the key blanks you need. Other ways to protect you from breaking keys is to make sure the locks are well lubricated. We recommend using Teflon based lubricant like Tri-Flow or dry graphite.
Absolutely do not use WD-40! Tin time, this will clog up your lock and cause more problems than it fixes. If you ever have trouble with a lock, we recommend you calling a professional locksmith at Auto Locksmith Milwaukee. We can fix it before more damage is done with a broken key or lock.
