Automotive Locksmith Services
It’s happened to everyone at some point. You’ve got somewhere to go and your car keys are nowhere to be found.
Maybe they dropped out of your pocket or purse, maybe they were stolen, but one thing’s for sure: without keys, your car is just a huge paperweight.
If you ever find yourself in need of a fresh set of car keys, call Pop-A-Lock. We can make keys on the spot for 90% of cars on the road. Our on-call locksmiths can be at your location within 30 minutes and we guarantee we’ll never charge you more than what we quote.
But that’s not all we can do. Got a broken or vandalized lock? Is your key stuck in the ignition? Did you close the door without grabbing your keys?
No matter what car key emergency you’re facing, Pop-A-Lock has mobile technicians ready to help. If you’re in the Hawthorne, Compton or South Bay area and you need an expert auto locksmith, give us a call!
Our Automotive Lock Services
All of the following services are available to our automotive customers, but this is by no means an exhaustive list of how we can assist you. Just give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you out!
New Keys (Including Chip, Electronic, and Car Remotes)
Whether you drive a luxury automobile, a family-sized SUV, or a humble four-door sedan, one thing’s for sure: a car is useless without a key to operate it.
You don’t need to pay an arm and a leg at the dealership to get new car keys. Whether you’ve lost your keys, broken them, or just need a spare set, Pop-A-Lock’s auto service technicians can make new keys for you on the spot - wherever, whenever the need arises.
Our service extends beyond just metal keys, too. As a full-service locksmith, we can program replacement laser cut keys, chip keys, and push-to start proximity car remotes for over 90% of the vehicles currently on the market.
Skip the dealership. We’ll come to you, day or night!
Car Door Unlocking
It’s happened to all of us: you arrive at a destination, park, and walk away from your car, only to discover you’ve left the keys locked in the ignition. Or, you’re loading groceries into the trunk and don’t realize that you’ve dropped your keys until that horrible moment when the lid clicks shut. Don’t fret! Pop-A-Lock’s service locksmiths will be there in a flash, so that you can get back in your car and go about your day.
It happens sometimes: you’re turning the key in the ignition or unlocking your car, turn your hand at just the right angle, and - snap! - suddenly your key is in two pieces, one of them jammed in the lock.
Rather than try to remove it yourself (and risk causing greater damage) one of our experienced locksmiths can assist you in getting back into your vehicle and back on the road.
How many times a day do you get in your car and turn the key? Daily use can gradually wear down the mechanisms inside your ignition switch, to the point where your key can no longer turn and start your car.
Taking it to the mechanic can result in an expensive tow fee and a padded repair bill. Give us a call instead. Our technicians will come to you at no additional cost, and in most cases, can repair or replace your ignition switch on the spot.
Like the ignition switch, car door locks sometimes wear out due to repetitive use. Unlike ignition switches, they are sometimes also vandalized by passers-by or damaged by thieves trying to break in.
A damaged lock is an unreliable lock, and should be repaired as soon as possible. Whether it’s gum jammed into the lock or worse, Pop-A-Lock is here to help.
