Broken Key Extraction in West Hills (818) 319-4144
Dealing with a broken key when you’re in a hurry is never fun. Not only are you unable to get to your appointments, but you might be stuck in a busy intersection. Or alone in a parking lot at night when it’s dangerous. If you’re not ready to call a professional (yet), here are some tips to help you solve the issue yourself. Or at the very least, get you out of trouble.
Ways to Extract a Broken Lock Yourself
We all find ourselves in difficult situations at some point in our lives. So it’s good to know some tricks to help you out of tight spots when you don’t have time to waste.
One of those tricks to remove a broken lock is to use needle-nose pliers to grab the handle of the key and pull it out. You are most likely to make this work if the key broke off at its head and all the cuts are still intact.
You can also try spraying oil into the keyhole to loosen up the ignition workings inside. If none of these options work, try finding a flat or thin surface such as a piece of metal and use that to open the lock instead.
As these things go, if you are still having trouble extracting your keys, give your local locksmith a call and strike a deal that will save you time and money (and a headache too!)

Frequently Asked Questions:
If my key breaks in the lock, should I go to a shop to get it fixed, or should I call a locksmith over the phone?
It depends on the level of urgency. If you have time to spare, then by all means, go for it. But if you’re in a hurry and can’t afford to waste time and money on both a towing service and an in-house locksmith shop, you can try a mobile locksmith service instead.

Instead, just give us the key, and we will crank out a brand new one so you can hit the road again.
