A padlock is a u-shaped, portable lock with a body, a shackle, and a locking mechanism. The shackle passes through openings such as a hasp staple or a chain link to prevent harm, theft, or vandalism. When locked, the shackle fits securely into the locking mechanism, and when unlocked, the shackle ejects from the locking mechanism. Padlocks can use either a combination or a key.

Ownership. You need to identify the make, model, and year of your car and provide the vehicle identification number (VIN). Also, if you lost your original key, the locksmith can reprogram your car and make the old key unusable.

Also need personal identification documents to prove vehicle ownership and information on the type of key that your car uses.

We can typically make keys for most locks. However it depends on if it is economical for you to do so. Good rule of thumb is if it has a number stamped on the face of the cylinder (where you put the key in) then we can run that number in our software and produce keys.
