1987 Chevy Monte Carlo Ignition & Trunk Lock

We got a call to install a new ignition switch and trunk lock on a 1987 Chevy Monte Carlo in Chandler. The client had just bought the car from an auto auction and was in the process of rebuilding the car. These older cars have spring loaded steering that require some specialty tools in order to remove the ignition switch and install the new one. Within minutes the new ignition switch was install and the car started without a problem. Then we installed the trunk lock and were on our way. 

Installing Security Doors and Door Locks

Over the past couple of days we have received a couple jobs to install security gates on the front door of some people's homes so we have decided to talk about your home security and making sure that you leave your house and belongings secure while you are at work, on vacation, or out for a night on the town. 

Andrews Lock and Key is experienced with installing security gates and new hardware and rekeying the lock to match the rest of your home or office.

And as always upon arriving at your location the technicians of Andrews Lock and Key complete a property security survey to ensure that all access points to your home are proper secure to deter burglaries from happening. 

Farewell to Ryan Ford

We here at Andrew's Lock and Key bid him farewell as he moves on to his new adventure. The blog will still be updated by Andrew and it will be called "The Life of a Locksmith" we hope you will continue reading and help us help you with all your lock and key needs. 

Road Trip to Surprise

Today we ventured across the valley to Surprise AZ for a client with a 1997 Ford Mustang who needed a car key made. The quickest way to get the job done is to pull the lock from the door to read the key cuts. After the key was tested on the lock to verify it worked, we put the car door back together, and used the direct programming feature to program the new transponder key to the car. The drive for the Mesa locksmiths took them longer then the actual completion of the job but it just goes to show the passion we have for servicing the Phoenix Metro valley and helping anyone with any lock and key problem they have whenever we can!

 

 

Making Key for 2005 Nissian Titan

Today the locksmith in Mesa got a call from a young couple that lost keys to their 2005 Nissan Titan. They told us about calling several other local locksmiths but received the best locksmith price from us. We quickly pulled the tailgate lock and read the cuts, then tested it on the front door lock. The key opened the door without a problem, but wouldn't start the trucks. We immediately knew that the Titan'so original key had a chip in the head of it and the customer confirmed. Once we cut a new key with chip and programmed it to the vehicles computer it started right up and the job was complete.
