Gotcha. Thank you for confirming!
That’s a print out showing the dealership tried to run the vehicles VIN in order to retrieve the key code and PIN code. In this case, for whatever reason, Nissan says they don’t have that information for your vehicle. It happens with Nissan, and it happens way too much.
would rather find the company and ask them to send a replacement key tbh given i’m out of work atm and locksmith prices here aren’t the most affordable. besides this isn’t a pressing issue, hence why i thought someone might be able to identify 😌
Hello you wonderful people out there! It's silly, but I was browsing some etsy stuff, and am enamored by the key pictured in the listing for a custom keychain. Can't quite figure out what it would be used for. Thanks!
I know essentially nothing about being a locksmith. I’ve spent the last 5 years bartending, thinking about becoming a locksmith instead. Would you guys reccomend a specific online course? If I was thinking about doing a mobile setup what would the estimated cost of tools be? If I put a cap on the back of my F350(8.2 foot bed) would that be a sufficient amount of workspace/storage? My state requires no certification or accreditation, but which ones should I get? Any advice for total newbs? Whats your favorite thing about the job?
The feature is called emergency egress, the higher grade Schlage you can find in Home Depot have them, otherwise it’s not typical of crappy locks. The idea is that if you’re escaping a fire, burglar, or uncle joe, you’re able to leave without having to think about unlocking the door in a panic. Trust me, If you see uncle joe in your house, you will be panicking. Lock hardware in Home Depot is typically trash.
As for how it actually works, the inside knob is not directly attracted to the lock actuator like the outside knob is until it’s turned to a certain degree. Turning the inside knob to that degree makes contact with the actuator and unlocks the door for the outside. The lock actuator is a long rod (ha) which the back end you turn to lock or unlock it.
