This sheriff came into our shop in uniform and in sheriff’s vehicle. To have us go to the sheriff’s station and open two safes that he had from his recently deceased father . They were in his personal vehicle. We went down got them both open. Came in later to pay. Said they were full of guns. : Locksmith

All of them are pieces of shit but that doesn’t stop us from taking their money. They also in addition to being shit are incredibly cheap and stupid. They love calling up Academy Locksmith in Anaheim who are frankly one of the worst locksmith services in the United States. I can say with absolute certainty that our industry is going nowhere good with fucks like Academy Locksmith and the Flying Locksmiths completely fucking up jobs all the time in addition to undercharging for work they get in over their heads and thus fuck up.

Customer lost his keys and towed his vehicle in for new keys. This is where I found his key : Locksmith

Got called to unlock a Mustang on a trailer, where the owner said he’d left the key in the ignition when he drove it onto the trailer. I didn’t bother looking, just picked the door and opened it up, at which point the alarm went off. Reached in to turn the key, and it wasn’t there. Guy looks shocked, reaches into his pocket, and pulls out the key!

Service Vehicle Options : Locksmith

Hello fellow locksmiths, I have been working as a locksmith for a local company for around 7 years now and I am planning to go out on my own in the next few years. I am wondering if anybody on here is using the spacekap/maranda walk in truck toppers as opposed to the traditional cargo vans? Where I want to start a company will be in the mountains and having AWD/4X4 will be beneficial for the service area I would be in. Thanks!

Vehicle Lockouts : Locksmith

Hello Everyone:

What kind of advice can you all offer on going on vehicle lockouts? I have done a ride-along on a couple of them and they seemed pretty easy as we able to get in with the “black” tool from the big AT kit. But it seems to me that a lot can go wrong on a lockout.

The guy I was riding with at the time told me about how he once got one of the tools stuck in the door and he tried for almost two hours to try and get the tool unstuck. He said another time he actually broke the window track on a customer’s vehicle…

Is it just a matter of going “by the book” with these types of lockouts? I had to call AAA maybe 10 years ago to get my car door unlocked. I was driving a late 90’s Mazda Protege. The tech just used an airbag and then a long reach tool to either push the lock button or pull up the knob (I forget which method he used). I had to get into my 2005 Honda Accord about 4 years ago and I used a plastic pry to pull the door back at the top corner and a makeshift tool to press the unlock button.

For some reason, these types of jobs worry me the most. I’m not really afraid of not being able to unlock the vehicles because the kit and book really give a lot of great info. I’m more worried about messing something up and pissing off a customer because I damaged their car in some stupid way.
