Flatirons Locksmiths; Lost Car Keys in Longmont Colorado? You Don’t Have to Wait on the Dealership

Laser Cut KeysOver the last 20 years, advances in car security technology has resulted in most car manufacturers using “laser cut” or “sidewinder” keys. These keys provide additional security because they are not easily duplicated, and they are embedded with a transponder chip that is programmed to match your car. This combination ensures that only your keys can start your car.

The Burden of Security

As security has increased, we receive the benefit of protecting our property. However, along with that benefit comes the burden of now needing a high security device, not just a simple key, to open and start our vehicles. As a result, losing them can be quite costly and complicated. For many years, only dealerships had access to the technology to create a new laser cut key and program it. In addition to the high fees associated with obtaining a new key, car owners often had to pay to have the car towed to the dealership. This process could end up costing hundreds of dollars.

A Less Costly Alternative

Although not every locksmith has the capability to produce a laser cut key with the accompanying transponder chip, some have invested in this technology. A locksmith’s rate is typically less than a dealership and they will come to you, saving you a towing fee.
