Yes. We are capable of opening locks without keys about 90% of the time. Sometimes if time is limited or if our techniques are not getting us the desired result, we may have to drill the lock to open the door. We will always let you know before we do this and we are always able to repair or replace the lock afterwards.
Most of the common ones we can. There are over 10 000 different key blanks. We can cut keys for most of the ones found locally and some less common types. Some keys we are legally not allowed to cut such as Restricted keys from other Locksmiths. If you have one of these keys you will have to go back to the Company whose name is stamped on the head of the key. For the less common keys that aren’t restricted, if we don’t have it we can order them in if needed.
Yes. We service the south side of Brisbane including Woolloongabba, Yatala, Ipswich, Beaudesert and all suburbs in between. We do travel out of this range but this depends if the volume of the work requested makes it viable for the customer as call outs for longer travelling time can make it expensive for minor jobs. Call us for more info on service to your area.
Yes. Our vehicles are mobile workshops equipped with a key cutting machine capable of cutting most commonly used keys.
Yes. Our workshop is located at 35 Tradelink Drive, Browns Plains (Hillcrest). We are open 8:30 – 5:00 Monday to Friday.
Some padlocks are cheaper to replace than make keys for. It all depends on the quality of the padlock. If you paid less than $20 for it, replacing is your best option.
Yes. We can also install locks on windows and screen doors. We have deadlocks to suit most purposes and can even rekey them with an existing key for convenience.
Yes. This is one of our specialties. Great for businesses to be able to control how many keys are cut to their premises. Duplicates can only be cut by us and only when requested by a signed request form. For more information please call us.
Yes – most of the time. Some sliding doors (glass aluminium and security screen combinations) are too close together to allow the same key for your front timber door to operate the screens. This is the main factor that will determine if you have 1 key for everything including the screens or 1 key for all the timber & glass doors and a separate key for all the screens. Some locks may need to be replaced to achieve this. Often customers prefer having two different perimeter keys, one for the main doors and one for the screens.
Yes as long as the lock is in working order and there are no parts missing.
Yes. This is very common. We can replace the lock with a new one.
Yes we can but please be aware that if they are legally entitled to still have access to the property there is nothing to stop them calling another locksmith to gain entry. You may need to contact a solicitor if you are in this situation.
Yes. If they no longer have a right to access the property then this is a good solution to prevent them entering.
If the tenants have vacated the property and removed all their belongings then yes we can. If they haven’t left then the process is a bit more involved. If your property is managed by a Real Estate Agent they will know how to arrange this. It is best to follow their instructions. If you are a DIY landlord you will need to speak to a solicitor.
Most of them. We can clone the chip on 90% of cars found in the Australian market (not overseas or European cars).
We can for most Australian models. It will depend on what the model is and if the car needs a transponder chip to start the vehicle. Knowing the correct year and model of your vehicle is VERY IMPORTANT. Transponders have changed the game in automotive security and it’s not just a simple case of cutting a key anymore.
No Transponder – Most cars made before 1996
With cars made prior to transponder chips, we can do virtually 100% of them. Call for more information.
Yes it requires a transponder (most after 1998)
We can cut & program keys for most commonly driven cars and we are constantly adding new ones to our list. Some cars unfortunately are still beyond our technical ability. Please call us for more information on whether we can help with your vehicle.
Remote keys – (Many after 2005)
At the moment we can do a limited range of remote keys, mainly Holden Commodores VS – VE. We can produce standard transponder keys that mechanically open the door and start the vehicle but don’t have the central locking functionality. We also have a range of after-market remotes for many cars. Please call for more information.
Again it depends on the model of the vehicle. Most times it is caused by wear and tear. We are able to replace or repair ignition barrels for some common makes and models. We regularly repair Commodores from VN to VZ and some older Toyotas with this issue. Call for more info.
Yes. 90% of the time we are able to remove the piece and cut a new key. Sometimes it might be necessary to replace the ignition barrel. Call for more information.
We are capable of opening most Australian and imported models. There are some models that we are still in the process of developing methods of opening. Call for more information.
