It happens. You insert your key to open your car door and it doesn’t work. It could be the wrong key, or something could be wrong with the blade.
You give it a tug and then you feel it — your key breaks in your hand and the part that’s still stuck in the car door is left inserted in the lock. You try what you can to get it out (a paperclip, toothpick, packing tape), but it just won’t budge.
Don’t wonder how to extract a broken key. Metrolock has you covered.
