How Do Car Keys Break Inside a Lock or Ignition?
Car keys are durable, but they aren’t unbreakable. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much for a key to snap. Your bad luck can be compounded if your key breaks in the middle of the night in an unfamiliar place or during freezing winter temperatures. Even if you happen to have a spare key, it’ll be rendered useless with the broken portion of the key stuck in the slot.
Some of the reasons keys can break when inserted inside a lock or ignition include:
- General wear and tear over the years
- Moisture inside a lock that may have frozen from cold temperatures
- Small cracks in the key
- Handling the key with needlessly excessive force
- Lack of lubrication on the key
- Extreme changes in weather
- Debris accumulated inside a lock that impedes the key’s movement
No matter the reasons your key snapped, you need help quickly. By calling F.A. Locksmith, you can rest assured that we will respond promptly and move with a sense of urgency to help you out.

Reliable Broken Key Extraction Services Across Knightdale, Wake Forest, Holly Spring & Surrounding Areas
When a key has broken off inside a lock, there’s a chance that you may be able to extract it yourself, but that’s only if the key breaks in a way that leaves part of the key sticking out of the slot. This can enable you to possibly pinch it with your fingers and pull it out. After that, your locksmith can provide a replacement key. Often, the car key will break off flush in the slot so there’s no possibility to use your fingers or needle-nose pliers to pull it out.
For broken key extraction jobs, our locksmith uses specialized tools designed specifically for removing broken keys. These tools can safely remove the broken piece without damaging the lock.
