Removing broken Key from Lock

How much of the key broke off?

Can you see the end of the key when you push the dust flap aside?

We use dental picks for extracting broken keys, you have any lying around? ;D

Dont push the key further into the lock, it can only come out one way.

If worse comes to worse pull the lock out and send it up to me.

Take the lock out of the car and bang it really hard on a piece of wood to shake the key out far enough to grab with the tweezers? Might have to jamb the tab open while you do it, perhaps a two handed operation on the edge of the kitchen table with one hand holding a pin to hold he tab open. Failing that take it apart or have it taken apart.

You would be better off just taking the lock into a locksmith your in wellington right? Go to Master lockamiths and get them to do it be around 25 dollars be worth it save you the pain of giving yourself a nice stab in the hand hahahahahahahahaha

How do you break a key in a lock anyways? Generally they seem to bend a bit before snapping and no lock should be that tight

Some would say i went full retard, some would say unlucky.

I put key in, turned it, boot unlocked, key stub came out, important part of key remained in lock.

I suspect it was already cracked, and its not something ya look at when opening the car each day, i'm just kinda glad it didn't come out in the ignition :-[

Impressed with your sensitivity. It shows a lot of courage.

There some stuff from shellys call "knead it" its like a metal putty, when kneaded together with the inner compound it become hard as metal, you could use a wax to prevent the sticking to the key lock.

knead some together (soft) and use it to attach to the broken key bit once harden It may just pull out or pull out enough to get a pliers on to it..

(my 2 cents)

Umm lets see I've only been a locksmith for about 12years and I would say that i have seen people try this before and it will all end in tears and more money wasted. Be smart and take it to a locksmith my 5bucks worth :)

Yeh will go to a locksmith, thats the easiest way methinks

I was however, thinking of jamming it open with a pin and then doing a few hard launches and hoping the inertia from the car will throw it out. Maybe in a school zone as i heard theres more grip there.
