Locksmith with all the right tools

We only use the latest in locksmith tools for your automotive needs

I remember the first time I locked my keys in my vehicle. I was in college and was in a rush to get to my next class across campus. As I searched relentlessly for my keys in my book bag with no keys to be found, a sinking feeling came across me as I peered into my vehicle’s window to only see my keys sitting on the driver’s seat. Late for class and in a hurry, I frantically tried to find a 24-hour locksmith service that could help me immediately. To my dismay, all the locksmiths I contacted said I would have to wait at least an hour for their services. That’s when I knew Long Island needed a reliable, prompt, 24-hour locksmith service – and thus the idea for Locksmith Long Island, NYC was born.

In 2002, after graduating with a Business Degree from The College of Old Westbury, Jason Miller and his brother, Michael, established Locksmith Long Island City with the company’s core service values being centered on prompt customer service.

We also offer state-of-the-art technology and tools such as Cut Transponder Keys and VAT Keys.

The VAT system (Vehicle Anti-Theft System) was introduced by GM in the 1990’s to prevent auto theft. The VAT system protects the vehicle by reading one of the 15 resistor values. If the wrong value is used then the vehicle will not start for approximately 10 minutes. Transponder keys or “chip keys” are similar to VAT keys, but are automotive ignition keys with signal-emitting circuits built inside. When the key is inserted into the ignition and turned to start, the vehicle’s computer sends a radio signal to the transponder. Transponders must reply with a valid code, otherwise the vehicle will not start.

With these tools we offer the following services for any vehicle:

  • Unexpected emergency lockout opening up
  • Destroyed key extraction
