3 Surefire Safety Guides for your Vehicle

by Bessie Beck

For some car owners, being in a situation where you have to use the services of an automotive locksmith is an experience that would rank last in your bucket list. It is because you only call an automotive locksmith if you have a problem with the lock system in your car. The subsequent inconvenience is usually frustrating, and only a locksmith can rectify the situation. That said, losing your car keys or damaging the lock mechanism is an opportunity to learn car security tips from a qualified professional. This article highlights surefire vehicular lock safety tips that are recommended by professional automotive locksmiths.

1. Install an Immobiliser -- With the advancement in automotive technology, car locksmiths have to stay up-to-date with vehicular lock system upgrades. One such update is the immobiliser which plays an integral role in a car's ignition system. Since modern car keys have a unique chip installed in them, the immobiliser reads the chip before initiating the ignition mechanism. If a wrong or duplicate key is used -- in the case of theft -- the immobiliser will not start the car because it won't recognise the key inserted. The same will happen if a burglar tries to hotwire your car. An immobiliser is thus one of the surest ways to keep your vehicle secure wherever you park.

2. Get Locks for Steering Wheel or Handbrake -- The other possible solution that automotive locksmiths recommend is getting locks for the steering wheel or the handbrake. In most cases, burglars tend to walk away from cars that have locks on the steering wheel and handbrake. It is because locks increase the chances of getting caught. Not only do burglars have to break into your car, but they still have to figure out how to pick the locks to get the car moving. It takes time; therefore, most burglars will not bother. Making your vehicle an unlikely target is, therefore, the primary objective of using handbrake or steering wheel locks.

3. Put a Tracker on your Keys -- If you can't find your car keys, automotive locksmiths advise that you first conduct a thorough search of your surroundings. Sometimes car owners believe that their car keys are lost when in real sense they are misplaced. However, your search can be frustrating if the search area is vast. The best approach is to install a tracker in your keys. Such a tracker can be in the form of a key chain that beeps when activated. Others trackers use a GPS tracking system that is accessible via a mobile application.
