Locksmith tools have keep up with a versatile industry. It almost, by its very nature, has to be able to bend to the will of the public that it serves. The locksmith profession, 4000 years old, is still a relevant and important aspect of human life and a testament to its willingness to conform to the development and advancement of technology. A locksmith has, in this period of four millennia, gone from someone who manufactures locks to someone who designs entire security systems.
Of course, with the advent of technology there would be a redefining of locksmith duties every couple of generations. One of the major changes and redefinitions would come in the form of automotive transportation. This new form of transportation required a sense of security, and wherever the need for security is there is a need for a sort of insurance of it. That is where the locksmith industry comes into play.
The automobile is a fantastic invention that has changed the face of not only human transportation but also human industry as well. We now had an efficient means to deliver goods and services. Of course, with that added security for this industry would come setbacks, in the form of lockouts and lost keys. Of course, locksmith companies like A-1 Locksmith has learned from these mistakes and are now experts at unlocking all manner of vehicles. Some of the tools they have at their disposal are:
- Slim Jims have been mentioned on this blog before, but are a very important locksmith tool. They are long, flat pieces of metal with hooked ends that are to be used by locksmith professionals to unlock vehicles by accessing the locking mechanism directly.
- J and L tools are used to serve the same end: to unlock a vehicle where the keys have either been left in the vehicle or misplaced. The only difference is, of course, the name, basic shape, and application of each tool. J tools have, of course, j-shaped ends and are used to work on locks that are raised on the inside of the door frame. L tools have l-shaped ends and go to work on trickier locks.
- Auto jigglers is a device that resembles a set of blank keys. Each auto manufacturer uses a unique set of keys in their vehicles, and the jiggler key is merely a blank of a variety of these unique keys, ones that can be matched to a vehicle and used to unlock it.
