Car door locks
How does the mechanical car door lock work?
The lock is comprised of little plates or detents. Only when all the detents are assembled in the right order, will the associated car key turn the lock. This is because the mechanical construction of the lock has exactly the same combination of positions as the recesses in the car key. These dimensions (depths) are converted by the manufacturer into an indirect key code. This code forms the ‘DNA’ of each car lock or key. Car Lock Systems supplies car keys – and locks to the right code.
Mechanical key code
With a broken car door lock, we provide a new lock with exactly the same key code as the original lock. This will allow the existing car key to be used both with the existing and new door locks. We can also determine the mechanical key code based on a picture of the existing key. This is useful if the key code is not known.
Ensure regular maintenance
We recommend that car locks are treated with a special lubricant for this now and again, and which is available from our webshop. Car door locks are sometimes covered with a plastic cap. The cap can be opened with the point of a car key – often from the bottom.
