NYC Car Keys, which is a 24/7 FAST EMERGENCY LOCKSMITH SERVICE, offers the following services in the Chinatown area:


Changing the lock, allowing a different key to operate it.

Replace Lost Car Keys

Cut a new key using a mobile-unit.

Replace Car Locks

Removing the locks located on the car in order to operate for a different set of keys.

Ignition/Transponder Keys

The chip in transponder keys emits a signal to a receiver in the ignition. If this “immobilizer” detects the wrong signal — meaning that the wrong key is in the ignition — the vehicle will not start.

Removal of Broken Car Keys

When a key has been broken off in a car lock, both the key has been destroyed and the lock rendered unusable. If the lock was locked when the key was broken, the lock cannot be opened.

High Security/Laser Cut Keys

These keys have built-in built-in transponder chips and they need to be programmed at the dealership or by a locksmith. Laser (sidewinder) style keys can be cut and programmed for all makes and models.

Car Lockout/Opening

Utilizing specific auto entry tools including lock picks and wedges, cars can be opened seamlessly and quickly.

Emergency Trunk Opening

Trunks of any make or model with broken locks or lost keys can be opened.

Key Repair

Damaged keys, or keys that have been compromised by getting stuck or locked in the lock/ignition of vehicle can be repaired.


“After shopping in Chinatown, I headed back to my car to drop some stuff before heading out for karaoke birthday celebration. Once I got to my car, I couldn’t find my keys ANYWHERE! I started to panic, realizing I’d probably lose my reservation and deposit on the karaoke room I’d rented for my friends. After searching Yelp, I found NYC Car Keys and their glowing reviews and contacted them. In no time, NYC Car Keys came to me and got me into my trunk! They even made me a replacement key AND I made it to karaoke on time! Thanks NYC Car Keys!” -Alyssa M., New Jersey
