Types of Car Keys

When people think of keys, many will immediately think of the classic bronze tool people see to unlock their doors. Were they to think of their car keys, it would be the image of a metal shaft with a plastic handle. This has been the standard for cars for decades, but this design is quickly becoming outdated. Now, there are various styles of car keys you may see or even acquire.

For instance, there are switchblade keys; where you push a button and the key will appear from the side so it is never bent while in hiding. It may also come with buttons on the top for you to unlock the car, lock it, open the trunk and even send out a blaring signal to find your car. However, the biggest advancement in this form of technology is the development of smart keys.

These styles of keys don’t even need to be installed into your car door or ignition to get it started. You can just have your key within a general distance of the vehicle and it will turn on. Although, for people who want extra security should look into using valet keys, which are made to prevent valet drivers from stealing your belongings and only parking the automobile.

Can a Hardware Store Copy a Car Key?
