A professional locksmith uses a variety of tools and techniques to open locks, make keys, and perform other related tasks. Some of the most common tools and techniques used by locksmiths include:

  1. Lock picking: This involves using specialized tools to manipulate the internal components of a lock in order to open it without a key.
  2. Key making: Locksmiths can make keys using key cutting machines, which are specialized machines that use a template or code to cut a new key to match the existing lock.
  3. Lock repair: Locksmiths can also repair locks that have been damaged or are not working properly. This may involve replacing worn or broken parts, or making adjustments to the lock.
  4. Master keying: A locksmith can also create a master key, which can open multiple locks. This is commonly used in hotels, offices, and apartment buildings.
  5. Access control: Locksmiths can install and maintain electronic access control systems, such as keycards or biometric scanners.
  6. Safe cracking: Locksmiths can open safes and other security containers that have been locked or forgotten combination.
  7. Car lockout service: Locksmiths can also open car doors if the keys are locked inside the car or lost.

To become a professional locksmith, one must typically complete an apprenticeship, or attend a trade school to learn the necessary skills and techniques, as well as pass any required certification or licensing exams.
