Automotive Locksmith

We’re Your Local Automotive Locksmith Expert

With an old school metal car key, you have to have it in your hand to start the ignition or lock your car door when you get out. So it’s easier to remember to take it with you. But with today’s remote keys and key fobs, it’s so easy to jump out of the car and leave them sitting on the console. If you’re locked out of your car, need a key copy, or need lock or ignition repair, call Hartman’s Locksmith. We are your go-to local car locksmith in the Chicagoland area, and we’ve got you covered for all your car emergencies and locksmith needs. Contact us or call us 24/7 at 847-409-0750.

We Can Handle All Your Car, Van, and Truck Locksmith Jobs

A client lost the transponder head key for their car, so we made two more for them. First, we cut the keys on our laser-cutter (which you can see in the background), and then we programmed the fob part on the top of the key.
