Advanced Diagnostic Pin Saver Adapter | Penn Locksmith

Advanced Diagnostics has released a new product that locksmiths are sure to love, especially those who are constantly completing car key services during which they must use the Advanced Diagnostic Pro tool. The new product is an accessory to the existing Pro and Classic testers which are used to program transponder car keys to a vehicle’s computer. This new product, the Advanced Diagnostic Pin Save Adapter helps to reduce the wear and tear that can occur on the Advanced Diagnostic tester tools mentioned above. At a small cost, this adapter is able to save locksmiths money and hassle in the long-run, just as a locksmith aims to do when completing car key services for one of their customers.


What does the Advanced Diagnostic Pin Saver Adapter Do?

Without the Advanced Diagnostic Pin Saver Adapter, auto locksmiths are constantly plugging and unplugging the pins which allow for cord connection can become damaged. Since there are 25 pins inside of the connector it can be easy for just one to become damaged, which would disable the locksmith’s Advanced Diagnostic tester. In order to prevent this, the Advanced Diagnostic Pin Save Adapter attached to the tester and can remain connected even after use. By having this function the adapter is able to prevent much of the wear and tear that occurs during the insertion and removal of the master OBD cord. If wear and tear such as this can not be kept to a minimum then a repair for the locksmith’s Advanced Diagnostic may be necessary. This can be a costly repair for a locksmith to need to have completed.

Why are Advanced Diagnostic Tools Important?

While locksmiths have been familiar with the need for programming tools that can be provided by Advanced Diagnostic, some customer may not fully realize the need for such advanced technology for car keys. Transponder car keys have made it much more difficult for locksmiths to complete replacement car keys and made it necessary for tools like Advanced Diagnostic testers. Testers allow for a locksmith to properly program the transponder chip inside of the car’s key to the car’s computer. Without properly communicating chips, a car key will not start a transponder system vehicle, even if the key is cut perfectly.

The technicians at Penn Locksmith, as well as many locksmiths around the world, rely on the technology that Advanced Diagnostic produced to be able to offer car key services as conveniently as possible for customers. For locksmiths who do choose to purchase the Advanced Diagnostic Pin Saver Adapter, there are long-term savings. Being able to avoid the need to send an Advanced Diagnostic tool away for repair keeps business flowing and reduces repair costs, in some cases it may be possible for locksmiths to pass this savings on to their customers. It certainly remains to be seen how effective this new Advanced Diagnostic tool is at preventing wear and tear, but if it delivers as promised, locksmiths will be in for a pleasant surprise. At a cost of just around $16 it would definitely be worth the small investment for any locksmith who is using an advanced diagnostic tool to program their car keys.

The benefits of Re keying Locks for Your Home or Business!

One of the best services that Penn Locksmith has to offer is the re-key of any lock. When compared with changing an entire lock set, re-keying makes for a much more economical choice which, in some cases, can achieve the same goal that changing your entire lock can. Both home and business owners can see great benefits from having their locks re-keyed by one of Penn Locksmith’s professionals and with 24 hour availability they are able to assist you at the time which is most convenient for you.
A re-key is the process of our locksmith adjusting the pins inside of the tumbler so that the key way is activated by a complete different key. The result of this is two fold, one is that all of the previous keys which worked on the lock are now ineffective, and second, you will have a new unique key. For home owners having a re-key completed is the perfect idea when you have just moved into a new home and do not want anyone who may have previously had a key access your home. Homeowners may also be interested in this service if they have recently had a roommate or other tenant move out. At about half the price of having your entire lock changed, a re-key is the much more economical choice, but still achieves the same goal that ensures the security of your home. If you have lost all copies of the key to your home, a re-key is also a great choice, since the main reason for having the re-key completed is not due to the failure of the lock.

Business owners can also see great benefits from having their locks re keyed and in many scenarios that are like that of a homeowner. Any business which recently had employee turnover would be a great candidate for re-key to ensure that no former employees will have the same access they did while they were working there. Another re-keying service that can be beneficial to business owners is having a master key system installed. What a master key system entails is our commercial locksmith setting the pins inside of your locks through the location in a way that allows for an easy delegation of access. This means that a business owner can use one key to open every lock at their business, while still being able to provide a different key to employees that only offers a certain level of access. This is perfect for the business owner who may have lower level employees locking the store at night, or opening in the morning.
Whether for home or business, re-key is an extremely efficient and effective service to have completed. In the case that your lock is becoming faulty, does not properly fit or is low security, a re-key would not be a good choice of service for you. However if your locks function perfectly now and you only wish to change the key that can engage that lock, then re-key is perfect service choice for you.
