Different Types of Car Keys - What You Need To Know
Life happens. If you’ve lost your car keys, don’t panic. Call your reliable locksmith; call Mr. Gnome Locksmith. For many different reasons people have called us to come when they need new car keys, and first we start off by talking to them about the different types of car keys that are available to them. 

Traditional Key: This is the most basic type of car key available. This type of key is typically used on older cars and doesn’t have any encoding.
• Transponder Key: This type of key has a microchip in the key handle and is much more secure than traditional car keys. They are a bit pricier to replace.
• Switchblade Key: This type of key acts similar to a switchblade knife. There will be a button that will allow you to access and put away the key whenever you need.
• Smart Key: This type of key is able to turn your car on with a press of a button. It does not need to be inserted into the ignition.
