Vendor Demo

Education & Fellowship between Locksmiths

Just Cars promotes education and encourages our vendors to demonstrate and educate their products on the show floor throughout the event.


Classes and demonstrations on all of our automotive and motorcycle readers will be offered along with Tips and tricks for using the Accu-Reader tools and using all 4 of the HU-I00 IRT tools to remove the new GM Ignitions when no keys are present.  Be sure to stop by and see our new De-chipping tool for removing the transponder from broken or mis-cut transponder keys.


2018 was a transformational year for American Key Supply and in 2019 we’re coming out swinging. We’re working hard to stay on the bleeding edge of technology. Our product offerings have broadened and we’ve transformed ourselves from the ground-up in order to maintain the highest possible levels of customer service and informational accuracy. We’re working hand-in-hand with locksmiths all over the nation to bring you education and innovation like you’ve never seen before. Check out our booth and see what you’ve been missing!


During our stand-alone class, booth presentation and demonstration time we plan to educate the locksmith community on the following:

  1. What is out there now? Different types of new remotes and proxy keys for late model popular makes and mode We will focus on late model remotes for Ford, GM, Chrysler Corp (including Dodge, Jeep) Toyota/Lexus, Nissan/Infiniti vehicles and other brands if time allows.
  2. Interchangeability and compatibility of OEM remot This information could reduce the cost of doing business, as it reduces the inventory for automotive professionals. Car manufacturers often generate multiple part numbers for the same parts creating an illusion that those parts are different and not interchangeable. If you know how to tell which remotes are the same, despite the part number difference, you can cut your inventory of remotes and smart keys in half or less at the same time it will increase your profits.
  3. How to reuse and salvage remotes and smart k It’s a common misconception that used remotes or previously programmed smart keys are just junk and can’t be reused. We hear that even from some auto locksmith professionals, who simply throw those used key fobs away. The truth is some, if not most, can be rebladed, reused, reflashed, simply reprogrammed again, or sold for profit as is. We plan to demonstrate how to fix, re-blade and refurbished the most popular types of remotes and fobs. We also plan to demonstrate and explain how to flash some late model remotes to make it reusable again.
  4. Parts and rep This part of our presentation may be especially valuable for locksmiths who own a shop or have face to face contact with a customer. Some of your customers may not want to pay $200-300 to purchase another remote and pay for programming. Do not let anyone leave your store because the remote was too expensive to replace. Even if you did not make $100 or more on programming and cutting charges, you may be able to repair a key and make $30-50 in 3-5 minutes simply fixing the broken remote case, buttons or a blade. We will show you how easy it is to fix some common problems with remotes and keys in just a few minutes.
  5. Finally we would like to discuss some key issues in local small business marketing. We see many local business owners struggle with that constantly. Over the years, we have learned many simple tricks or solutions that are free to implement and simple to use those in order to take your business to another level. All you need is time and your laptop to take advantage of the free tools out there.
