Tradelocks Open Day
On the 9th of July, for one day only, Tradelocks will be opening their doors to locksmiths and valued customers alike, giving them the opportunity to bag some bargains, witness live product demonstrations and meet industry leading professionals.
More than just an Open day
It's promised to be a day of deals and discounts, free food and fun; taking place on the 9th of July 2016, with doors opening at 9.30am - Tradelocks Open Day is back!
Marketing Manager, Ben Jennings commented, "This is not your average open day; we will be giving all those attending an exclusive opportunity to get their hands on some fantastic, one time only deals, with all of our biggest discounts being reserved for the day! The event last year was a massive success, and we couldn't disappoint those who have hoped for another this year."
The event will be held at Tradelock's premise in Whitefield, Greater Manchester. There will be a FREE buffet and refreshments put on for everyone in attendance and pickups will be arranged from major local transport links for all those who will be travelling to Manchester for the event. Tradelocks will be giving away free goody bags and will be holding competitions and giveaways all day.
Ben commented on what to expect from the day, "This is more than just a product exhibition; it is an opportunity to shop the latest tools at the best prices. We will be putting on live demonstrations throughout the day on a wide range of products so professionals can see how they work before they buy. A host of experts and product manufacturers will be there to give on hand hints and advice; you can't get this kind of professional guidance buying products online or over the phone, so industry professionals need to head down and see what we have to offer!"
What can you expect to see?
Keyline will be in attendance, giving customers an opportunity to talk to the manufacturers themselves. They'll be putting on demonstrations of their cutting machines as well as ID46 and ID48 key cloning.
There will be the opportunity to buy the newly launched glass transponder chips. These new innovations from Keyline offer a cloning solution to around 90% of cars on the road.
They'll be hands on training and live demonstrations throughout the day on a range of Genuine Lishi car opening tools. Locksmith professional Martin Pink will be leading the demonstrations which will include using the new VAG HU162 8, 9 and 10 cut locks, the VA2 lock using the 1234Q5678H series and the new VAC102 ignition tools - as well as many other industry favourites. Martin will be available to answer any questions and share his expert knowledge on the day.
There is no simpler way to program cars than with Truecode, and Tradelocks will be putting on demonstrations using live cars. Attendees will be shown how to code keys to a Fiat Punto, a Nissan Qashqai and Renault Modus vehicles.
Making a new key for a Volkswagen vehicle from between 2009 and 2013, when all keys have been lost can be complicated - but SuperVAG is the solution. Anyone who is interested in this key programmer will get a first-hand look at how it works with demonstrations on live cars and clock sets. Mileage correction, OBD programming and lost key solutions for the MK6 Golf will also be covered.
Demonstrations on Tango in unison with both SuperVAG for VAG group vehicles and Truecode for Fiat vehicles will be carried out throughout the day, as well as demos of the software as a standalone dump reader, cloner and chip producer. The software works flawlessly with SuperVAG and offers a safe lost key solution for later VAG vehicles like Golf MK6 using the NEC dash. Those visiting the Tradelocks HQ on the day will be show how they can save money by producing transponder chips from blank PCF chips, using Tango.
