The Locksmiths Automotive Assistant


I know we all hate subscription software but to ensure LARA gets continually updated and to keep the servers running it needs to be subscription based.

That said you get a 7 day trial with the 6 month subscription and 14 day trial with the 12 month subscription. Cancel before the 7 to 14 days and it will cost you nothing to trial LARA.

Now the Good Stuff!!

LARA is an App for the Automotive Locksmith running on your Phone or Tablet.

LARA makes Locksmiths lives a lot easier by putting
Key, Transponder, Remote & Lishi tool information right at your finger tips. 
As well as being able to decode the car lock and verify the bitting before you even remove your Lishi tool from the lock.


Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) library built right into LARA
☆ Voice commands whilst decoding to keep both hands free.
☆ KeyDIY The most comprehensive Reference library available on your phone
☆ Swipe from LEFT for menu (for phones without menu button)
☆ Decode with 1/2 cuts when your not sure of a depth.
☆ My Tools highlighter shows instantly which tools you currently have and what tools you need.
☆ Visual MACS validation as you decode your lock LARA will highlight impossible combinations.
☆ LARA Rekey now lets you choose wafers to swap around and returns a list of valid codes
☆ LARA Codes returns the valid bittings in a Cutting Tree to minimize key blank wastage and save time.
☆ On board transponder programming procedures.
☆ Remote programming procedures.
☆ Backup and Restore to your Drop Box. Means user files/notes can be Restored to all of your devices.

LARA started out life as Lishi Assistant but has grown far beyond this now.

LARA is firstly a notepad to record the decoded cuts of a car lock when decoded by a variety of tools. As you are decoding your lock with your Lishi 2 in 1 or Determinator tools or any other automotive reading tool, you can enter the cuts into LARA.
LARA will suggest which wafers are in the door lock for you. Once finished in many cases you can run your bitting through LARA Codes Online whilst still standing at the vehicle door. Or of course Instacode or similar code software to verify you have a valid code.

There is quite a lot of information that LARA has to help you along your way to making keys to that vehicle, such as:

☆ Vehicle make and general model information
☆ Code series used
☆ What wafers are likely to be in the door lock.
☆ Code rules which can help to ensure you are decoding each lock correctly.

LARA Plus is vehicle information I have gathered from personal
experience or have verified to me. I do not just look up books and add random data, so you will not find every vehicle in the world. At the moment there is information on around 1200 vehicles. Again this is information I have been able to verify.

Just like LARA Codes don't have all the codes just whats needed and what I have been able to gather.

Please note that whilst I have made every effort to ensure all data is correct there are bound to be errors and it is up to you to ensure you are using the correct equipment, keys, transponder, remotes and procedures.

App ChangeLog

  • Added new data and manufacturer logo. Need for future updates of database.

  1. G M-avatar

    I bought this app years ago when it was a onetime pay app. I never wanted the live resources that you later wanted a monthly payment for. Now the app is refusing to let me use it if I won't pay you monthly. The live version is for Australia and I am in the US. Either make what I paid for work or refund me as you are not living up to your end.

  2. T C-avatar

    I purchased this app when it first came available, I loved it and recommended it to many other locksmiths that also purchased it. Now I cant use it as it states " Please return to main menu and subscribe to use". After purchasing the app, now its trying to force me to pay again for a subscription. I cant even access my current tools for decoding. It's now back to old school with a pen and paper in hand. It's a shame the app has turned out this way. The link to email is also not working.

  3. Vincent Kane-avatar

    Great app. I woiuld give 5 star rating if app had space and depths conversion to decimal. I have trouble with metric. Will updates address this problem Thanks Vince

  4. Joel Hardeman-avatar

    If you've given this app a bad review because you don't know how to use it you should reconsider your choice of profession (assuming you're actually a professional). If anyone has an issue with it not working on on their phone just contact the developer and he'll fix it for you. Great app, would hate to be without it.

  5. Joshua Roberts-avatar

    Great app i use it everyday. Free version is handy but paid subscription has been a life saver Have recommended to everyone

  6. Javier Solis-avatar

    I just recently renew my subscription,great app I use it every day

  7. robbocop33 r-avatar

    Getting error initializing tts engine all the time in the app, fixed now, i uninstalled the day i installed it, was not what i was looking for, didn't get refund though! Now another problem, comes up specific vehicle details are only available when subscribed to Lara plus? What did i just pay for? Didn't i just subscribe?

  8. Bernard Molloy-avatar

    Fantastic App, so informative and helpful. Worth the subscription for codes alone. A+

  9. Peter Mohrmann-avatar

    App once worked had a great description of all the lishi tools and informative information about each keyway like MACS but now the app is completely blank when I tap on my tools and vehicles.

  10. Roman Hines-avatar

    App is not downloading, cant find support

    Awesome aid

  17. Thomas Cross-avatar

    It works great now! Old review for reference: Oddly enough, I checked it again after checking it yesterday and this morning and now it works great!! No updates either, so it may happen to other folks, but it's good now. The View Tools page no longer populates with any data other than the drop down list of cars at the top. I suspect it has to do with my new Android 9.0 update. Everything else seems to load, but I won't be sure until I renew my subscription.

  18. Brian K-avatar

    Bugs have been fixed and a few new options have been added. I like the tool checklist that was added. I love using this app when I'm reading depths.

  19. John Platt-avatar

    Initial purchase has no benefits whatsoever! As such must not risk the upgrade! It's a money grab.

    there's no point in even listing this app in the play store for $5.99 paid if you're just going to charge us a subscription fee just to use the app as well. It's a good thing i picked this app for free thanks to PAGF, or my review would have been 1000x nastier than this. I definitely would have immediately smashed the refund function just because of that plus subscription thing.

  21. Ilkin Jamalli-avatar

    I would the app -10 for usefulness. Other than that it asks for a subscription fee of £30 for a "googlable" car spec. Should be call I am rich and duff instead.

  22. A Google user-avatar

    Excellent, especially the code fill. Discover the missing cuts on the fly as you input known cuts from your decoder of choice.

  23. Lindsay Ragg-avatar

    Love your work Tony comes in handy A lot

  24. Nick Donoghue-avatar

    Great work!

  25. Robert Wilkins-avatar

    After installing most times it will not open and I have to Uninstaller and cut phone off then back on followed by installing again.

  26. Freddy G-avatar

    How to get Desktop version, reg , didnt get the link

  27. Deeann Rice-avatar

    I have the Samsung note but it wont finish and load

    Thanks Tony great app

  29. tony o-avatar

    Very handy app use all the time.

  30. Donald Held-avatar

    After last update my Samsung S5 gets error message after a few seconds of use. Screen goes black before I can copy error. Have to pull battery. Not fun with Otter case. Need fix or refund.

  31. Danny Brownson-avatar

    This is a nice app. One thing that I would ask for the US market is to add Taylor key blanks. That would give us our X part numbers.

  32. Chic Hopson-avatar


  33. Jason Courtney-avatar

    Use it everyday!

  34. Gilbert Agront-avatar

    Very good
