If you have never lost a pair of keys before and only have one backup set, that can be incredibly risky. Every week we work with customers that lose the only pair of keys that they had available for their car or their home, and are rendered helpless.
Totally unable to access their house and drive their car, they call our locksmith technicians so that they are able to get back in, but what happens next? If their key is totally lost, how are they able to regain access to their home or drive their car?
Key cutting is the perfect solution for the above scenarios. The best way that you can stop this circumstance from happening altogether is to make sure that you have at least one copy of all of your important keys.
What is a key cutting?
Key cutting or a key duplication is the process of taking a key that you have (for your home, office, vehicle) and carefully replicating that key in every intricate detail. This gives you a backup or multiple backups in the event that you would lose one of the important keys in your life.
In the key cutting process, our skilled technicians use proper materials and a specialized piece of machinery that scans every edge and notch in your key, to create a perfect replica. The newly cut key will work exactly like the original key.
Why would I need key cutting services?
Key cutting services are incredibly handy in any circumstance which you may need to have backup keys. In virtually any situation that involves a lock or locking mechanism, you should consider cutting at least one other key in case of an emergency.
