Key Cutting

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. 

What can I cut keys for?

Key cutting is a process that can be used to duplicate keys for

  • Vehicles
  • Mailboxes
  • Houses
  • Apartments
  • Condominiums
  • Safes and vaults

Having duplicate keys comes in handy for families with a member who is on different schedules, cars that have multiple drivers, roommates in apartments, and businesses that need multiple keys to give certain team members access to safes or security measures

Other notes on key cutting.

There are many cheap and inexpensive options for creating new keys, but know that you are going to be getting what you pay for. Electing to use a key-cutting machine or service in a grocery store or department store is going to yield a low-quality key replica. We have often seen that these keys 

  • Will wear out quickly
  • Will break easily
  • Or will not work at all

Contact our experts at 469LockSmith so that we can cut your keys right the first time. Don’t risk another day that you could potentially get locked out of your car, your home, or your safe without any backups.
