High-quality key cutting

Did you know that not all key cutting services are the same? There a few things you should know before getting your key cut:

  1. Using the original key is going to get you the best possible outcome because it will have the highest accuracy. Duplicating from worn/duplicate keys can amplify any differences even if they are very slight and the key may not work.
  2. There are two main types of keys: regular and high-security. You can have regular keys cut anywhere including local hardware stores, and they are cut to work in regular mortise and cylinder locks. High security keys are more complex to cut and they are used where high-security is required such as in homes, commercial spaces, offices, warehouses and stores.
  3. For the best outcome, both regular and high-security key cutting should be completed by a professional locksmith such as Anytime Locksmiths.
    Having a key cut at a local hardware store or even cutting it yourself has the following issues:

    1. Small selection of key blanks: most hardware stores or non-specialist key cutters only have a small selection of blank keys to cut from. This makes it incredibly hard to get the same accuracy and often these keys will get stuck, not go in or not turn. Anytime Locksmith stocks 4000+ key blanks so we can ensure your key is matched perfectly.
    2. Poor equipment: non-specialist stores that attempt key duplication often have outdated or older equipment that can’t achieve the highest accuracy possible when key cutting.
    3. Non-experts: having any sales person cut your keys rather than a professional locksmith can not only stop you from getting the best duplicate key, but can even damage your original key. An intimate knowledge of locks and keys is required to achieve the best results when duplicating any key.
