Why Should I Use a Locksmith for Key Duplication?
When you think, "Where can I find a key maker near me?", it might be tempting to head to your local hardware or big box store. In the past decade, key duplication kiosks have even popped up as a convenient option for people on the go.
Unfortunately, there's a downside if you choose convenience over quality, such as:
• Incorrectly cut keys
If the incorrect blank is used to create a key, it won't open your lock.
• Demage to lock mechanisms
A poorly cut key can cause damage to internal locking mechanisms or get stuck and break off inside a lock, which will ultimately cost more to replace.
• Unable to determine if the original key is worn
Sometimes the problem isn't how a key is cut, but rather the condition of the original key. If the original key (master key) is very old it may have been worn down over time. Only a very experienced key maker with an eye for detail would be able to notice this nuance.
• No warranty or insurance on the key duplicates
If for any reason your key breaks or doesn't work, don't expect to seek repairs or replacements furnished by a big box store. You're simply out of luck.
The lesson here is this: If you need duplicate keys, make sure you work with a licensed, insured locksmith to get a perfectly cut key the first time.
