Louisville SPARE KEY DUPLICATION
Everyone needs a backup key at some point. With our remote key cutting services, you can have those keys made at your home or office.
Duplicate Keys Made Anytime, Anywhere
Aside from the inconvenience, a common problem with going to a multi-purpose store to get a key made is that there is no guarantee it will be done correctly. You might get all the way home only to find that the key won't turn the lock over. Our locksmiths not only bring industry-leading expertise to your door, they make sure that everything works as it it supposed to before leaving.
Stores that offer key cutting services often have employees with minimal training doing the job, leading to potential mistakes. Our professional locksmiths make sure the job is done right the first time. You won't need to worry about a key failing you at a critical moment, or having to return to the store to have a mistake corrected.
We can help you with:
- Mailbox keys

- Garage Keys

When you call us, we come to you with the latest and best locksmith tools available in the industry. The advantage of hiring a professional locksmith equipped with professional tools is that you can be certain the job is done correctly the first time. This is especially important for those having multiple key copies made for a commercial property. Your keys won't fail you when you need them most, and you won't have to waste time and money returning to a store to have problems fixed.
We work out of the metro area and pride ourselves on our quick response times to local calls. Every facet of your key duplication can be done on site, even if you don't have the key to the lock available. Our process is far superior to bringing keys into a hardware store for copies. It eliminates the uncertainty of having an employee who is not properly trained in lock operations do it. The more complicated and high-security your lock is, the less likely a local shop is going to be able to duplicate it properly for you. For example, office buildings and corporate campuses often have trouble finding someone to take care of their key system needs. That's why a professional locksmith is necessary, and with our services you don't have to make an appointment or come to us. We'll meet you wherever you are at.
Though you see electronic locks and key cards more often these days, mechanical locks are still by far the most prevalent across all different types of applications (and especially in the area of residential locks). Keys for mechanical locks still have to be cut by someone trained to use the appropriate tools. The systems of springs and pins inside of a lock is very precise, so even tiny mistakes in cutting can cause a key to not do its job properly. If everything doesn't line up exactly as it is supposed to, you won't be able to open the lock. That's why you see so many problems with the cheap key duplication done by stores; it's not being handled by a specialist, and is usually done by someone who has one or two other jobs they are in a hurry to get back to. Of course, We can handle the duplication of electronic keys as well, but we know that many emergency calls are for home and auto situations where a mechanical key will need to be cut quickly and accurately.
Mechanical keys might seem simple, but even a tiny mistake in cutting can render the key inoperable. Unlike some jobs, key cutting has not been fully automated. There is no magical machine that a person with inexperience can put a key into and get an exact copy back. That's why it's important to have experienced locksmiths who do this every day cut your keys for you. We make sure that our trained locksmith technicians are up to date with all of the latest brands and security technologies on the market so that they can quickly respond to your needs without leaving the scene.
Testing the backup keys in the lock is an important part of the key making process that is often skipped over. Our locksmiths always try their work out and fix any issues that may arise while still on site, no matter the time of day. Why is it so important to have a professional cut and test your keys? It's because locks are complicated and precise mechanical devices, akin to a watch. It only takes one very small mistake for the key to be worthless. If the teeth of the key don't line the pins up exactly in the right position the lock will not open. Even a difference of just a millimeter can cause the key to fail, so you can see where it's easy for someone with limited training to make a mistake. Why wait until a critical moment to learn that the key hasn't been cut right?

Why Spare Keys Are Necessary
Keys get lost all the time. Sometimes they are stolen, and sometimes they even break. If you're out of keys for a particular lock, it's possible for a locksmith to fashion a new one from scratch by examining the lock. The easiest solution to a lost key is a backup stored in a safe location, however. Many people leave their backup keys with family members or trusted friends in case of a lockout emergency. Leaving them in a safe deposit box at the bank or a similarly secure location is also an option. If you're unsure of how to store your duplicate keys safely, we can give you some suggestions.
Spare keys are something that many people don't think about until it is too late. While it is certainly possible for locksmiths to make new keys just by accessing the lock, you can avoid that whole process by having an adequate set of backup keys on hand. Take some time to check over your various home, work and vehicle keys and think about what would happen if each went missing tomorrow. Would you know how to immediately restore access? If not, you should give some serious thought to a duplicate key plan. We're happy to help with advice, and can come to you to make keys whenever it is most convenient to you.
A complete set of spare keys is the best way to prevent lockout emergencies at home, at work or on the road.
