At Keys4U, our locksmiths approach key cutting with a blend of skill, precision, and attention to detail that ensures each duplicate key fits seamlessly into your lock.

Understanding Key Cutting

Key cutting is crafting a duplicate key that perfectly matches the original key's specifications. This is a challenging feat, considering the complex inner workings of most locks. A minor deviation in the shape or size of a key can result in jammed locks, frustration, and additional expenses.

The Key Cutting Process

The key-cutting process involves several steps:

  1. Analysis: The locksmith carefully examines the original key's shape, size, and any unique features that must be replicated.
  2. Clamping: The original key is securely clamped in the key-cutting machine.
  3. Precision Cutting: Using the information gathered during analysis, the machine precisely cuts the duplicate key, creating an identical pattern.
  4. Finishing: The duplicate key may undergo additional finishing touches to ensure a smooth fit.
