Key cutting is a process of making an exact copy of your original key or an entirely new key. However, it is always recommended by locksmiths that you should have at least one set of spare keys. If you happen to misplace your keys, don’t panic, call us and we will assist in resolving the problem and gain you access to your property in a timely manner.
There are two types of key cuttings that are widely used by the locksmiths:
1. Mechanical Key
Mechanical key copying is the simplest processes to replicate a key, available in many places but often performed by staff with no training which can create issues. For example, there needs to be a constant resetting and cleaning of the machine for accuracy of the cut - so maintenance and training to use equipment properly is essential.
Little things like, too much pressure on the key carriage alters the accuracy, not setting the keys to the key stop, not cleaning the key jaws, tipping the keys up or down can all affect the cut and cause the keys not to work.
At Diamond Lock & Security all our staff are highly skilled and trained and will get the key cut right every time.
2. Code Machine Cutting
of Keys to Factory Specifications.
This process isn't as popular as mechanical key cutting, but is used by a number of locksmiths to produce a key cut to factory specifications.
