Education is Our Priority
Still, there are millions of people who stick to the conventional way of protecting their home and valuables with locks operated by a key.
Carrying a bunch of keys around in your pocket might sound archaic, especially in the world where everything can be controlled from a smartphone. It must be said though, that keys are still a large and effective form of security.
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 promptly.
We, as a locksmith company, make it our priority to educate our customers with the right key maintenance procedures for their doors, windows and safes. These include:
- Checking the door properly to see that no hinges are loose
- The door has not simply shrunk in our dry heat or expanded in wet winter
- Making sure the key locks are correctly lubricated
- Spraying a lubricant (like Inox) inside keyholes to ensure key and the internals move correctly
Of Key Cuttings
That Are Widely Used by the Locksmiths
Mechanical key duplicating is the simplest processes to replicate a key. This service is available in many places, but often performed by staff with no training which can cause a host of issues. For example, there needs to be a constant resetting and cleaning of the machine for accuracy of the cut. This means maintenance and training to use equipment properly are essential.
Minor details such as too much pressure on the key carriage alter 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.
