Newark SPARE KEY DUPLICATION
The days of poor service and non-working duplicate keys made at hardware and department stores are over. We are pleased to offer on-site key duplication in the metro area.
Key Copies Made at Your Door
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.

It used to be that the only option you had to get a key duplicated was to go to the local hardware store. Now that local hardware stores are more rare, some people think they have to go to the local giant retail chain instead. At those stores you might have to get a teenager to take a break from stocking the candy aisle to cut your key.
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.
Another important point to consider is that stores often can't duplicate keys to more advanced high-security locks. If you want to be absolutely certain that all of your backup keys are made correctly, Give us a call. We take care of all your spare key needs the right way the first time, and we stay on site to make sure that everything is working the way it should.
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.
Stopping to take inventory of your key situation could be a move that saves you a lot of money down the road. Do you have adequate key backups in place for your home and garage?
