Overland Park 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.
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.
Don't take a risk by having a low-level retail employee cut a key for you while they're juggling tasks in three other departments. Our locksmiths are fully trained and make backup keys regularly.
We duplicate all types of keys including:
- Master Keys
- Office Keys
- Car Keys
- House Keys
- Garage Keys
- Transponder Keys
- Mailbox keys
We take pride in our reputation for customer service and getting your key replacements to you in a timely manner. When you call for our on-site key duplication service, you can put your mind at ease knowing the job will be handled swiftly, efficiently and at a competitive rate. Our technicians won't leave the scene until they have verified your new keys are fully working and that you're satisfied with their work.
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.
Why is precision so important when creating a backup key? Most lock systems operate using a series of pins that are connected to very small springs. The teeth on your key are set to push those pins inward to a unique pattern. If one pin is off by even a hair, the lock won't open. Each of the pins has to line up perfectly with the pattern the lock has been set to. Since the key creation process involves precision cutting and grinding, it's easy for someone who is inexperienced to make small mistakes that aren't easily caught by the human eye. This is the root cause of the disappointing rates of failure in the cheap key backups made at stores.
