Making Duplicate Keys – Why and How?

Why Make Duplicate Keys?

There are many reasons why you should have your house keys or car keys duplicated. For one reason, if you should lose your original keys, you can have a spare key to open your house or car and help you out of a situation which would have been more hectic, there are several other good reasons. For example if you are in a a shopping mall parking area and you have lost your keys or locked your keys inside your car, even worse, if you are adventurous like me, you for a long drive away from the city and parked somewhere on the highway far from locality and suddenly you lose your keys.

  • Have your keys copied and give them to your close friends or relative:

    you should always have a set of keys with your close friend or relative who you trust. Someone who really cares about you and someone who can bring keys to you in case of an emergency such as if you lock your car keys  or lock yourself out of the house. It happens to the best of us and don’t think you are stupid if you did it. So as a measure of precaution, keep a set of your house key or home keys with someone close like your parents or siblings.

  • Have your car keys copied and keep one in your wallet or under your car:

    It is also a good idea to keep an extra key in your wallet. I have seen many people do this and I started doing this myself. This helps you to get your car door open in case you lock your car door and forget to take your keys out. Sometimes you will take your keys off the ignition but keep it on your seat or something then you will have hard time finding it. I myself keep my car key inside my wallet because of this.

  • Duplicate a set of duplicate keys should be with your spouse or girlfriend or boyfriend:

    Your significant other whether living with you or not, should also have a set of keys with them. There are good reasons for that as you may already figure out. Your spruce or girlfriend/boyfriend should have the same access facility to your car or house as you do.

  • A set of keys for your House Cleaners:

    If you have a regular house cleaner or someone who does maintenance for you who you rely on and trust,  you could easily keep a set of spare house keys and car keys made and kept at their disposal. This way they have access to your house for cleaning purposes and also for emergencies. But make sure you trust them 100% and can count on them on emergency situations.

Where to Go For a Perfect Key Duplication:

Any locksmith can make duplicate keys for you. If you in Melbourne CBD, there are few locksmiths that provide 24 hours emergency mobile services. One such locksmith is KZ Locksmiths in Armadale. They have been serving the Melbourne area and surrounding suburbs for a long time and they have been well renounced as being one of the most efficient locksmiths in Melbourne.  My personal experience was that at emergencies in the middle of the night, I had locked my car keys inside my car and I had called a dozen locksmiths until Kerry answered my call. Lucky for me I still remember the phone number 0403 110 047. or visit to find out more.
