Can a locksmith make a house key without the original?

If you’ve misplaced your only set of keys and want a replacement as soon as possible, a professional locksmith will be able to reverse engineer your lock to create a brand new key. There are two main ways we do this:

Crack the code

Typically, locksmiths use what is called a key code to create new keys. This is a number that is stamped on your original key (or in some cases, like cabinet locks, stamped onto the lock itself); with higher security locks, you may also receive a key code card. Obviously, without access to the original, this is a little more difficult. However, with certain models, it is possible for a licensed locksmith to obtain the code directly from the manufacturer themselves.

Otherwise, with some models, we can pick the lock, disassemble it and crack the code. We look at the type of pins used and the order they are used in, taking direct measurements. From this, locksmiths can then create a brand new copy of the key.

Make an impression of the lock

The other way that our residential locksmiths can make spare keys without the original is by making an impression of the lock. This is an efficient process that will quickly duplicate a key; however, it takes a skilled locksmith with years of practical training to pull off effectively.

We take a blank key and insert it, turning it in the lock. This creates marks, which we can then cut to shape the key. Our locksmiths will then repeat the process, turning the blank in the lock over and over again until all the correct marks have been made.

Bronze blanks are typically best to use for this process: they are soft enough that they will pick up the right markings quickly, but strong enough that they will not snap or bend inside the lock.

If it is your door locks that you have lost the keys to, then you may want to consider replacing the keys and locks to prevent a security breach. If your key is out there somewhere, you’ll sleep better at night knowing you have the only working copy. We can also rekey your door locks, changing the code inside the lock without having to replace the lock itself. This is far cheaper than replacing the entire lock and is just as secure.

Need new or replacement keys? You’ve come to the right place! Our locksmith service in Melbourne can cut keys to code and repair, rekey or replace all sorts of locks around the home.

Moving house? You need a new key

If you’ve just moved into a new home or apartment in Melbourne, one of the first things you need to do is to invest in a brand new set of keys.

Rather than completely replacing the door lock, a more affordable option available to you is rekeying. This means that you can use the existing lock, but change the combination so that the old keys no longer work.

Whatever you choose, our locksmiths can make sure that the installation goes smoothly so that your new home will be safe and secure.
