Why Get a Spare Key Made

Have you ever experienced being locked out of your own house? If so, then you might want to consider having a spare key in order to prevent this from happening again. We at Nationwide Locksmith can help create an extra key for you. But if you’re wondering why you need to have a spare key around, here are a few reasons to consider:

Why You Need a Spare Key

You might think locksmiths and a key copy are no longer necessary since we already have tons of new technology every day. However, there are still a lot of people who lock their houses with traditional keys. If you are one of those people, then you should have a spare key made. 

Get a Backup Key Made

A common cause of a home lockout is a broken key. As time goes by, keys are subjected to wear and tear with all the pressure they go through every single day. Keys tend to get broken easily if they have been used for a long time. By paying attention to signs of wear and tear such as cracks along the shaft, you might be able to prevent it from breaking. 

By having a spare key to use in lieu of the original, you can significantly reduce the chances of your original key breaking. This is because your original key won’t be subjected to the pressure of being used for an extended period of time. With a spare key, you can easily switch between multiple keys and use it instead of the original one if the latter already has signs of wear and tear.

Spare Keys for Multiple Users

If you only have one set of keys but have several people living in your house, it might be hard for everyone to just depend on you for locking and unlocking the doors. Also, your keys will have a higher chance of getting lost due to the number of people who use the same key. However, with an extra key, every person living in your house will have his own key thus allowing much more convenience. 

Save Money with a Spare Keys

A key copy can help you save a lot of money. For example, with a spare key or several keys made, you no longer have to call for the services of a locksmith just to gain access to your house. In fact, there are a lot more downsides to not having a spare key compared to having one. In the event you lose your main keys, you will need our services at Nationwide Locksmith to make a spare key for you. This way, we can provide you with a set of spare keys you can use anytime an emergency lockout occurs.
