Types of Key Cuts
A house key is the most common type of key. There are two main types of house keys. The older form is a lever lock key.
These keys are usually slightly bigger and heavier than their more modern counterparts; the pin-tumbler lock key. With a pin-tumbler key
there are grooves on both sides of the key blade and it is slightly smaller and lighter. Both types of keys will have an identifying
code on the key and a corresponding code on the lock that it is designed to fit. You can use these codes to help generate an order for your replacement keys.
Padlock keys come in a wide range of sizes and types, from a small basic key, to a complex high security key.
The range of manufacturers of padlock include; Abus, ASEC, Chubb, Cisa, Ingersoll, Kryptonite, Master Locks, Mul-T-Lock, to name but a few.
A common problem with finding the code for a padlock key is corrosion, as many padlocks are used as part of an outdoor security
measure and therefore subject to adverse weather conditions. If you can identify the brand and code of the padlock then there will be no
problem in generating a replacement key.
Roof Rack Keys
With all of the outsize goods that people transport as part of a modern busy lifestyle such as bicycles, surfboards,
kayaks and even skiing equipment there are also a wide variety of types of roof racks being used. All of the major manufacturers
such as Mont Blanc, Handirack and Thule use different types of keys as part of the security measures on these systems. Finding replacement keys for roof
racks can be done with the manufacturer, type and code from the lock on the rack system.

Window keys are notoriously small and as a result are susceptible to damage. Another problem with window keys
can be identifying the type of window that the key is required for, as they often do not carry a brand or logo. There are a wide range of window
manufacturers and suppliers to choose from including Avocet, Cotswold, Ingersoll, Premier and Shaw. Some window keys
have the brand as well as the key codes embossed onto the keys. If the replacement keys you require are for lost keys you
can usually locate the manufacturer’s brand and codes on front doors, or patio doors, which have been fitted with the windows.
Mortice locks are more likely to be found on older style doors and require a heavy long key, usually with a cylindrical
barrel rather than a key blade. Replacing a mortice lock is a labour intensive process and will require woodworking skill to avoid
damaging the door. In some cases, if a mortice lock is damaged, the door itself will need replacing. There are many different mortice
lock manufacturers with the most common being Chubb, Squire, Union and Yale. Owing to the age of these locks some manufacturers are no
longer in operation, but replacement keys can be obtained by using the name of the brand and the code of the key.
