1. How much will it cost to get a key cut?

Your average house key will cost no more than a few pounds but higher security keys can cost substantially more. We will require a picture of the lock in question to correctly quote a price and advice you of your options.

2. What if it's an emergency?

Cusworth Master Locksmiths carry the equipment necessary to cut and copy keys on the go, but some keys can only be cut using computer-controlled equipment in our workshop. We also offer a 24hr Emergency Locksmith Service, and if you live in Cheshire, Stockport or South Manchester we can usually be with you within 45 minutes.

3. Can a broken key be copied?

Yes, a broken key can be cut and copied. An experienced locksmith will easily be able to cut you a brand-new key.

4. Can you tell if a key has been copied?

An experienced locksmith can identify a copied key. There is no simple trick to this though so it is not normally possible for an untrained eye to identify if an original key has been duplicated.

5. What if I’ve lost my key and I need a new one? Can I get a key cut without an original?

Usually it’s not economical to cut a key wihtout an original unless you have the serial number. If you do have the serial number, a replacement can be re-generated.

6. How long does it take to cut a key?

A normal house key usually takes a matter of seconds to cut. However, several factors can effect the time it takes – cutting a key from code, from example, takes longer than cutting from a duplicate.

''Danny provided us with professional advice on the types of locks suitable to the property,
fitted the locks and provided spare keys all on site. He is a master locksmith who is
knowledgeable about the products available as well as being professional. Thoroughly
recommend using his services.''
Andrew Shaw

Wilmslow, Cheshire

''Danny is an absolutely incredible locksmith. When we first moved into our house, he came by and gave us the most stress free service we've had since. When we asked about extra keys, he cut them for us and dropped them off!

We've asked him about cutting some new keys since, and his prices are so good I can't believe it! He's been incredibly helpful too. If you want a properly personal service, definitely get in touch.''


''We have tried for years to get rock door keys cut and never found anyone. This company persisted until he succeeded so thank you very much!!''
Toby Broome

Macclesfield, Cheshire

''Danny helped solved my problem with a tip he passed on for me to try before he came out; and it worked. He didn't need to do that, but he was happy that to help find the easiest
solution if there was one, and in this case, it paid off. What a star. I am absolutely clear he
would get my custom in future.''

''Danny was great for a last minute commercial key cut - easy to communicate with and came to our office within a couple of hours. Quick and professional. Would definitely recommend.''
