You can copy the keys to most hardware stores, including Home Depot. Importantly, no hardware store has the ability to set a key computer correctly. In fact, the only ones I’ve ever met who could do it are all locksmiths.
The result is that hardware stores that cut keys are simply trying to make money by copying your key quickly. Sometimes their simple money plans work and their copy works pretty well.
Often the key doesn’t work and the place that cuts it hopes you don’t come back and insist they make a functional key. I know the Lowe business near me no longer guarantees the satisfaction of the keys they carved. Instead, if the key doesn’t work, they like to make another key that doesn’t work.
It doesn’t bother them to keep trying, They store everything related to the renovation of the house, including kitchen and bathroom accessories, lighting, painting, garden supplies and tools.
Both stores offer same-day delivery, installation services, DIY workshops and in-store credit cards. They even have similar return lines and accept most things with or without payment receipts in cash or store credit.
