How to know when it's time for a new spare key

If you have given your spare key to the people who service your home – like the cable company or repairmen – or if you have any doubts about someone’s trustworthiness, it might be time for a new spare key. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, especially when it comes to the security of your home.

If you’ve ever given your spare key to someone and never gotten it back, it’s time for a new one. Here are some suggestions for when to change your locks and get a new spare key.

What to do with spare keys you don't want anymore

Even if your spare key has never been misplaced, it’s a good idea to get a new one every now and then. The locks on spare keys wear down over time, which means they become less reliable and more prone to getting stuck in locks. If you have spare keys that you no longer use or want, these are some suggestions for what to do with them:

– Always be sure the spare key is cut as close as possible to the original – leaving excess metal can cause key breakage later .  If it doesn’t work well now, it will only get worse over time.

– If you don’t want to keep the spare key, you can always destroy it so that it can’t be used by anyone else.

– You can also store spare keys at a secure location that only you have access to, just in case you need another one in the future.

Whatever you do, just be sure to keep your home safe and secure by changing your locks and getting a new spare key when necessary. Contact Florida Premier Locksmith in Cooper City for more information (954) 833-7670.

If you’ve just moved into a new home, you’ll need to get a spare key for the new locks. You can usually get a spare key from the home’s previous owner, or you can call a locksmith to make one for you.

And always remember, if you’re not the only one with a key to your home, it’s a good idea to change your locks regularly. This helps ensure that your home is always safe and secure. Secondly, if you ever have any reason to doubt the trustworthiness of someone who has a key to your home, it’s best to change your locks immediately. This will help protect you and your family from potential danger. Finally, if you ever need to give a spare key to someone – for example, the people who service your home or repairmen – be sure to get new locks installed afterwards. This will help keep everyone safe and secure.
