Key Duplication and Generation

Broadway Locksmith offers one of the largest key blank selections in the greater Seattle area. We even make “skeleton” keys to fit the 100-year-old locks in many neighborhoods throughout our service area — something of a lost art. Our key machines are calibrated to within .0001 inches. Our copies are so accurate that we can make a fifth-generation copy of a key that will still work flawlessly in the same lock as the first-generation original. Contrast that with keys from a hardware store, where getting a working copy can be a real crapshoot.

At Broadway, we also have the ability to generate an original code key from your worn key by comparing its cuts to the factory code depths. In many cases, creating a code key can alleviate lock problems such as difficulty in turning your key. This can also prevent unnecessary wear on the wafers in your car’s locks. If you have the code for your key, we can cut a key to match it. This can save you a lot of money!

Broadway Locksmith has remained a family-owned business since the 50s. We have numerous code books for steamer trunks and padlocks that may be some of the last in existence! If you have an old steamer trunk, not only can we unlock it for you, but we can also cut you a code key generated from our large code library of books from the early 20th century — a resource many other locksmiths won’t have.

Get your keys stamped here for free. If you want us to sequentially stamp your keys so everybody’s key is identifiable, we will do it for no extra cost.
