Why keys break
Broken keys are a common problem as keys will eventually break and be worn down at any point on the key cut. If you have keys with deep cuts, these can become weak points where they break from wear and tear. Another reason why we have broken keys is the lightweight materials they are made from. Aluminium keys are common culprits of breaking at the weak points even if they are not regularly used. If you see tiny cracks in your keys or they are bent in any way, we recommend that you have a new key cut. This will prevent your keys from breaking in your locks.
