Managed to lock yourself out of your home? It happens to the best of us – but, the good news is, LockShop Direct is here to help.
We specialise in cylinder key cutting and have helped many customers, over the years, to regain access to their homes. We’ve even provided replacement cylinder keys for times when they have got stuck or snapped inside the lock.
Cylinder key cutting at LockShop Direct
Cylinder keys are distinctive. They are the ones with a bow and a long blade in which Vee cuts are made along the upper edge to operate the pins and drivers in a pin tumbler mechanism. They are often used to open the locks on your front door, back door, patio door or even cupboard doors.
Here we look at 3 simple steps to cylinder key cutting:
- Email a photograph of your key to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll take a look at it and identify a suitable key cylinder replacement. We will inform you which pricing band it belongs to (e.g. A, B or C) as well.
- Click on the required cylinder key, select the correct band from the list and add it to your basket. You can then proceed to the checkout.
Please note that if you order a key cylinder replacement from the wrong band it won’t be processed but you may still be charged for delivery.
- Once your order has been received, we will send a confirmation email which will include your order number, starting with ‘Web-xxx’. Make sure you keep your order number safe as you will need this when you send the key you want cutting to:

How much does it cost to get a cylinder key cut?
Often, the price of key cutting depends on the type of key, the locksmith and how long it takes to cut the key.
The great thing about cylinder keys is that they are the second cheapest to get copied, after window keys.
Typically, they take no more than 5 minutes to cut and we strive to provide replacement keys at a highly competitive rate. Prices start from just £4.98 and range up to £8.76 – depending on the required price band.
Delivery of key cylinders
It takes 1-3 days for replacement cylinder keys to arrive.
At LockShop Direct, we make sure that all cylinder keys are posted via recorded delivery to provide you with complete peace of mind. We’ll send the replacement to a different address to where the lock is located – usually the address of a friend, family member or workplace – preventing the risk of it ending up in the wrong hands.
