How much does it cost to cut a key?
Surprisingly, key cutting is not expensive at all. The main consideration is the type of key. But you will still only pay between $5 – $30 to get a key cut. The machine is already there and it takes less than two minutes to actually complete the task itself. Most key types will cost less than $10 to replicate. Specialised keys might cost between $15 – $30. This is if you have a key at hand, go to the locksmith, and want it replicated in their facility. If you have broken a key in a door lock and need to call a locksmith to fix the problem, it’s going to cost a whole lot more.

How long does key cutting take?
The process of key cutting actually takes less than two minutes. This is when you have the key at hand and take it to the locksmith for replication. However, certain keys can take up to 20 minutes. These are mainly safe keys that require special equipment. Of course, if the key is being cut by hand, it’s going to take far longer, though hardly anybody uses this method any more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Key Cutting
Where can I get keys cut in Brisbane?
There are many places you can go to get your keys cut in Brisbane. There are online dealers and high street dealers.The issue is that these dealers use low quality blanks. The end result is low quality keys that break off in the lock. Which means you have to call a qualified locksmith to then change the lock, costing you a small fortune. In other words, it’s better to pay a little extra to get a good key, from Barrier Locksmiths. We have experience in high-quality key cutting and it’s still very affordable. We offer key cutting in:
- Brisbane CBD
- Everton Park
- Fortitude Valley
- Gordon Park
- North Brisbane

Can I get a key cut without a key?
Yes. But you need to have a key code. This is not as common as it once was, because locksmiths are not legally required to verify ownership once a person has this code. Which means if a criminal found out your code, he could request to get a key cut from it. Yet some locks still have codes.
Cars will typically have a code in the manual. Filing cabinets and stationary cabinets will also have codes. But most other locks will not have a code. There is another danger with cutting using a code. If a previous locksmith has rekeyed a lock and failed to replace the old code, then that old code you are using is obsolete.
How can I get a key cut?
The process is simple. Take your key to the nearest locksmith. Ask them to cut the key and wait for 5 minutes. They will then reappear with an exact replacement using their machinery. Many hardware stores and other businesses offer these key cutting services, but the quality of the replacement is poor and ultimately costs you more. You can’t really buy the equipment yourself, because it costs thousands of dollars.
Can you get window keys cut?
Yes. Technically, you can get any kind of key cut that you want, whether it is for a window, filing cabinet, security door, safe, or car. The difference lies mainly in the cost and time. The more specialised, the harder to replicate. But window keys are no exception and are quite easy to cut. The idea is you are making an exact replica of an existing key.
