Key Cutting and Duplication
If you need on the spot duplicate keys, then look no further than Fradi. With just a copy of the needed key, we can get you a second right away.
Even if your car dealer, apartment complex, or landlord claims your key is not duplicatable, we can. Do not allow anyone to make a new replacement key more expensive than it has to be. Your 24/7 Fradi professional locksmiths will do it for a reasonable price right in front of you. It is always a good idea to have a duplicate on hand and in a drawer in case you lose, break, or jam the original.
You can never completely predict how long your keys will last. And they are so essential, a backup can be a lifesaver. The key profile can get worn down gradually over time. After a while, their teeth may no longer match up to the pins in the keyhole. Besides that, rust or other debris can build up inside and block the key.
Rekeying Existing Locks
On the other hand, if all keys are lost, you may wind up getting a new set of keys for your home with an all new key profile. Or you might have recently experienced a break-in or break-in attempt. This is when you want to rekey your locks. This is a process by which we replace the keyholes in your locks without having to replace the whole mechanism. It is a far cheaper, faster, and more convenient experience than a full replacement.
However, we also do installations. We can install Installation of locks on your doors and any other locks in your home. Our locksmiths can add a deadbolt or other high-security lock to your back or front doors.
Lately, smart technology has become integrated in residential locking systems. More and more people are using cameras at their doorbells. And it has become convenient for the elderly and many more to be able to lock, unlock, and answer their door from their chair. These new technologies can be difficult to set up and integrate into your old systems. We at Fradi work with these all day and can help with the installation process.
Once again, there is nothing more important than providing the utmost protection for your loved ones. For extra protection, we recommend installing high-security locks. These additional measures prevent any attempts at lockpicking or lock bumping.
The worst and most stressful feeling is realizing you are locked outside of your own home. You could walk out the door and immediately turn around, knowing you forgot your keys. Or you may find out as you rummage through your pockets or purse at the end of the day. It could be that your key breaks inside the lock, never getting to unlock the door. In any of these cases, you can go directly to calling your local locksmithing experts.
We are 24 hour, 7 days a week mobile locksmiths. You can reach us at any time. And, from there, we make our way to you. Whether it is getting you your keys from inside before work or getting you inside after a long day at work, we will get it done as soon as possible.
While, of course, it will always depend on how far and the current area traffic, we strive to get to you within 30 minutes. Even though the San Diego area is bound to give anyone the runaround, the average time for our lockpickers is to get to you in 15 minutes.

And even more lucky is that Fradi Professional Locksmiths are all both licensed and insured.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is rekeying a lock?
Re-keying is the process of changing your locks’ cylinders rather than the entire hardware. We’ll remove the old cylinders and replace them with new versions to update all your locks to one key and change your existing keys. This process is best for those who recently moved into a new, have lost a house key, or would like to update all locks to a single key rather than multiple different keys.
Where can I get a key cut?
There are many brick-and-mortar stores you can get a new key. However, Fradi Professional Locksmith offers mobile key cutting services for homeowners and residents. If you have lost your key or want a duplicate, contact our team today. We’ll travel to you to duplicate or create a new key from your locks. Save time and add convenience to your day with our mobile services.
Do you need my house key to replace it?
If you have lost your house key, we can help you replace it. We don’t need the original key to cut you a new key. Our team only needs access to your house locks to create a new key for your home.
