Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do you cut keys?
A. We often get asked in the shop if we cut keys. The answer is yes. We copy the normal Yale type front door latch key, as well as all sorts of cylinder, mortice keys like Chubb, cabinet keys and even the very old Cast iron key, such as that shown here with an old rim lock from Whitstable Castle. (insert Whitstable lock photo)(insert cast iron key photo)
Q. Can we order it over the phone?
A. These days we can take orders over the phone or internet, simply by using your credit or debit card details, and send goods out in the post or by courier. Just remember at which branch you ordered it from, to follow up any order. We deal with people, so orders are always recorded via the name of the person placing the order.
Q. Have you got one of these/those Thingummybob Doobery Wotsits?
A. We often get asked for obscure or perhaps difficult to describe hardware items, but pride ourselves on our willingness to help wherever possible. So feel free to ask if we have one of those wotchemacallits!
