How It Works
Here at Hero's Armory, we sell key blanks in the form of both Schlage SC1 and Kwikset KW10. These two keyways match about 95% of locks used throughout the United States. There's no need to send us a picture of your key cut, or send us your key to be duplicated. You'll receive the key blank of your choice, and then get it cut at your local locksmith or hardware store to match your current key! Keep reading to find out how it works!
1 - Choose Your Preferred Designs
To get started, browse all of our available designs here. We currently carry 20 different designs, all of which are inspired by designs from your favorite stories! When choosing your designs, you'll need to find out whether you have a KW10 or a Schlage SC1. We've created a Keyway Reference Guide to help you figure out which key is for you. If you're still confused after checking out our guide, feel free to Contact Us!
2 - Checkout & Shipping
Once you've added your preferred designs to your cart, you can checkout with credit card, debit card or via PayPal. We typically ship our products within 1 - 2 business days of receiving your payment. You will be notified via the email you provided when your order status changes. Find out more about our shipping policy here.
3 - Get Your Key Cut
Your key will typically arrive within 3 - 5 business days after it has shipped. Once you receive your blank, you'll need to take it to your local locksmith to get it cut to match your current key.
Note: ALWAYS try to use a professional local locksmith to cut your keys. While some hardware stores (Home Depot, Lowes, etc) are more than capable, it really comes down to the employee. A professional locksmith will always cut your keys better!
In addition, ALWAYS use an original key to duplicate your new key!
If you go to a local hardware store over a locksmith: It should also be noted that some hardware stores will say they won't cut outside keys, meaning that they cannot cut a key they don't carry because they cannot replace it if it doesn't work. If this is the case, we recommend telling them that we, Hero's Armory, will replace any incorrectly cut keys, and that this shouldn't be a problem. If they still insist, take it elsewhere.
