A new way to make Keys

 A year or so ago I ruined a key. I wasn't in a hurry for replacement due to the Covid-19,  I searched via phone and internet for someone within 75 miles with the blank with no luck. Today I when into Menards and found a self service kiosks that can make all type of key. Stuck my key in the slot and followed directions. My specialty keys will sent to me in 3-5 days. The Kiosks has  "Key Me " at the top.

I knew it was to good to be true. I received this message this morning.  So now I back looking anywhere now for a TM700 Blank.

From KeyME Support:

During the quality assurance review of your KeyMe order, it was discovered that your key cannot be copied at this time. Your key type looks very similar to one that we do support, and unfortunately the kiosk didn't make that distinction when scanning your key.
 
I sincerely apologize for the confusion - we have, of course, fully refunded your transaction

We have had to have extra Trimark keys made in the couple of years. Tried Ace, Lowes, and a couple of other places and no go. Went to a local lock shop and locksmith, he took a quick look at what I brought him, "be back in a minute or two", he had them cut and ready.

This way is pretty interesting, but there are options that may be easier and faster. It's important to have efficiency and time management. That's why I turn to the locksmith in grapevine for help because I have already used his services and had positive results. One day the lock got jammed, and I couldn't open the door. After some time and hundreds of attempts, I decided to get help from the locksmith. I still do not regret that I went to them because it was a success.

Depending on where you're at most independent "Ace Hardware Stores" still cut keys the old fashion way with a key cutting machine. Had some cut in an Ace a year ago in Iowa.

Yep, I've had many keys duplicated at an Ace hardware store. Once they even duplicated a controlled key for me that had "do not duplicate" stamped on it; and the blanks were supposed to be controlled access.

I think they do not make chipped keys too. I had lost my key once. It was nowhere to be found. And since it was the only one I had, considering I had lost the previous one too, I had to find another and code it. I have ordered one from Amazon. I found them quickly since I live nearby. But they told me they don't provide such operations. So I looked elsewhere. My friend recommended trying some company close to me, and I quote, "Go to that Locksmith near to you. I made one there". And so I went. They did a great job in a short time. I was delighted.
