Yeah unfortunately one of my roommates was activated for National Guard and the other won’t be returning for a while, so I guess I’ll have to go to the locksmith. Luckily there’s a local locksmith right across the street from my current apartment.
But could you elaborate on the part where you said that it wasn’t my key? All of our keys look identical, that being they’re all Kwikset “Do Not Duplicate” keys, but mine is the only one that seems to be “coded” in reverse compared to theirs. We got in with one of the keys last week to go through a checklist of the place and I guess I chose the faulty key. We transferred our internet to this location too and I’m in need to set up the modem so I can take my finals this week haha.
I am not a locksmith, can someone explain to me why you don’t see cuts like this more often? Seems like it would be a whole lot more secure, adding that OP said it was hard to pick. Every house key I’ve had rarely had cuts with depths that differed more than 1-2 – In other words I’ve always felt my homes would be incredibly easy to bump-key or pick
