Keys Cut from a Photo 

For us to cut a key from your photo we need at least one good quality photo to work from. If you follow the pointers below this should help us to be able to decode your key more easily.

  • Place the key on a flat surface with good light on the key. A window sill during daytime is an excellent place to take the photo or placed on a sheet of white A4 paper.
  • Hold the camera directly over the top of the key and try not to create any shadows.
  • Make sure the whole key is in the picture please.
  • Take several photos and send the best one to us and ideally if we can see both sides of the key you need then we would prefer that.
  • When emailing the photo please ensure you send us a large photo

Lock Doctor Services Ltd is a national supplier of replacement locks and keys for lockers, filing cabinets and office furniture. For the last 15 years we have specialised in replacing lost and broken keys and other security equipment for residential, commercial, and industrial applications, delivered anywhere in the United Kingdom, usually next day.

We are specialists in replacement keys manufactured in the UK but can also cut keys from your photo if they have been imported and your local key-cutter doesnt have the right key blanks for duplication. Replacement keys are also available next day for desks, pedestals, tambour units, and cupboards.

If you are not sure that this is the correct type of key for you, just email a picture of your lock face or the original key to and we will help.

We cut these keys using the latest electronic and semi-automatic machines. Keys are cut according to the manufacturers’ own code with precision and effectively the same quality as an original key. The key blanks we use are best quality full-steel and manufactured specially for us under the® brand.

We process orders for hundreds of keys within a few hours. Small orders are usually dispatched immediately within the hour.


You need to provide us with the replacement key number which is usually stamped on the lock-face (front of the lock) and on the original keys. Type the key number (or the number from the lock) into the search bar on our home page and when you click GO it will give you the most common types of keys to choose from with examples that you can see for each type. If you are not sure then take a good photo of your key, a key of the same type, or a clear high-quality image of the lock-face. Email the photo to and we will do our best to identify the right type of key to order. We can usually dispatch the same day.

  • Registering online only takes a few minutes. Once this is completed you can order quickly and efficiently on the web. Our bespoke key search function allows you to find the keys you need in an instant. Just type the digits into the search box, press GO and your keys can be added to your shopping cart ready for checkout.
  • The checkout process is simple and secure, allowing you to have a separate delivery address from your invoice address facilitating third party deliveries.
  • Our payment process works under SagePay integration, meaning that you can rest assured that your details are safe and secure when ordering online.
  • If you already have an account with us then you can email spreadsheets with lists of keys, photos of the keys you need or Official Purchase orders to
  • When you place an order, you will always receive email confirmation. If you do not, then please contact us to confirm that the order was successful and that we are processing it for you.
  • All our orders are sent out by Royal Mail First Class unless otherwise requested, most of our orders should arrive next working day. This is not a guaranteed service, please contact us to see if our courier service is appropriate for your requirements.


When you have a long list of replacement keys that you need then you don’t have to type each key number when ordering online. Just email your list of various replacement keys to and confirm the total quantity of keys required.


  • Email your list of keys
  • Confirm the quantity in the box provided

    Great Service

    Didn’t know the make of any of the furniture I wanted keys for. So I sent pictures of the locks and items of furniture and keys were delivered the next day!
