One of the last things to prepare in a new home before handing the finished product over to the new homeowner is the door locks and keys. Of course, you don’t want to hand the new homeowner a flimsy key that bends easily or gets stuck in the locks. You want to give them quality keys that match the high quality of the house.

You need a key that can handle any kind of lock without issue.
  • Sturdy: You will also want door keys that are made of sturdy materials. The last thing you want is having a new key break off inside the lock because it was too flimsy or brittle to unlock the door properly. You also want a material that won’t bend easily against stiffer locks.
