Boat Ignition Key Replacement
Ignition keys are very different and more unique than other boat keys. For this reason, we leave supplying these up to marine locksmiths and engine manufacturers. Your best bet is to always keep a spare or two, which can be made by a standard key maker. That way if you lose one they can continue to duplicate your spare! However, if you can't get a replacement you may have to replace your starter, which will come with a new key.
Reasons Why You Should Invest in Replacement Boat Door Keys
If you have not yet invested in replacement boat door keys for your vessel, it may be time to do so. Just as is the case with keys you use for your home, car and workplace, the keys to the doors and other parts of your boat are important, and also can easily go missing. Even if you think you look after your boat door keys well, there are still many good reasons to invest in replacements. Below we have highlighted some of the most important.
Saves Money: When you invest in one or more replacement boat door keys for your vessel you can actually save money. Rather than needing to cut a completely new key, a locksmith will be able to use your spare boat door key to cut a new one.
Easier for Multiple Users: If you share the use of your boat with one or more other people, you run the risk of losing your keys if you only have one set between you all. However, if you invest in a set or two of replacement boat door keys, everyone who uses your boat can have their own copy. As well as saving you time and effort, as you don’t need to meet up with them to pass the keys on, it means you always have at least one or two spare sets if one set gets broken or goes missing.
Peace of Mind: Even if you do not share the ownership and use of your boat with other people, it still makes sense to have at least one or two replacement boat door keys in a safe place. You can get real peace of mind knowing that if you can’t find the boat door key you normally use, you still have spares available.
Convenient: Although you can usually hire emergency locksmiths very easily, you will still need to wait around for them to come out if your key breaks or is lost. Whereas if you have a spare set, you can simply use them and do not need to wait around for the locksmith.
Time-Saving: Similarly, to the above points, if you lose your boat door key, and don’t have any spare keys to hand, your plans will need to be put on hold. Although it may not be vitally important to get out on the water in your boat, it can still be frustrating. This can be avoided, therefore, by purchasing replacement boat door keys.
Snapped Key Substitute: As boat door keys get wet and are exposed to the natural elements a lot and generally put through a lot of wear and tear, they often snap and bend. When this happens, especially if you are out on the water, you will be pleased to have access to replacement keys.
