If you’ve lost the keys to your bike lock and need replacement bike lock keys or are simply looking to get some additional copies cut, then this article will direct you to the most convenient key-cutting service for every popular bike lock brand.
Of course, whilst the chances are slim, your local locksmith may be able to cut bike lock keys for you.
However, if the manufacturers of your bike lock offer a key replacement service, using their service will be your best bet.
So, if you’ve been wondering how to get new keys for your bike lock, where to get bike lock keys cut, or if you can get replacement bike lock keys, keep reading, and I’ll show you the most reliable services for every popular bike lock brand.
Bike Lock Key Codes
Bike lock manufacturers that provide a key replacement scheme for their customers use unique key codes to identify the different cuts that a key requires to be able to operate its lock.
Typically manufacturers will stamp key identification codes on the side of the key’s blade. However, key codes are sometimes supplied on a plastic or metal tag with the keys at the time of purchase.
Just below, alongside where to get replacement bike lock keys cut, I also show you the typical key code location for each brand with images, so take a look if you’re unsure of what you’re looking for.
Where To Find Key Codes For Each Bike Lock Brand
Kryptonite Key Codes
Kryptonite key codes are typically found on the reverse of the plastic head of the keys.
Key codes aren’t printed on Kryptonite’s LED keys, or despite what some sources suggest, on the red label that’s supplied on the key chain. This is simply a warning label.
Kryptonite key codes are typically six digits long and will often start with a letter followed by five numbers.
For example, the key code for my Kryptonite 1055 Mini is: F30658.
Once you’ve located your Kryptonite key code, click here, and I’ll show you how to get replacements printed.

Otherwise, with some of the cheaper locks ABUS offer, the key code can be printed on the blade of the key, as shown in the ABUS section here.
ABUS key codes are typically five to six characters long and can contain letters and numbers.
For example, the key code for my ABUS 59 Extreme D lock is: 234663.

But as you’ll see later in the article, Trelock key codes can also be printed on the plastic key head.
Trelock key codes are typically five or six characters long and often start with a letter.
Via Velo Key Codes
Via Velo key codes are supplied on a plastic key code card attached to your key ring at the time of purchase.

What To Do If You Can't Find Your Bike Lock Keys/Key Code
All bike key replacement services require a key code for replacement or additional keys to be cut.
Unfortunately, this means if you’ve been unable to locate your key code, your chances of getting replacement keys cut are very slim.
If you have an existing key for the lock but no key code, you may be able to get a replacement cut by taking your key and lock to a specialist locksmith.
Alternatively, you could reach out to the manufacturer of your lock and see if they could decode your key.
But as I mentioned earlier, I live in central London, and after visiting 10 highly specialised locksmiths, I had no luck getting a key cut for a lock that I had the key code for, so don’t get your hopes up.
If your bike lock is secured to your bike, you’ll probably want to read this article, which will teach you how to remove a bike lock without keys.
Otherwise, it’s most likely time to get yourself a new lock. Depending on what sort of lock you require, you might want to check out one of the following reviews for several worthwhile suggestions:
Bike Lock Key Replacement Services
ABUS Key Replacement Service
If you’re based outside of these locations, then unfortunately, ABUS don’t currently offer a replacement service delivered to your country.
But that’s not game over! If you live outside the above locations, you could use a post-forwarding service to forward the key to you from the most convenient location above.
Otherwise, you can find your best point of contact or closest approved ABUS retailer here using their world map tool.
To Order new keys using the ABUS Key Service, you’ll need your unique keycode, which will either be printed on your ABUS keys or on the blue key card they came with, as shown in the section here.
Roger Seal, sales and marketing manager of ABUS UK, told me that they do have a mechanical code reader that they can use to read certain key types. so if you don’t have the key code, all hope is not lost.
That said, if you can’t find your key code, getting new keys cut will likely be a long process.
It might be worth trying a few local key-cutting shops to see if they can help. Otherwise, you’ll want to read this section to learn what to do next.
ABUS Key Replacement Price
The price you pay for your replacement ABUS keys depends upon which key you need.
More complex locking mechanisms like the ABUS Plus and X-Plus keys are more expensive than others but below are the price you can expect to pay for your country:
- USA & Canada – All keys $12.99
- UK & Ireland – £9.95 to £19.95

Kryptonite Key Replacement Service

The locks which the Key Safe Program covers are as follows:

If your lock is eligible for a free replacement, fill out this form, select “Key Safe Program”, and Kryptonite should get back to you.
There have been mixed feelings about their free replacement service, with several users stating they’ve never been contacted by Kryptonite or received their keys.
If your lock doesn’t fall under those covered by the Key Safe Program, or if you don’t have time to wait for replacements, you should use the paid key service to order new Kryptonite Keys.
Scroll to the bottom of this page, where you’ll input your key code and postal details before ordering your keys.
Kryptonite key codes are usually printed on the blade of the key towards the top, as shown under the Kryptonite tab here.
Can’t find your Kryptonite key code? Unfortunately, it’ll be a struggle to get new keys cut without. In this case, you should read this section which advises you on your next best steps.

- Additional keys – $5 each
These prices are inclusive of worldwide shipping, which is very reasonable.
Kryptonite Lockout Service
If you’ve lost all of the keys to your Kryptonite lock and didn’t register or take note of your key code, you’re in a bit of luck if you live in the US or Canada.
If your lock is still secured to your bike, then you’ll want to learn how to remove it here.
Otherwise, you’ll be able to send your lock off to Kryptonite, who will replace it for you with a functioning lock (of the same or similar model) and keys.
You do have to pay to use this service, and you’ll need to post your bike lock to them, but it’s normally cheaper than buying a new lock.
Master Lock Key Replacement Service
Unfortunately, Master Lock don’t offer an in-house key-cutting service to their customers.
However, it says on the Master Lock website that customers can purchase key blanks from their local authorised distributors, which they can then get cut by a specialised locksmith.
I’ve contacted Master Lock to find out the best distributors for the below locations and will update this article once I hear back from them:
- USA & Canada
- United Kingdom
- Mainland Europe
I live in central London and subsequently have an abundance of locksmiths nearby.
The only Master Lock bike lock I’ve used is the 8278EURDPRO, which uses a disc detainer cylinder.
I called ten highly reputable locksmiths from across London, and none could cut the keys for me, even if I provided the blank keys and a key code.
For now, I’d say you’re better off buying a new lock than trying to get replacement keys for a Master Lock bike lock.
It’s a shame, but after three months of emailing their customer service, I’m no closer to getting the details of a distributor for blank keys, let alone a capable cutting specialist.
As and when I hear back from Master Lock, I’ll update this section with any additional info.
If you lose your Master Lock keys, read this section which advises you on your next best move.
