If I go to a hardware store with my house key and asked for a copy and asked for a second matching key cut to code 999 would that be the correct depth key code?

yes, but they probably cant cut it. Most hardware stores will not have a code cutting machine, they merely make exact copys of a key you supply them with. You will have to try a locksmith, or buy from bumpkey.us

Naw, after I have one to go by I might give that a shot but for now I would just be frustrating myself more than likely. :lol:

Strictly speaking, No!

It depends on the lock manufacturer. Not all keys are cut to 9 depths - As an example the deepest cut could be as low as 5 and as high as 10.

I agree with you, that not all the keys cut to 9 depth as it depends on locks manufacturer.
