Getting an extra key made usually means a trip to a Lowe’s or Home Depot. Occasionally, there’s just not enough time to make a special trip to get a key made. Luckily, with this quick DIY video, you can learn how to make your own spare key right at home.

YouTube user Dave Hax is based out of the United Kingdom and has over 2 million subscribers. His fans love to watch his videos about how to craft useful objects out of simple household items. He uses his own ideas along with older tried and true concepts to make clear and concise videos that make DIY look easy.
