► What auto manufacturers do you service?
Our experts are professionally trained to provide car key duplication service for most vehicles year 1998 and newer.
► I lost my original key. Can you still make a duplicate without it?
Duplication is basically copying, so if the original is not present a copy can not be made. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t have your car key back. We will dispatch our technician and determine proper cuts, as well as cut and program a new key for you. If your vehicle uses a push to start ignition we manage those as well.
► My duplicate key doesn’t work. Is it defective?
Please be assured that customer service and support is one of our top priorities. If you previously had a duplicate car key made from us and it stops working we will replace it for you within 90 days. Water and physical damage is not covered.
► What’s the difference between key cutting and key duplication?
Key duplication is making a copy from the original working physical key. It usually doesn’t involve key fob or transponder chip programming. Key cutting is made based on the specific code numbers.
► Can a local hardware store make a duplicate of my keys?
Some hardware stores offer car key duplication service. However, most do not program transponder or key fobs that are used in newer vehicles. Secure Locks will do both on-site without you having to visit a store or dealership. Our specialists specialize in double sided, and laser cut keys. Once the key is cut we will also program it for you. Secure Locks professionals can make a copy of almost any type of key. Call us for more details.
► Can you duplicate any key?
There are only a couple of cases in which the key cannot be copied. Our locksmiths will refuse to provide this service if the original key has some sort of “Do Not Duplicate” warning. It’s generally illegal to make copies of the keys marked as “US property” (without authorization) and the mailbox keys (you should request the replacement key from the manufacturer for a fee). However, no such rules apply to car keys duplication service. As long as you have a working original it’s possible to make a copy of it.
► Where to find your price list?
It’s difficult to determine the cost without fully understanding the situation and the type of assistance required. You may only want to create a duplicate, but you might need additional programming or a key replacement which is a particular type of service.
