I have a key marked "Do Not Duplicate." Can I get a copy of it anyway?

Keys marked "Do Not Duplicate," or " Do Not Copy," or "Unlawful to Copy" (other than some very specific US government keys) indeed may be duplicated legally. Prior to the advent of true high security keying systems such as Medeco, stamping ordinary keys with "Do Not Duplicate" was a precarious way to control key duplication. Locksmiths are well able to duplicate keys when the head of the key covered up or has been brocken off. That is where the "Do Not Duplicate" is located. Therefore many locksmiths recognize that having the "Do Not Duplicate" is at best a false sense of security. There could easily be many duplicates of that key made without your knowledge or permission.

What is a transponder key?

A key that has a device imbedded inside which transmits and receives data. These devices contain one of over a trillion unique codes. When the key is inserted into the ignition, the transponder sends a signal to a disc-shaped antenna mounted behind the steering wheel. If the signal is recognized by the vehicles immobilizer, then the engine will start. If the signal is not recognized or has been weakened by damage to the transponder then the immobilizer will shut down vital operating systems to the engine and it will not run. This technology greatly reduces the risk of auto theft and provides a peace of mind for the vehicles owner.

How is my Transponder key programmed?

Every car is programmed differently. Most Transponder keys come preprogrammed with a fixed code. This means that it cannot be changed to match the vehicle. The solution to this is to program the vehicle to recognize the new code. This is done with a variety of equipment depending on the year make and model of the vehicle.

I want all of my locks on my house to take the same key, can this be done?

In most cases you can keep your existing locks, you can have a locksmith code them alike. This is refered to "Keyed Alike". An easy test to see if your existing locks are able to be keyed alike, is to see if the one common key will enter the cylinders (keyway) on the other locks.
