How to Identify Keys That Cannot Be Copied

It is well-known that some keys cannot be replicated, but how can you tell if a key falls into this category? Transponder keys are one type of key that cannot be copied due to the computer chip inside them that sends an encrypted code. This code is programmed to prevent duplication and cannot be deciphered with any existing instrument. Do Not Duplicate (DND) keys are another type of key that cannot be copied. These keys are often used in locks for added security, as they are virtually impossible to clone.

VAT codes can be duplicated to some extent, but if the original one is broken, it cannot be replicated. When it comes to ensuring effective security, consumers should focus on opting for a patented key control system that helps them know who has the key to their home. Before buying keyed locks, locksmiths always recommend that you check the company's key duplication policy. Wrench manufacturers, such as Ilco and Klassen, sell raw keys with the words “Do not duplicate” stamped on the bow.

Abloy keys also cannot be duplicated because they have a cutting mechanism that cannot be imitated. If you're having trouble copying your password, it may be because the specific profile of your password is no longer widely used. The locksmiths at Matrix Locksmiths have the knowledge and experience needed for all types of key duplication needs. Its objective is to reduce the risk of a security breach by avoiding massive duplication that poses a risk to the owner of the original key. Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do that makes your key truly unique or difficult for others to duplicate. If you've already purchased keys and aren't sure if they aren't duplicate keys, call the locksmith who sold you the new accessories.

This way, you can ensure that your security is not compromised.
