One of the most critical parts of locksmithing are key codes. Let’s start off with what is a key code? A key code is a series of letters and/or numbers used by a locksmith to create a key. These codes identify where cuts should be made on the key in order for them to work with a particular lock. Don’t worry a key code is not the actual cuts to your key that would cause major security issues. A key code must be converted by a professional into the cuts in order for a key to be made.
Knowing where to find or get a key code is very important. Once you have your code a locksmith technician will be able to convert it into key cuts in order to make your key. Key codes can be found on a variety of places on your vehicle. A couple of the most common places to find them is on a passenger door lock or glovebox lock. If you are not experienced in removing these locks it should be left to your car locksmith. Trying to remove them yourself can cause damage to your vehicle. You can avoid this unnecessary damage by leaving it to the professionals to do. Sometimes vehicle manufacturers will stamp the key codes right in the car owners manual or on a tag in the center console. In other cases the key code may be converted from the VIN number of the vehicle. If you contact the dealer where the car was purchased they may have code on file or be able to convert it from the VIN for you. If all else fails your car locksmith is able to order your key code in order to duplicate a key.
