Re: [DML] Cut keys and decoding at DCS

That is called fitting keys by "impression". It works, but cutting by code is the more exact way to do it if you have the codes and the equipment to do it. Cutting by code is the preferred method, it doesn't matter if the lock is worn, you are not fitting a key to a worn lock. For fleet service typically all of the vehicles are keyed alike, that way you never have to go hunting for keys. All owners of Deloreans should avail themselves of James's service. If they do not have TWO sets of code cut keys they should have them made. At the very least you should verify you HAVE the code for your car. James can "read" the code off of your keys and then you should record it. Using a worn key that is a bad copy will just wear your locks faster. If you find you have to jiggle or wiggle your key to make your lock work you need to fix it before you get locked out. A little powdered graphite to lubricate the locks is always a good idea too.
