[DML] Re: Cut keys and decoding at DCS

I wasn't responding to James' post, I was responding to Dave's post (Message #85188):

"... Worst-case, a COMPETENT locksmith can disassemble the steering column lock and reverse-engineer the key. We've done a few of these."

A competent locksmith can reverse engineer a key without disassembling the ignition cylinder -- *THAT* has been my point all along. Has absolutely nothing to do with James at DCS.

> Bill, you are missing the point. Many people may not be bringing their car to DCS but if they only bring their keys they can avail themselves of James's offer and get some code cut keys. If you have worn keys or keys that have been duplicated and not cut by code this is a chance to get some properly cut keys. We are not talking about someone who is locked out or some other kind of emergency where you have to call a local Locksmith. At the very least they can get their key "read" and put the code away for future reference. Some people try to prepare for problems ahead of time. I didn't say fitting a key by impression is going to damage a lock, it is just if you are making a key by impression in a worn lock you are going to wind up with a cr-ppy key. BTW, any good Locksmith CAN disassemble the lock and not damage it. Most will advise against that and recommend replacement. They know it is cheaper to replace an old, worn lock than to spend the customer's money trying to repair it.
