Car Key Duplication
Your four-wheel friend is always there for you when you need it. But what happens when you lose your car keys? Or worse, when they’re stolen?
This is not a new problem. In fact, it’s one of the oldest problems in the world of car ownership. But it is a problem that can be easily solved with the help of a professional locksmith company like Bob’s Lock, Safe & Key. We provide car key replacement services that are fast, efficient, and affordable.
Whatever the type of your car key, we can replace it. Here are some car key types that we can replace:
These keys have a small chip in them that sends a signal to the car’s ignition system. If the signal is not received, the vehicle will not start. Most vehicles made after 1997 use this system.
Remote Flip Key
This type of key is commonly seen on Hyundais, Kias, Volkswagons, and other car manufacturers. The key and fob are integrated into the same piece with an additional button that lets the ignition key flip out. We do provide, cut and program these.
Standalone Key Fob
These keyfobs are separate from your ignition key, and are usually attached via a key ring. They are more common in pickup trucks as well as most older vehicles.
Laser Cut Car Key
This type of key has a long, thin blade with the cuts “inverted”. We are able to make duplicates using advanced technology that can decode and duplicate the laser cuts onto a new blade.
Request a Service
These types of keyfobs are seen on most newer vehicles with a “Push-to-Start” ignition. We are able to provide and program keyfobs for these vehicles, and we include programming as well as the emergency insert key.
Tibbe Car Key
This type of key is used on Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles. It has a unique shape that allows it to fit into a Tibbe lock. We can make you a new Tibbe car key if you’ve lost yours.
What to Do After Losing Your Car Keys
There are some reasons why car owners lose their car keys. Maybe you left them at the office or a friend’s house. Or perhaps you were a victim of a theft. Regardless of how it happened, losing your car keys can be a frustrating and stressful experience.
But don’t worry because we’re here to help. Call us at Bob’s Lock, Safety & Security. We will dispatch one of our expert locksmiths to your location as soon as possible.
Our technicians will decode the door lock and progression the code to get the cuts for your key, and for most vehicles, will then plug in our programmers to the vehicle’s OBD port to sync the new key or fob to the car’s immobilizer system so you can get back on the road in no time.
We can also erase keys from the vehicle’s memory so if you’re worried about the thief coming back with your old key, it will no longer start the vehicle.
We can also go one step further if you want, and rekey the vehicle’s door and ignition locks so that the cuts are different, and your old key will not even be able to turn the cylinders. Call for a quote on this process!
How We Duplicate Car Keys
Our experts use high tech machinery that directly copies the cuts from your key onto a blank one. From that point we will then plug in our programmers to the vehicle’s OBD port to clone the chip information from your existing key onto the new one, so that both keys are now synced to your vehicle.

If you’re not sure if your key is a transponder key, look for a “Security” light on the vehicle’s dash. Often it looks like a blinking red dot, or a car with a key, or a car with a padlock, or just a key or a padlock, and sometimes even just says “security”. If your vehicle has this on the dash, it has a transponder system and will need a programmed key to be able to start.
