Custom Fitting Transponder Blanks

JMA offers a unique opportunity to not only save money but have the ability to custom fit transponder-equipped key blanks. Because JMA sells more than 50 chipless key blank part numbers and separate transponder chips, locksmith can carry an increased variety of key blanks.

For example, the Ford 8-cut transponder key is available with a fixed value transponder or an encrypted value transponder. Having the chipless Ford 8-cut key blank and the two different transponders, either transponder can be installed to satisfy your customer’s vehicle requirement.

In addition, locksmiths can re-use transponder chips removed from keys by installing them into compatible key blanks. Locksmiths can reduce the cost of miscut keys by harvesting transponders. Transponder can also be removed from worn, broken or no longer used keys by removing the chips and installing them into JMA chipless key blanks.

Using JMA chipless key blanks and harvested and new transponders can significantly reduce your key blank inventory stocking costs.
