If the key code is unknown, bitting cuts can be directly entered into the Tri-Code H.S. Begin by sourcing the correct model and key blank information on the LED screen. Each series shows the amount of ‘tracks' and wafer tumblers used by each series. An example might be (4T-8W), indicating a 4 track key with 8 spaces per side. Once the correct amount of bitting cuts is input, the Tri-Code will originate a key in the same manner as cutting a key by code.
Duplicating or originating keys for sidewinder locks can be a profitable addition to your business. As example, the charge for a duplicate 9-3 Saab key at a local Chicago car dealer is $250.
Most of the sidewinder keys in use today also incorporate some kind of transponder security, so you must also be prepared with the proper transponder programming equipment.
