Key By Code Service
Part Number: SMC.KEY.01
All locks are assigned a code at the factory. The code indicates the cut sequence for the key that operates the lock. If you know the code for your lock, we can generate a new key that matches the code. The cuts on the new key will be the same as the original factory key created to operate with your code. Codes can be found etched into the tailpiece of the door lock or on a small piece of paper stuck on the ignition lock. Pricing will vary for keys with cuts on one side or both sides of the key. Note that early keys are “single-sided” with cuts only on one side of the key, and later keys are “double-sided” with cuts on both sides. In order to make a key by code for a double sided key, it will be necessary to purchase two key blanks.
Key Duplication Service
Part Number: SMC.KEY.04
We can provide you with a new duplicate key of your existing key. You will need to provide us a copy of your original cut key, and we will copy the cuts from your key onto a new key blank. We will duplicate your key using a properly calibrated German key duplication machine. We recommend sending your key blank in a padded envelope or small box.

First Key Service
Part Number: SMC.KEY.02
Many of the original locks available as replacement parts do not have keys with them. By requesting a first key, we can create a key that operates the lock. The key is the same as the one that operated the lock when it was assembled at the factory. We can provide first keys for all locks, including ignitions, door locks, glove compartment locks and hood locks. This service is available for locks from the earliest 356 to cars through the early 1990s. Pricing will vary depending on the lock and model. Pricing for First Key Service will vary by lock. Please inquire.
