LOCKSMITH™ YOUTUBE MEMBERSHIP CHANNEL TO GET ACCESS TO MEMBER ONLY PERKS: #mrlocksmith #locksmith #locksmithtraining Ask Mr. Locksmith: Today’s question is a good one “Is it illegal to make a key or duplicate a key that says do not copy?  In most cases no! Here is the problem they stamp “do not not copy” or “do not duplicate” on common keys.

You know Kwikset key, one of the most common keys out there and I have seen “do not copy” stamped on it.  Sometimes there are regulations as a locksmith shop sometimes if it says “do not copy” or “do not duplicate” and it’s just a common key we just have a form you fill out which shows your id saying that you are allowed to have that key cut. Now if we have some high security keys and they usually have patents and what you do the locksmith has a contract with the manufacturer not to cut keys or he’ll lose his contract.

Emergency Locksmith Langley

The locksmith can be fined so that key because there is a patent. You have key control so you don’t have to “do not copy” on that because no locksmith will cut a high security key that he has the potential to lose his license or his ability to sell that key. Restricted high security keys are covered by a patent and usually covered by a contract between the manufacturer and the locksmith company. If you have a high security Medico, Multi-Lock, Abloy, etc. require a special machine to cut High Security keys.

Your average corner hardware store or your shoe store cannot usually cannot cut a high security key because he doesn’t have the contract with the supplier to buy the key blanks. If he did and you are not his customer and you have don’t have signing authority they are not going to cut it. But to ask is it illegal no.  However, where I live there is legislation that it says “do not copy” we are supposed to get identification saying they can have it duplicated.

Mr. Locksmith Tips

Restricted keys requires either you are a key card holder that you can get that key or you are registered to get keys from that system. It is only from the locksmith that sold you that system and this protects the high schools, Universities, businesses, etc. that they can get a key that os patented and has key control that you can’t get copied. Is it is it illegal no! Is against the rules of your contract with your manufacturer? Yes it is and that is going to be your biggest penalty for a real locksmith is not going to cut that key at all because it doesn’t want to put in jeopardy his ability to buy more of those keys. I hope I answered your question.
