Is it leagal to copy my key?

Well our Ninja’s are not lawyers so we can’t speak to legalities in every state!  However in most states RFID keys are considered the same as a psychical key in the eyes of the law.  There is no restriction on copying a key you legally own.  So duplicating an RFID key is no different then getting your house key copied at the local hardware store.  However if you are still concerned please check the local laws in your state.

How does it work?

Its really simple!  Just pick the type of key you want to order, send us your original, and we ship both the original and duplicates back.  We have an entire section that goes into more detail on each step.

What kind of keys can you clone?

We can duplicate most type of keys. There are some encrypted keys that can not be duplicated, but luckily these are mostly used in high security commercial and government buildings.  Check to see if your key is on our compatible list and even if its not contact support to see if we can duplicate it.  There are hundreds of keys on the market so its impossible to list them all.

What if my key doesn't work?

It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes new clones just don’t work like they should. If you happen to get a clone that doesn’t work, get in touch with us at [email protected] and we’ll do you right. Promise. We offer a 30 day return period and 1 year warranty on all orders.

Are there keys you won't clone?

Yes, some keys we will refuse to duplicate.  We don’t duplicate the following keys types:

  •            Corporate Identification Cards
  •            Government/Military Identification Cards
  •            State Issued Identification Cards
  •            Student Identification Cards
  •            Any card that appears to be some type of stored value card (bus cards, gift cards, etc)

We reserve the right to refuse any order we feel is being used for unethical or illegal purposes.

But how will I know if he/she's the one?

You’ll know. Your heart will tell you. Also, listen to your mother. She knows.

Do you ship outside the US?

We are excited to announce we now ship to Canada! We are working on expanding our services to even more counties soon.

How long does it take to clone my key?

Keys are normally sent back out the next business day.  We offer multiple return shipping options to meet your needs.

How will I know when you receive my key?

Your order status will be updated when we receive your keys at our facility, and again when we ship them back.  You can check your order status at any time in your account profile page at the link below.

Can you clone my key with the numbers printed on the back?

Unfortunately not.  These numbers are often only a portion of the data on your card along with an order number from the manufacturer that has no relation to the data on your key.

Will anyone be about to tell I'm using a clone?

Your duplicate key will be an identical clone of your original key.  The access control system will not register any difference between your original and the duplicate.  There are obvious physical differences in the duplicates and your original, this is why we stock neutral colors an never print a logo on our keys.

If my original key is deactivated will my clone still work?

No, your duplicates are identical copies of your original.  If your original key is deactivated or replaced your cloned keys would need to be sent back in to be reprogrammed.  We offer lifetime reprogramming for $4.99 when you purchase your duplicates, this allows for unlimited reprogramming.

Can I return my order?

Yes, we offer a 30 day return policy on all orders.  After 30 days returns will only be accepted for defective items under our 1 year warranty.
