17 Aug High-Security and Sidewinder Cut Keys
High-security keys are standard on nearly all cars made in the past decade or more. They can be standard-cut keys with a transponder chip in the handle or laser-cut “sidewinder keys” that represent the next layer of vehicle security.
Laser-cut sidewinder keys are thicker, have smooth outside edges, and have the unlocking code cut into a serpentine groove winding down the center of the key. This makes them much harder to copy and reproduce. The equipment needed to cut these keys is significantly more expensive than standard key-cutting machines, so servicing them is less widely available and mostly found at higher-end locksmiths and car dealerships. Since they have transponder chips imbedded in the key handle, the locksmith needs the ability to program them, as well.
High-End Auto Protection
Modern keys offer much greater convenience and protection for your vehicle, but it comes with a price. Because of all their features, high-security sidewinder keys are considerably more expensive than standard-cut keys, often costing $250 or more. And replacing lost or stolen keys can be an even more expensive hassle if you’re locked out or you don’t have the documentation you need.
