But don’t worry; Matrix locksmiths in Toronto are experts at resolving this problem. They would either break or repair  the car or house lock. They will replicate and replace your keys, thereby resolving your problem.

Keys on Table

 As locksmiths are adept at copying keys, they have been able to learn how to forge them as well. They are capable of breaking into a building by making new locksets and forging copies of door keys. They are experts at opening locks of homes, cars, etc. – but every lock is different and not every key can be duplicated.

Thousands of keys exist on the market, with a wide range of shapes and sizes to choose from. One type cannot be duplicated: DND Master Keys. How many locksmiths would try to duplicate the keys but they are rather invincible. And their doors are also safe because no one can copy them.
DND Keys are best for high-security areas, and they are used everywhere. Many People Prefer DND Keys because they are guaranteed to work.

These are some of the keys that cannot be duplicated and their reasons:

1. Transponder Key:

Transponder Key

Transponder Keys are used in cars and they cannot be copied because a computer chip inside sends out an encrypted code. These chips are programmed to prevent duplication, and the codes cannot be broken with any instrument that exists.

With a unique cut, these keys cannot be duplicated and are commonly referred to as sidewinder keys. These keys cannot be copied using a conventional key-cutting machine, they rely on a laser cutter in an emergency and are available in many different shapes.

3. VAT Key:

These keys are the first-ever electric keys. They use resistors and have a built-in electric modification. If the value of current fed into the memory with a given engine key does not match that of the resistor in place, then the car will not start. VAT Key can be duplicated to a certain degree, but cannot be replicated if the original is broken.

4. Tubular Keys:

This kind of combination lock is circular and has a circular hole in the middle with metal around it. The keys we carry can’t be duplicated because the notch of the key must fit into a lock perfectly. Deadbolts are also added for extra security which makes it hard to clone and create a duplicate key.

5.Four-Sided Keys:

This key has four sides which makes it a unique one because it can fit only specific locks. Suck keys and locks are used in residences.

6.Abloy Keys:

This is a high-security lock that requires you to use an access card, and the key can’t be duplicated. Abloy keys are unavailable to be duplicated because they have a cutting mechanism that can’t be imitated.
