What is a laser key and how does it work?
laser key is cut using a specialized
laser key cutting machine. It is a
far more accurate cut than is used
on conventional key cutting
machines. The advantage of a laser
key is that it is far thicker than
the average car key and does not
wear out so quickly. The car locks
both the ignition and the doors at
the same time. Laser
keys are much tougher and are far
more difficult to pick or be damaged
by a car thief. It is also
impossible for a criminal to make a
laser key through the use of a hand
key cutting machine.
What makes a laser key so special is its
groove, cut out inside the key. This is
referred to as a laser cut or a
“sidewinder”. The key has a blade which is
rectangular in shape. The groove cut up the
middle of the blade’s face is wavy and made
at the same depth throughout its length.
Also, the key has exactly the same groove
cut out on the blade’s back, which makes it
symmetrical. This means it will work which
ever way it is placed in the lock.
