Ask the Key Wizard | Key Duplication for Restricted Keyway


I have a high security key and need another one cut. But on the key head it says eg: “Assa 123 – do not duplicate”.

Can I go to my local locksmith to have them duplicate it for me?



This appears to be a restricted key. You will have to find out which locksmith in your area provided these keys. The restriction only allows the locksmith who issued the key to provide you with more. If you do not have any luck calling your local locksmith – then you can call the manufacturer or your local distributor for further help.
