Gatemate dimple keys

Recommended Posts

We gave up on this one - yes we failed ! Had a few distributors/dealers ask us and sent the locks, genuine blanks from the manufacturer - but not much fun/joy in testing.

 

They need to create a Silca card and release the codes or they will just lose customers - it's not a big enough market for us to spend any more time on.

I cut them on the Triax no trouble but not to code.

No Silca card but use the Hercules 6 pin one.

I used to decode then cut from PC software then do "Exact Copy" for heights as they look massively out. But then had a lock in so just decoded and cut key to see if it would work, It worked fine so I don't bother with Exact Copy anymore unless its miles away.

The tolerance in these is massive but just shows how shit the locks are.   

 

As said above blanks from Hughes Wholesale.

From the ashes! Gatemate are now talking to us about getting this sorted - it may take a few weeks/months (if we involve Silca lol) but it seems a solution may be on the horizon.

It's not a 'top 10' problem for us right now as the volume is pretty low - but it's something we will address unless someone else solves it beforehand!

One day people who make & distribute locks will also consider how to make the keys.... when that happens I'll sack myself and go fishing.....

Anyone know the cutter/tracer combo for these?

 

Is there a list anywhere for the cutter/tracers for each key on a Silca Matrix, and if angled cuts are needed?

I don't have instacode and have to ask everytime a new key becomes available

There is a specialist guide in the download area. This will show all systems that require an additional cutter/tracer/clamp. If the system uses the standard equipment, it will not be listed.

 

As newer systems get released, updated versions are available from the Silca website www.silca.biz
