Yes! What better way to show you love your car then with functional pocket jewelry? While our first keys were cast grade 5 titanium, all current and future keys are CNC machined from solid sheets of grade 2 titanium. We have been working hard to perfect the craft of making titanium keys to deliver the most elegant, highest quality keys we possibly can… we are the original manufacturer of the 300zx style key with cut-through Nismo text!
We have personally tested our keys to fit the R32 Skyline, Z32 300zx, as well as the S13 Silvia. The actual key design should be compatible with the ignition cylinder/door locks of other vehicles not listed. Compare the length and grooves in your key to the ones in the pictures. If in doubt, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The following are vehicles that are listed by Nissan to use the same style blank:
1980-1984 Datsun 810 1984-1988 200SX 1989-1991 240sx 1984-1989 300ZX 1989-2000 300ZX 1982-1986 720
1983-1990 Pulsar NX 1982-1986 Sentra 1990-1991 Stanza 1989-1994 R32 Skyline 1995-1998 R33 Skyline 1988-1994 S13 Silvia 1994-1998 S14 Silvia
- Each key needs to be cut on a MANUAL key cutting machine. Please seek out an experienced locksmith in your area.
- No kiosks and no automatic machines at hardware stores.
- Instruct the locksmith to cut the key slowly. Cutting this key using the same speed as a typical brass key can either damage their blade or damage your new titanium key
- After your key is cut you will need to deburr the edges before using it. The wire wheel on a typical manual key cutting machine is not enough.
- Use either a small jewelers file or roll up a piece of sandpaper (200-320 grit) to smooth out any and all sharp edges left over from the cutting process.
- If you plan on testing the key in your car immediately, bring your file/sandpaper with you!
- If your key is being matched/cut from an extremely old and worn key, we highly recommend finding a locksmith in your area that can code cut this new key.
- This often involves them generating a code from your existing key, cutting a generic blank using the code in their machine, and then matching your new titanium key on the manual key cutting machine.
- We tested both methods and measured the differences with a digital caliper… the code cut key is a clear winner.
- *** We typically use the “Key Hero” kiosk in Home Depot to get a code cut blank. This has the added bonus of storing your key code in the cloud for cut at any Home Depot!
