Push Keys

Push Keys are a new product produced by Framon and designed by Tom Thill. Sharing similarities with other wafer decoding tools, push keys are based on the height that different wafers sit inside the lock cylinder. In some cases like Ford, each wafer “hangs” in the cylinder at a different height, making it quick and easy to use a push key to decode the lock and originate a key. With other manufacturers a push key can be used to determine information inside the lock that will assist you in progressing a key. Toyota for instance will allow you to determine if a cut is either a 1/2 or 3/4. Using this information you can make half cuts and then determine what the actual cuts are with a combination of impressioning and progressing.
