Re: codes on line

I did a quick search online and found lockcodes.com as a mobile alternative to buying Codesource, Genericode or other code software that is installed on your PC. Is that what you're talking about? If so, I've been a bit curious about it myself.

Re: codes on line

On lockcodes.com they have the section called 'Codes on line' subscription based, right next to it is a demo/trial of it. Hope that helps some, as for the accuracy or completeness of it, no idea.

Re: codes on line

I've never used any code software, but if I needed it I would try codes express from the locksmith ledger.

Re: codes on line

Codes express with The Locksmith Ledger is not that good. I don't know about Codes Online if you are talking about the Blackhawk website. It seems quite a few locksmiths use it and seem pretty happy with it.

I use Instacode and couldn't live without it now. I don't know what your pricing range is but I believe they offer it in a web only format now for an annual subscription. Mike Hyde's website sells the program for the U.S.

I use the SFIC pinning charts online. I know other locksmiths use the codes and like it. I've never used the codes myself.

I've used it. It's looks very simple, almost looks like the whole program was a freeware or something. But it's pretty accurate. The locksmith who introduced me to it said it's much more reliable than Code Source.

Re: codes on line

Codesource is good ....been a while since I used it, a useful feature allowed you input partial cuts and it would come up with the possibility’s from the data base. Very handy if you do automotive work.
Another feature that I found handy: The ability to print a series of codes, nice if you are doing desk/ file cabs on a regular basis ,saves dragging the laptop to the work area. Don't quote me on this, I think Codesource ( license) is allowed on up to 5 machines.

The thing I would say about Codesource is it is only updated 1 time a year. This can be a problem
if you are doing automotive. As codes/ keys can change mid year. There is also the initial start up expense apx. $700 IIRC.

Codes on line is updated regularly and has the “ fill” option available. Start-up cost is apx. $75
It can be accessed by anyone with a password. I don't think you can print a series of codes.

Our shop has Codesource (Because it's compatable with our Code Max; I also have a personal subscription to Codes Express. I have been able to supply the shop an alternate (or even unpublished) code, when the Codesource hasn't yeilded a workable code.

The only problem I have with these two code programs is that they don't allow a look at the whole series at once, as I can do with the ole' reliable printed books!

Re: codes on line

Old post… sorry for bringing it back up, but does anyone use http://www.lockcodes.com ?? it's 59$ per year. the demo seems to have the few codes i've searched for. I'm thinking about biting the bullet and subscribing. can't find any reviews online. I checked out locksmith ledger's service (which is a bit cheaper) but i don't really like their format. let me know your thoughts if you use it. THANKS!

here is a link to the DEMO: http://www.lockcodes.com/demo/index.htm

Re: codes on line

My best friend uses it. He says it had never missed any thing the other programs didn't miss either. I know you can print HPC1200 cards from the website also, as well as automotive progressioning.
