Can someone tell me how I can get another key for my Slingshot. Will a hardware store be able to cut one using
my original key --- Would feel better with a spare key.
Thant you

Saw a blank Ss key on eBay
and claims it can be cut at a regular hardware store with that key cutting equipment. Sooo that's what I will do.

I matched a key @ home depot knew it was too thick bought it anyway had trouble with the associate but he finally cut it and I filled it thinner works great and I carry in my wallet $2.00.

I bought a blank at a dealer and took it to a locksmith. The only reason I used a locksmith and not a box store is because they were convenient. Ended up with a key that totally matched the original.

I bought three blanks via Amazon. Took the blanks to Home Depot and they cut them for me (no charge because I am a regular customer there). With the three new keys I now have five keys that work. When I bought my SlingShot new in 2016 the dealer gave me two keys.

I did buy keyrings long red embroidered cloth. One side says USMC and the other SEMPER FI. They look amazingly good in my amazingly good Slingshot. Still fun after 3+ years.

Needed new key, bought blank at dealer, all big box stores and drug marts in our area went to a cartridge system for key cutting, one does not exist for this key, went to locksmith, dudes been in busines for over 40 years, it cost a few bucks more but all is good, if the store you go to has the old system that uses your key as a template you're good but none around here anymore

Just had two keys made at local hardware store. Using the blanks l bought on line for Yamaha. He cut them but was concerned about the stops. Just 2 bucks apiece. I am not home yet but I will try them in the SShot later today

Hi guys. Both of the keys worked and it helped the cutter
to cut them from front to back. Also no chunky piece of plastic to deal with either.
