Can you copy my fob?
We can copy 90% of all fobs on the market.
Above is a list of all the types of fobs we know we can clone. There are plenty of brands that aren’t on that list yet, because we’ve never had enquiries for them.
If your fob isn’t on the list, we’ll just have to try our luck. We know that our machines can duplicate 90% of the fobs on the market, including Paxton.
Once we have your fob with us, we’ll know straight away if it can be copied. If it can be copied, the copy will work. If it can’t be copied, we’ll return your fob free of charge.
Do I have to send you my fob?
No, you’re also welcome to pop by our North London workshop to get fobs copied.
It’s easily accessible via Tube, rail, bus or car, from inside or outside London.
Where do you ship to?
We can ship fobs anywhere in the UK and Republic of Ireland. We can also ship to other countries, though special postage and currency rates may apply. Enquire for details.
What is the turnaround time for a fob?
It takes all of two minutes to copy a fob. (With extremely rare exceptions.)
Provided we receive the fob before 3pm on a working day, we will copy it and send it straight back on the same day by 1st class recorded post (signed for).
You can choose a guaranteed Royal Mail Special Delivery service for peace of mind, too.
Can you copy gate control fobs/remotes?
We can supply replacement gate remotes for you.
However, not all of them are made in the same way as normal RFID fobs. Instead, it’s best to email us a photo of the remote so that we can tell you what the best solution for you is.
The email address to get in touch with is email@example.com.
What about Paxton fobs?
We at Metrolocks can copy all kinds of Paxton fob and cards. The process is the same as with all other fobs: we copy it in under two minutes.
Pretty neat, right?!
Can I bring you a blank fob to write onto?
Most blank fobs are not writeable. It is possible to buy blank fobs for many brands online, but our machines can only very rarely write onto them.
We have special fobs designed to be written onto.
