Solid Keys USA is America's newest key producer and a genuine innovator, leveraging novel technologies to create products and solutions that help locksmiths streamline inventory, simplify processes, and reduce costs. By creating the world's first Universal Car Remote and Universal Car Keys, Solid Keys USA is offering locksmiths valuable products and solutions that enable them to do more work, and boost profit margins.
Solid Keys USA is a high-tech replacement automotive key manufacturing division of Louisville, Kentucky-based iKeyless LLC. Founded in 2002, iKeyless specializes in the design, manufacture, wholesale distribution, and retail sale of replacement automotive keys and keyless entry remotes.
iKeyless began as one of the internet’s first retailers of replacement keyless entry remotes. In 2006, replacement keys were added, making iKeyless the internet’s first website selling both keys and remotes. Today, iKeyless remains the world's leading online seller of replacement keys and keyless entry remotes.
In 2008, iKeyless purchased a second-hand van and experimented servicing fleets and car dealerships. The division, now known as Car Keys Express, operates nationwide with employees in 38 states.
In 2009, iKeyless started its humble product development effort. Two years later, production began on the first line of our own replacement remotes. In 2014, iKeyless/Solid Keys released the world’s first Universal Car Remote. The Universal Car Remote has been received enthusiastically by retailers and locksmiths across America.
The recent proliferation of low-quality, inexpensive, imported “remote head” keys with faulty software and hardware has challenged locksmiths’ operations and reputations. With the introduction of Solid Keys’ replacement keys and Universal Car Keys, key replacement professionals no longer need to expose themselves to risks to earn reasonable profits.
For a young company, Solid Keys USA has an extensive “list of firsts”. This list will grow significantly in the coming months and years as more innovative projects come to market—products that allow locksmiths and retailers to operate more efficient and more profitable operations.
