Jaguar Tibbe Keys
Jaguar keys are pretty different looking. A lot of customers call them ‘post keys’ for some reason, but the real name is called ‘tibbe keys’. They’re cut on 4 different sides and require a specialty machine to make them! We specialize in cutting Jaguar tibbe keys.
Starting in about 1990 Jaguar moved away from a standard key that any locksmith can cut and started using these tibbe keys. The first generation of these keys had 8 cuts and then moved to a 6 cut design.
Jaguar Chip Keys
Starting in 1998 Jaguar began using transponder chip technology in their keys. Chip keys have to be enrolled into your car’s computer database before it will start. We specialize in programming these keys, these are NOT dealer only!
