Frequently Asked Questions

'FAQs' are frequently asked questions commonly asked in context of using our locksmithing tools, and specifically to Intralock. Here is a list of the most commonly asked questions and answers to guide you with your Intralock device.

Installation and Setup

How do I install and wire my ITL 950/950C unit for mobile use?

Follow this simple procedure: For personal safety and minimized risk of damage to your machine, you must first ensure the machine is fastened securely. Use the two threaded ¼ 20 bolt holes provided in the base for mounting. For your convenience, a template is supplied with the box your machine comes in and should be used as a guide for drilling into your countertop.

Change from AC to DC power source When everything is secured, locate the 2 12 volt cable connectors at the back of the casing. They will be red (Positive) and black (Negative).

What gauge wire should I use? Use number 8 gauge wires or thicker and install an inline 20 amp fuse at the power source.

What length should the wire be? Use the shortest length possible to a maximum of 20ft. Otherwise, voltage drops may be experienced and may result in improper functioning of your machine.

Should I use stranded or solid core cable?A stranded cable is easier to handle.

Is it better to use connectors or no connectors? Always use connectors.

What is the peak amperage on 12 volt? 10 amp pk.

Tip: An auxiliary battery with an isolation module is recommended to avoid running down the truck battery.

ITL key machines accommodate a wide range of cutters to allow users to do more. Below shows the available cutters, their purpose and which ones come with which machine as standard.

How often and when do I have to update key codes?

This depends on what types of keys you cut regularly. The likelihood of an update is higher if you need to cut mainly car keys since car manufacturers are always adding new locks for new models. If it's been a while since your last update, please email us or phone 1-888-264-6627 to purchase an update. Be sure to have the serial number of your machine handy, too.
