Controlled wirelessly using an app on your Android or iOS device, designed specifically to offer robust features with a super simple and user-friendly design. See the Software Features below
Uses a single patented 4-way jaw for all high security & double-sided edge-cut keys. No extra adapters or jaws to buy and swap like most other machines require.
It may sound like a small thing, but tool storage is so important with modern key machines. Use the integrated storage compartment to keep all of your cutters, tracers and other accessories safe and in one place.
Included in the Black Widow mobile app is a fantastic Favorites menu that gives skilled locksmiths the fastest way to find keys quickly, as well as a Cut History screen that chronologically shows all of the work you've done in the past, including key types and cuts. You will love using your mobile device for all of your key cutting.

Easy and Effective Search
Find your key type in 4 different ways: (1) keyword search using Ilco EZ or Silca key names, (2) search by Black Widow/Triton card #, (3) search by HPC Blitz card #, (4) search by Instacode card #, (5) vehicle search by year/make/model, or (6) use the Favorites menu for the FASTEST way of getting to your most commonly used keys.
The Favorites menu is our favorite way of using this machine. Add your most commonly used key types to your Favorites and you're on the cutting screen in TWO CLICKS! ADDED BONUS: Use the same mobile device across multiple machines and you have access to your same, personalized Favorites!
Cut History
All of your work is saved to your Cut History for easy reference later, including the key type and the cuts you used, all shown in chronological order. Yes, you can delete individual records if you need to. ADDED BONUS: Use the same mobile device across multiple machines and you have access to all of your Cut History, no matter which machine you cut it on!
Custom Key Profiles
Did someone release a new key type to the market that isn't in the database yet? Your machine is FUTURE-PROOFED with the ability to build your own custom key types into the system (not available for dimple type keys). ADDED BONUS: Use the same mobile device across multiple machines and you have access to all of your custom key types, no matter which machine you cut it on!
Decode by Photo
In times when a worn key you're trying to duplicate cannot be effectively auto-decoded by the machine, you can take a picture of the key with your mobile device and visually decode it yourself. Note that this is a feature that wouldn't be possible without the integration of your mobile device.
Trace Duplication
Trying to duplicate a key you can't find or don't know the name of? This feature allows you to copy keys by just telling the machine what TYPE of key it is (single-sided edge-cut, double-sided edge-cut, single external laser-cut, double external laser-cut, internal laser-cut, or tubular) and it will "feel" its way around the key and figure out the rest for you.
Progressioning (Fill)
You know some, but not all, of the cuts on your customer's key? Enter the info you know (key type and some cuts) and the software gives you the possibilities for the unknown cuts to help make a fully working key. (Internet connection required)
Comprehensive Key Code Database
Quickly converts your code to cuts—automotive, commercial, and residential all included. No other software needed! (Internet connection required)
Support for Decimals (Fractional Cuts)
When extra accuracy is needed, the Black Widow app gives you the ability to use decimals for  inputting depths.
Adjustable Cutting Depth
All machines of this type seem to have problems with webbing thicknesses sometimes, the thin sliver of metal left uncut between both sides of the key. Especially with Honda high security keys, thick webbing can stop the key from entering the lock and maybe even damage the wafers. No longer do you need to slip a piece of paper underneath the key to adjust your cutting depth. Just increase your cutting depth on the cutting screen and get onto the next job.
Choose Between Plunge or Contour Cutting
Contour cutting (sometimes called laser cutting) an edge-cut key can leave your key functional but looking funny. It will work just fine, and in fact it is much easier and faster to copy on a duplicator, but old ladies look at the key and think it won't work. The Black Widow gives you the option of plunge cutting, leaving your key looking like it was cut by a traditional cutting wheel.
Easy & FREE Wireless Updates
Updates are included for the life of the machine, and because the Black Widow uses a mobile app to operate, updates are extremely easy to install.

Can the Black Widow AUTO be upgraded to the Black Widow COMPLETE later? The Black Widow AUTO can be converted to a Black Widow COMPLETE at any time for a $500 charge, which includes the S2 jaw for single-sided keys. Upgrading to the COMPLETE gives your machine the ability to cut single-sided automotive keys, tubular keys, as well as residential and commercial keys. Click here for more info
Does the Black Widow require an Internet connection? If you need to convert a key code to cuts or do some progressioning, then yes. But all other features can be performed just fine with a connection to the Internet.
Does the Black Widow use tools to change parts? Jaws can be swapped without any tools—just loosen the thumb screw and slide the jaws in and out. Like all other key machines of this type, the included allen wrench is needed to loosen collets to remove and insert cutters and tracers. Good thing there's a great tool storage compartment so you don't even need to worry about losing it!
Can cutting keys using a wireless connection cause problems? The Black Widow has been equipped with Bluetooth version 5, an extremely fast and reliable method of communication for devices like these that need to pass data back and forth. Things happen though, like your phone dying, or you walking out of range to use the bathroom while the key is still cutting. Rest assured that the Black Widow has been programmed to simply STOP if it ever loses its data connection with your mobile device during cutting, leaving your key undamaged and ready to start the cutting process over again.
Is it easy to see the key while the Black Widow is cutting? Definitely yes! The Black Widow has a clear, untinted cutting shield and bright LED lights that continuously follow the cutting field as the machine does its work.
Does the Black Widow have an integrated battery? No, it does not. We have discovered that machines like the Dolphin by XHorse with built-in batteries will stop working completely when the battery dies, even if you have the machine plugged into a power outlet. The battery for the Black Widow is an inexpensive, external accessory for this reason.
How do I get support? Technical support is provided by extremely experienced locksmiths. Please call 800-692-1898 and select option 3 for technical support.
How long is the warranty? The Black Widow comes with a 1-year warranty for parts and labor. Repairs are performed in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Can the Black Widow engrave? Sorry, no, it can't. You would need the Triton key machine if that feature is important to you. Or use our engraving services.
Can the Black Widow cut the new VW/Audi HU162T keys? Yes, it does a great job cutting all 4 sides of the 8-cut, 9-cut, and 10-cut HU162T keys!
Can the Black Widow cut the new Ford HU198 keys? Yes, it does a great job cutting those keys!
Can the Black Widow cut Mul-T-Lock 06 keys? Yes, it does a great job cutting those keys! Unfortunately, it cannot decode that key, but which other machine can do that, really?
