Lexus 80k Series without Adaptor

When it comes to electronic high security code machines, like the Triton Plus, a lot of times, there are extra little parts and pieces that you have to get at the time of purchase. It can be annoying and not very fun. Well, the good news is you can skip that part with the Triton Plus. It is because cutting an 80k Lexus Code Series emergency key on the Triton Plus is possible without the extra parts and pieces. Let’s get to it!


There' are few different ways to the code series of the key that you need to cut. One way is to tap ‘Automobile.’ Type the manufacturer (eg. Lexus), look for the 80k, and it will lead you to the screen like the image below.

From this screen, go to ‘Key Code’ and drop the input before hitting ‘Search.’ The bitting will appear.

Set up the jaw needed (S1-B jaw). What's more important is when we click the ‘Cut’ button, you can choose the cutter.

Why is that important?

A lot of the other machines will require you to buy a separate cutter to cut the 80k. You also have to buy a shim to put underneath the key. With the Triton Plus, you're not going to have to do either one of those. You have options to choose1.5mm, 2.0mm, or 2.5. The 80K Lexus key will take 2.0mm. You can also adjust other options like speed.
