Backup keys and Sub Keys can be serialized to Locks using the TOSIBOX® Key software.


Backup key is essentially a copy of a Master Key and can access all locks serialised by the Master Key and vice versa. However, Subkey access rights given to a master Key are not copied to Back-up Key as only the original Master key can give the rightsto these locks.


Subkey can access only locks it has been given access rights to by the Master Key. New Keys cannot be made using a Sub Key


Serializing a Key locally

  1. Insert a Key (that has already been serialized to a Lock) to the USB port of the computer and wait until the TOSIBOX® Key software starts.
  2. Insert another Key to another USB port of the computer.
  3. The Key serialization wizard starts automatically. You can also start it manually from the Devices > Manage Keys menu.
    • When doing a local serialization, the second Key inserted to the computer’s USB port is automatically selected. This selection cannot be changed. Click on the Next button.
    • On the first page of the Key serialization wizard you can select Backup or Sub Key.
    • Select Sub Key.
    • Choose the Locks you want to serialize the Sub Key to. Click on the Next button.
    • Next a list is shown which includes the Locks you are about to serialize the Sub Key to. After you have confirmed that you want to serialize the Sub Key to these Locks, click on the Save button.
    • If the Sub Key has a password, enter it next.
  4. Backup key option will not let you select the Locks but it will be given rights to all Locks serialised to the master Key.
  5. The serialization is now complete. Click on the Finish button to exit the wizard.


Serializing a Sub Key remotely 
This function requires that you have locally serialized the Sub Keys in question first.
Backup keys can not be serialised remotely.

  1. Insert a Key (that has already been serialized to a Lock) to the USB port of the computer and wait until the TOSIBOX® Key software starts.
  2. Start the Key serializing wizard from the Serializing menu.
  3. Choose the Sub Keys you want to serialize new Locks to. Click on the Next button.
  4. Choose the Locks you want to serialize the selected Sub Keys to. Click on the Next button.
  5. Next a list is shown which includes the Locks you are about to serialize the Sub Keys to. After you have confirmed that you want to serialize the Sub Keys to these Locks, click on the Save button.
  6. The serialization is now complete. Click on the Finish button to exit the wizard.
