Take the lock to a locksmith, or take the VIN to the dealer and have him/her make you a key. Neither method is cheap, of course.

You will have to go to the dealership that made the car. If it is an old car they should still beable to get an original key for you. I suggest you make a copy of extra keys off the original.

Most dealers can make you a copy with the VIN number. They may also want to see your papers for the car..

Or for at least on older car without a computer chip, you could get:

*a key file (a tapered file) which you can find at just about any hardware store, a blank *a few blank keys

*a black sharpie

Use the sharpie to fully color in the key blade to black on both sides, insert the key to the lock, then firmly, but not hard, turn the key both ways a couple of times, take it out and file away the spots that don't have black on them anymore. Repeat all of this several times and you should eventually come out with a key that would work.

If you file it too much just get another blank key and start again, it'll take several tries to get the hang of it, but it shouldn't cost as much as having a dealer do it, especially since you can get all the supplies for litterally pennies on the dollar each.

You cannot protect it from being deleted as such. Any file on a computer can be deleted. The thing to do is to have a backup copy, so if it does get deleted, you have a spare copy.You cannot protect it from being deleted as such. Any file on a computer can be deleted.

A "copy" is any reproduction of an original. A "certified copy" is a paper document that is a copy of an original in some form and that has been certified by the person making the copy to be a true and unaltered copy of that original.

Yes original copy is an oxymoron

The original. The copy is for your filing purposes and as a backup.

User Avatar

A certified true copy is an original document, and a document that is verified against the original copy is usually a recreation of the original document, or a second document that reflects the content of the original.

Saving a copy of a webpage allows you to view it without an Internet connection. Of course, this means that your copy will become out of date if the original, online webpage has been updated. Think of your copy as a 'snapshot' of the webpage, since the copy won't change if the original page changes.

If you do a Copy, that is what will happen. If you do a Cut, it will be removed from its original location and stored on the Clipboard.If you do a Copy, that is what will happen.

When you copy and paste, you leave the original copy where it is and make a second copy where you desire.When you cut and paste, you take the original copy and move it elsewhere.Copy and paste copies what you have selected, so you can paste it elsewhere, but the original remains. Cut and paste does the same thing, but it deletes the original.

I do not know the exact price of an original copy of Mein Kampf copy right date 1925, but I do know that and original copy of Mein Kampf copy right date 1939 is worth $299.95.

You could make a copy of the .exe and put it in another folder which would allow you to play about with the file and still keep a copy of the original.

Saves you time by not having to run to a copy store. Also allows you to make and give copies of clients original documents after contracts are signed.

If you have purchased the original CD it is legal to make copies for personal use like say put a copy in your car so you can keep the original from getting damaged. It is illegal to give or sell copies of original CD's without explicit permission on the owner.

User Avatar

Cut will take the original away, and Paste onto the destination. Copy take a copy of the original, and paste onto the destination. The difference is the original object (the text, the file, the folder, etc) remain in tack (no alternation) for Copy, the original be moved (the Cut)

Yes. The co-signer should insist on having an original copy of the contract, and any other documents they signed, since they are a party to the contract and the provisions are legally binding on the co-signer.Yes.

No one can get a copy of the original Bible, as its manuscripts have been lost.

If it is a "copy" of the original, it is whatever the date on the ORIGINAL form would indicate.

Copy copy something to a new location leaving the original in place. Cut will remove the original and move it to the new location.

User Avatar

No, neither. A facsimile is already a copy. Even if the facsimile has been accepted as a "true" representation of the original, it is still nothing more than a copy of it. A copy of a copy is not acceptable as "best evidence."

1. copy the original 2. then store the original safely 3. use the copy 4. when copy breaks refer to step 1

You can't modify the image like you would with the original. It is sometimes possible to make changes in Photoshop or overlay blocks to cover the original etc. but it is not particularly practical.

The original only remains in its original location when the copy command is used. The move command would move the original to a new location.

User Avatar

Of course you can, and having a copy of that signed contract would be helpful...

User Avatar

When you copy, the original is left where it is. When you move, the file is first copied, then deleted from the original location.

You only need to call the office, let him/her know your mother has died and request an original copy of her will. At the same time you could inquire about having that attorney represent the estate.
