Salto key fobs are based on MIFARE Classic EV1 or MIFARE DESFire EV1 tags. MIFARE Classic Salto key fobs (model number PFM01K or PFM04K) can be cloned. We do not support duplication PFD04K model at this moment.

Please note, the shape of the new key fobs we sell will look different than the original Salto key fob. If you want to buy the key fobs with the exact shape, please purchase them from your management office.

We support the following duplication methods for Salto tags:

  • Read the data with MIFARE Classic Tool (MCT)
  • Use an NXP PN532 reader and clone it yourself.
  • Mail your key fob to Mr. Key Fob. Please contact us first, we will provide the shipping address for you to send your key fob in. Please place an order after you ship your original key fob to us with the tracking number so that we know which package we receive belongs to which customer.

Instruction for reading the tag with the MIFARE Classic Tool (MCT):

MIFARE Classic Tool (MCT) is a very popular third-party Android application that can read MIFARE Classic tags. The tool can be downloaded from any app store on an Android phone. The application is also available on the Github:

Below are the steps to read a Salto key fob and send the data to Mr. Key Fob for duplication:

1. Open the app and click on "READ TAG".

2. Click on "SELECT ALL", then place the Salto key fob on the back of the phone, then press "START MAPPING AND READ TAG". Please be patient for it to finish reading (takes up to a minute).

3. If the above step is correct, it should lead you to the screen with all the content of the key fob. Make sure all the sectors have data and you don't see any sector saying "No keys found (or dead sector)". Then click on the Share icon on the top of the screen. Email yourself the .mct file.

4. Attach the .mct file (Start with UID_) to this page when placing the order.

5. Mr. Key Fob will send you the programmed fob based on the .mct file you sent us.

Duplication Instruction for using an NXP PN532 reader:

You will need a 64-bit Windows PC or a Mac (under development) to run the software.

You will also need an NXP PN532 reader to perform the read and write operation on the tag.

The software is open source and can be downloaded from here:

Just plug in the reader to your PC, download the application, run the PN532-Cloner.exe application and follow the instruction on the screen. No installation is required. The whole duplication process should only take under a minute (about 10 seconds to read the original tag and about 1 second to write the data to the new tag).
