The Ultion WXM is an upgrade to the Ultion lock and brings added protection and security. The Ultion WXM two-part plug design uses molybdenum instead or brass to make it more robust. It also houses two hardened SS630 attack pins that fire when an attack is detected. The new Ultion WXM Keys are around 33% thicker than the original Ultion Keys. The reason for this is to allow more pin heights resulting in more picking difficulty. These keys are new on the market in 2020 and are not yet widely available in key cutting shops across the British Isles. It's best to contact the shop beforehand to see if they are able to cut a WXM key.
