USED and DEMO keys

Most of our used keys are bugs or paddles that have been lightly cleaned, missing parts installed if necessary (or available), rusted or excessively corroded items removed or replaced, readjusted and checked to assure proper operation. Used keys do not always have all parts correct for the era of the key, or have been extensively cleaned up, restored, rehabilitated. Examples would be units that we obtain with broken finger pieces, missing weights, missing other parts etc., that we have replaced or installed.

Some used keys are listed as "unrestored." These are used keys that are generally sold for $100 or less that we have done no labor on other than minor cleaning and doing an air check with an HF transceiver to assure it is working and ready to be used.

Photos are available for any used or demo item on request by email.

We sell used keys on 15 day approval. If you are not happy with the used key you bought, contact us within 15 days of receipt and on return of the item will credit you back 100% of the purchase price when the key is received at Vibroplex, less the shipping charge you were invoiced to send it out. We also offer a 90 day trade back period at full value toward new keys. If you bought a used key direct from us and decide you wanted a brand new one instead, we will credit you the full purchase price back towards the purchase of your new one within a 90 day period.
