KEYED ALIKE (KA): SIMPLY USE ONE KEY TO OPEN ALL LOCKS
Keyed Alike locks mean that 1 key will work multiple locks.
If you already have locks/padlocks to a specific key, we can make more locks/padlocks to your existing key. We can only key alike the same brand of locks (this means that a Weiser lock cannot be keyed alike to a LSDA lock).
An ideal choice is to have multiple door locks working on the same key, for example: Main entrance door, back door, various home or building doors.
Padlocks are mostly keyed alike to certain key numbers, this means that each keyed alike padlock will come with 2 keys. This also means that you can add additional padlocks to your system at any point in the future as long as you order the same key number as previously ordered.
KEYED DIFFERENT (KD): Keyed different is the standard key configuration. This means that every lock you purchase will have different keys.
RESTRICTED KEYS: A restricted key blank is a keyway and blank for which a manufacturer has set up a restricted level of sales and distribution. Restricted keys are often protected by patent, which prohibits other manufacturers from making unauthorized productions of the key blank. With a restricted security key, further copies can only be duplicated by the locksmith who issued the keys.
NOTE: Customers must provide proof of ID before Supreme Lock will cut additional keys using restricted blanks.
Secure records are kept when the restricted key system is set up, as to secure how many number-stamped keys were issued. A signature record form is kept with these records and only these approved signatories can ever request more keys. These days, many restricted keys have special in-laid features, such as magnets, different types of metal or even small computer chips to prevent duplication.
Benefits of this system is total key control
Your affordable solution to a restricted "Key Control System"
MASTER KEYED (MK): Master keyed locks are locks that have unique keys for each individual lock but also work with a Master key which is a key that works all the supplied locks in that system.
Master keying allows the option to have each door on its own key, but the manager/supervisor can have a master key to open all doors.
We can supply you with a basic, single level master key system, or a multi-level master key system. We can create any size of master key system. We can even supply padlocks and cylinders master keyed, so you can have all of your locks on a master key system if you wish.
