Additional Information

If the proper hardware has been ordered using the letters and/or numbers off the head of the key, then it is usually possible to key to your existing keys. Most often, it is physically possible to key the locks to an existing master key system. However, there are standards that must be met in order for these things to be done properly.

We’ll address keying to an existing key first. First and foremost, the key you are requesting we use must be cut to manufacturers specifications. Using a worn key or a “generational key” creates a situation where we can only guarantee the lock will work with the single key provided. A “generational key” is a copy of a key that is not original to manufacturers’ specifications. The first copy from an original is a 1st generation key. The copy made from the 1st copy is a 2nd generation key. The copy made from the 2nd copy is a 3rd generation key and so on. Some places do a good job cutting keys and adjust their key machines on a regular basis.

Most manufacturers do make a line of locks and keys which do have key duplication restrictions. The locks and keys have patents which limit production of the key blanks to the original manufacturer. The manufacturer then controls key blank distribution through contracts with the distributors of their products.

For top shelf protection we recommend Medeco High Security Locks which are tested for resistance to forced entry, pick resistance, and drill resistance in addition to the key duplication restrictions. Medeco also produces a line of locks, KeyMark, that focus on the key duplication restrictions only and therefore may save you money by not buying features you don’t feel you need. Medeco and KeyMark also make a wide variety of replacement cylinders that may fit into existing hardware thereby saving you money. In many cases you won’t have to buy complete replacement hardware for this reason.

The color of the lock is referred to as the finish. An important factor in determining finish is climate. Salty air, corrosive vapors, or constant high humidity may have a damaging effect on metal finishes. How long a finish will hold up will be influenced by the base metal and finishing process as well as the different methods of cleaning and care. For example, a non-clear coated finish should not be cleaned with soaps or solvents whereas a clear coated finish may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive soap and buffed lightly with a clean cloth. It’s best to check with the manufacturer to obtain the recommended cleaning instructions for your hardware. Finishes will vary slightly between manufacturers and you may even see finish differences between a lock and its cylinder, strike plate, or screws.

Some manufacturers now have a bright brass finish which may be referred to as “Lifetime”. There are differences between the manufacturers on the warranty of the finish, but the “Lifetime” is generally 25 years or more. Although similar to the 605 BRIGHT BRASS finish, each manufacturer does have their own finish number designation. Be sure to specify the “Lifetime” or “Anti-tarnish” finish when ordering hardware.

We will try to help you identify the style or design of your existing hardware in order to match the new hardware. Often, a survey is required. We have had some success in being able to identify hardware from digital photos sent by e-mail used in conjunction with information obtained over the phone. Many times there are letters and/or numbers written on the head of the key used to work the existing lock. These letters and/or numbers are good information to have when trying to identify the hardware. Occasionally, there may be a name written on the lock or on the faceplate of the latch or bolt on the edge of the door.

Some places do a good job cutting keys and adjust their key machines on a regular basis. Many do not.

But no matter how well the duplicating machine is maintained, there will be a variance between the original key and each successive generation cut. We test our key machines to the 5th generation when adjusting our key machines. We recommend that when you get a new key, whether to a home, business, or vehicle, to immediately get a copy for daily use and store the original to be used when duplicating keys in the future. Ask about available key storage boxes or notebooks.

Keying to an existing master key system presents an additional set of concerns. First, you must realize that having a master key system generally reduces security and increases convenience. Second, there are rules to master keying which will help reduce loss of security. Master keying should not be random, but should be done from a developed master key system. The master key system should have a list of keys which have been used (known as a bitting list). Otherwise the locksmith who tries to create new keys to the master key system takes a chance that the new keys may unintentionally work other locks. This is sometimes referred to as a “ghost master” or an “incidental master”.

We require any system we work on to be to manufacturers’ specifications. We recommend you consider a new master key system if you do not have a bitting list. Let us help you reduce the liabilities related to haphazard keying.

Although similar to the 605 BRIGHT BRASS finish, each manufacturer does have their own finish number designation. Be sure to specify the “Lifetime” or “Anti-tarnish” finish when ordering hardware. You should use this type of hardware on your front door. Whether you are selling the home next week or in ten years, the front door is usually the first door seen by prospective buyers. Don’t scrimp on the front door lock. Get high quality locks and if you are going with a brass finish then get the “Lifetime” finish. Nickel and pewter finishes are popular these days as well.
