Key Numbers on Locks

Q. Is there a number on my lock that a thief could use to get a key made?

A. To my knowledge, none of the locks we sell have any visible markings on the lock that indicate the cut of the key

Many people see a number near the blade of a key and assume that it indicates the cut.  Usually this is just a number indicating the key blank number.

Not having any marking showing the actual cut is is a good thing from a security standpoint, but doesn’t help you if you lose your keys…….so be sure to write down the numbers of the keys keep it in a safe place.
