Top 100 Key Blanks (Commercial & Residential)

The Top 100 Key Blanks for Commercial and Residential Key blanks from Ilco / Kaba a key blank manufacturer they sell to locksmiths and key stores. Most popular key blanks a locksmith cuts or duplicates will vary by Region and location within a City. In Canada the most popular key blank duplicated is the Weiser “W1″ and the Schlage “SC1″ key blanks. I had a locksmith shop next to several large office buildings and the most Popular key I cut was the Sargent “LA.” The most popular key at my newest locksmith shop and key store in Downtown Vancouver, BC is the Schlage 6 pin “SC4″ and Best Keys.

In future Blogs I will discuss key blank identification, key blank selection for your key store and locksmith shop, locations and suppliers of to purchase key blanks. Also, I will talk about Imported locks or “Off Shore” manufactured keys and locks and the problems duplicating keys for these North American clones.

Also, the major problem is shoe repair and corner stores cutting keys. To save money they cut keys on Master key blanks, rather than stocking the various keyways in a particule brand of lock they only stock and cut the ‘Master’ blank. An example is Schlage locks key blank series (C, CE, E, EF, F, FG …). The inexperienced key cutters just stock the Schlage ‘L” blank which is the Master for all the keyways and cut all Schlage on the Master “L” Key blank. On a large office building with multiple floors and offices the master key system has now been comprised. More of this in later Blogs. When I see the amount of master key blanks in the top 100 keys and how many of these keys customers bring to our Mr. Locksmith Key Store in SFU Harbour Centre Mall at 555 W Hastings Street Vancouver BC (Downtown Vancouver) I try to point out how their master key system and building security has been comprised.

In a future Blog I will discuss the solution to unauthorized key duplication.
