We just want to verify that you need the Keyed-Different (KD) option on your padlocks. Please read below if you are unsure which keying option you need. If you are sure you need KD, click 'Continue adding to cart with KD'. Otherwise, click 'Let me change my key option' to be brought back to the page to choose a different keying option.



Each lock is opened by its own unique key that does not open any other lock in the set.  You receive two keys per lock ordered.   If you need additional locks in the future, you will not be able to match the key codes.

KEYED-ALIKE: (additional charge)

This option provides "same key" convenience and eliminates the need for multiple keys where numerous locks are used.  All locks in the set are opened by the same key.

This aids in key control, as the administrator often retains the keys as one set can open every lock.  You receive two keys with each lock.  When ordering additional locks, you may order them keyed to the same number, if applicable.

MASTER-KEYED: (additional charge)

If you need individual users to have access to their own lock but do not want them to be able to access all locks as in a keyed-alike system, then a Master Keyed System may be the way to go.  In a master key system, you receive one "master key" which opens all the locks in the system although each lock also has its own unique key.  This allows individual users to have their own keys, while also allowing an authorized person to have supervisory or emergency access to each lock.

When ordering additional locks, you can have them keyed to the same master key number. You will receive one Master Key at no charge with your first order. Additional Master keys can be ordered, however, we do suggest limiting the number of people having complete access to your padlocks.
