I'm very much a locksmith novice but have enjoyed learning a ton from this forum about how a lock works etc. My question is pretty straightforward, but here is the back story: I have a nice set of matching Master Lock padlocks in various sizes 3, 5, Pro Series, and specific use items such as trailer locks and receiver locks. For me 1 key convenience/deterrence outweighs security, so not really looking for solutions that stray from the idea I have.
I use the Master Lock k1 key i.e. xxxx numbered keys, I can order most locks/items I need easily by key number. I have a few large tool boxes/containers that have cheap cam locks in them that I would like to swap out and use my same master lock k1 XXXX key. Again this more convenience/deterrent based than strong security problem thing. I know that all you pickers can get through these in a minute or less, but most of locks I use are to keep kids from using something or getting into something they shouldnt.
I have looked high and low and have come up with really one solution and a possible solution. Any master locksmiths want to throw in a idea?
1) Purchase a Master Lock Key Cabinet like the 7122D cabinet and just remove the cam lock and adapt it as needed. http://www.lockmastersusa.com/product.j ... 13&cid=297
2) Purchase some kind of universal cylinder cam lock and find a master lock cylinder with the keyway I need, rekey and make it work. http://www.olympus-lock.com/820lc.htm
But I cant figure out what cylinder will fit!
Am I missing the obvious? Does another off the shelf cam lock or disc lock use the k1 keyway that can be rekeyed?
Thanks for any advice!
