Default Lock replacements

Just purchased our bird as a repo unit. The previous owner refused to give up the keys so all of the locks need to be replaced. I would prefer to key alike. What company supplies such locks?

I would call a local Lock Smith if you only wanted the lock cylinders.

your talking bay door locks?
Theres only about 4 lock numbers,mine is a 505 key,i think.
I think all birds need the same key,that way if something weird is happening at a rally,another owner may be able to save the day!

Bird owners back in the day always hid keys outside,and everyone hid them in the same place.
For the same reasons.

Once,when we were at Maxton at the races John Redden parked his coach and went to have lunch in town,a track worker came by and said we needed to move that coach.

I looked in the hiding spot,got the keys and moved the coach.
When John got back he looked me up and thanked me,saying "i knew it had to be you,nobody else knew where the key was hidden!"
I don't think we need to publish the keys location on the forum,but we need to all know,in case of fire etc...

I agree with Rick. A good locksmith should be able to make you keys to fit the existing locks. Or, as a last resort, re-key the existing locks.
