  1. Howdy Folks, A customer shipped a teardrop camper over to the US and needs keys made, It appears to be the newer FAP key blank N73266, Is there an aftermarket other blank or equivalent available that will work ? Did find a source here for original blanks, http://www.motorcaravanning.co.uk/shopuk/zadi_locks.htm Thanking You In Advance Again
  2. Thank You, And I apologize for taking so long to get back, Well it appears per the Hoppe Representatives here and in Canada that they cannot help us after several emails & phone calls, since these locks are apparently not part of the US / Canada based sales system, I did some more searching and found the locks are part of what is called the Hoppe Compact System (HCS), And that the cylinder/ plug assembly once inserted is non removable, And that the key blank you suggested may be the correct one looking at the photo but will not know till the locksmith in New York post farther information, Acquiring the blanks to try will be difficult here, though we do have a possible source for some JMA equivalent blanks here in the US, I think ... but without lock in hand as it is 3000 miles distant ... that some of the motorcycle keys or other double sided blanks may fit or be modified to fit, Silca EKC gives me dimensions of the HPP1 & HPP1R and says it is a 5 cut key, & Instacode gives 2 different cutting specs for them, both 7 cuts where I think the photo I see either 5 or 7 cuts, hard to tell, https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&ved=0ahUKEwjbn4yY7snaAhUEr1kKHctJBxQQFgg-MAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Falsataluminyum.com%2FHoppe%2FHoppe.pdf&usg=AOvVaw0teROz7lB3-NrXpmIFUL_N https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=3&ved=0ahUKEwjbn4yY7snaAhUEr1kKHctJBxQQFgg5MAI&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hoppe.com%2Fmedias%2Fsys_master%2Froot%2Fh13%2Fhc0%2F9075779305502%2FGCC-HOPPE-Basic-information-export-markets-09-2014.pdf%3Fattachment%3Dtrue&usg=AOvVaw3rzbZAhaVuDTsWJwUeWUFI https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjbn4yY7snaAhUEr1kKHctJBxQQFggnMAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hoppe.com%2Fmedias%2Fsys_master%2Froot%2Fh66%2Fh19%2F9075778224158%2FHOPPE-HCS-english-03-2013.pdf%3Fattachment%3Dtrue&usg=AOvVaw3qJz4sB5p3TRQLz_eg4NhP Again Thank You For Your Response, I will update as is posted on our forums but will be awhile I think before I hear back from him, Thank You Again
  3. Howdy Folks from across the pond, A locksmith in New York is inquiring about some what I think are Hoppe locks per his photos showing the logo on the lever handle He is trying to determine key way / key blank, and space & depth and the codes if they are available, 1 photo close up of his cylinder in lever with code with Hoppe logo, 1 photo of his mounted lock assembly, 1 photo... I think of correct key & cylinder I found on line..., He is trying to determine key blank, & a published code series if possible, or at least correct Space & Depth and key blank, I appears to be a wafer lock similar to their window locks I think, He is looking for code numbers, M007, M019, M030, M031, ...I am assuming it is a Zero and not an O (oh) since Instacode shows a Silca BAS4R, with 9 cuts for these codes though it may not be the right blank or code series... Any questions ?? Thanking You In Advance ***added better photo of logo***
  4. to many possibilities come up, photo of key way broaching ?? it appears to be double sided ?? brand of lock ?? brand of furniture ?? how many wafers ?? does it have master wafers ?? is it possible as a removable plug with proper removal key ?? ...if so you may be able to pick & remove it, single sided ?? double sided wafers on one side ?? double sided wafers on both sides ?? ...how many wafers on top and how many wafers on bottom ?? wafers symmetrical or a-symmetrical ?? separate or paired wafers ?? if applicable, maybe drive out tail piece / cam retainer , remove plug, try different blanks till one fits nicely, observe wafer heights and fit key by hand, and or find blank to fit nicely and impression to fit, i realize you are across the pond plus another 3000 miles, but might search this site and maybe get lucky and figure out manufacture of lock, lots of photos to go through, http://longlifelocks.ca/

    ID Key Please

    per code sources Moto Guzzi code # H50 cuts 3551 Silca AF5D, AF5B, ISP2
  6. might look at LD1 Ilco 1639 Ilco LRD 1D JMA here in the US, Seth Pehr can supply several of the blanks and cores, Lusterful, Azum, Trendway, (Chinese) Cyber Lock, not to be confused with electronic key company Cyber Lock , might contact him for information / help danielpehrinc@hotmail.com another source says a Silca DA6, Ilco X115, JMA DAT221, remove 0.10 from each edge so total edge to edge is .252, ...but I have not tested it myself...

    Motor cycle box

    Are you asking about luggage / pannier box ?? Honda original to bike, Or aftermarket brand, Many Honda motorcycle key codes are the last 3, some vintage being 3 digits, or much more commonly, a letter and 2 digits, try C56 and you come up with several Honda motorcycle models, and 3 different blanks, many luggage / pannier boxes were keyed to match bike or sold as sets keyed alike but different from the bike, but using Honda motorcycle keys and codes,, http://motorcyclekeys.com/ http://www.ilco.us/media/770046/v4/File/motorcycle-key-blank-reference.pdf
  8. Howdy All, My apologizes, a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all, Thank You for all of your help over the year+ Howard
  9. the one on the right is FIC1 long shank, but he newer FIC3 is the one to use now as it works in both the old and newer FIC locks= FIC3 Ilco 1681 Ilco FCS 2D JMA / FIC-3 JMA is there a code on the other side of the FIC blade blade ?? Th one on the left looks like an Ilco X132 or Silca LF12 used on Thule and Yakima locks

    Dirak 2233

    don't know of a substitute blank but can order keys here, don't know what your cost would be though with shipping, and such to Europe, maybe you folks have a switch key / enclosure key supplier there ?? http://www.pac-supply.com/Dirak-2233-replacement-keys-_p_2790.html# i would think maybe an electrical supply would have cut keys available, If i was at the switch or electrical enclosure I could try a few different blanks to see if what fit

    that is a FIC (Fastec Industries ) key for RV / Caravan door locks over here in the USA, and I believe it is Wesco in Europe, there is a recall on some of these keys & plugs here, as well as adding your own to them, http://www.fastecindustrial.com/recall/Fastec%20Cylinder%20Recall%20letter.pdf main site http://www.fastecindustrial.com/default.html it is the newer FIC3 / Ilco 1681 blank, as the older ones FIC1 / 1617 will not work well or at all in the newer locks,
