nice lock, but why even BOTHER w/ a key...
having to use a key means you have to at least one of the following -

turn your truck off to unlock the lock.
always have your truck keys on you.
keep an extra key w/ you.

if you loose your truck keys or their stolen, now youve lost the lock key too !

i use the "Set-your-own combination" Master Lock #175, no key required and
i can set, reset or change the 4 digit combination !

That's the kind of thinking that keeps everything diverse. Because different people like different things. I personally like having a keyed lock, it's easier to operate in the dark. Plus if I hand someone the key to open the gate, they don't know the combination to get back in when I'm not around.

There is nothing wrong with liking a combo lock more. It just comes down to preference. I think this is an awesome option for those who prefer the keyed lock.

I love this keyed alike lock to a vehicle. For instance, I would like 2 for the race trailer. Only one person needs to be inside it, and I only tow it with one vehicle. Obviously it doesn't fit all applications, just like a combo doesn't fit all applications in my opinion. I do not like combo locks on gates. Although my Dad always says "locks were made to keep your friends out". LOL

Those are cool! Only problem I forsee is if I get one for my enclosed sled trailer pulled behind my superduty, just about anyone else with a Ford key can also get in there... other than that its a unique idea! Nothing wrong with being different!

Great idea, one small drawback for me, We have multiple vehicles we use for towing, so we would have to carry all the keys with the trailer.

I'll try a set.

it programs to YOUR key just like your ignition in your steering column! First time you put your key it, it tumbles itself to your key.

I'm liking them already , I got at least three master lock keys on my key ring and if i could replace three keys with one extra truck key i am gonna do it. sounds pretty good to me, no more trying to find matching key codes, thats the reason I have three different master lock keys to begin with

If they have the same key as you, then they would just take the whole truck and trailer. :toytruck

It actually is set to the key that you initially use. It has thousands of possible key codes which is much more than you will get with other keyed locks. If someones key was similar enough to open the lock, it would also open the door on your truck and work in the ignition.


On Edit: Sorry for the repeated info, I guess I should have checked the second page.
