Funny thread actually. Over the weekend I was away. As most folk know I have an abi ace ambassador, seasonal, next to the storage area. A relitive has a late70's / early 80's Lunar. When i'm there I always go in, check over etc. We have a key to each other's caravan in case one of us is up and runs out of teabags or something :unsure:

 

Anyway, I didn't run out of anything but last night done my usual slow walk round the storage area with the dog and decided to check his caravan - only when I locked the door I realised i'd used MY caravan key and it opened and locked his door no problem :o

I think you will find it is fact the template and not as you are thinking the cut key. When you go into Mr M***** or any other key cutting shop they check the number on the key to get a blank for that model number as keys come in all shapes and sizes. Your key is then used in conjunction with this blank to cut a duplicate. That's what the number on the key is for, not to identify your individual key tooth pattern :)

so you think someone with 50 keys are going to come and try them all in your caravan door . .. now put your house key number in ebay . . my back door key fits the neighbours house

I think you will find number on key does refer to touth pattern WD. ... - I believe there are 199 variants available.

 

Was most useful recently when we lost a set of keys - got dupliacte from ebay for £2. 49

 

We have a high security key for door (recent sterling) with FW. ..... code - These need to be ordered so not quite so readily available.

Until recently,like last 6 or 7 years, most makes were covered by as little as 5 different key patterns. ...it was often easy to find someone with a key if you were locked out. ..not so easy now. ....

Well the key for my caravan that opened my cousin's caravan over the weekend was actually a spare for my caravan i'd got cut. I remember going into the key place, askng for a spare key and he said the key he was using was one probably used for a shed / garage but don't know how the numbers work.

 

If the numbers are just a guide to the type / size of key you need, how did a spare key for my ace ambassador fit a Lunar??:blink: Just wondering that's all. It was that snug a fit like I say I didn't realise until I went to lock the door and noticed it was my spare key i'd used to get into his. And no it wasn't a mistake cos both our caravan keys are silver yet my spare's gold and it was this I had.

Like anything there are only so many key pattern combinations, same as music I guess, every now and then someone comes out with a song where part of it sounds very much like something else :)
