What are Keyed Alike Padlocks?

Do you have more than one lock and don’t like carrying around a bunch of keys? Then you need a keyed alike system from Masterlocks.com.

What does Keyed Alike mean?

Keyed alike is when one key can open many locks, providing the user with one-key convenience. MasterLocks.com offers many lock models keyed alike. You can create a keyed alike system with the same lock model or different padlocks that are used for many different applications. For example, these four very different locks can be unlocked by the same key.



Keyed Alike systems are perfect for industrial applications where the employee needs to access several padlocks. If you want to have the convenience of having one key, but don’t want to give your employees access to all the locks you can look into a more complex system, like a Master Keyed system. A Master Keyed system is like a Keyed Alike system, but you can create groups of locks that don’t share the same key. However, the Master Key can open all padlocks within the system.

If you already have a Keyed Alike system and would like to add more locks, you will need your key number, which you can find on the back of your key.


For some padlocks, you may find your key number on the padlock’s packaging.


Once you have your key number you can go to Masterlocks.com, and enter your key number where it asks if you have an existing key number.


Or if you would like some assistance creating your keyed alike set or you would like assistance with a more complicated system like a Master Keyed System, you can call Masterlocks.com Customer Service Number 1-800-778-2217.

To keep track of your key number for future reference or for Replacement Keys enter it in at MasterLockVault.com or download the Master Lock Vault app, which is available in the Google Play Store or the App Store.
