I think a local locksmith would either be able to make the keys or give you a reason why keys can not be made for your locks. Look up 'locksmith' in your local yellow pages.

SOURCE: I need extra keys for my Kwikset handleset. Had

The problem you are having has nothing to do with your lock. Modern key cutting machines are so automated that they do a very poor job in key duplication. I suggest that you find an old hardware store that has an older key machine. Or possibly, it might be cheaper to simply replace the lock set. A new Kwikset keyed entry sells for about $40.00 for a lever handle. Remember to have extra keys cut at the store when you purchase the you can check the duplicates in the store. I do this at Home Depot regularly. They have a new machine, but with the lock right there, they can manage to cut some duplicates after a few bad ones.

Hope This Helps,

SOURCE: smart key kwikset lock stopped working with the key.

I have just experienced the same problem. After 4 calls and an hour on hold, a warranty representative is going to send me replacement cylinders. I am not happy since 3 of the 4 locksets are already installed. My wife and daughter were locked out for 3 hours!!! Would not recommend this product!

SOURCE: Professional Door Lock installation Kit: After 2-3 years all of the sudden none of our keys...

The lock is bad very common problem with them, If you got 2-3 years out of your "smartkey" lock those things are like dinosaurs most of them don't make it 3 months and this problem happens. Get the traditional pin tumbler version of the Kwikset lock and this will never happen again. Plus it will be an easy swop out since they use the same latch.

We had to cut a lock off and that lock goes to other enclosures I just replaced the locks. Are you able to replace that similar lock? I want it keyed alike with the other locks

either buy a set of locks that are keyed alike a few places carry bulk locks --or buy locks that can be keyed to what ever key you want call a locksmith and ask for places to buy bulk verses interchangeable tumbler locks

Can I order more keys? I went to make a copy and it did not copy exactly (slightly off).

Take the lock with you and Lowe's should stand behind their work. The key machine needs to be adjusted correctly and the operator needs to know how to cut a key correctly. Once you find a reliable hardware store, you'll want to patronize them. The newer automatic cutting machines are not, necessarily more accurate. In fact, they can be completely wrong for some locks and keys. Imported locks are not always made to the same specs as well-known brands, even though they use the same key blank.

Need to order replacement key mine broke off i have number on key , its a brindk padlock stainless steel number m1 0916

If you have both pieces of the broken key, it can be duplicated.

I did not find that key code listed for Brinks, but perhaps you can get one from Brinks. A locksmith can make a key, check the cost. You really don't want to pay more than the cost of replacing the lock.

I have a Brinks padlock model TSA007 it has a keyhole but it didnt come with a key, can i purchase a key just for backup?

That key wont do anyting but allow TSA to open that lock. You cannot get that key because it is a master key that opens all those locks and it is restricted.

My brinks 4-dial combination padlock will not open

sometimes the dial rings slip on these locks and sometimes it is just the spring release is stuck. you can try and spray some lube down into the lock and let it sit for awhile,, try the combo again,, if that does not work then you might consider maybe replacing the lock with something newer and more reliable.
hope this helps,
