Why would they make a padlock that opens with a common handcuff key and then NOT disguise the keyhole so it does not look like a handcuff key fits it? : Locksmith

Yes, they make a padlock that opens with a common handcuff key (the handcuff key can be bought for less than a dollar).

Just seems kind of stupid. They could make it with a different shaped keyhole that looks like a regular wide keyway, but also fits a handcuff key. WHY NOT DO THAT?

You wouldnt want someone examining the padlock’s keyhole and easily deducing that a common handcuff key would open it, right?

[NEED ADVICE] So this afternoon I wanted to open my garage door and the key that normally opens this door doesn’t unlock the lock anymore. I have a couple keys and they all don’t work anymore, is there something I can do so it opens again or do I need to call a locksmith. Thanks in advance. : Locksmith

Honestly though, places for locksmiths and people that want to discuss unique locks are few and far inbetween. The more traffic this sub gets, the more people find it, and the more discussions we can have as a community. Some posts may get redundant but in the long run I think they’re helping as long as it’s not someone just saying “ay how do I get into this kwikset lock” I think it’s okay.
