Restricted section keys

We’ve had a restricted key section for many years so that we can build locks and make master suites etc. When using a restricted key, security is ensured as no-one but the person who requested the locks / keys can have extra keys cut. Anyone trying to get a duplicate copy of the key from shops in town etc will find that nobody can order that keyblank to be able to duplicate the key.

If you hand a key to someone, and a while later get it back from them, you are totally confident that there is no other key held by them as they can’t have got it copied.
