    Hi Everyone - Weve bought a 75 Bay Camper and my latest issue is keys... the van came with no keys.. Ive read that there is a serial number on the locks I can use to get another key cut.. (Obvisouly i want to start with the ignition)

    Has anyone done this?

    Has anyone used a locksmith in Sydney to get a new key based on the code~?

    Thanks John

    If a locksmith can't rekey on the basis of the number (but they should be able to) then another option would be to buy a new lock/key set for, say, a door and then take all the barrels into a locksmith (some may do it onsite, but it will cost extra) and ask them to rekey all the locks to your new keys. Any proficient locksmith should be able to do it, but it would be wise to get quotes from several as prices can wildly vary. Good luck. :)

    I've had a key cut from the ignition barrel code at a local locksmith. It was a little more expensive but the key fits like a charm in the ignition barrels and all doors. The locksmith just types the code into his computer, got the pattern and cut the key. Well worth it if you ask me.
