    I have a bunch of around 20 cabinet keys for most of the different ones we have although most of the newer ones are one of two keys. The screwdriver in the lock tends to work and you can usually turn the full lock then unscrew it and replace it.

    If you can get the cabinet details I will see what I can do with my pile of spares!!

    Locks are often standard makes - Lowe and Fletcher common enough. It's usually trivial to obtain spare keys based on the manufacturer and barrel number - I certainly "know a man who can".

    I find a 92MST (92 Master) works! It is the master key for most filling cabinets\cupboards and seems to fit a multitude of cabs too. I also have another key that seems to get into other cabs...its number is 92250. (I am not a key geek btw)

    yep the old 92250 key works in a lot of cabs (most of the cabs from MILLS I think use these).

    One of these:



    And about 10 seconds of your time, will open most cabs in a non-damaging manner.

    I've forced the lock with a screwdriver, and taken out the pins. It now uses the universal "screwdriver" key. I've got lots of 92250 keys which do work with every other cab in school, however the one cab that has a non-standard lock of a completely different size was the one I needed access to. Thanks to everybody for their useful ideas.

    hehe 92250 keys are very usefull and i've got one of those 92MSTs too! In the old days if you wanted a key to a classroom you'd borrow someone elses, take it down the heelbar and claim it back on expenses. Now its all patented keys and swipe cards! I think some cabs are moving away from the RONIS keys (same as 250s). I keep a pot of misc keys that I don't know what they fit, never chuck em because you will find where they fit someday!

    You can order new keys from the manufacturer, I find alot of my cab keys will fit other cabs that are similar anyhow. I have 3 cabinets from the same mani and their keys all work with each other.

    Otherwise fold over a paper clip!
