This key safe's external measurements are (H x W x D): 20 x 16 x 8 cm, and it weighs 1 kilogram. It has a matte black finish. Yale is one of the world's oldest multinational brands and is perhaps the most well-known name in the security sector. Founded in 1826, Yale originally manufactured sewing machines; it did not begin producing keys until 1953.
The original key made by Yale was called a "lockkeeper". In 1860, Charles L. Hutchinson invented a more efficient mechanism that is now used by most modern keys. This new mechanism could open several locks with one key, which for many years was considered a great achievement. In 1960, William M. Stiehl added another important improvement to the key by adding a cylinder to hold several layers of plastic or aluminum, which are very hard to scratch. The resulting key is called a "polymer" or "plastic" key.
Yale keys are still made from stainless steel and are hardened to resist wear and tear. Although they are durable, they can also be destroyed by drilling, cutting, or filing. When this happens, the key no longer opens any lock and needs to be replaced.
Keys can be lost, stolen, or damaged and need to be replaced.
The key weighs 2.3 pounds (1.1 kilograms), and the base is 8 7/8 inches. The key is made of steel, and the plastic coating on the surface is durable enough for repeated use.
Keys are used to lock doors and containers. There are two types of keys: housekeys and office keys. Housekeys are used to open homes, while office keys are used to open offices or other administrative buildings. Keys can also be classified by size: small, medium, and large. This fact sheet focuses on standard housekeys.
A housekey is useful because it can fit into many locks without changing the key. This means that if you lose your housekey, you do not have to buy another one; you can simply go to any local hardware store and they will be able to cut you a new key.
Housekeys usually contain a number of pins, which are small pieces of metal with different shapes. These pins form certain patterns when placed next to each other. Your job is to match these patterns to the patterns on the lock you are trying to open. If you fail to match up all the patterns correctly, then the key will not work on the lock.
