    Re:Lock

    "Dependant on the lock type, 3 to 5 keys on new. You should never pay for spare keys from a new fit, as sufficient keys come as standard."

    "Hi Adam

    This depends on the branding of the locks. Different manufacturers supply different amount of keys.

    Some circumstances it will depend on the lock also. Generally mortise locks are provided with x2 keys whereas cylinders are provided with x3.

    Against manufacturers differ"
