Finding an accommodating key


I bought a pair of these decorative deadbolt locks very reasonably for the front and back doors of a property we are working on. These are unique, as they are solid brass, which is why I love them, but the Kwikset keys that are currently for the house will not even fit in the hole. I have two other deadbolts to replace, but do not want to buy two more of these because they are a bit expensive. Any advice on finding locks that will accept the key to these units?

Finding an accommodating key


It may not be the same thing, but when I bought this house I called a locksmith who rekeyed, the front and the side garage door, and the deadbolt lock on the side door. He then gave me the number of keys I requested.

So.........would a locksmith be your answer?

AIW is a lock maker---only AIW keys will ever fit them---if you want the dead bolt and knob to use the same key---then either get an AIW knob or change the dead bolt to a Kwikset---
