Locksmithing/Key Blank


I am trying to identify a key blank that I can use to cut a copy key with the inscription:  PYCM S

The lock is fitted to a garage door.  I have traced PYCM key blanks, but they are a different profile.  Searches on most on-line blank suppliers only produces PYCM (X1014F) and not the correct one.

Hi Keith,

Thanks for writing! When I did a search of this code I came up with the following results:

  X1014L   Ilco
   LO1   Ilco
   LR1R   Silca

I hope this helps. I will continue to search around, but as you know it can be quite difficult to track down key blanks.

Thanks again for writing.
