Default Snap-on key questions

1. Are replacement keys available directly from Snap-on for older boxes? My search only found the newer style keys and locks.
2. I have a '76 KRA 59D with the lock #1440. Any chance one of you has a couple of extra keys with that number in the collection?
3. I have an extra #1336 key. Anyone have that lock and need a key?



thnx, jack vines

you might be able to go to the new style of key. the K500/K600 series and get rid of the old stuff. I think that number may be outdated.
I only have y300 and y400 series keys as left overs. and very few at that. might order you a set K1LA would do it or if you need two locks order K2LA

Just go get copies made at a locksmith. You can order the tubular keys from your dealer, i think i paid about 6-8 for each of my replacements.

that works also.
but it sure makes the older box look nice when you see a new chrome lock on the front of it.

If you look in the archive, I posted a company LDV or LVD or something like that, that has a bunch of the keys. (The co. does "tool displays" etc. for mobile tool trucks).
I got one for an c.80's KR274 side box. It was about $6 incl. shipping.
Dealer can also order for you, AFAIK.


I've got another question by the way:

If you buy one of those 3 or 4 packs of new locks/keys, can you specify the key code you want? My dealer thought you couldn't. Which makes it a drag for me, because I wanted to key all the old boxes the same as my newer Classic 78.



P.S. IIRC, the KR274 takes a "Y" series key, which is what I got.

I can order any number, it may take a few days klonger if they have to cut more. but yes you can. take your key number ( K666) and add kp to it and that will give you the key and plug so order k666KP and have him just add the quantity to it, I do it every week.
