Borrow from a friend and copy.

Several different cabis I've tried (different lots, different sizes) all use the same exact key. :confused:

I can't guarantee that that would be the case for every piece, but there seems to be a trend. :bsmilie: Maybe you can try first and see if a friend's key works on yours?

TS, your home has people stealing the stuff from your dry cabi? :)
I don't even know where I placed the key. Hopefully somewhere inside the dry cabi! :)

On my Digi-cabi, it looks like one of those normal cam locks you can buy from a hardware store for a few dollars. Then you'll have a non-standard lock, which no other digi-cabi user can open! :) How's that for safety? ;)

Bro it is not about stealing.

It is about kids opening the cabs and helping themselves to the equipment... :bigeyes:

If you have old servers to be trashed, you can use the same locks...

When I had my Digicabi 50L, my nephew will come and pull on the handle trying to open it, almost topple the dry cab. Now I upgrade to a 172L akarui, there is no door handle, and he leaves the dry cab alone.

And yes, the key from my dad's 172L akarui also work with mine.

And don't ask me why we need 344L worth of dry cab space in the same house... We both manage to fill our dry cabs up.... :bsmilie::eek:

We store a lot of things other than photography equipment in there. I think even my old ipod is in there. Some stuff no need dry cab also in there, just so when I load up my camera bag, I just need to load everything from one cabinate lor.

My dad's one more scary.. he's got 4 systems in his dry cab. And several very rare film PnS cameras inside. But recently, his drycab is getting lighter, as I am moving some of his Ai/Ais lenses to mine. :bsmilie:

Somehow my nephew ignores the cabinate with no handle. Luckily for me. And I am usually around to grab him if he tries something funny. ;)
