    Wasn't sure where to post this.

    I was just wondering when you get a new lock fitted for an internal front door, how many original keys come with it? I can't seem to find the answer.


    Thanks!

    I got 3 with a new front door lock. It's a terrible lock though, really easy to pick. I'm hoping no one tries that at my house. The lesson is don't skimp on security.

    Usually three - one for when you lose your first one, then one for when you lose that.

    Do you honestly think there's some sort of standard for this? It depends on your locksmith and what you ask for.

    Yale locks are also easy to pick..

    You need either a 5 lever or 7 lever mortice lock. No ones gonna be able to pick that. (It might also give you a slight discount on your home contents insurance)

    Not as easy. The yale lock I had before had security pins in, makes it quite a bit harder to pick.
