A master key is a key which operates two or more locks which each have different key combinations. Many people think that they have a master key because they have one key which opens two or three or ten or more locks when they are really just keyed alike.
A good example of master keying in a residential application would be that the
homeowner has a key which will operate all of the locks and there is another key which
only allows access to the garage. This garage key could be given to a gardener to allow
access to garden tools and supplies without allowing access to the rest of the house.
If one single key can be inserted into the keyhole of all of your locks, they can be master keyed. If one key can't be inserted into all of your locks, it is often possible to replace the cylinders of the locks to make them compatible, or replace the one or two different locks.
Another option is to upgrade to a high security lock system and gain key control
features as well as operational efficiency.
Interchange is when one
of the keys in the system will operate a lock it isn't supposed to operate.
