Contact Kewlmetal. Either look them up on their website or PM BigJoe on this forum. They will know how to get you replacements.

They wer of no help really. There is no lock code on the locks and I am sure I will need a locksmith to make a lock. Just not sure who can do it?

Well hate to be the Bearer of BAD News, But U can Not make keys for those Locks... KewlMetal has too many different Keys codes, U will Almost have to Buy New Locks :( :( Or at Least Send them Back to KewlMetal and See if they can MAYBE get U a New Key :idea: :idea: Good Luck!!

Oh And I have talked to Joe before about this Very Matter, So ......

They come with more than one key.... where's the spare? I suppose it might be harder to find than the missing key you were using? :lol:
Well the spare set was here but as luck has it NOBDY knows where they are now. As far as not having a key code etc sound to me to be kinda stupid. What is soooo freaking special about these locks. I won't buy any more of them just figure out another way to secure my helmet I guess since they cost too much IMHO.

There's got to be a way to handle the situation. What did Kewlmetal say? Don't they have a keycode on the lock on the inside somewhere? You'd think you could disassemble it and find some info. You could also try Kury, since they sell the same part... maybe their support is better. Or, try to make your own key... it isn't that complex. It's just a round tube with a couple divots cut out where the pins in the lock are and a nub that sticks out to index it. Given a tube of the right size and a dremel you could probably make your own.

Or keep looking for that spare...

Thry are barrel locks right? I've heard if you warm the open end of a Bic pen and shove it in the hole, it will work in emergency.
