Anyone have any idea on how many different keys were made for T6s/SNJs?
Or has anyone had a locksmith make one for a lock?
Thanks
GH

You can buy a new lock and key from Lance. I have also had a new key made. The locksmith used some ink and then cut out the parts that showed interference.

Thanks, but Lance sells the entire latch only. Tried a locksmith in Corpus but he was no help (read lazy).
Will look around for others. Appreciate your response

I know I'm a little late to the party here, but I had an old school locksmith make a key to fit my lock. Works great.

Or try a Corbin Cabinet lock. Cessna had 7 different locks and it was pretty easy to find a key that fits. You might be able to change the lock out and find the right tail piece that gives you the right offset...
