We’ve just added our first app to our Tools page. The Key Blank Cross-Reference will allow locksmiths to cross-reference both OEM and aftermarket key blank part numbers, which will allow locksmiths to research purchasing alternatives as well as source or cross-reference keys/blanks that a customer may have.
At the time of launch, we’ve included nearly 200 unique OEM key blanks across nearly 50 brands. These entries represent the most common blanks in use today, both in residential and commercial sectors. In addition to the OEM manufacturers and part numbers, we’ve included their aftermarket equivalents. Aftermarket manufacturers include:
How To Use The App
Using the key blank cross-reference program is straight forward. Simply type in a manufacturer’s, OEM or aftermarket, part number into the search box and either hit “Enter” on your keyboard or click the magnifying glass icon. The program will then return results that show not only the part number you searched but all available equivalent blanks and their respective part numbers.
In addition to equivalent blank part numbers, you’ll also see Jet Hardware Manufacturing’s illustration of the key blank as well as the keyway. Simply scroll over this image to enlarge it. If you require the full size image, right-click on the image to open it. It’s as simple as that!
We’ve also included an option to allow users (you!) to submit suggestions for new entry. If we don’t have a blank included that you think we should, simply click on the “Suggest New Entry” button in the bottom right hand of the screen, complete the pop-up form, and click “Done!”. We’ll do our best to update based on requests.
Speaking of updates, this is only the start for this programming. We plan to add more OEM and aftermarket key blanks to this program soon. In other words, this will be an ongoing project.
