I know that many drivers have Abloy locks. I lost a key and need a replacement. Is it possible? I want to explore all the options before I buy a new lock...

Our company supplies them and for some they can cut new keys.

These folks might be able to help but it might be costly https://securitysnobs.com/Abloy-Cut-Key.html

I don't know Andrey. I have three of them, but I've never lost a key or had a spare one made.

This might be an example of having a spare key hidden on the outside of the truck, the same as a spare ignition or door key wired somewhere for emergency use. Maybe we should all start doing this for our securement locks, too?

I have a spare key outside in a magnetic box, in a small ziplock bag with some motor oil inside, but this padlock is different - I got it with the truck, and there was only one key. I asked at Home Depot, they couldn't make a spare. I should have asked a locksmith, but never did it... my bad. If the boss doesn't have a spare or our locksmith cannot make a new key, I'll have to buy a new lock.

I hope you can come up with another key because those locks are expensive!

Thank you! Blanks at $10 is a reasonable price. I need to find out whether a locksmith can use it for my lock.

I don't know exactly how this works but I once had a locksmith make a key for me based on the lock's code (I bought a utility box that the seller had lost the keys for) and they charged a slightly higher price but not really crazy ($15?). He told me that only bonded locksmiths could do that kind of service.

Never heard of em, so I googled em lol DANNNNG ! Them are expensive padlocks! I'll srick with my heavy duty master locks, got plenty of em, then 3 of those round kinda locks....

Youtube guy "Locksmith" he has videos watched 3 or 4 of em how he picks those Finnish locks, different model #s they have 10 discs and with fake slots eh took him all of 5 minutes to pick it then gutted it all out, disc by disc... Acrually was pretty cool to watch lol But a good couple blows on lots of locks does the trick....Most padlocks have a tiny hole somewhere too for picking? I forget.....

Not a thief so don't need to know lol, only how to get back in my truck, after locking the keys inside (don't ask.....YEAH on the fuel Island ) hahaha Had to go in and buy their $32 lock pick set, all mine are at home.....NOW, I puit the extra in my pocket, that won't happen twice!

Years ago bought me a master lock pick set with american and euro/asia picks off the Mac tool truck, prolly around 100 different key profiles.....

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Stevo, these locks are super hard. My guess is that it works best against people with bolt-cutters, not the ones who have skills to pick an Abloy. I personally tried to cut it, not even a scratch :-)
