Ask the Experts | Ask the Key Wizard | 6-Pin Key Blank for the Reverse of a Y2

Question:

I have a customer who needs copies of a key that appears to be the reverse of a Y2. (Ilco equivalent of Y1 is 999R but they do not make a 6-pin). Do you know of any other manufacturer that might make this 6-pin key blank, or would you expect it is something from overseas?

 

Answer:

Are you sure it’s a full size blank and not a O997ER? The full size 6-pin key blank would be the one that works U.S. Post Office Boxes. It is a violation of federal law to duplicate those. That is why you don’t see the key blanks anywhere. I know sometimes depending on the cuts, the 997E’s can look to be a Y1 sized key.
