Hatch Board Barrel Lock Key
Many have asked about the availability of a replacement key
for their hatch locks. Beneteau DID offer the blank at $18 or
so if you want to duplicate the original square key, though
current availability is unknown. On the other hand, you can
also go to a locksmith and get a key made from the AP5 blank.
It's probably a good idea to have a backup for obvious reasons.
While it's not the classic looking square key, it works - nice
to know we have this option. NOTE: Bring your lock and spare
key along with you as the AP5 blank is not always a perfect
match. Also, for best results, a real Locksmith is preferable
to Lowe's/Home Depot etc.
UPDATE 6/07: Further sleuthing
points to an even more close copy Stateside with the ilco
DM21 blank. The original key was actually a CAS-CISMA
blank. Silca makes a similar blank, called either a CIS1
or a CIS3.
Boudewijn Neijens made a copy of his original key in EU using
a DOM 2C blank, part number 24.03.24 002 0. And ilco DOES have
a similar blank with the DM21. The only difference with the
ilco blank is I believe it's not as heavy a key (and is silver).
