U-Turn vending machines key and locks

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

 

I,m new to this vending business. I have obtain a U-turn machine without a key, I have been told I can drill out key and replace it, but before I do that is there a way to match a key to this machine, if there is a way how? If not is threr anyone who is selling a lock and key for a U-turn machine.

 

Thanks

Check the lock to see if there's a number. I have seen a few with numbers listed, but it really depends on who had the machine first and if they kept the stock locks or not. If they did, you can probably find a key from someone around here, eBay, or from uTurn, though I imagine it'll cost you a pretty penny to get one from them. It might be cheaper than having to replace the whole lock assembly after drilling it out though- good luck on the hunt sir!

The only way to know what key you need is if it's the older ones from about 20 years ago. They had the number stamped on the lock. Otherwise you have to drill it or have it picked baby a locksmith. Also, I don't know anyone that has blanks to have a key made. I've had Uturn's for a long time.

You have tho know the number to order the right key. There's about 38 different ones in the new version, 30 in the old.

I can sell you a lock and key for 10, no shipping if you need it.

Sorry, free shipping

Are these the keys made by Service Central INC? I'm looking for key assemblies that match the key I have. Do you think UTurn would have those? Also, how do you order parts from Uturn? Is there a hidden parts depot? If you go to their website, you cannot find links to it or contact info anywhere other than the main number that wants to sell you franchises or new machines.

I was able to get a catalog by emailing, but like Rodney said, you'll need to pick up the phone to order.

Which email works for them? The uturn@vendtechinternational.com address bounces back as a failed email.
