Hello,  Well I've been just about everywhere in my area trying to find a replacement key for my Shad Top Case.  The biggest locksmith shops, the place that sold me the case and other Shad Dealers with no luck.  Does anyone know where you can get blanks for Shad Cases?  The key looks very similar to the Givi key.  Thanks,  Norm

I would try to get Shad to give you the key blank code.  Then use the web and phone to find that blank so you can have one made.   Photos[/url]

Maybe I can help.  Can you send me a photo of your key?  It would have to be both sides, and not blurry.  Also, if there is anything stamped on the key, that would help.    I'll see if I can get to my local dealer and borrow a key from him and see if I can locate the proper keyblank too.

Hello,  Thanks for the help Locksmith but I've about given up trying to find a key.  No response from Shad at all, very poor customer service.  Murph's was no help either.  I'd think twice now about buying another case from them, beware!  Sent pic's to a web site that claimed they had all the blanks you needed but again no response.  I looked at the lockset itself.  It looks pretty simple to remove and replace.  Has anyone replaced a lockset?  If so do you have a part number or supplier?  Thanks,  Norm

Unfortunately most of these locks are chinese.  They don't follow any kind of standards that we know of.  Unless you are handy with doing modifications, you aren't going to find anything suitable.  Certainley nothing that will drop right in.

Thanks Locksmith.  I build particle accelerators for a living so I'm pretty good at getting things to fit.  I'm thinking I may need to open the hole that the lockset passes through in the top trunk.  The actual latch bolts to the rear of the lockset and is locked in place by the square on the end of the shaft.  That latch may need to have it's hole modified also.  The over all design of the lockset looks similar to what I've seen.  I'm going to take it out and head back to my Locksmith.  I'll let you know how I make out.  Later,  Norm

Spare keys cannot be supplied by SHAD, nor can you have copies made at the local locksmith. Call SHAD USA 888.9.SHADUS or email info@shadusa.com to order a replacement cylinder. You will have a brand new cylinder with two keys.    Hope this helps!

Hello,  Well finally an answer.  Thank you.  But this did take way too long to get a response.  In the interim I did buy a common cylinder cam lock.  I used a Stocklocks which is a product of CompX, part number MFW1058-KD.  It worked with a little adjustment but now I have a spare key and peace of mind.  Thanks,  Norm
