My school doesn't use that exact bay but each class be it mornings, afternoons or evenings have there own drive per student. I need the key cause normally each class has only one and people like to loose them, thus it would be better to have my own.

if you have the key...
you could duplicate it...but if you dont have the original key...please do not try to make something nasty...
the key will have the combination...so you need to find that combination...

There was someone on The U of M Campus that was able to break into locks like that using the cylinder casing of a cheap Bic ball point pen. Soooo, if you really wanted to get into it, I'm sure you could google around and find a way to use that trick. I would recommend getting permission from the teacher before getting your own key or using the ballpoint pen trick though.

Permission and all that isn't an issue I am just wondering what type of key that is called. Nobody that I have talked to know thus why I am asking here not wanting to create a makeshift ballpoint one.

Hahaha the makeshift ballpoint one probably wont last long. Also I believe they are just called cylinder Keys. You may need to go to a lock smith to get a copy made.


Correction on my part it's called a tubular key.
