Cant get basement key made

I am trying to make a duplicate key for my basement doors. I have had ACE Hardware try 3 times and Wal-Mart try once and none of them worked. Is there something special about them? Has anyone had luck getting a dup made?

Tri Mark keys (If those are Tri-Mark locks) are kind of .. Different.

I have found one hardware store that has them, Gilroy's DO-IT, in Davison MI. And they do not always have the blanks in stock,, And one locksmith on Saraha in Las Vegas west of the strip (Alas it has been too long).. Even RV dealers with key machines often do not have the blanks.

I would try a real locksmith.. Not a hardware, auto or department store but a real locksmith, one who does locks for a living and little else.

If it is trimark, they show an ebay store on their website. Here is the link and they have a phone number at the bottom of the ad. Try giving them a call and see what you think. TriMark Locks Handle Latch RV Motorhome Entrance Baggage Specific Key Code | eBay

I went to local RV dealer and asked parts manager where he had keys made. He directed me to a local locksmith who stocked loads of RV blanks based on his work with the dealer.

Last week I had a key made for a hitch lock at a real locksmith. They didn't have the blank so took one that was close and shaved the back down. It works fine.

I bought spare basement keys from a locksmith. He had to take out a book to look them up and special order the blanks.

I found two places where you can order them for a resonable price.
You need to know the number that is written at the top of the key.. (which takes some really strong glass's)

If you loose your key just go to the guy next door and borrow his key. I have used mine I can't count the time while helping fellow RVers and their eyes get wide. There are a lot of the same keys.

I ended up going to a local locksmith and getting ONE for $5.00. You just have to be sure the locksmith does Tri Mark keys before you head over there. One issue down.... many to go.
