    Just recently picked up a new machine and hammered up two more nails for the keys to it and wondered what other Pinsiders do with their keys. For me I've got them all lined up and the keys on the right are for the backboxes and the left are for the coin doors, makes it nice and easy if I ever need a key. Also put all my keys on the plastic key fobs.

    Are you as anal as me with how you keep track of your keys? Do you just throw them all in a bowl, just leave them in the machine, put them on the plastic fobs, have a cool thing you've built to hold all your keys or do you have one giant key ring that's the ring to rule them all?

    Quoted from pinwiztom:

    My pinball key situation is a total cluster-F**K,
    with so many pins stored all over the place
    some keys are in the games,
    either the coin door or for the back door on EMs or BG head for SS games,
    or hanging inside the CAB/coin box area.
    I also have dozens and dozens of keys on various key rings or big zip lock bags or tins,
    most of them not marked as to what game they go to,
    so it will be a nightmare to find that correct key when i finally pull out various games from storage.
    But I know i have that dang key somewhere.

    With 318 machines I'd say it would be pretty easy to misplace a machine or two, let alone some keys to them! I can see how things might go when you're looking for a set of keys "Now where on Earth did I put those keys for AFM...no better yet, where on Earth did I put that AFM?"
