Most of mine are num 700 or 755 locks - so common they are silly, but I think I still have two machines with original keys and two with no lock... they are the most recent acquisitions and are just waiting for my next parts order. Keep all the keys neatly lined up on a window sill in the gameroom.

Thumb locks on all my games, it's just much easier. Toss the original keys and locks in the coin box and replace whenever I sell a pin.

Quoted from pezpunk:

mine are all hanging from the coin door lock, and the backbox keys are hanging inside the coin door. it's not like there's money inside, and anyone playing them is already my friend or relative. what would be the point of securing them?

When your wife runs a day home and the 4 yr old's think its funny to hide the keys. ( I've had to replace several lock's due to this ) I keep all mine in a box with labeled tags or plastics from the game.

Wow! Appreciate the comments on storage and alternative lock ideas!
Thumb lock seem great, I just have to lose friends with curious little ones roaming about.

Who needs keys and a lock?

Backbox keys in the coin door... always. Setup pin keys in a bowl in a nearby hutch. Non setup game keys are in my big ball of keys.

Wouldn't mind keying all alike sometime but kinda lazy. I really like the lock that shipped with WOZ as it operates super smooth and has an internal catch that holds it locked in the coin door with less worry about the door swinging open on me in the middle of the game.

Maybe sometime I'll look up the lock brand and get a bunch of thosr keyed alike... but then I remember... lazy.

Now if only the lock down bar worked worth a shit. I screwed with mine for hours, multiple times and it still doesn't work. I cant be bothered anymore...

I think keyless is a nice idea. I should look into this.

My coin door keys go on magnetic hooks hidden behind the left front legs. Handy but unobtrusive.

Backbox ones go on the hooks by the coin mechs inside the doors where they belong.

My boys, with the help of my wife, made this for me last fathers day

Quoted from Electrocute:

Coin door keys are left in the coin door. Backbox keys are left inside coin door.

Quoted from Magic_Mike:

All of my games have their keys with their corresponding key fob, in the coin door at all times.

I have an owner's manual, flyer, and two key fobs for every game I own. One key with fob is displayed in the coin door and the spares keys with their respective fobs are in a small box inside one of my boxes of spare parts. Of course, I hardly ever have any visitors so I don't need to worry about keys getting lost or broken.

I just keep them here in my bucket.

Any idea where to go to purchase machine specific key fobs? I can't seem to find a decent Medieval Madness key fob.

There was a guy doing fobs on KLOV

but he seems to be pausing the business.

Had a guy on KLOV make this for me a few years back.

Keyless is so boring.... I heart keychains!
