Re: The Key


Here Spike, I know you wanted a picture of my key, but I have to say my key is a 611R. I didn't know that they made those kind, just the 610, 611, 612, and 612A. But here you go.

Re: The Key


It’s a good key and a good picture. However, I can’t use it in the catalogue because it doesn’t substantiate our case. I need pictures that verify our information specifically about 612A’s.

Re: The Key


Just finished watching the series on DVD, and being a locksmith, I INSTANTLY recognized the blade of the key as a Schlage Wafer Key, despite the non-matching head. The head of the key is indeed welded on to the blade of a different kind of key. The blade matches the knob locks at the Motel, which were Schlage wafer locks. The 1307W wafer key blank does not have a very interesting head. This is probably why they made that "hybrid" key--- the Niessen key head is a LOT more old timey looking. The Schlage wafer key head? Those old wafer locks are so ridiculously durable there are probably THOUSANDS of people with a 1307W key in their pockets still. VERY boring key.

Google "Schlage 1307W" or "Schlage SC22" to find pics of the key blank the blade was taken from.

Re: The Key


How Many Keys were made?! Did anybody Realize that Chris's key and the Inventory key are different? Hard to believe that they found TWO 612A's.... Unless they were already there for prop use. Who knows...

Re: The Key


How do you know they are different? The stain is a little different, but that may have happened later.

Re: The Key


By the gold in the letters and Sun on the Fob. Also I think the key shown at the VERY end is different, because most of the sun still has gold in it. Haven't checked the key that they show in the opening credits yet though.

Re: The Key


Mr Liver, Do you still have that 611R key ?

I would very much like to use it or buy it.
