What is a Keyport Blade?

A Keyport Blade is a Keyport compatible key that features a one-size-fits-all head and seamlessly takes the place of a traditional key. It includes the following parts:

• Skull – Patent pending head of the Keyport Blade

• Blade or Shank – Portion of the key which slides into the keyway of the lock and distinguishes between different keys

• Teeth or Bitting - Part of the key that actually engages the tumblers to activate the lock. Bittings are often represented as a code that instructs how a key is to be cut by a locksmith.

• Blade Blank – Keyport Blade that has not been cut to a specific bitting
