    Default Key for Presto case

    No need to repeat all the comments from the recent hiscox case thread. No, I will never use the key but just bought a Presto case and would like to find a key for the lock, just to have it, not use it!! Any clue as to where I could locate one. Thanks

    Sounds like any key will do.

    It is in a small ziplock bag in the case pocket, just to have it!!

    No clue about that but when I get near a locksmith I can see if I can get a few copies made

    Question Re: Key for Presto case

    Thanks..

    I'm guessing. of my 3, Pegasus in Scotland, is still selling cases .. IDK if he still buys the same latches ..
    each case uses 6 .. only 1 has a locking potential, or needs only 1.
