What different types of keys are there

History of Keys

The key has been around for thousands of years and it has evolved over time to become the essential household accessory.
Keys were once used to open doors and protect the contents of a house. They symbolized security and protection.
The first known keys date back to Mesopotamia and Egypt, where they were made of wood or bone. It was not until the Middle Ages that metal keys became more common.
The earliest known key was discovered in the ruins of the ancient city of Lachish, which is now located in modern-day Israel. It is estimated that keys first appeared around 3000 BC. They were often made from wood and stone, and were found in pairs with different shapes to match the locks they opened.
The first key with a modern design was created by Robert Barron back in 1778 for his home in England. He had patented the invention, which meant that he could make money off of it by licensing other businesses to produce and sell it on their own.
Keys were traditionally created by hand. It was a time-consuming process that required the key maker to painstakingly carve the teeth of the key by hand.
This task was so time-consuming and tedious, that it often took up to four hours for a skilled craftsman to make just one key.
The invention of the key machine in 1818 revolutionized this process and reduced production time from hours to minutes.

L-key & Wedge key

There are two main types of keys:
The first type is called a “wedge key”. Wedge keys are used to open locks that have a narrow space. The second type is called a “L-key”. L-keys are used to open locks that have a wider space.
Wedge keys come in different shapes and sizes, but they all have the same basic design. They have one end that is wider and has teeth on it. This end fits into the lock and pushes against the pins inside it. The other end of the wedge key is thinner, with grooves cut into it on one side. This end goes next to the lock’s bolt and helps push it out of its place so you can turn the lock and open it up.

Transponder Key

A transponder key is a type of key that uses an electronic signal to open and start the car. These types of keys are common in newer models of cars, as they are known to be more secure than traditional keys.
The transponder is a small device that emits radio waves. Radio waves are picked up by the receiver in the car, which then sends a signal to unlock and start the engine.
This type of key is also known as a remote, because it can be used from a distance.
The transponder is usually built into the key fob or remote control, so it needs to stay with you for it to work.
The transponder key is a type of lock that can be opened with a remote. These keys are sometimes called “remote car keys” or “keyless entry systems.”
This is a very new technology and it hasn’t yet been perfected. The major advantage of the keyless system is that it allows you to keep your key in your pocket and unlock your car with the push of a button on your key fob.

Flat Key

A flat key is a type of key that has the same width of the blade. Flat keys are typically used to operate a lock with a latch bolt instead of a knob or lever. They are designed to fit into the slot in the door jamb, and turn left-to-right to open locks.
A flat key has a rectangular head and has two rows of teeth on the front and one row on the back.

Corrugated Key

The corrugated key is a type of key that is used in locks. It has a metal piece that is inserted into the lock and it has an array of notches cut into it. The notches will correspond to the shape of the tumblers inside the lock, so when you put your key in, turn it, and push it forward, the pieces will pop up and release.

Tubular Key \ Barrel Key

A tubular key is a type of lock that uses a cylindrical key. It is often used for the lock on a bicycle or other small locks.
A tubular key is made up of five main components: the head, neck, ferrule, stem, and tail.
The head is the end of the key that is inserted into the keyway. The neck is the section of the key that extends from the head to the ferrule. The ferrule is a metal hoop
The type of key is the way the teeth are shaped or the number of teeth.
A round key has a circular head and has one row of teeth on both sides.
A spade key has a head shaped like a spade and has three rows of teeth on the front and one row on the back.
A mortise key has a rectangular slot on the end of the head and two to four rows of teeth on the front and one row on the back.
The spade key is used to turn a bolt or a lock and the mortise key is used to turn a mortise lock.

dimple key

Dimple is a keyboard that has been designed to make typing more accessible for people with motor disabilities. Instead of the typical QWERTY layout, Dimple features a single line which eliminates the need to move your hands up and down and left to right.
Dimple key is a sophisticated mobile-based authentication solution that uses NFC and Bluetooth to create a trusted link between the user’s smartphone and their device. This link provides two-factor authentication, with each factor providing a different level of security.

warded key and jagged key

A ward key is a type of lock that has been designed to resist tampering by burglars. This type of lock has a key that rotates to the side and has wards in the shape of a warding sign. A jagged key is a type of lock that uses “jagged” teeth to prevent people from picking or bumping it open. The teeth are angled at different heights and are not uniform, making it hard for someone to pick or bump the lock open.
A jagged key has a pattern on it that allows it to fit into a jagged hole in a door or drawer.
Jagged keys are keys that have notches (or jags) in them. They were used to help identify the key when you didn’t have a keyhole.
The jagged key is also used to identify the lock as it’s inserted into the lock. This is because a typical key has one straight edge, but a jagged key has two or more edges that will fit into the lock and turn it.
This type of key has a long history, being used by locksmiths and jailers for all sorts of tasks. It was used to unlock handcuffs and shackles, as well as locks on doors, gates or cages.

combination/mixed key

There are two opposite viewpoints on this issue. One is that a combination of various methods is the best way to protect data. The other view, which is just as valid, is that mixing different types of security keys does not provide any additional value and the one type of key may be more than enough for those who do not have a high-risk profile.
The primary difference between these two types of keys is in the way that they are generated. Mixed keys are generated by combining two or more different keys and combination keys are generated by combining two or more identical keys
A mixed-keyboard is a keyboard that contains both letters and numbers.
Mixed keys are often seen on calculators, cash registers, and a whole slew of other devices that require numbers to be input. A mixed key is a type of key that utilizes both the major and minor scales. This type of key is also referred to as a “modal” key.

spool key

Spool is a key that can be used to open locks without damaging them. It has been invented by a company called LockPickShop and is available for purchase on their website.
The spool key is a flat, circular, metal object that can be used to unlock some of the most difficult locks.
The spool key is a tool used to tighten the thread on a sewing machine. It is inserted into the hole in the top of the needle plate and then turned to tighten or loosen the thread.
Spools are also used for storing threads and other materials on a sewing machine. They come in different sizes and can be made from metal or plastic.

So what have we had so far?
