    Default Folger Adam Key Information

    I absolutely realize this is a long shot, but, Iíve worked in Corrections for 18 years and after my divorce, i started collecting Jail keys and locks. I have around 20 locks, and 150 keys. I know what facility most of the keys and locks came from and try to get historical items from the facility as well, especially if they are closed, many are. My question is, is there anyway to get any information off the Key Codes (Folger Adam) if nothing else identify the state the key is from?

    Default Folger Adam Key Information

    Welcome and I do know that Folger Adam have made so many differ size of key. I think used to have catalog from Folger Adam but some where a long the line may have lost it. I don't think you going to find any key code from Folger Adam because these key are Restricted from anyone that try to get it. But who know maybe someone may give you some information. I do know there are some place can buy it but you need to prove to be locksmith of who order these key for what. If i can find the web-site of where to buy will post it. Good luck and would be nice if you can post some of your collect of lock and key.....Timothy.....

    Key records work in the other direction, if you know the facility then various keys used in it and how they are marked can be looked up. The 1983 flood experienced by Folger Adam destroyed all of their key records information.

    IIRC, 1983 was the second time all their key records were destroyed in a flood, happened once before in the 30's or 40's. They weren't quick learners.
