Q. What does “Keyed Alike” mean?
A. “Keyed Alike” is a term used by many industries to indicate that multiple locks can be opened or accessed with the same mechanical key. Keying locks alike is done for convenience.
When locks are keyed alike, the owner only needs one mechanical key to open applicable locks. Using keyless handle features, like the remote fob or keypad does not require keying alike since keyless features can be customized to interact with locks as the customer sees fit. However, if a mechanical key is needed or used in place of the keyless features, keyed alike mechanical cylinders within the keyless locks offer the highest level of convenience.
Q. Are RVLock handles keyed alike?
All of RVLock Handles (keyless and mechanical) can be keyed alike.

Q. In what temperatures will RVLock handles function?
Like most product, our handles have an optimal temperature where products are designed to perform and function correctly. Our handles’ delta is between 32 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit. We have tested and found our handles to perform as low as 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Obviously at this temperature the battery output is going to be the concern. Humidity/temperature levels inside will begin to compete with humidity/temperature levels on the outside possibly causing moisture and/or ice where the two meet. RVLock customers using their trailer in temperatures below freezing are advised to use our handles as they would any other components on their trailer that are humidity/temperature sensitive.
