Hi John. Is it the siba reversing dynastart switch? I got some done by a pal last year who sad to say have lost contact with but I can put you onto a guy in America who has blanks [not siba but an alternative]he sent me some and they were very cheap. You would still have to find someone to cut them.

www.messerschmitt.nl

In parts and then electrical. Not bought from them myself but appears to be legit!

I had a massive problem finding a blank to fit my SIBA unit. It seems its like the worlds more obscure key or something. I wanted a spare in-case i lost the original.

Any locksmith can take apart your lock and make a key to fit to it in like an hour, but finding the blank in the first place is an issue.

In the end, after much much hassle, we finally found a blank thats not exactly the same pattern, but fits. Its marked HD IF6.

Once you know what blank fits, its just a simple 10 or 15 pound job for a locksmith to make it fit the lock.
