This topic interests me. In my experience the best locking mechanism for riser boxes is the budget lock. From a fire service perspective (and in the absence of a 'master key') the budget lock allows any fire station to respond to any premises and access the firefighting riser. It is not particularly resilient to supply the nearest two stations with keys. They may all be out at incidents. Despite not being with the fire service any longer, it still irks me that riser boxes are supplied with Yale type keys on nearly every occasion.

Is the Q key system adopted by the riser box manufacturers and installers? It could be that I am missing a trick and that all riser boxes are 'keyed alike'.

I'd be grateful to hear if anyone has further information on the matter.

Thank you
