What does keyed alike #1, keyed alike #5 mean?

Key Alike:

Some items we offer for sell have an option that allows you to specify the keyed alike number of the ordered lock.
Keyed alike #1, would specify that all locks we ship you will be keyed alike to the #1 key number. This allows you to order a group of locks that work from the same key, and in this case key #1 would fit all the locks ordered. If each lock is supplied with 2 keys, and you order three locks, you will receive three locks, and six identical keys to work them all.

Keyed alike options come in a variety of styles offered by different manufacturers. Keyed alike codes like: CAT65, C413A, or ES201, or just a numerical number all represent keyed alike codes.

Specifying a keyed alike option will usually allow you to order more locks that use the same key at a later date.
