ICLS offers the world's largest selection of various types of key retainer devices (KRDs), less cores. Some, such as BEST, Schlage, Sargent, Corbin Russwin, Medeco and Yale are pictured below. Even though ICLS has continued to provide these KRDs at below market prices, it is only because we can manufacture them completely within the USA with our own quality control measures and specialized marketing procedures.

KRDs are provided with installation instructions, fastening bolts and mounting template. KRDs do not come with the cores (figure-eight locking devices) that are inserted by the facilities locksmith in only seconds with the appropriate control key. Interchangeable cores in KRDs usually match the facility's existing keying system.

Key Retainer Devices (KRDs) are in the industry forefront as a proven way to prevent crime by providing visual authorized accountability. This means that as a Top Master Key is issued for legitimate purposes, the employee's  key is temporarily "retained" in the KRD. When they return and replace the Master Key, the employee's key is released and the Master Key is again locked into place. This procedure accentuates safety since accountability is required and Master Keys stay "on premises." Thus, potential crime and security vulnerability is lessened. KRDs are precision machined from solid aircraft aluminum bar stock, contain stainless steel throw pins for added strength and security, contain no mounting brackets (proven to be a security risk) as they are only mounted direct-to-surface and are manufactured 100% in the USA.

Many system administrators, institutional locksmiths and security professionals are unaware WHY the Key Retainer Device (KRD) has proven to be the number one most cost-effective device to support visual key control. Since the unfortunate revelations of 9-11, internal security and key control have become of paramount concern to those in positions of security authority. Do you know why this simple, yet important device is a vital arsenal in the 'key control' world? Below are the Top 12 Reasons why:

12 Top Reasons to Use Key Retainer Devices (KRDs)

1) Cost-effective method to keep master keys on premises

2) Reduces expensive building re-keys

3) Eliminates unauthorized master key duplication

4) Reduces theft from 'rogue' master keys

5) Effectively used by colleges, universities, public schools, hospitals and government facilities to support necessary key control policies

6) Eliminates key loss off premises

7) Allows visual key control of WHO has master keys out at any given time

8) Only ONE cylinder is re-keyed if a change key is lost

9) Stainless steel throw pins securely hold the top master key until the authorized change key is returned, and are only mounted 'direct-to-surface' for added security

10) Similar to a low-cost insurance policy for a facility

11) Made solely in the USA

12) Maintenance free

Two Cautions When Buying KRDs!

1) Make sure you are not purchasing older stock (not ever made or sold by us), that contains brass throw pins!!! One university found that with extra torque on the captive key, the brass throw pins broke off and the master key was free to be removed! This is the worst scenario for a KRD! We use ONLY stainless steel throw pins to assure your master key stays in place until the proper release key is used.

 

2) If the KRD-2 is mounted with a bracket in the back.....avoid it! Again, it has been proven that with minimal pressure, it can be broken off and the perpetrator now has your entire KRD-2, with keys! As a reminder, this is not something we ever made and is older stock (not ever made or sold by us), as all of our KRDs are mounted ONLY direct-to-surface.

 

ICLS is proud to sell only quality KRDs, as proven by our track record with the hundreds of colleges, universities, hospitals and government facilities using our products successfully for over a decade.

This device functions exactly the same as the standard KRD-2, but with a new twist! It allows the employee to insert their Release Key (often termed as Change Key, or lower level key) as usual which permits the Retained Key (often termed Top Master Key, Master Key, or other higher level key) to be accessed for the employee to do their approved duties. But when their duties are more restricted or requiring added notification to superiors, their Retained Key CANNOT be returned back to the KRD until the designated person is contacted and puts their special 'Reset Key' into the retainer, allowing the Retained Key to again be captured, and the employee's key (Release Key) to be released back to the employee. This has significant advantages over allowing an employee's 'free reign' for perhaps hours on end, with no accountability to superiors. While most employees are honest, diligent and above reproach, the KRD-2-KR unit is intended for applications where stricter guidance and notification is required.
