Contractors, electricians and other types of technicians who require the use of electric meter barrel lock keys should know that maintaining this type of delicate precision tool in top condition is well worth the time and effort. Because these keys differ from standard keys used in a typical lock and key configuration, they must be treated with greater care. While a standard key does not have any moving parts, an electric meter barrel lock key has several moving parts that must be protected. This is why this type of key typically has a protective cover that comes with it. Using this cover is imperative to ensuring that your gas meter barrel lock key or water meter barrel lock key does not become damaged in any way. In addition, it is important to store meter keys in the right place. When storing this type of tool it is best to store in a location where there is no moisture, humidity or dirt. Excessive amounts of any of these things can cause a meter key to malfunction or fail. Take the time to protect and care for your meter key in the right way and expect many years of dependable and reliable use from this unique and innovative tool.
