Key for a RainMaster controller

Discussion in 'Irrigation' started by FIMCO-MEISTER, Jan 20, 2009.

  1. I had somebody contact me for a RainMaster key. I made a copy of mine but though it fit into the box it didn't turn. Are their multiple or newer keys for RainMasters? She was kind enough to send the key back with 5 dollars so I want to try and help her out. She is located in the Ventura, CA area.

    Thanks

    We need to know what model RM she has. Donna at the factory will help; prolly just send her one, n.c. 1.800.777.1477
    Suprised her "contractor" is no help. :hammerhead:
     
  3. Thanks Mike.. Not sure what the full story is but some local told her they had to get a certain amount and it was cost prohibitive.

    But their are multiple keys? My ARCO key chain had only one for the RM but it's pretty old as well.

    I know my DX clocks have a different key, but I bet it's one of the stock numbers she has. In the old days, the key # was printed on the lock.

    I'd bet: most of us have a ton of those lying around.
     
  7. Well this was the original note she sent me. Got me from my EBay pigtail site. Apparently her son lost it.

    Hi,
    I am in need of a key for a rainmaster box.
    Do you have any? I have tried to order one but the irrigation company has to order a minimum number and would rather not.
    Thank you,

    Just got an E-mail telling me all is well.

    We found one! An irrigation specialist in the area was able to find us one that works, We have already made a spare, just in case! Thanks for your help and kindness,
    Phyllis

    Boy, that site is sure paying off! You can use Phyllis as a reference.
     
  10. I made a copy of my ARCO key chain version. Didn't work but that key chain is 15 years old as well. It has about 25 keys of various brands. Matched the key in that RM I was hawking on EBay so I figured it fit all RainMasters.
