There's an old saying that locks are only for keeping the honest guys out. As an aside on the few variations out there, the 8N I inherited from my Dad in the mid-90's had a key switch that had been there for years, the key also fit my Grumman Tiger aircraft, and got me thinking. So I tried it in several other planes one day (a bunch of us were at the airport togetehr), nearly everyone had a key that fit another plane, and some fit several.

Another old saying is: "For every key you have it's another worry in your life."

I have a "FORD" script key for my 9N. Same key works in most Cessna door locks. For stealing, just remove the gnd. wire from one mag. Always top off the tanks upon return to the same chocks, though. :)

I prefer both magnetos working! :) One of my partners lost a mag one day on a trip to the outer banks. He had his wife and daughter with him, over water; forgot his emergency checklist and it was running rough, he didn't isolate it and fly on one mag. Almost put down on the shore, but made it to the airport. When I talked with him, he said he'd never fly it again, and that there was a boat mechanic trying to time the roughness out of it. I got a friend to fly me there and I flew it back on one mag before the boat mechanic ruined the engine. But I still prefer two. Airplanes are easier to steal than cars: no steering/key interlocks.
