    I think I need to order some test keys for our fire alarm call points. These are from a company called Protec. The test key seems to fit in the small slot on the bottom, but we don't have any. Does anyone know where I can buy a suitable key please?

    (I've emailed the supplier, but I haven't had a reply yet so I may need a plan B - also if it's a generic item, might be cheaper bought from amazon/ebay etc.)

    Thank you. IMG-0629.JPG IMG-0627.JPG IMG-0629.JPG IMG-0627.JPG

    I would probably say they are the old KAC style unit ….keys are £3.50 for 5 on ebay A2261911-AAA6-4279-8D2C-C51CBC294ADB.png

    Ahhh thank you. Nice. If I don’t hear back from the supplier in a couple of days I’ll splash out and buy a pack of 5

    Protec's call points are their own design (I did the PCB inside them) but theirs is the 3000 range and has curved edges, it may be that you only have protec glass in that call point.

    Yes it does look like the KAC key will work with it so maybe ebay is the place to get some.

    You could always try ringing Protec up themselves and ask if they can let you have some, I'm sure they have thousands to hand. :)
