Visual key control (VKC) is when the key symbol is stamped on the face of the key.  This makes identification fast and convenient. The disadvantage is that stolen or lost keys can be easily matched to the locks they operate.  Keys stamped with visual key control will have the keyset stamped on the face.  

Visual key control (VKC) is furnished as standard for Everest and Primus key systems and is available as an option for Classic keyways.  Visual Key Control (VKC) can be specified with a 50-217 designation.  Visual key control (VKC) can be removed from Everest and Primus keys upon request.  

Other symbols can be stamped on a key.  Key stamping other than the name of the key is considered a non-standard code and is designated with 50-003.  VKC and Non standard code designations can be up to 6 characters long and must only be letters and numbers.
