I Notice You Have Many Different Types Of Keys Now Which Would Be The Best To Buy? I Really Don't Understand The Difference Between The Different Types If Someone Could Explain That Would Be Very Helpful.

Well, which type of lock do you wish to bump. Is it a kwickset door lock, or a master padlock. Check out what type of lock you would like to test bumping on and then buy that key type.

the key you need to bump a particular lock must fit in the keyway of THAT particular lock. Look at some of your keys. If you look at it end-wise, from the end that you insert into the lock, you'll see kind of like an "S" or "F" shape. That shape must fit into the lock. If the keyway is shaped like an "S", but the keyblank you use has the "F" shape, it won't even fit into the keyway. Different manufacturers use different shapes.

make sense?

You need to first check the type of lock you need to bump. As stated above according to you requirement you need to choose the particular relevant key.
