Are the locks we use in europe the same so that if I order a set of 11 bumpkeys from you guys, most of the keys do work? Cause I have no idea weither we have different locks and if those bump keys will work.

It depends largely on your specific location in Europe. But, by and large, the answer is that the majority of the keyways sold at bumpkey.us are found overseas.

The Yale Y1 is definitely the most likely to be found in Europe, specifically in Britain. The Master M1 is rather common on padlocks worldwide, but it is much less commonly found in Europe in comparison to the USA and Canada.

My mailbox in Germany used an NA-12, but I feel as though this was an exception from the rule.

So the quick synopsis: Y1 and M1 are probably worthy investments, but aside from that I wouldn't guess you'd find many others.
