Most locks are easily identified by the name brand printed on the face of the lock. Those that lack identification or exist as clones under a different brand name can be identified by close study of the keyway. Check the KW1 and SC1 first for entry locks, as it's usually one of those two.

Yeah I agree that good knowledge of key-way is very helpful for identifying the locks

The lock code will be stamped on the face of the lock core or key. Typically the lock code is alphanumeric, but it could consist of numbers only. Some lock codes will have a prefix and some will have a suffix attached to the numbers.
