    as the title. Tried cheap ones and a bacho multi type one wich is now broken.

    They always break or don’t fit correctly.

    It’s the triangular ones mostly that I see.

    Yeh do that sometimes, doesn’t always work if it is a little rounded.

    A triangle socket adaptor would be good if they existed

    You get them with new lampposts. Buy a new one and get the key for free. ;)


    Or perhaps you can order one from a lamppost manufacturer.

    I think they are the same size as a London Underground J Key used by drivers and staff to access trains. I have one somewhere from my days at LUL and they are well made.
