What is the Master Locksmiths Access Key System (MLAK)?
The MLAK* is a master key that fits into specially designed locks allowing 24 hour access to accessible public toilets nationwide. You can purchase a key that opens all accessible toilets displaying the MLAK symbol.
The key can be purchased directly from a Master Locksmith in your local area or complete the order form available from the Master Locksmiths website. To find your local locksmith use the Find a Locksmith search on the Master Locksmiths website or call the Master Locksmiths on 03 9338 8822.
Eligibility is restricted to people who have a disability OR who have written authority from one of the following:
a disability organisation
a local council or community health centre
the owner or management of a building with an accessible toilet on site.
Where can you find an MLAK toilet?
To find a toilet fitted with the MLAK key go to the National Public Toilet Map enter a location, address or postcode into the search and the results will show if a toilet is fitted with the key.
Thinking about installing an MLAK at your organisation?
The Master Locksmiths Association has put together a flyer which provides information about what is required to install a lock in your facility. For further information refer to the flyer or contact the association.
