How it started...

Dave began his Locksmithing career in 1998. He has worked across all facets of the trade and in 2013 he opened 'Port Stephens Locksmiths' where he specialised in Commercial projects, Access control and New build / Renovation hardware. 

After purchasing their first Caravan, the first thing Dave did was replace the generic caravan locks to make 1 key work all locks and hatches, because he knew all those keys were going to do his head in.... plus being a locksmith he knew it wasn't secure as it was.

During Daves 20+ years of Locksmithing and in their travels talking to other Caravan owners he knew people were craving a convenient and secure option for caravans and so The 1Key Company came into fruition.

This venture has been the perfect marriage of Dave's skills as a Locksmith and his passion for travel and the outdoors. Along with Jamie's skills in business operations they have been exploding into the Caravan scene since 2022.

In 2023 Dave sold Port Stephens Locksmiths to focus on 1 Key Caravan to answer the demand for more locks to suit more Caravans.

When Dave is not working on new product solutions, assembling your kits or talking to you at shows, he is caravanning or boating with his wife Jamie on the hunt for fish, waves and good coffee. 

We are proud to be an Australian owned and operated business.


Two years into the 1Key Journey the uptake and interest has been beyond the expectations. The 1Key Company now have a broad Caravan dealer, Caravan manufacturer and Caravan installer database across Australia and New Zealand. 

The 1Key System is the best caravan security device on the market where many customers fall into two buckets - either replacing caravan locks and caravan keys to upgrade their caravan security and convenience (which is easily done via DIY video) OR are requesting it with their dealers for new caravans prior to handover.

In the range now 1KeyCaravan replace compression locks, Thetford hatch locks, Coast water fillers, Finch picnic table locks, MW toolbox locks, McNaughton drop T locks, Camec door, Aussie Traveller door, Padlocks, T handles, Shower locks, Wingknobs, Lockable PVC end caps... with MORE in the pipeline.

How it's going...


All these caravan locks and caravan accessories can now be coded to the same 1Key with the combinations increasing to 2000 rather than the generic version offered on caravans. 

In 2024 The 1Key Company announced their exclusive distributorship of the TALON range - this is a game changer to the Caravan industry where you can now key alike your Caravan hitch locks (D035 and D045 Hitch Pins and locks). Using a 'pink key'.

Wow where do I start.. Jamie your communication and service are AMAZING! Thanks for all the effort and going the extra mile on delivery for us while we travel, absolutely meant the world.

I will be highly recommending you and your product which is also of high quality to everyone.


Purchased new locks including black compression locks for my new caravan. Emailed off some pictures and received a quote same day. Kit arrived as I decided to to give installation a go myself.

After watching an installation video the process was straight forward and easy to do in about 35 minutes. Am so happy to be getting rid of the key ring full of keys and improving the look with the black compression locks.

If you own a van, do yourself a favour and simplify your travel with locks from 1 Key Caravan.


This is amazing! We cant thank you enough. This product is a game changer for us and all caravan owners! Make the switch to 1 Key today, you'll love it!


Have now changed all the locks over including the door a can say this was the best decision made for our van.


Have fitted your 1 key system and stoked to my back teeth. Love it. 

Still keen for toolbox and water fillers.


We have just been away with our van after fitting the one key. 
Our whole family couldn’t believe how good it was having 1 Key to walk around the van and do a final lock up. I have 1 Key on my car key and that’s all I need. 

Absolutely brilliant! Great product.

Greg Jarrat- Wonderland caravan

We have recently got home from being away for a few weeks in our van. 

We just wanted to let you both know how impressed with the new locks we are. Made life so much easier only having one key.

Thanks again and all the best.


Finally picked our caravan on Friday. A big shout out for the quality of the locks and how easy they were to fit. 

Locks now fitted and added your sticker to the entrance door, normally I don't like to advertise but happy to in this instance. 

All I need now (besides padlocks) is compression locks for the storage bin.


Can't speak highly enough of the fantastic service. We sent an email requesting a quote overnight, response, paid and item posted the next day with tracking.

Arrived today (7 day turnaround), easy DIY fitting, all done in 20 minutes. Thank you so much, what a great Aussie small business, be sure to support them.
