Mechanical key locks only?

Would you propose this to be used for other side or remotely opened locks, number keypad-padlock and electronic locks as well? (you can choose to document this tag in a wiki article if it is in use only) Related tags in use: amenity=locker (Proposed_features/Locker), amenity=luggage_locker (Proposed features/Luggage locker), authentication:*=* (in minor use for BEV charging station); may be confused with lock=* for waterway=*. -- Kovposch (talk) 04:34, 26 March 2020 (UTC)

Yes! I use the word lock and key broadly, so any kind of "lock" (something that you need to have a physical device or know a secret to open). The "key" could be a PIN code not just a traditional metal key. This is different to a luggage locker and completely unrelated to lock=* for waterway=*. I'm looking for feedback to ensure we document this tag well, so think the proposal is the way to go. Thanks for you feedback. -- Aharvey (talk) 04:42, 26 March 2020 (UTC)
Oh, I only mention them as a comparison, not that they are directly related. locked=* sounds similar to lock=*. -- Kovposch (talk) 05:35, 26 March 2020 (UTC)

Toilets for the Disabled

In the UK, many public toilets for the disabled have locks to prevent abuse. They are operated by a common key formerly known as a RADAR key. wikipedia:Disability_Rights_UK#National_Key_Scheme

Where public toilets are micromapped down to the level of individual cubicles (or at least to sub-blocks of male, female and disabled) this would apply to many disabled toilets in the UK. --Brian de Ford (talk) 11:53, 26 March 2020 (UTC)

In Australia we have an MLAK key for that. I agree that would also be locked=yes but I think we should have a way to further specify which key you need, MLAK, RADAR, etc. I think that goes beyond this proposal though. -- Aharvey (talk) 07:45, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
