Home Depot does not have a selection of keys.  They have some car keys, 
some padlock keys (that MIGHT match), and TWO house keys (Schlage SC1 and 
Kwikset KW1, although they have more than a hundred different novelty 
heads on those)  They are no good, if you want the third, fourth, or fifth 
most common housekey!

Take a key to a locksmith and get a copy, to peddle to one of those 
seeking that key.  Even if your locksmith is so curmudgeonly that he won't 
tell you anything, Note the numbers stamped on the blank.  It is trivially 
easy to measure the depths of the cuts, and with the "depth and spacing" 
standards for that blank, you can guess them from the picture.

We had no difficulty on this list decoding the DEC XX2247 key.
