I did check with Startech and they used to offer replacement keys *with*
replacement door locks only.   It seems they're out of replacements.

For whatever reason, the front and back doors use a double-sided key
that's quite different from the side panels, which use what look to be
commodity cam locks.

Oh well, not that I want to lock this thing, but the side panels use the
cam locks as part of the retention mechanism.   At least those can be
easily and cheaply replaced.
