Posted 23 Mar 2015 at 21:25


Extremely quick question- how would Pete get hold of a radar key?

You can usually get these from a mobility shop or a charity shop such as Age UK. Failing that you can buy one on line

I applied for one many years ago, following my own trauma.
I googled radar key and went to the company.
In those days you had to tell them what your problem was.
They do charge for them but at least they are the right thing.
Please do not do what I did a couple of years ago.
Having mislaid the key and then finding it I thought it would be quicker to get another cut so I took it to Timpsons for a key cut. It looked the same but has NEVER fitted a radar door.
I didn't know you could get them from Age Concern or mobility shops so that info is welcome

Yes I orderd one from Age Concern online. No questions asked and cheap. It does help to ease access,

Mine came from my local council office, free.

You could also try the "Bladder and Bowel Foundation" they can supply you with Keys, Toilet cards and much more, my countenance nurse  pointed me in there direction as a useful recourse complementary to PCUK

PCUK also do a "toilet Urgent card" which is well worth getting.
