And (only a little less importantly), because most riding mower keys are universal, there are more places than the dealership to find a replacement key. And if you're lucky, you won't have to wait for it to be shipped. But until you get one, you won't be able to mow your lawn. To save yourself the lost mowing time next time, order two keys just in case one gets lost again and give it to your neighbor.
