Getting keyed alike Kryptonite locks?

Kryptonite offers a keyed alike program for their New York, LS and Evolution Mini locks. I'm trying to make sense of my slew of locks and am thinking of trying to simplify by getting a set of keyed alike locks. Has anyone here done this? The benefit would be a single key for your keyring and no more multiples or trying to remember which set of keys to grab with which bike. This gets particularly important with more than one person having bikes in a family. The downside would of course be if you lost one key that would theoretically put all of your locks at risk and thereby your entire investment assuming the key was found and could be linked to your bikes.

Has anyone here ordered the Kryptonite keyed alike locks? I'm thinking that 2-3 LS locks would be sufficient for me.

Yes, a few years ago I called the Kryptonite company and ordered a set of several locks all keyed alike. It has been great to have everyone in the family be able to open up any lock with the same key. That way we can move bikes around in the garage, swap bikes if needed, etc. It's also great if you are going to park in a sketchy area and want to bring 2 U-locks. You can bring two locks and use the same key. I highly recommend having several locks all keyed alike.
