The National Key Scheme (NKS), sometimes known as the RADAR Scheme, was developed because some public toilets designed for disabled people had to be locked to prevent damage and misuse. This has been countered by their being locked separately from other toilets. The NKS aims to provide disabled key holders with independent access to the toilets provided for them and increase the likelihood of the facilities being in a useable state.

A spare RADAR key can be borrowed from the Kandy Shop on Criffel Street (opposite the public toilets).

Official Radar keys can be bought from the Disability Rights UK shop.
