I believe the 40-186 takes the KW-1 key way used by Kwikset locks.
A quick learner from Modesto Ca says:
The two locksmiths I've tried for this say it is close, but just enough off that they don't have keys to fit the lock.

I actually just recently came across the same problem with this key lock. I went to two hardware stores; one key they used with the KW-1 Kwik set key way and was just a little too thick. The other hardware store used a KW-1 key way made by "HY-KO". That seemed to fit fine. Some key blanks run a little thicker than others, but it depends on where you go. Hopefully this information helps!
