Hi I folded up a piece of paper several times to make it into a small rectanguler shape and inserted into the slot for the key and it worked.
The replacement key doesn't need to be magnet just small enough to fit the shap of the slot is fine.Mine was a Weslo cadence 1000 (bought in 2002)

Hello there. Yes you actually can use a magnet. (thats all the safety key is) It will need to be strong enough to make the switch inside the console activate. I use one from a telescoping magnet used for picking up small screws (available at the big box stores) when I dont have one on service calls.
Just to let you know a refrigerator magnet will not be strong enough!
Good Luck! Tim

SOURCE: I lost my safety key
I just found out I had lost my key too. I have a Merit 710T. I called the company and they directed me to their website.
On the page there is a link to a chart which will tell you what key is right for your model. They are cheap, only @ $13. Not sure about S&H though. I've also heard that if the key is a magnet you MIGHT be able to use another magnet to complete the circuit. I'm going to try this when I get home to tide me over till I get my next check and order a new key.
