I thought I read that someone from the producerís table signals the host as to which key to begin with.

Of all the times both keys were won and both were used , 4 times . this season , last season , season 47 and season 38.

As it relates to whether the car key or the master key is revealed.  I don't know what's the absolute best.  For me, I don't think it ever mattered, and one could argue either way.  While the other prizes in Master Key are much better overall than in Switcheroo, more people care about the car and not so much about everything else.  How would I know if the car key was chosen if the Master Key was used first?  That would be on a curious level to see if both were chosen.  Whereas, if someone wins the car, they could simply speed through the process of learning what the other key produced (be it the first prize, second prize, neither or both).

Meanwhile, I am on record of not being a huge fan of "free stuff" (ex. Pay The Rent, 10 Chances, though the latter isn't a big deal).  Outside of going on and losing, you're sorta given $3,000 to walk away without continuing.  That being said, I hope I never see that setup like the one for the Apple Pie ever again.  That would've been okay later on in the game, but that was not cool for the first prize.  Especially here.  Completely agree in terms of the tough nature of it.  Tough it helps to give contestants little-to-no room for error.  OTOH, if someone gets lucky, it might backfire if a player makes a run for $6,000 & possibly $12,000

Counterpoint:
The keys actually "do" something?  I always assumed the locks were controlled by the producers since they know which keys were picked.

The keys absolutely do something.  They have magnets on them that correspond to magnetic positions within the three locks.  Which of the three spots on a key are magnetized determines which lock(s) it opens.
