old (1950's?) American Lock Co. (of Chicago) Brass Pad Lock

by Steve
(Boston)

I lost the key to my antique lockbox... it has my nicest watch inside. The key had a symetrical shape, and I can feeel 4 teeth on each side when I go in with my pick. I wish I could see what the inside of this lock looks like - although my tequnique is more important. I have 3 picks that are a set of pick and hooks ground flat and a few other picks that fit and seem to push the teeth and hold. I really don't know what I'm doing. Any tips?

Brass pad locks are always a headache when the key is lost. Once lost is lost forever. We should try breaking it up if at all we store some kind of valuables in that. Better to get a research writer to try to open it.

The old 1950’s locks are the toughest ones but if you know the theory, it will be easy. There is a guy near me who knows how to open these old locks. I will ask him and it will be nice if you could post the pictures.dementia care specialists
