Chest Lock NEW
by: Heather Stephanie

Sometimes locks are jammed because of rust or any other friction. Oil it and then try the keys. I am sure its the same problem I had with my grandmother's box. I found best essays on this blog about all topics related to different type of locks. Thanks

I do have the same issue and was wondering what to do about it as I do find it emotionally unable to break open the chest as it is an inherited antique piece. I would be glad if I can get a way around. I will send the photo of the chest. Q Spray

Most likely a broken ward in the lock
by: Webmaster

Is it a warded lock? Do you have a picture of the key or the lock? If it is warded (most likely), then perhaps it has broken off. In which case, try bending the end of a nail filer or related strong metal object, and sticking it in the lock and turning it. The bend will have to make the tip short enough to fit in the lock, but longer than the key since the key is not reaching the ward. But I can't say for certain without a picture of the lock or key.
