Inherited (empty) glass curio cabinet, key hidden by relatives, bought skeleton keys on Amazon, found one that “fit” (unsure of forced) and was able to turn, but now cannot get it to turn and come out. : Locksmith


Oh, I know. It’s not my piece. Keys from Amazon were already here when I arrived. And because of the construction of this one, recovering from a back injury, and knowing how we would have to transport it, it just makes me nervous it will break in my hands.

Was pretty upset she had jammed a key in a lock I had already suggested was probably broken.

I’ll have her make an appointment to a locksmith. Thanks.

Special tool for Anderson Hickey file cabinet lock?


Special tool for Anderson Hickey file cabinet lock?

I've got a broken filing cabinet lock I need to remove, but it looks like there is a special tool required (see the "bolt" highlighted in the photo). Any idea what tool is required?

Lever lock (“skeleton key”) for a 7/8″ cabinet hole? : Locksmith


I’m curious if anyone knows of a ole-tyme style lock that can be swapped in place of something like a Prime-Line U 9947? This is more about style than security, so even a cigar-box style lock would work. Everything I’ve found requires mortising or a larger diameter hole and I’m dealing with a relatively small amount of wood/space in the cabinet I’m trying to repair.
