I have managed to lock & unlock successfully it with some other old but ill-fitting keys, so I’m guessing the lock mechanism itself is probably very simple. I’m looking for a replacement key that fits properly, but I don’t really know what I’m looking for. There’s a distinctive zig-zag shape – is there a specific name for this kind of key?
It’s a Lori Lock. When on a door, remove the 2 screws on the bolt plate (edge of the door) and the plate can be removed with the rest of the bolt staying in the door. To the sides of the bolt are 2 narrow holes, which reach all the way back to the 2 set screws visible in your third image. Loosen those with an Allen key and Bob’s your auntie.
If you touch the lining of the case behind each catch you will probably feel a hole in the case hidden under the lining. Inside that hole should be a small button or lever. Once that button is pressed or lever moved you should be able to move the dials to a new combination. Release the lever and the new combination will be locked in.
