Post by tazmantic »

Hi, just wondered what the chances are of getting keys for said locks........ I don't have any keys, but the locks do have numbers on them. Local locksmith just gave me a funny look :D

These are about the only ones my locksmith baulked at. He said he could do them, if I could find the blanks. I failed - but this was pre-internet days. Haven't tried since. If anyone can source them, I'd like to know too.

A good old fashioned locksmith can make keys for old locks, it costs and I don't know about this make but worth asking.

I have also tried and failed on this front. Some people replace with other types of locks adjusted to fit.

I did manage to get a Yale one that fitted a few years back, but there is someone on ebay selling EVVA locks that look the right diameter and size. I have bought one and he has others. I got mine for less than a fiver, but I know he is after more if approached.
I know they would be a lot more from a trader/locksmith.

I will let you know the fit when it turns ups.

My locksmith, in Willenhall, the industrial capital of British key and lock-making, is about as old fashioned as they come. Maybe we should be making enquiries in Germany though.

My local locksmith got blank keys for mine and managed to get them both working - wasn't cheap though - cost me £58 all in for 2 keys
Let me know if you want his contact details..

Hi Snorky,
Any chance you could find out the key blank code? I don't know if it's on the keys.
This company supplies a range of Zeiss Ikon key blanks: keytrader.co.uk.

Made contact with a company called Davenport Burgess the other day and have got them to supply a full set of blanks from their catalogue which are applicable to the Zeiss Ikon & CES locks used in the German Wall Machines. Hopefully when they arrive I can identify the correct blanks for the numerous keyless locks I have. The various markings on my Zeiss locks are K2, K5, K50, and K53. I'll publish the info as soon as the keys arrive. I too have had little success in getting locksmiths to order the correct blanks for my locks so it'll be ideal to fit the actual blanks to the locks in question. It would seem that different manufacturers have their own individual blank codes as the Davenport numbers bear no resemblance whatsoever to the codes from the Keytrader list as quoted by pennymachines. !PUZZLED!
