  2. Howdy Folks, Would anyone know of a source for this style Zadi Wafers, ( photos ) A locksmith over here is needing to rekey about 40 of these to all keyed alike, Even with shifting wafers around there is not enough to make it work out right even leaving some empty chambers, So he is looking for a source for the wafers, Thanking You In Advance Howard

  7. The locksmith in New York purchased one of these locks with keys on eBay and it arrived today, it is the same lock, key & code series, he will go through blanks and or modify some to see what can be made to work, since we can not it seems, acquire blanks or keys cut to code from across the pond so far, Pretty sure he will find or make something to work, Again Thank You for your help, it is much appreciated

    New FAP ?? key

    Thank You, Silca AX1RP appears to be correct, but we are having a hard time trying to acquire blanks, as http://www.motorcaravanning.co.uk/shopuk/zadi_locks.htm does not ship over the pond to the US, and locating a Silca blank is just a difficult it seems, We will keep looking Thank You Again
  9. Howdy Folks, A customer shipped a teardrop camper over to the US and needs keys made, It appears to be the newer FAP key blank N73266, Is there an aftermarket other blank or equivalent available that will work ? Did find a source here for original blanks, http://www.motorcaravanning.co.uk/shopuk/zadi_locks.htm Thanking You In Advance Again
  10. Thank You, And I apologize for taking so long to get back, Well it appears per the Hoppe Representatives here and in Canada that they cannot help us after several emails & phone calls, since these locks are apparently not part of the US / Canada based sales system, I did some more searching and found the locks are part of what is called the Hoppe Compact System (HCS), And that the cylinder/ plug assembly once inserted is non removable, And that the key blank you suggested may be the correct one looking at the photo but will not know till the locksmith in New York post farther information, Acquiring the blanks to try will be difficult here, though we do have a possible source for some JMA equivalent blanks here in the US, I think ... but without lock in hand as it is 3000 miles distant ... that some of the motorcycle keys or other double sided blanks may fit or be modified to fit, Silca EKC gives me dimensions of the HPP1 & HPP1R and says it is a 5 cut key, & Instacode gives 2 different cutting specs for them, both 7 cuts where I think the photo I see either 5 or 7 cuts, hard to tell, https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&ved=0ahUKEwjbn4yY7snaAhUEr1kKHctJBxQQFgg-MAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Falsataluminyum.com%2FHoppe%2FHoppe.pdf&usg=AOvVaw0teROz7lB3-NrXpmIFUL_N https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=3&ved=0ahUKEwjbn4yY7snaAhUEr1kKHctJBxQQFgg5MAI&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hoppe.com%2Fmedias%2Fsys_master%2Froot%2Fh13%2Fhc0%2F9075779305502%2FGCC-HOPPE-Basic-information-export-markets-09-2014.pdf%3Fattachment%3Dtrue&usg=AOvVaw3rzbZAhaVuDTsWJwUeWUFI https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjbn4yY7snaAhUEr1kKHctJBxQQFggnMAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hoppe.com%2Fmedias%2Fsys_master%2Froot%2Fh66%2Fh19%2F9075778224158%2FHOPPE-HCS-english-03-2013.pdf%3Fattachment%3Dtrue&usg=AOvVaw3qJz4sB5p3TRQLz_eg4NhP Again Thank You For Your Response, I will update as is posted on our forums but will be awhile I think before I hear back from him, Thank You Again
  11. Howdy Folks from across the pond, A locksmith in New York is inquiring about some what I think are Hoppe locks per his photos showing the logo on the lever handle He is trying to determine key way / key blank, and space & depth and the codes if they are available, 1 photo close up of his cylinder in lever with code with Hoppe logo, 1 photo of his mounted lock assembly, 1 photo... I think of correct key & cylinder I found on line..., He is trying to determine key blank, & a published code series if possible, or at least correct Space & Depth and key blank, I appears to be a wafer lock similar to their window locks I think, He is looking for code numbers, M007, M019, M030, M031, ...I am assuming it is a Zero and not an O (oh) since Instacode shows a Silca BAS4R, with 9 cuts for these codes though it may not be the right blank or code series... Any questions ?? Thanking You In Advance ***added better photo of logo***
  12. to many possibilities come up, photo of key way broaching ?? it appears to be double sided ?? brand of lock ?? brand of furniture ?? how many wafers ?? does it have master wafers ?? is it possible as a removable plug with proper removal key ?? ...if so you may be able to pick & remove it, single sided ?? double sided wafers on one side ?? double sided wafers on both sides ?? ...how many wafers on top and how many wafers on bottom ?? wafers symmetrical or a-symmetrical ?? separate or paired wafers ?? if applicable, maybe drive out tail piece / cam retainer , remove plug, try different blanks till one fits nicely, observe wafer heights and fit key by hand, and or find blank to fit nicely and impression to fit, i realize you are across the pond plus another 3000 miles, but might search this site and maybe get lucky and figure out manufacture of lock, lots of photos to go through, http://longlifelocks.ca/
