  1. quote from one who knows, Thank You Peter P. Schifferli "old Lori Lock Schlage C blank with Lori bow, their 2-digit code 89, P/N 4200-00-4078, no exact Ilco substitution but is an SC1 keyway...."
  2. Lori Storm Door ?? or Lori cylinder ?? garage door lock ?? if the cylinder was worn then a Schlage C key may slide in, so I think you at are looking for a CLP1, 1537 Clopay Key, which is basically a thinner version of Schlage C, or possibly X1014L / LO1, then again Lori has used several keyways over the years and Schlage C was one of them, Glad you found a key to fit
  3. Since my post has not been removed I will add what he has said about what he remembers about the move, Again please remove post if not appropriate Thank You He has said While at my Grandmother's home in the 1960's, I watched the most fun little English movie. A fellow finds a wallet containing Gold Sovereigns and returns the wallet to it's rightful owner. The person getting the wallet back offers the young man a "finders fee", which is turned down, the fellow wants a JOB. He gets one collecting rents in a run down area of (I guess) London. This is in the 1800's. The fellow does well and supports his Mother. He gains respect from his peers who at one time made fun of him. What is the name of this B&W movie? Thanks MUCH, Randy Main also, "Howard - I posted about a British movie I wanted to "know more about". After thinking about it, I think YOU are my only HOPE. (wow). You asked me about it. Here is ALL I KNOW. A kid in England, Maybe London, is not popular with the other kids and helps his Mother. He finds a wallet and it has leather pouches in it that contain English Sovereign coins AND the address of who it belongs to. Up to this point, AND continueing through the movie, there is NO "romantic" or comedy theme. It is just about a kid who needs a job. As I can remember, he gets a job with that company that is a property management company and he gets to collect rents from their worst paying tenants. He soft talks tham, no strong-arm methods. He does very well and advances through the ranks of the company, eventually becoming and looking very prosperous. A fellow that had given trouble as a kid and made fun of his Mother, is now a footman (a low job) on a beautiful carriage. The fellow whispers "Good morning and how is your Mum?" A BIG difference from his previous attitude. I look through lists of British films, knowing it is NOT going to be titled "the invasion of the spiders" or "behind the green door". Howard... I NEED your help... FIND THIS MOVIE... (please) It's black and white. thanks. 007"
  4. Howdy Folks, Please remove this post if not appropriate, Sorry for posting here but I do not see a non tech section to post in, Is there someone I can email as to finding out about an old black & white British ?? movie for another locksmith over here in the US ?? Thanking You In Advance Howard
  5. I would tend towards Yale Small pin, Does the key in the photo operate the locks ?? It is not in my books back to 1929 for US models, European market used different specs for US cars sold to Europe, It is also possible they are not the original locks, If you can post the year, make model and any other information, I can post your photo and information on some US locksmith forums for a possible answer Howard
  6. Howdy Folks, A locksmith over here is trying to remove a Half Cylinder Thumbturn from a door, As In the photos you can see, There is no screw in door edge that aligns with it, There IS a slot to depress or lift a spring loaded pin to let the turn rotate farther but it will still not come out even with the escutcheon removed, Could it just be a tight fit or is he missing something other then aligning the cam to vertical down ?? Does he need to align it and grab the shank ( round turn removed) with vise grips and pull hard ?? Possible to remove the part of the door edge metal part and find a hidden retaining screw ?? Other possibilities ?? https://www.icloud.com/photos/#0qo1KNynTxd5WqzbhgfMY3OgQ Thanking You In Advance Howard
