Subject: Hartmann Yale H71 key

I given an mid 1920's a Hartmann wardrobe trunk but it is locked with no key. I am looking for a Yale Hartmann H71 key for the lock. From what I have read it is a common lock number but I have not been able to locate a key for it and do not wish to drill the lock out. Any help you can provide in finding a key that would open the truck would be appreciated.

If I were to send a photo of an old lock I own would someone be able to help identify it?<br> I’ve done diligent work via internet but have only been able to find out the lock’s manufacturer: Hobbs & Co, London.<br> I’d be grateful for any help on this quest. <br>Aristides@methownet.com

TNHMK; the other side simply says: Eagle. <br><br>The key does not fit a door so I am curious as to the lock it fits? Thank you kindly.

Subject: How to remove padlock cylinder

I have my father's Eagle brass padlock but no key. The lock is now open. A local locksmith was able to pick the lock and provided a blank that fits, but he was not able to remove the cylinder. The lock has a hole in the body side opposite the hasp latch, and a pin hole beside the cylinder under the fixed side of the hasp. The blank that fits the cylinder is an ILCO 1014 DX EA13. No marking on the body other than the word EAGLE. Any help greatly appreciated. May reply to my email: dketter@sbcglobal.net
