    Default For Sale:Antique Vintage 4" Star Lock Padlock W/Key Jail - Scandinavian


    Scandinavian Star Padlock made by Star Lock Works.

    • This lock measures 4" x 3" and is fully functional.
    • The key is original and measures 2 7/8" long.
    • Star on the keyway has 7 dots

    Star Lock Works was in business from 1836 to 1926. Their trade mark star around the keyhole is what can be used to identify it. The dots in the star are actually the key code for cutting the key if it should be lost.One dot means no angle cuts, two dots a half angle cut and three dots a full angle cut. The word Scandinavian in the title refers to the style of the lock.

    Pictures are of the actual lock you are bidding on.
