    I suspect your meant the ' Mersey ' lock. They were not made by Chubb. The name of the company escapes me for the present but no doubt someone else will recall.

    Anyway - what do you want to know ?

    I did a Google Images search for "mersey lock" (without the quotes) and came up with a nice article and pictures:

    I have at least 2 but they both have the black cover/case on, I haven't worked out how to remove it to get to the workings.
    :(

    It usually requires the action of the key to remove the cover.

    Without a key one must either pick the lock (not easy) or damage the plastic cover.

    The article goes into this a little, the case cannot be removed unless the lock is open.

    Yep I have the keys, I just had a couple of difficult/ sticky ones for some reason - I managed to wiggle the cover of one of them earlier today.

    Wiggle the cover OFF, that should read!

    I agree just jiggle a bit with it and you will get it open I am sure.
