    Default Unusual Firesafe Key Blanks?

    Does anyone recognise these? I should do, as i recall we struggled to get hold of them twenty odd years ago, but can't for the life of me remember what they were for. Small square bits and very distinctive bows, oddball overseas Chubb rings a bell, would have been pre-Milner Range before they fitted those ridiculous wafer cam locks releasing the latch via steel cables, but I'm also thinking early Hadak of Sweden...

    I think they are for the locks on the nightsafe traps

    Cheers Gary, I was way out there then on both those guesses.
    I wish I could say that's now jogged my memory and its all come back to me, but tbh it's still just as vague as before!

    Found a load of old blanks in the garage and there were some of these labelled up as Chubb nightsafe blanks, looks like they did them in various lengths, so they may have used them for other stuff as well.
    Did Chubb do a reasonably modern mortice lock with a detector fitted?
