    Im not aware of an ES bolt code for any British market Tann though, so Im of no help with that.

    I reckon safeman will have more for you as he knows loads about Tanns American market adventures.
    Thank you for your confidence Huw.

    The old stuff I remember but my recollections of the US market has dimmed considerably.

    I meant to add a reminder from a previous post.

    John Tann never claimed that their TSB, TBT, of TST held a ULTRTL30x6 label and it is quite deceitful for these to be offered for sale as "ALTHOUGH NOT TESTED BY UNDERWRITERS LABORATORIES IT IS A TRTL-30X6 RATING" This does not imply that they are any less secure as the Test Houses in the rest of the world do not necessariy follow the same principals.

    The Tann Swedish factory did however produce and successfully test a Tann TRTL30x6 which was intended mainly for the US market.

    The key changeable ones I remember were Kromer Convar and a little slimline Stuv one, it would probably be the Convar one

    Convar is an 8-lever. In the document it is mentioned that it is a 9-lever. So I don't think it is a Convar. Maybe a Rosengren?

    Default tann

    The color of paint used in the American versions:
    Jewelers- Dark Blue
    TST- Brown
    TBT- Medium Blue
    TST- Tan
    The key escutcheon was use to ID these safe also. The one in the picture has the black swing . This was not used on the Jewelers in the US. Both used the TRI-Spoke handle be it black or silver.
    The paint on the TSB/TBT/TST imported to the US had textured paint.The jewelers where smooth.
    Hope this helps Tim
