    Default Did Chatwood make their own combination locks?

    Or get other companies like kromer to supply them?
    Had to open one on a Chatwood Treasury today and when I look at something like a SAM lock, it makes me think it could have been Chatwood made, this one I suspect was bought in.

    Cheers Gary that's impressive, used to see a few small ones with those hinges and dual locking always key/comb but they were never anywhere near Treasury quality like that.

    It doesn't look Kromer to me. The base design is an S&G lock which seems to have been copied a lot. The only Kromer which would fit is the 15B which has clear differences in the details of the case.

    The only reason I mentioned Kromer is because of Chatwoods use of some of their keylocks, so there was obviously a supplier type relationship there with them at one time. Nettlefolds and Aubin also spring to mind.

    Would that triple locking be standard or is it a special order? I hadn't seen one before. I know Ratner used to make triple lock heavy units.

    I think it may be standard on the treasury models, all three locks block the boltwork, but the kc lock also throws shutters to block the keyholes

    I suppose that is why the bolt throwing handle is so low. I could imagine that being a bit awkward.
