    Default Unusual Large Chubb Hasp Style Lock

    Looking for some insights about the typical uses and manufacture date of this heavy duty Chubb hasp style lock.
    It is 8-1/2 inches long. The section with the key is 2-3/8 inches wide and 7/8 inches thick. 2 of the more oxidized keys are stamped Chubb. The third key appears to have a rust free coating (perhaps nickel or zinc?) but is not marked. The serial # is not 100% clear but as far as I can tell it is Wb1Z. The #10 appears twice and the letters AQ appear on the backside. Thanks.

    Very nice, don't know the reference but it looks to be an early forerunner of their Hercules horizontal padbar. They made many changes as it evolved over the years but yours has what looks the same type of 6 lever mech and keys as used in the Battleship padlocks.

    The two keys marked Chubb are originals, the other is just a copy. Chubb were always strict on this, their genuine issue blanks were marked (often with a star) to prevent a copied duplicate key from being passed off as an original.
    Here's two recent Battleship blanks for comparison:

    Many thanks Huw for the prompt reply. I was surprised to find a Chubb padbar battleship hasp ( no integral locking mechanism) currently on ebay (see low rez photo attached). Compared to the modern one on Ebay my version certainly harkens back to a bygone era.

    Thatís an outstanding bit of kit, looks much nicer compared to the more recent version! I wonder if the modern version would hold up to an attack much better considering the strength of materials used and developed much later. ( I donít mean a gas torch attack ! Hammer and chisel! Old style) The older version is exceedingly nicer to look at... nice one !
