    Default Armoured Yale padlock

    Does anyone have any information about this padlock please?

    I think its similar inside to an 850, but with an iron case around it.
    Yale themselves were no help.

    Hinged on one side of the shackle.
    Takes a YA 14D keyblank.

    I don't have any specific information but do have a couple comments that may help a bit:
    • Likely from Yale UK, haven't seen anything similar on this side of the pond
    • JMA says YA-14D crosses to Ilco 998GL which is the master for LA, LB, LC, LD, LE, LF, LG, LH and LK sectionals, thus the original might have been one of those keyways, see thumbnail of L Series keyway hierarchy taken from Ilco Key Blank Directory, 12th ed., sec. 2, pg. 73
    • During World War 2 brass was needed for the war effort and alternate materials were often used to conserve brass for ammunition, thus perhaps your padlock dates to that era?

    The JMA cross reference to Ilco 998GL was taken from my JMA catalog dated 2012 but I'm told a later 2017 edition does not show this, thus the cross reference to Yale may be erroneous. Sorry for the confusion.

    I am not involved in padlock collecting, but have seen a lot of Yale products. Pete has suggested possibly from the UK. I agree with that possibility and will take it a step further. I have never seen the Y in Yale printed like that. Could it be a faked Yale?
