    Default Looking for information on Lever-tumbler padlocks

    I’m looking for information on Lever-tumbler padlocks.
    I have been collecting them for a while and have ten different sizes of Yale ones with the trefoil logo and flat shackle and three with the round shackle.
    I also own a few manufactured by Sargent, Eagle, and Corbin and a few with the newer Yale logo.
    Can anyone give me any information on the different sizes made by the other companies and in which sizes Yale made them with the newer logo.
    I have attached a photo of my “Yale Lever-tumbler Padlock” collection and one showing a lock with what I mean by the newer logo.
    Thanks.

    The Yale 800-Series cast bronze lever tumbler padlocks were made for many years and in numerous sizes:

    • 800 - 3/4"
    • 813 - 1"
    • 823 - 1-1/4"
    • 833 - 1-1/2"
    • 843 - 1-3/4"
    • 853 - 2"
    • 863 - 2-1/4"
    • 873 - 2-1/2"
    • 894 - 3"
    • 897 - 3-1/2"

    I hope this helps a little. The thumbnail shows various trademark designs used over the years by Yale from Historical Research Series #19, May 1987 by the late Thomas F. Hennessy.

    Thanks for the replies.
    I was just checking and also have a 1 1/4" with a flat steel shackle with opening for a flat key.
    Don't know the number as I only have a copy of the #26 catalogue and it's not listed there.

    Here are PDFs with a cut-away view showing construction of Yale lever-tumbler "Standard" padlocks (1929) together with the original key blanks used (1939). I tried to merge the files into one but it was apparently too large to upload.
