    Timothy, it seems that there is a cheap reproduction of this padlock.

    See the following https://www.amazon.com/Antique-Style.../dp/B01DQ0OMAY

    Default 1800's Crablock Padlock Patent

    That what i was thinking about the brass padlock was from eBay. The only thing i think it missing that some of Britain padlock have the queen stamp on it but not really sure. Guess leave it up to people in Britain to find out. It just i find the patent number for it and again the patent number doesn't say Craplock...Timothy.....

    Default crabclaw padlocks

    Linley's padlock BP5376 of 1880 is a lever padlock which is self-locking. There is no evidence known to me that it was made.

    David and Isaac Waine, who traded as John Waine & Sons, of Brittania Works, Willenhall, were granted BP5176 of 1888. The Patent Office examiner decided it did not infringe Linley's patent. Most of the Waine production was exsperted to USA.

    There exist several Indian copies of the Waine lock. They are variously marked; one has what might be Urdu script. Another came from the 'AZEEMULLAH INDIAN COMPANY' - VERY NICE'.

    This latest version of CRABLOCK is related to one marked NSW RAILWAYS 1870 PAT (9?)873. Other versions are marked only CRABLOCK.

    The Waine original was 2lever. It's not clear what mechanism this latest version has ó it has being on the go several years, and is poorly made. Some examples have soon broken, they are very poor iron castings, unlike Waine which was made of brass.

    Default Linley's patent crablock

    It seems possible the lock was made, at least briefly , by Milner.
