Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Tool box lock
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Oneal Lee on Thursday, August 31, 2017 - 01:09 am:

I have a running board tool box that's missing the top part of the lock. It don't have any name but looks like the yale locks. I have looked on the web for a replacement with no luck. Any suggestions on getting a replacement?

Best bet might be to just find a junk box at a swap meet and take it off that.

I'd trade problems with you! I'm looking for a small metal locking toolbox that would look period correct for my '27 touring. I bought a current John Deere box that looked OK at the dealer, but the more I thought about it, the more work it would have needed. There's just no place in the T to secure anything.

Oneal:

I have Corbin locks that are available for sale - they are square bottom.

See this thread and scroll down to see style of what I have - the three locks shown may have already been sold but I do have more on hand (I'm down at the parents' house right now so I can't check).

Yale locks are round bottom. I don't think I have any of those in my inventory but I will check when I get home.

Oneal:

I currently have five Corbins available - square bottom.

Unfortunately, no Yales with the round bottom.

I have one key that fits two of the locks.

I know what you mean, Bro. -These locking tool box latches are all but impossible to buy commercially. -I've searched antique steamer trunk restorers, toolbox manufacturers and hardware supply websites for hours at a time and have had absolutely no luck with any of 'em. -It happens that I've got a Corbin latch on my running-board toolbox, but no key for the darned thing and have been hoping to replace it with a latch that I can lock. -Sure doesn't look like that's going to happen. -On the other hand, Hershey is coming up and is a good hunting ground for this sort of thing. -Best of luck on your quest.

When I restored my tool box I took the Yale lock apart and made my own key.
