Hi,
I've been having a bit of a problem with a pair of thumbcuffs.
The key broke off in the key way, so I took the key post out to remove the bits of key from the lock.
With the key post out I tried the post in a few different keys I have lying around the place and the post is too wide for any of the keys. Even a key that came with an identical pair of cuffs.
Does anyone have any idea as to how I could thin out the key post so the key can fit over it?
Many thanks,
Ros

Ros...Send me the key post and a sample of the keys you need to use and I'll reduce the size on my lathe, or make you a new one.

What about altering a key? take the top of the barrel off?

Mick,

You are too kind.

Could you pm me your address and the cost for your work and I'll pop it in the post.

Cheers,

Ros

I think that would be the best Idea Ros. A small lathe would work best.
