Could be a case of changing the lock then. I've never heard of a key specialist taken a proof from a barrel, even for an old car. But I bet there are people out there who can help.

Good luck.

Whitby eh! Not at the Magpie by any chance then!

Iam not a lock specialist but do know that the older Ford models (dont know about other makes) had there key numbers stamped on the lock barrels. The dealers could then cross refer this number in a book and cut a key using there master keys.

Hi
I had a similar problem a few months ago on my freelander, got auto locksmith out to the car thinking it would be as simple as taking a barrel out getting number and jobs a good one. Not that simple apparently only the ignition had all the numbers so after taking the drivers door and boot barrels out he had 8 out of ten numbers then had to use trial and error for the other two. Took him 4 hours but managed it, luckily he had quoted for the job before he started so I didn't get ripped off. Hope you get it sorted.

Hello all, I have a relatively new Drennan twistlock 3m landing net pole. Just recently it has stopped locking. I have taken it apart and cleaned the inside of the tube but no luck. I suspect that I am not the first to have this problem. Should i need any Lockspecialist or i can solve this problem myself. Any ideas anyone?
