Zeni Keys or Lock with key.

I am looking for two Zeni keys a number 15 and a number 24, I have a few blanks so could copy and return, alternately I would be interested in purchasing a complete working lock assembly with key or a barrel with key, provided in the latter case the key has not been removed while the barrel is out of the lock.

Alternatively does anyone know a good locksmith who has been able to make keys for these locks where the original has been lost, any help will be much appreciated.

Geoff.

Geoff,

Should have replied a long time ago - apologies. Not sure if this will help - shortly after I acquired my 403 in 2015 I realised that the two Zeni keys would go in the lock but would not turn. Something had clearly become misplaced inside. I did some research and Wallsall locks still existed as a Company (they still do in 2019). so I phoned them up and was put on directly to the MD. He launched straight in and complained that he kept getting requests to fix Bristol door locks and didn't want to do any more. However, once he had calmed down he told me to put my lock and keys in the post. A couple of weeks later, the package came back, all fixed by one of his locksmiths, and a bill for 30 some pounds. I was well pleased! Don't know if he could or would help you Geoff, but maybe worth a try?

Mike,

Thanks for that, I did read about Wallsall locks in CMM the autojumblers paper and when I contacted them I got the same response as you but did get the offer that they would try and help with the supply of blanks. I did not follow that up as a plan to call in and see fell by the wayside and I must admit that I had completely forgotten about them. Now I have managed to obtain some blank keys of the right size from a firm in Bristol I think I might take the locks off the cars and give Wallsall locks another try, perhaps calling in to see them.

A local engineer and friend of mine has one of my locks which he says he can  fix but with so much work on I don't when it will see the light of day, he has also told me he can alter the other two locks I have to work off the same key, its just a question of time and I'm getting older!
