Craftsman toolbox

I have my son's craftsman toolbox, it is a roller box 7 drawers. I cannot find the key. I contacted Sears and they said they dont use the locking mec. anymore.

Any Ideas in getting into the box? I am thinking about drilling it out and replacing it. Talked with a locksmith friend and he said he would come by and make a key for it. He must be real busy cause he has not showed up.

Re: Craftsman toolbox

Hello NOGILLS2

New employee started 2 months ago work got issued a new Craftsman box with keys
When someone forgets his key they try any key that will fit and if that fails just drill the lock out gently. Replacement locks are cheeper than a locksmith making a hand made key

Re: Craftsman toolbox

... if you can, wait a while... it will be picked faster than you can drill it out.

If you get the numbers off the cylinder you could get keys made..

Oh Floyd that's my bad...your friend called and said he was going to be delayed and I forgot to pass on the message. Said he locked his keys in his truck and was waiting on AAA.

Re: Craftsman toolbox

The numbers on the lock denote a lock sears no longer uses, thus no keys available from sears.

Re: Craftsman toolbox

Floyd... ok.. the locksmith's here knew the type that was being used on my older one.... long story...

But, now that things are "imported", you're probably going to enjoy drilling it out.. because there is no telling where it was made.. =)

Re: Craftsman toolbox

The Locksmith should have a book that has all those key numbers in it..

He "should" be able to cut you a key from your numbers...

Sears won't have it, But a good locksmith will..

Re: Craftsman toolbox

Those locks are really easy to pick Floyd.

You probably could do it with a paperclip with just a little bend in the end.

maybe 3MM long at a 45degree angle...

Just use a little screwdriver to hold tension on the lock and then just rake the tumblers with your home made pick... It'll pop right open...

Re: Craftsman toolbox

Floyd:

What are the numbers on the lock?

I used to be in the standby generator service business and collected a huge ring of keys. The cabinets on those use the same locks as do a lot of tool boxes. Might get lucky.
