HELP Finding the missing KEY

Hi

My girlfriend and I are restoring our 1968 power boat. There is 3 doors with this locks (see the pictures) and we donít have the keys for them.

Anybody knows where we can get some keys made, or get a new cylinder fitting in the old doors.

Your help is very much appreciated

Looks a lot like a Shlage/Emtek or similar.
Same keyway just different appearance or slightly different sizes

There are a couple of ways to do this.
1. Measure all dimensions carefully and compare to drawings of potential replacements.
2. Buy one of each of any lock that looks the same. Then try each one out.
3. Post on a locksmith forum.
4 try to find hardware to replace entire mechanism not just lock.
5, same as 1 or 2 but try to find a lock cylinder (the part that the key fits in held in with the two phillips screws)
in the center of the lock that will fit into this one
6. Find a good locksmith in the USA and fed ex them to him.
I use Tony's in San Clemente California. Great people.

Re: HELP Finding the missing KEY

is there a number on any of them? If so, you could contact a US locksmith and see if they can make you keys from the number.
