NONE OF THESE LOCKS ARE FOR SALE THIS IS AN IDENTIFICATION GUIDE

These locks can come with or without a chain. The chain attachment can be found on the shackle or on the upper, middle, or lower part of the body, and one model has the shackle adapted for attachment. We imagine that locks sold to a particular company may have received different chain attachment spots in different orders. We will not be listing company variations but please note they may occur.

It is possible to find locks from the same company that have different stamped or incised markings designating usage. The B&O railroad would put each division name on locks issued. There are a quite a few varieties of markings seen on Army Ordnance locks, a few being shown above. Some collectors may try to get all of the B&O division or ordnance marking variations while other collectors are happy to have one example.

Some companies ordered more than one size of Yale padlock. The United States Navy seems to have used the greatest variety in both standard (as seen above) and mini Yale padlocks (as seen below). Dedicated collectors will want an example in each size. Shackles can be found in both brass and steel which increases the number of locks that can be collected.

Plates or discs for the logo locks were made. It could have been that these were used to make sales samples to show prospective customers. If the company then put in an order perhaps the one piece lock side was then manufactured. Any information gladly accepted.

HENRY & THOMAS VAUGHAN STANDARD WORKS

H&TV was an English company founded in 1830 by two bothers who manufactured an array of locks. They started making pin tumblers in 1910 and in 1929 were bought out by Yale. We have found three different H&TV logo locks and are unsure if they were made before or after Yale took over.

Locks we have seen are smaller in size than the usually seen Yale logo locks.
