Chubb Eurosafe Grade 2 Keys Not Working

We were called to this Chubb Eurosafe at a pub in Bootle, Merseyside as they could not get it open despite having the key. They had been struggling to lock and unlock it for some time and today it had completely jammed up. After a good fight we got it open one last time and decided that the lock was long overdue retirement so we changed it for a newer model.

We were called to open this Chubb TDR safe for a client in Ormskirk, the story was that the key had been stuck but they had managed to get it out. Once on site we found a broken key stem and no key bit so we proceeded to open the safe none destructively. Once open we found the key bit inside the back pan. Nice to see a quality safe from the days when engineering was all about quality and not price.

A bar in Liverpool One had used the wrong keys in each lock of this Chubb Europa safe and having tried to force the locks open the keys had become mangled and snapped off deep inside the locks. Two companies had already attended the job prior to them calling us and despite charging for their time they had only managed to add to the problem by filling the keyway with blu-tack (The mind boggles). After a lengthy battle we were able to remove all of the broken bits of keys and proceeded to pick the locks open as no spares were available. Having opened the safe with zero damage to it we changed the locks and provided new sets of keys.
