I guess it's a bit like a bus mans holiday for you to do your own car. The car is more OH's than mine, although I do like it and help with it. It's the complete opposite to his job, this is clean, requires a light touch and makes a nice accessory for my green Dandy. lol!

Lost Key's / no Key's

Post by normy bear on Sat 23 Feb 2013, 7:07 pm

I recently bought a dandy dart with no key's , I went to a firm called Access Lock's in Ellesmere Port and left the lock with them , about one hour later they rang me to say they had made two key's for me , i went to see them and fair enough they had made two new key's for my old lock, which worked perfectly, it cost £18, not cheap but a fair price and my problem's were solved. I do'nt know if they do mail order ( if you send them the barrel )but may-be your local lock-smith can do the same job Very Happy

Same here, our 1974 Orange came without keys. Took it to Orrell Lock and Key Centre on recommendation and to be honest they weren't interested in looking at it. Visited Eckersalls in St Helens adn they couldn't be more helpful. Two keys whilst we waited for the grand sum of £10 and no drilling the door to replace it. Very Happy

New cylinders yes and even complete new assemblies just Google Caraloc 430.
This ad doesn't say but they are handed. The ones on rear entry Dandys are left handed the ones on the one on side entry Dandys are right handed but it's not a big difference.

In fact I bet Dandy only ever ordered 1 type does your door handle push down to lock Mike?

Ahh ... I'm glad this thread has sprung to life as it may answer a question I was about to ask.

On my previous 'rear entry' Designer the internal handle was push down to open - pull up to lock - very logical.

The Destiny on the other hand (literally) is pull up to open - push down to lock, and very infuriating.

So is it the case that if I procure a right-handed Caraloc 430 it will work like my old Designer and make me happy again? Very Happy

Well I'd check my definition of left and right handed but generally yes.

You have gone through the wiring did you seriously expect them to have bought two different spec locks? Then again why left and right hand sinks with left hand sinks generally only on Deltas?

Is this borderline OCD (CDO for those of you who need the letters in alphabetical order) or just too much money to spend?
Do you drink? Come camping I can assist with a major manyana weekend where these things cease to be problems. You live in the .... Thought it was the South West was going to suggest we visit you with Jake helping on the cider infusion. Then looked up your profile your from:

Would a weekend on the Special Brew help then?

Excellent - I think your definition is right as I found another type of caravan lock where the right/left definition made sense so now I just need to find the 430 in stock somewhere.

They did it to ensure that we'd still be talking about them for years to come Wink

Strongbow seems to be the drink of choice here. Seriously, it's stacked up by the crateload in every supermarket. Can't stand the stuff myself, although I am partial to a good cider.

I'm afraid I do know the answer to your question in this case - it was Mr Churchill. It's a debate for another thread as to which (the 'beer' or the man) we would have been better off without. silent
