What to do when you lose your keys for a filing cabinet?

Some say that inside, there’s a long, lost social club cashbox filled with real paper money. Some believe it holds old Charlie’s real job description, and that he’s the one who threw away the key. Others think it may even contain handwritten notes.

But no one knows.

Because that filing cabinet has been locked longer than anyone (except maybe old Charlie) has been working here. So, what to do to open it up?

Well, there are a few ways you can reveal its possibly valuable contents:

  1. Look for the code stamped on the lock, next to the keyhole. Or better yet, just send a photo of the lock with the number visible, and email it to info@lockstock.com.au and we’ll do the rest. Around two working days and $27-$41 later, we’ll have the key in the post for you. You don’t even have to leave the office.
  2. Can’t find the code? Maybe it’s a locker that needs to be opened. No worries, Lock, Stock & Farrell can help. Call us and we’ll be on site at the appointed time, and have the cabinet or locker open in a jiffy, keys for you to keep safe. Usually it costs around $125 – $165 for the callout, hardware and key. We can also replace the locks at an additional cost if they have been damaged by someone who “has had a go” at getting in themselves.
  3. If you need to get into the cabinet or locker urgently, call us on 6350 8500 for fast on-site service 7 days a week.
