Red face Locked Keys in Shed - Eagle Lock

Duh !

We locked the keys to the shed in the shed. Of course, we only have the one set. We can see them sitting on the table, but cannot access unless we: A- Break the window; B- Break the door; C- Cut a hole in the wall.

The lock is made by Eagle Lock Co of Terryville,CT - I believe it's probably made & installed sometime in the late 50's. I'd hate to lose the lock and was hoping you may have a suggestion other than paying & waiting for a locksmith.

I had hoped to contact the Eagle Lock Co. and request a "Master" for the lock we have but it seems they're no longer in business.

Any hints on picking the lock?

Sorry to hear about that. Worst thing is that you can see them. If you cannot remove the door from the hinges or pry it open a bit farther to slip past the bolt, your best bet to avoid destruction is to call a locksmith.

Lockpicking, which requires special tools, and other bypass techniques are not really appropriate for a public forum such as this since we do not know who may use them inappropriately.

Good luck.

Thanks for the reply.

I found a pretty cool website : www.howstuffworks.com

It explained the basics for trying to pick the lock.
I'm gonna try that first and if that fails, I'll probably break a window.

The window is probably the most easy/cheapest repair to make. Time for a spare key
