Martin Hewitt's Questions

I think it makes sense to open a thread for my detail questions where (it seams) nobody has an answer. In case I find an answer I will update my post.

Difference La Gard 1985 and 3390?

What is the difference between a La Gard 1985 and a La Gard 3390 which makes the first a group 1 and the second a 2M? On photos of the internals they look very similar. Both seem to have the fence lever control device aka tomahawk. (Patent US4756176) I would like to understand why one is 1 and the other 2M.

Difference S&G FAS 6880 and 6890?

What is the difference between a S&G GAS 6880 and a 6890 which makes one a EN1300 class B and the other a class C? Both have 9 levers and use the same key. From I quick glance I did not recognize a difference. I will look tomorrow more closely. So perhaps I have then the answer.

1. Ad.: I put both next to each other. I really cannot see any significant difference. The direction of the levers was different, but the 6880 was certainly opened before and I am not sure of the direction (left/right) or the spring was the original order. Probably this does not make any real difference anyway. It might be that the levers have a better precision in the 6890, but I can't really see this. It might also be that it is just a marketing issue.

Why so many S&G combination lock models?

This is probably not a technical, but a marketing question. I do not understand why they have so many models. E.g. there are three different mechanisms sold to protect group I locks. (The 8410 with the small twisting knob. The 8550 with the push dial. The 6430 or so with the wider lever and the bar at the tip.) And there are zillion other variants. The vault locks with a completely different layout. The a bit less secure locks with the silver lever. The radiological protected locks. ... This must make the production more expensive. So why not cut it down?
