HELP REQUESTED - Cabinet Key locks - DING DL lock

Hi,

Hoping someone can offer some insight here for me please. We are missing several individual keys for a large cabinet unit - ideally we'd like to avoid replacing the whole unit, but I can't seem to find any information about the original manufacturer to request replacements.

I have attached 2 pictures that I hope will be useful: First is a picture of the lock face (the salesman at an online key shop asked me for this, so I figure there's something useful to seeing this?).

Second is a picture of the keys used for the locks - I found them on American Ebay.

The manufacturer on the keys we still have say DING DL and they are all identical to the keys in the picture (they just have different serial numbers on them)

I know nothing about picking locks so Id really appreciate some guidance. Is it possible to purchase a tool to pick the locks of the cabinets we can't access? There are about 12 in total we are missing keys for. Or is it possible to order a master key for the manufacturer directly?

Any help appreciated! Thanks :smile:

Hi locksmiths usually go off a code stamped on face of lock
No code on yours so not possible to make key if code unknown
Chinese locks best to buy new cam locks and change them
Many vids on YouTube on opening and simple enough to change

Hey mate,

Thanks for your response - you mentioned there are guides on youtube for this? As I really have no clue what I'm looking for, would you mind linking me to one of these videos?

Also, are there any specific tools that would be useful to me?

Re: HELP REQUESTED - Cabinet Key locks - DING DL lock

These are a common cabinet lock, my local golf club has them on their toilet cupboards and recently lost the keys, I just impressioned a new one and cut some spares from it. Your local decent locksmith should be able to do the same if you want to keep it original.
