Not exactly what you were thinking...

I'm finally getting my pinball machines up and running and I seem to have lost the key to one of them. I really don't want to drill the lock out so if anyone has any expertise in this area, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

The lock is probably easy to pick and you can find the tools on the internet.

Before that I would try and locate the manufacture and see if you can get a replacement key.

The manufacturer has been out of business for about 20 years and the lock does not have the key number. I have about 20 pinball lock keys and of course, none of them work.

Thanks for the ideas.

OK, since this is your machine, you can probably drill a small hole (use a hole saw) in the bottom of the unit, then using a flashlight and a big screw driver, you should be able to either break the lock, or better, dislodge the clip that holds the lock in place, but I would just contact Affordable Lock and Security, and have them pick the lock.
