3 1/4 x 3/4 LOCK SOCK COVER FOR STATEWIDE T-HANDLES RC19-901S

$2.75

"LOCK SOCK" RUBBER T-HANDLE COVER. COVER KEEPS THE WEATHER AND SALT OUT AND PROTECTS THE LOCK CORE.

Everyday we deal with people who can't get their key to work in their outside lock and 99% of the time it is because the inside is gummed up and the inside wafers can't function correctly.   If you have this problem, go to the bottom  of this ad for our suggestions to free the lock up that works almost everytime!

THIS RUBBER COVER IS DESIGNED FOR  T-HANDLES THAT ARE ON STATEWIDE EQUIPMENT.   IT HAS SQUARED ENDS, MEASURES APPROX 3 1/4 X 3/4' UNSTRETCHED.   IT IS DESIGNED to STRETCH OVER THE HANDLE.

 

ARE YOU LOOKING AT THIS ITEM BECAUSE YOU HAVE LOST YOUR KEY to THE TOPPER OR TOOLBOX? WE MAY HAVE A REPLACEMENT KEY  

1.)    If you have a sliding door over the lock face, make sure is it fully out of the way so you are able to insert the key properly.   Sometimes the cover sticks in place and won't let you insert your key until you wiggle it out of the way.2.)    Does the key fit in the lock properly?  If so, that tells us it is the correct keyway.  When inserted, does it just not turn?3.)    If number 2 is true, then it might mean that the wafers inside the lock are stuck in place. They can get this way if the lock has been exposed to weather.  First spray the key with a good lubricant (preferably not WD40 as it has very little lube and causes dirt to stick)  and insert it in and out and do this a second time. Then see if you can get the key to move slightly.  If not, get more aggressive and spray more  lubricant (a graphite is good) directly in the lock so that it flushes out some of the gunk (some people have used brake cleaner with success)  Let sit over night, if possible.  If you are noticing that the key is moving more and more each time,  that's a good sign.
4.)     If 3 fails,  get a small hammer and tap gently all around the outside of the lock/handle.  Sometimes you can actually hear the ping when the spring that is stuck breaks loose.  Sharp raps, but not enough to deface or warp the metal.  Some people finally had success by tapping on the key itself (but gently).
