It comes with a Branford branded skeleton key that functions with it. The key is marked Branford along the shaft on one side and Patd Dec 11 88 (1888) on the reverse.

We clean, oil and test all of our lock boxes to make sure that they are fully functional. If needed, we may be able to match a skeleton key. We also may be able to match a strike plate/keeper for an additional $10. Please let us know if you are needing additional parts. It is best if we can match parts up while we have it in hand so that we can make sure everything works together properly.

We attempt to include any significant damage beyond regular wear within the description. We make every effort to clean as much paint, dirt and rust off of items while still leaving as much of the original patina as possible. Photos shown are of actual item you will receive.

Branford Lock Works

Branford Lock Works began in 1852 as Squire and Parsons Manufacturing Company after a failed stove business left the factory in Branford, CT. available for lock making. The company was purchased in 1862 by Thomas Kennedy and incorporated as Branford Lock Works in 1865.  In 1894, Yale & Towne purchased the company. In 1910, a strike consequently closed the plant and operations moved to the Yale and Towne headquarters in Stamford, CT.
