Chesler lock, tumbler removal

I have a '69 Sovereign and I need to remove the tumbler to facilitate copying keys. I know there is a small pin on the outer handle, and I understand that by pressing that one can remove the tumbler. Problem is: it won't press, and I don't want to get a bigger hammer. Anyone in this forum have experience with such? Would it be easier to remove the whole latch and lock assembly and take that to the locksmith?

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

You will more than likely, wind up replacing the complete lock assembly.

I just had mine out, had a broken E-Clip.

5 screws and it pushed out from the back side. Pretty simple design....

You have a "KT" lock. It was used on the 1970 to 1977 model trailers.

1966 to 1968 trailers used a Bargman lock.

1969 trailers used a Chessler lock. Chessler is out of business.

The Bargman lock, l-100 special, has an extended striker bolt. It is now used on the 1966 to 1969 model trailers.

Ok. If I were to need to remove the Chessler lock, like to grease it or have new keys carefully fitted, would it be removed by taking out all of the screws(as has been mentioned for other locks) or does the pin in the handle play a role in keeping it together.

thanks, bill b.

Remove the two screws from the inside and one or two screws from the edge door frame.

The lock will almost fall out.

There ya go! That's what I was looking for. I have a tendancy to go the "get a bigger hammer route" if I am not careful. So knowing in advance is a big help. Thanks Andy.
Cheers
