    Default Need Key for electrical cabinet door on Mori Seiki ZL15m

    As post states I need a key for the electrical cabinet doors on a 1993 ZL-15m. I am assuming all keys are the same for Mori. I prefer not to cut it off. They shipped the machine with the keys in the locks apparently and these fell out.

    I contacted Mori last week and am still waiting to hear back....
    I also searched ebay and internet.

    Any one with a spare or would mind having one made I will gladly pay.


    Thank you

    Ermmm.. it's just an electrical cab. On a 1993 machine.. 28 years since new?

    Not an exotic "immobilizer" on a half-million-dollar limousine.

    Hem's sake.. any locksmith who does office furniture will

    A) be able to manipulate it open, no damage to the cabinet.

    B) be able to "key it" AND/OR/ELSE fit a present-day replacement.

    C) be able to furnish you all the keys you care to put-by.

    It's their "Day Job". And why they call them "locksmiths".

    Same again, half the ordinary citizens in America - as an additional skill .. born of need. Because this isn't a new need.

    What are you waiting for? A 28 year Mori-dive into THEIR ancient Japanese history over a third-party trinket they bought, rather than made?

    All while a (potentially) INCOME-EARNING machine sits - denied basic access?

    Get real!

    Well I can easily break the lock. I just am just thinking of keeping the machine original. It is in excellent shape for its age. If I didn't know better I would think this was a new machine. Why destroy something if I can find a way to fix it right.

    I was told the keys are the same on all the old Mori Electrical cabinets.

    I'm sure you are doing the right thing.

    A Mori's value really, really plummets if the electrical cabinet's hymen is found to no longer be intact.

    It's likely a standard key, for a standard lock, that's used in millions of other places. If someone can get you a picture of the key, or the identifying markings off one of the locks, it should'nt be hard to get a key sourced or cut. In the mean time, it's very likely an easy rake or a couple swipes with an auto gun. Any half competent or amateur locksmith should be able to open it very easily.

    LOL! Yah.. well..

    Typically under 30 seconds for many among us.. no special tools required.

    1990's were a hotbed of clever mechanical high-security locks,

    But WTF? It's only an electrical cab. On a machine expecting to live INSIDE a secure facility. Not outdoors on a bank ATM kiosk or traffic-light controller or p'liceman's call box.

    Not as if it was likely to be an old Medico or Kaba, is it?

    No need when good enough is cheap enough:

    Switchgear Locks - Hardware - AliExpress

    Locksmith can sort yah with a nice solution. It's part of what they do.
