Climax Lock

Here is a nice brass lock found by John “JJ” Freeman this week. It has “J.H.W. CLIMAX NEWARK N.J. U.S.A.” stamped on the front side of the shackle and “T. T. CO.” stamped on the back of the shackle. Scroll on down.

Have not been able to identify the “T. T. CO.” and here is a listing that was on Ebay earlier in the year. This Ebay’er could not identify the company either.

Here is a listing for the “J.H.W. Climax” company from the October 29, 1908 issue of “The Iron Age” out of New York. In their listing of products is switch locks, so a good guess would be that this is a switch lock.

Outstanding find JJ.
