The padlocks in this category were designed and manufactured by Gene Baxter.

Click to Enlarge Image Combination. 1 3/16" high x 1 13/32" wide x 19/32" largest body diameter (Actual: 1.200" high x 1.415" wide x .600" largest body diameter). Brass and steel body. Steel shackle. Brass wheels. The lock works like the original, and four wheels must be aligned correctly before the two buttons on either end can be pressed in to release the shackle. There is a trick however. The center knurled body section (which looks like the other two smaller knurled body sections that don't move) must also be turned to a certain location before the buttons can be pressed in. Once everything is aligned correctly the shackle will be released, and can be removed from the lock. Designed by: Gene Baxter. Mfg by: Gene Baxter, 2009.
Only 1 of these locks were made.

Click to Enlarge Image Combination - James L. Cook. 1 3/8" high x 7/16" body diameter x 3/32" pin length (Actual: 1.385" high x .437" body diameter x .095 pin length" deep). All brass construction. It works exactly like the original whereby each of the 5 pinned wheels must be turned left, center, or right in the correct order to unlock the shackle. When unlocked the body drops down and allows the shackle to be hinged opened. The only thing ommitted was the changable combo function. The orginal could be taken apart and the stack changed to another order. This is a miniature rendering of James L. Cook Patent # 1196844. Designed by: Gene Baxter. Mfg by: Gene Baxter, January 2009.
Only 5 of these locks were made.

The lock functions exactly like the full sized version, whereby you need to align three dials correctly to unlock it. After the dials are aligned the group of dials drops down allowing the shackle to be turned 90 degrees. There are false gates to frustrate lock pickers This is a miniature rendering of Jerome W. Packard Patent # 550641. Designed by: Gene Baxter. Mfg by: Gene Baxter, July 2013.
