Any know where to get a key for this type of lock?
If you don't have the key you're probably not supposed to be in there.
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
think Semtex makes one, believe model # is DE-TCO-RD.
I got nothing, sorry.
I have one. It looks ike this:
Where is this demark? It could very well not be your property.
For example. Telephone demarks have a Telco side and a Customer side. The Telco side is locked and customers are not supposed to access it.
This works on the boxes installed by Cox around my parts: http://www.solidsignal.com/prod_display.asp?PROD=SGGTT7
As will one of these across the interlocking hinge on top of the plastic box:
This could get interesting...
Tampering with the Cable Co's side of the demarc could be grounds for some legal troubles. That will of course depend on your local laws, etc.
It's locked for a reason, YOU ARE NOT supposed to be in there.
All kidding aside, in our neighborhood, the builder installed similar boxes on the houses, but that actual “legal” demarc is an in-ground junction box at curbside. Basically, the boxes on our houses were just a convenient way to home-run all the indoor cable to a splitter. I have long since replaced those feeds with a singe feed into my attic that then branches out to all my new RG6 wiring (in place of the old RG59). I left the box there just so any future ‘cable guys” won’t be confused.
I assume the OP’s reason for wanting to get inside this box is to connect the sat feeds to the existing wiring. While there would be legal issues in tampering with the cable company’s wiring, the inside wiring belongs to the homeowner. If the wiring can’t be extracted without opening the box, the “right” thing to do would be to call the cabelco to open it so the household feeds can be removed and rerouted to the sat system.
I am the KSO for the Property....i have contracts for right to be in it.....please provide answers and not rules.....And the standard locking terminal is too big for this lock.
We provide rules cause many people do not know and do not have proper authority to enter those boxes. Many are the property of the cable companies and only they have the right to be in them.
okay....then why in the heck are you asking us then?
Maybe you should be asking whoever installed the box and/or whoever owns the property ... to GIVE YOU the key ... instead of an internet forum.
Or are you asking how you can make a DUPLICATE key of the one you currently have ... in which case again, you should probably be asking the company who installed the box for some spare keys to give your employees.
From the scratches I can assume channel locks were not successful?
can you get a more complete picture of this? we had to deal with something with similar looking lock at a hangar I worked at, but I need to see the exterior and hinge area.
I'm trying to remember what we did did, but hoping pic of the hinge area will trigger my memory.
no guarantees, it was 5 years ago.
this is a thick casting box correct?
it's called a plunger key and they cost about $15, you can buy them from several sources
