Rare Antique NIX PIX Brass High Security Padlock Two Operating & Withdrawal Keys


Item History and Pricing
Information:
Original Description:
Up for auction is an extremely rare set of the high security Nix Pix padlock with its two original keys. It is in excellent condition, with beautiful patina, and no problem at all. Both keys work the lock smoothly. Shackle has strong spring tension. Brass body, steel shackle.
The padlock is marked "NIX-PIX Deutsch Lock System Hammond, Indiana" and number "4". The operating key has an aluminum handle and is marked "Arlo Super-Lock" and number "4". Once turned, the shackle pops open. ...The withdrawal key has a brass handle and is marked "Deutsch Lock System" and the initial "W" on the other side. Turn the withdrawal key so that the dot on the core lines up with the dot on the lock case; then, pull the key out and the core falls out easily.
The Nix Pix mechanism is very complex and ingenious. The original core has eight numbered sliders corresponding to the eight numbered key bits. Each lock slider and key bit can be reset to a new position (out of 4). It is a changeable padlock with changeable bit keys. I attached a photo of the instructions on how to achieve that. 
The Nix Pix mechanism rarely comes in the padlock form. And it is exceedingly rare to find the original withdrawal key with it. With the withdrawal key, you will be able to study the lock core at length. Very intricate and well made.
This padlock with the NIX-PIX DEUTSCH marking is the earlier (and more well made) version of the lock. Later on, it was sold to Solon Super Lock Co, and their lock cylinders were die cast, as opposed to machined brass like this one. This version is rarer too.
Padlock's size is 3" high x 1 13/16" wide.
The Nix Pix padlock incorporates 3 important lock designs: the Bramah mechanism, the Best interchangeable core and changeable bit key. Here is an incredible opportunity to own a COMPLETE set of Nix Pix padlock and keys! You will likely not find a better example.
Auction starts with no reserve. Please pay within 3 days of auction end.On May-26-19 at 19:10:03 PDT, seller added the following information:I posted a video on youtube showing how the lock operates and how to change the core. Please take a look:
