  • Patent number: 4211096
    Abstract: The automobile security lock is of the kind having a body in which is rotatable a cylinder having pistons radially movable therein by a cylindrical key having notches formed therein. The body also has pistons which cooperate with the pistons in the cylinder. The pistons of the cylinder are slidable into radial cylindrical bores formed in the cylinder. Likewise the pistons in the body slide into radial slots in the body. On entry of the correct key the external extremities of the cylinder pistons lie flush with the external surface of the cylinder in such a manner as to permit rotation of the cylinder in relation to the body. However, on entry of an incorrect key where the corresponding notch is either insufficiently deep or too deep the extremities of the cylinder pistons enter said radial slots in said body or the internal extremities of the body pistons said radial bores in the cylinder to effect locking of the cylinder in relation to the body.

  • Patent number: 4179789
    Abstract: A piston-type safety lock device, of the type comprising a cylindrical rotor journalled in a cavity of a stator. Said rotor contains a plurality of radially slidable pistons cooperating at their inner end with the notches of a key for bringing their other end flush with the periphery of said rotor. Said other end bears against the inner surface of the cavity in which the rotor is journalled and, for one angular position of the rotor, against pistons slidable in the stator and elastically biased toward the rotor. Said pistons of the stator and rotor are flat blanked members. Said pistons are disposed respectively in a single slot of the stator and in a single slot of the rotor and have rectilinear and parallel lateral edges which are in contact with the lateral edge of an adjacent piston or the end of said slot.

  • Patent number: 4176867
    Abstract: The locking cap for fuel tanks is provided with electro-mechanical locking means whereby the cap can be unlocked by remote control. The cap comprises a body member having a lid pivotable thereon. A spring-urged pivotable locking device on said body engages a spindle attached to the underside of the lid to hold the latter in a locked position. A spring-urged locking slider engageable with a stop formed on said locking device is controlled by a pair of pivoted armatures which are articulated to said slider.On energization of a U-shaped electromagnet attracting the armatures the latter effect disengagement of the slider from the locking device which releases the spindle thus unlocking the lid.

  • Patent number: 4143528
    Abstract: The device serves to lock the locking bolt of a cylinder lock in its locking position when an unauthorized removal of the locking cylinder is effected. A lever mounted with the housing of the cylinder lock rests against a portion of the locking cylinder which effects swivelling of the lever upon the removal of the locking cylinder. The locking bolt is lockable by a locking piece which is spring-loaded in the direction of the locking position and is held in the unlocking position by the lever in the non-swivelled state thereof. The locking piece is released when the lever has been swivelled by the locking cylinder.

  • Patent number: 4132151
    Abstract: For milling a control groove in a vehicle safety key there is used a motor-driven milling head connected by a linkage such as a pantograph to a tracer member. The tracer member follows a template groove. Since it is desired to vary the shape of the groove the template groove of the present invention is formed in sections on a plurality of strips some or all of the strips carrying several groove sections, said strips being shiftable in relation to each other so as to join up selected sections of the strips to form a single groove.

  • Patent number: 4052869
    Abstract: A cylinder lock, particularly useful as a vehicle steering lock, of which the barrel is axially slidable between an outer, locked position and an inner position in which the barrel can be rotated by an appropriately coded key. Insertion of a key into the key passage of the barrel when the barrel is in the outer position is prevented by closure elements which are displaced by the leading end of the key, axial movement of the barrel from the outer to the inner position occurring during such displacement.

  • Patent number: 4025740
    Abstract: An anti-theft safety device for an automobile vehicle comprising a lock having a rotatable barrel cooperating with a key which has a cylindrical body and is provided with a driver of non-circular cross-sectional shape which cooperates with a cavity of complementary shape formed in the barrel. Said barrel actuates, in the course of its rotation, means for locking at least one device essential for the operation of the vehicle and means for closing electric circuits. A rotatable electric switch is provided therein which is driven by cooperation of an opening of the switch with a driver, of complementary profile, on the key, the last-mentioned driver having sufficient length to continue to cooperate with said opening when the key has been partially extracted from the barrel and the driver for the barrel no longer drives the barrel.
