    Replacement bowls and keys of the suitcases

    In less than 30 seconds you give it for complete.

    Now I have taken out the bowlers again to do the test and it took me 20 seconds.

    As you well know, since you have had the bowler hats in hand, you will remember that at the end of the bowler hat it has some U-type protrusions, but no more fastening, or screws or anything. which means that they have to leave without difficulty pulling upwards and with the key inside.

    The method is the following:
    You insert the key in its corresponding cylinder, turn the key until its final travel, that is, to the point that the handle of the suitcase opens as if we wanted to take the suitcase, once the key is in its total travel and the handle is fully open , we hold the tab of the closure with a tool, for example with a screwdriver as I put in the photo. Once with the tornavis, the tongue is well fastened. We pull the key together with the cylinder upwards, since it is inserted in its cylinder. With our fingers we are holding the cylinder with the key so that the key does not come out of the cylinder and does not leave us in work half-done.

    Once the cylinder with its key is out, we can remove the key from the cylinder.

    Important!
    When we have the bowler hat outside its accommodation, we must look at the position that the bowler hat was in its housing, since if not, it will be impossible for us to put it back into its accommodation.

    To insert the new cylinder, we take the new one and put the key inside it and do the reverse operation to its extraction. We insert inwards the closing tab of the suitcase inwards and fasten it again with the tornavis, this what it will do is place the mechanism of the inner cylinder in a straight position so that it allows passage to the 2 protrusions type U of the cylinder. We introduce the bowler inwards until it reaches its position and we already have it.

    I reiterate. Remember the position in which we extracted the old cylinder, if we look through the walls of the cylinder, we will see that on the one hand it has a hole and on the other it does not.

    I hope this helps to lose the fear of having to replace the bowlers one day.

    Correct position to extract the cylinder with the same key

    The images help us understand perfectly, since there are several ways to call screwdrivers.

    I just tried this method, which would be fantastic - if it worked,
    but I can NOT get the Lock cylinders out from either the Pannier or Top Box ?

    And fixings and fasteners are known as bolts and screws here in the US. :028:
