    Locksmith tool?

    Found this in a backroom of my basement. Appreciate any thoughts.

    4 3/4 long. 16th thick.
    The "pin" on the end is squared off and 3/16 long. Magnet does stick.
    Stamped "YALE 5400"

    Re: Locksmith tool?

    The previous owner had his own T.V./radio repair shop, doubt it has anything to do with that but who knows.
    (He ran his shop when tubes were still used)

    Seen an awful lot of odd-ball specialty tools that I can usually figure out but this one has me stumped. (if it is indeed, a tool.)

    Maybe the tool for removing rim cylinder type locks on commercial doors. I agree with Rando...er, Spooky that the Yale 5400 is a series of Yale brand locksets.

    Makes sense, perhaps a tool (spanner) to twist `n set the trim cap that sits against the door (between the door/knob)?

    yes some were used on the trim some on the knobs and some on the cylinder locks depends on the model if you can find the 5400 series service manual it will tell you witch part it was used on but it is a spanner(installation) wrench.

    I use one every day. It comes with a commercial lockset and the only part of the tool I really ever use is the small tip that is pushed into a small hole on the side of the handle to release the keeper.

    Thats correct, you push in the indent to remove the knob. Used to do this all the time until we switched to Medico.

    Pg 3 shows the indent and Pg 10 will explain that the spanner wrench for installation and removal is supplied with each case. http://www.yalecommercial.com/librar...logs/index.cfm

    I still have a couple of these from different manufactures in my tool box.

    If you find me upside down, Roll me over.

    Appreciate all the info, nice job everybody.

    Seems like a broken key to a lock . I think a locksmith can define it in a well manner.

    Re:Locksmith tool ?

    It certainly looks like a spanner wrench. It can be of use to a locksmith. Locksmiths need to be Experts in using their tools. A locksmith without any tools cannot accomplish his job by any means
