Added Number to Vacuums


I added numbers to my vacuums and also recorded the serial numbers today.  I should have done this yesterday but I forgot.  The Police officer said that I needed the serial number to report an item stolen and the numbers on the vacuums will help with finding the serial numbers.

LAI lock install


Second try on the Fragramatics vacuum Van Lock replacements.  This time I purchased LAI series 500 locks that can be installed left and right and the key can be pulled out!  (The fist picture shows the Van lock and the second picture shows the LAI 500 lock.)

LAI lock install


I ordered a couple LAI locks to check them out and ended up ordering the wrong kind.  I ordered the B622F 600 series high security cam locks that can fit the cylinder locks that I also ordered.  But with the high security locks you can not remove the key when the lock is unlocked,  it has to be in the locked position to remove the key.  This feature is really crappy because the Fragramatics vacuum has 3 locks on the door so I would need 3 keys to open the door, not cool.  So I am going to have to purchase some 500 series cam locks, but the 500 series can turn right and left where the high security can only do one or the other, which is good.  Wow what a pain.

Fragramatics vacuum / Van Lock key problem


My Van Lock key for my Fragramatics vacuum self destructed today.  Looks like the screw in the key was loose and when I turned the key the top piece fell off?  This has never happened before and is really great because I do not have an extra key.  So I will be ordering new locks and breaking into my own equipment!

Vacuum motor gasket problem


I was having a problem with my vacuum not working correctly and I could not figure it out.  The motor gasket was really flattened so I replaced it and the vacuum seems to work a lot better now.
