Good to know. Good idea with the magnet, too.

Do you know if that upper hole (under your magnet) has any particular use?

I far as I know, there is no discernible use for that hole. May be something that is used during the assembly process at the factory.

Possibily to squirt some lubricant... the lockset in my Scamp doesn't have that hole.

I'll take a look to see if mine has it. If it does, maybe that's where you're supposed to stash the nail or cotter pin when it's not being used as key!

RM,

You canít stash the pin in it as it is very shallow since the latch is right behind the hole.

I speculated that it may have been used when assembling the lock, and Donna D opined that it may have been used to lubricate the lock, but that her later model Scamp lock did not have the hole at all. However, we can let Glenn Baglo know what happens to the hole when the LockEZE is gone!
