I have an Americans gumball machine and I do not have the key! I have looked everywhere for a lock and key to fit my Americans machine ,but no luck! Help!


      Post a picture of the machine (that shows the lock) if you get a chance so we can tell what kind of a lock it has. It is probably a plug lock that screws down on top but I will need to see it to be sure. I have never heard of an "Americans" gumball machine. I found a website: https://www.antiquegumball.com/  that is called The American Gumball Machine company but they appear to be a reseller and not a manufacturer. They do sell locks/keys on that site but the prices are outrageous. If it is just a plug lock then this is a better cite to buy the locks from: https://www.gumballstuff.com/

     The owner is a member here, the prices are very reasonable and they are excellent to deal with.

It is an Amerivend machine!

Does it look like this? If so, it will use a standard plug type lock that screws down on the center post. The only issue is that this is not really a common machine so I don't know the proper depth (length) of the lock you need to buy. You can call Steve (Gumballstuff.com) at 574-935-4800 (the number is also on the website) and ask him if he knows what lock would work best for that brand.
