Does anyone have an old blue shorrock for sale for about 20 to 30 quid?

Only ever seen them on buildings, did once have a BNIB Initial Shorrock box but I sold it a while ago :(

 

That said since then I've picked up a proper old metal Chubb in reasonable condition, seen better, seen much worse, and that BNIB Modern Alarms hex so I'm not too sad*

 

Would love a white square dome style Securicor Granley still in the box!

 

*insert own disclaimer here


So, I've decided to take my work back underground.... to stop it falling into the wrong hands

I's guess the one in the picture is a decoy

 

GRP cover with Blue plastic coated steel bracket,

 

I've removed dummies but never a live one

Tried to remove a live one once, took about an hour with a claw hammer.

So basically they look like a DIY shop (of the day) box but under the skin they are actually a lot better made than that?

 

Just noticed there is one on the back of an old Fyne Fayre in our high street that's now a DIY shop

Sorry I missed your post, the Chubb is a triangle type, but metal. In good condition for age but totally empty... It is so empty I do think it might always have been a dummy, but hard to tell with these older boxes sometimes, not all had special dummy brackets...
