Kenyon "AKENCO"
This close up shows the locking mechanism from inside. The Kenyon patent claims the lock is designed to prevent unauthorised access to the interior. Perhaps the theft of paraffin from unguarded lamps was so great during the 1950s' (remember few had centrally heated homes, so paraffin heaters were common and paraffin was in much wider use than today) led Kenyon to develop this simple device.
