Can someone please point me in the direction of a supplier of replacement lock & hasp for a hard leather briefcase.
The preference would be brass with a combination lock.
It is a repair for a close friend, so I don't want to fail on this.
Thanks,
Geoff

The best source to try in the U.S. is Ohio Travel Bag.

You may also need a spacer under the lock to bring it up to the height of the hasp because the replacement lock may not be as thick as the original. At least that's the experience I've had with some old Brooks Bros. cases.

Thanks Kevin,
To make the job complete, I think that I will replace the hasps as well.

I emailed Ohio but got no response - may be they will not ship to UK!!
Their website has no prices
