I think I could cut that lock with my safety-scissors. :)

I have developed a small collection of phone locks. Some came on phones, some came in a lot of phone stuff and  I purchased some.
The 2 on the left are cradle locks which keep the plungers depressed, the big one on the bottom stays on the cradle and the key lets you lift the cover to release the plungers. Also I have a few of the upper beige ones for sale! The center 2 are for touch-tone keys, they clamp on the push buttons, very medieval clamps! The ones on the right are the normal locks that go in the #1 finger hole.

I guess those locks go to show that not everything in the good old days were cheap.
