I am new to pay phone repair which is to say, I don't know much about them. I just acquired an old phone booth with an Automatic Electric payphone. Someone has worked on this phone before and I have no key for the cash box or the main body of the phone, however the main body has been removed some how. I need to get keys for this if possible. I'm hoping some one can help me with this and also how to work on this as some wires have been disconnected and I don't know where they go. Are there repair manuals out there for these phones? Thank you to anyone out there that is willing to take the time to help me out.


Right now there are several auctions with AE pay phone keys and many with parts.
Or you can try here.

I thonk you need a T key for the body and the vault, mine came without any locks however - so the T key opens bioth.
"now this should take five minutes, where's me screwdriver went now..?"


I'm not sure if the payphone has been identified as a "Single Slot" or Triple Slot" payphone yet....big difference. A "T Key" is needed with the newer "Single Slot" type payphones only.
