The Aubin Trophy get’s it’s name from Charles Aubin who manufactured locks, he was a locksmith.
In 1849 what became known as the Aubin Trophy surfaced and ended up being displayed at the great exhibition of 1851. Aubin used more than 3,000 parts in his chosen locks and connecting mechanisms.
Below is the original picture of the aubin trophy.
Each lock could be opened or closed individually with its own key or all the locks could be operated together by a single lever arm at the top.
At the great exhibition in 1851 there was an American locksmith there called A.C Hobbs who insisted on buying the trophy.
In the end Hobbs Company called, Hobbs Hart was bought by Chubbs and the trophy went with them.
Chubbs have now changed their name to Chubbsafes; hence the trophy is now called Chubb Aubin Trophy.
Now it has been restored to it’s orginal glory.
