Anyone in the Wellington region use one of these? Looking to borrow a key, unlock mine (hard disk has died) and then return it to you. Somehow they keys to mine have totally disappeared and my safe-cracking ability using a paper-clip appears to be sadly lacking. I believe the key is common to all.

Keys are pretty basic, we've gone to customers sites to work on their hp servers and found they've lost the keys.
Just get a few that are similar style of key and try.
We have found a few that work.

Yes I disregarded the drilling option. 
Probably the wrong time of year to be asking the question. Even geeks need to see some sun cool

Just an update on this this and praise for a job well done. Took the MicroServer into Armstrong's Locksmiths in Johnsonville, Wellington who had the lock open in about 60 seconds and charged me nothing. Even swapped the lock mechanism around so I can't accidentally lock it in future. If you need a locksmith, I can't recommend them highly enough smile
