Variously known as the D-117, the K4, or just the "Chinese Army Key" these heavy duty straight keys were made for the Chinese Peoples' Liberation Army (PLA) in factories owned by the PLA, from the early 1960s to the present time. The Chinese phrase on the key's nameplate "changshu dianxun qichai chang" translates as "Changshu Telecommunication Equipment Factory," which was the last of several factories to make telegraphic equipment.
