Morphy-Richards Clydon Tubular Doorbells Model T.U. 100

Morphy-Richards is a leading marketer of appliances in the the UK best known for electric kettles, blankets and light-weight clothes irons. In the 1950s Morphy-Richards marketed the Clydon Line of door chimes including the T.U.100 long bell model. Morphy-Richards distributed door chimes worldwide.

A variation on this model was available as the T.B. 101, a battery operated chime with a unique compartment between the two tubes that housed four D cell batteries, formerly known as U2 batteries in Europe.

This example was found in severely neglected condition. ElectraChime carefully restored the mechanism and fitted a new solenoid plunger and bells to factory specifications. Clydon chimes are particularly well made featuring a sophisticated scheme for adjusting the strike of the bells, a copper clad solenoid winding and elegant electrical terminals.

  1. I have one of these in our home in Melbourne Australia. The house was finished around 1950-1951.

    The doorbell still works! We love it. Is it valuable?

    Best wishes,

    Richard

  2. I have just had Morphy Richards Clydon chimes removed from wall during renovations. In the process I lost the armature/plunger, that’s the one moving part. I’d like to get a replacement. Does anyone know the exact dimensions of the original?

  3. Hi, I have the exact same model as in the picture with silver, not brass tubes. It has been on the wall in our house for 17 years, it used to work however has not been used since disconecting the door bell 16 years ago. I am trying to get it to work again, there is an electrical current running live still from the transformer to the unit with a live wire running from it to where the doorbell used to be.

    I have connected a new doorbell but alas, it will not operate, any help would be much appreciated in restoring it to it’s former glory.

    Best regards

    • Hello Mark, I sent some instructions via email. I’ve never seen a Clydon with silver colored tubes, please send a photo of your chime when you get it going again. Thanks.
