History of Locks
Did you know? Some of the very first locks were crafted from wood and used in Iran from year 722 to year 705 BCE. Metal locks were utilized sometime between 870-900 and were likely created by an excellent English craftsman. However, Romans claim first in the race for a grooved lock. This unique lock design features a barrier which blocks an incorrect key from fitting into or turning in the lock itself. Improving the level of safety and security should someone try their luck at picking the lock. During the 14-17 century time period, both artistic and increasingly useful locks came. Soon after, locksmiths began crafting locks with the architecture of the building in mind. Intricate lock grooves and key dimples became part of locks. Locksmiths began creating masterpieces that were not actual locks but put on display.
