History of Locks

Locks have been a part of our lives for the last 4,000 years. Some of the first lock were discovered by archeologist in the Nineveh regions, which date back as far as 4,000 years. Some of the first types of locks used a similar system that we still use today. Known as the pin tumbler. The original locks consisted of a large peace of wood with several holes and points on the end, which was passed through a hole in the door and inserted into the lock located at the rear of the door which prevented the lock from opening. Since then locks have improved dramatically and have evolved into small metal keys with micro chips imbedded into them which have the ability to be tracked and their uses recorded or limited electronically by the push of a button! 

Today locks have become some what routine as to their designs and applications and installations, because of building regulations and fire regulations as well as mass productions, this has lead the decline of old fashion hand made locks and old fancy innovative designs that once were around. Today we use a verity of locks for home and commercial applications which have improved on the old designs. The common lock recoding or replacement parts are now possible and ordered with little fuss compared with having parts made by hand. We have come a long way in the security industry and now not only do the locks meet a level of standards so do the locksmiths who service and install them!
