The Lock Blog

Welcome to The Lock BlogWe here at Bright Lock and Key decided to add a section about all the new and interesting locks that are coming out.  Partly because we want to show you all the expensive locks that you should buy from us, but mostly because we like different, and we thought that you might as well.  

Every couple of weeks I am going to post a new and interesting lock. It will include a pic and description of what it is and what makes it the most awesome thing you've seen since green mustard.  If you happen to run across a fun and interesting lock on your internet adventures then send us an email about it. There is an email form on our contact page.

So check back about 20 times a day, not because my number of internet hits puts me higher on the google charts, but because you never know when i might just post the next lock you can't live without.

Secret knock unlocker

 Just when you thought that machines could not take any more jobs. Well I have bad news Mr. guy who opens the door at secret underground clubs and illegal meeting places, oh and that guy in the Matrix that is watcing out for agent Smith.  This clever guy has designed a rather amazing and impressive two in one lock. Not only is it the only machine that I know of that opens locks based on the sound of a knock, but it is also the most ugly lock I know of. 

So the good news is that you can now watch the video to entertain yourself for the next several minutes. The bad news is that all of you that are going for that cool tech, I make cool things out of things I got at radio shack and the plumbing section at Home Depot, Macgyver look will probably not be able to buy one. It pretty much looks like he is not going to put it into production any time soon.

I don't really think you would want this to be very wide spread anyway. I mean I imagine that everyone would use one of five different knocks. Kind of how everyone uses the word password for their password. OK, I will wait while you change your password now. All you would have to do is go try the couple different knocks and one of them would be sure to work. So all those wondering starving drummer music types would be the new non-starving, watching your new plasma tv types. I also Imagine it would cause a large problem in the Parrot owners community. Those dumb birds can never keep a secret. They would be singing your knock to everyone in town.

Well I guess It was wise to only make one. I did see he has incorporated it into a gum ball machine now. That is something a little more worthy of the knock knock security. Well thanks for reading the lock blog. Don't worry next time I will try to write about something that you can buy from me so that I have lots of money and you have awesome locks.

Instead he will use long, narrow, needle-shaped tools with a hook on the end to catch tumblers inside the lock and move them into the unlock position. Each tumble must be moved to its unlocked position for the lock to open. Sometimes a locksmith will make a duplicate of the key on site by using tools that determine the shapes of the cutouts that would match the key and the lock tumblers. Sometimes the locksmith may have to drill out the old lock and then replace it with a new one.
