Seattle Locksmith - Antique Locks

Seattle And Your Antique Locks
While a modern security system may be completely electronic, the history of locks and keys goes back to ancient times. Antique locks may use elaborate systems of tumblers, wards, and levers, that would not rotate unless their mechanisms were adjusted and tripped in the proper order. This made it difficult for someone to use an improper key to trip the levers within, and in effect the same concept it used today in even high tech locks. Without the proper signals from a key, the lock won’t open.

The similarities don’t end there, but antique locks have a long history. In the past, the use of skeleton keys or similar keys made keeping a lock secure an imperfect art. Now, it is rare to find someone with the proper keys or equipment to intrude on an antique lock, which can make them useful beyond their aesthetic and cultural appeal.

The expert locksmiths at Seattle Locksmith know locks, and that includes antique locks that may use older delicate systems. It doesn’t matter if your lock is brand new, or an heirloom from another time, Seattle Locksmith is able to repair your lock so that it will work for selected keys.
