The Art of Locksmiths (Various Types of Locksmith)
Locks and keys have been around for a long time. Early locks and keys from long ago were very large and designed differently than the locks you see now days. They were made of wood and some had movable pins that locked doors. Now days we would know these locks as the modern pin tumbler that we use today. Some locks long ago that were used by the Greek fastened a wood bolt and staple to the inside of the door. A key of wood or iron shaped like a sickle lifted the bolt. It was not known as being a very secure form of lock like the locks we have today.The Romans were the first to produce the first metal lock. They made pins of different shapes with keys and keyholes. Some of the keys that they designed had interesting designs such as birds or other designs on them. The Romans invented ward locks. These locks had projections around the keyhole so the lock could not be turned without using the right key. However, this type of lock was found to be easy to pick. There were many thieves and burglars a long time ago because of the lack of good security. Long ago, back in the fourteenth century if you wanted to be accepted as a master locksmith by the guild you had to provide a working lock and key. There was much corruption when the guild gained control over locksmith with setting the techniques and cost. This made it where the locks were to be displayed and not for installation. There were some locks and keys that were considered to be very attractive that were made with no advances in security.In the nineteen forties locksmiths were considered to be very important with the onset of the Second World War. During this time the locksmiths that were in business focused mostly on the war. There were a great deal of locksmiths that were placed into war because of being drafted. The locksmiths that were not drafted into war continued along with their work during this time. The locksmiths of today do things such as repairing, maintaining, installing and selling locks and other devices that deal with security. They also copy, replace keys and are very handy at opening locks. Locksmiths have skills that are needed each and every day all over the world.
