Where It All Began
The First Locks
Locks are believed to have originated in Egypt about 4000 years ago. The first ones were made of wood and they were extremely large. They were placed vertically on the door post. Movable pins in the lock fit into the crosswise bolt of the lock, and when the key was placed in the lock and pushed up, the pins were released and the door opened.
The Arrival Of Metal Locks
Between 870 to 900 AD, the first metal locks were created. It is believed that Englishmen were the first to make them. They were just bolts made of iron with obstructions around the keyhole to keep thieves from breaking in. Wards or obstructions had been used centuries before in locks made of wood.
American locksmithing did not really take off until after the birth of our nation. Before then, American locks closely followed English examples. In the first half of the 19th century, Linus Yale, Sr, patented a well-received lock with pin-tumble mechanism. It was patterned after an Ancient Egyptian lock. He went on to specialize in locks for banks.
