Today I’m going to post on some common key anatomy and nomenclature. I understand that this isn’t incredibly riveting information to most of you. For those of you with an interest in locks and lock defeat, however, this is very important groundwork. This post should serve as a useful reference for some of those future posts, as well as posts on securing your locks from various defeats.
I recently spent a few days in Seattle on business and ended up with a free day. I hoped to see (among other things) a few interesting locks on Lock Safari: Seattle and I wasn’t disappointed.
I recently had the chance to spend a few days in New York, New York. This was a personal trip, and I covered a lot of ground. This time, I actually managed to focus on the locks I saw, and I saw some good ones on Lock Safari NYC. I noticed some interesting things about New York’s locks.
I recently had the opportunity to explore another city in my search for rare and interesting locks. Lock Safari Salt Lake City took me through quite a few neighborhoods over a long weekend. Over three days a friend and I covered the Marmalade, 9th and 9th, Temple Square/Downtown, and Sugar House areas of SLC. I found quite a few interesting locks, but not as many as I expected from a city of this size.
I recently had the opportunity to spend an extended weekend in Vancouver, BC. While there, I indulged my desire to run around the city and its seedier parts to look for interesting locks. “Lock Safari Vancouver” was a success – I found some very interesting stuff! This post will be divided into two parts. This first half will cover the more “pedestrian” Abloy, ASSA, and Medeco products. Part II will cover the more odd and interesting.
