Did you know that the earliest attempts at securing items, before the now-common tumbler locks, were various knots in rope. Knots like the thief knot or the gordian knot allowed sailors and others to secure their belongings and detect if they had been tampered with.

Education Is Key

Locksmiths are very educated! They combine the trades of a carpenter, mechanic, machinist, and security expert.

Custom Keys

Keys can be double sided or four sided for extra security, depending what you prefer.

The Royal Treatment

King Louis the XVI was a Locksmith who acquired his skills out of pure interest and often duplicated keys for fun.

The Ancients

The ancient Egyptians made the first recorded wooden lock, the oldest lock in history is over 4,000 years old.
