History of locks

Selesch Locksmith Munich

A real breakthrough came when locks began to be made of brass, as this was already suitable for series production. The twist-lock was invented in the eighteenth century and continues to be the basis of our lock structures to this day. American inventor and mechanical engineer Linus Yale invented the locking device where the doorknob can open the lock. He invented and patented the cylinder lock in 1861, (Selesch Locksmith Munich recommends that its proper maintenance not be neglected, otherwise the cylinder lock will break down much sooner). Then the latch and the sensor locks were also invented. It was a huge breakthrough when James Sargent invented the key changeable combination lock in 1873, Selesch Locksmith Munich also recommends this type of lock but do not forget to maintain or replace it properly before the problem occurs.

The Selesch Locksmith Munich does not deal with electronic locks, because they are very easy to hack, so we cannot guarantee security. We at Selesch Locksmith Munich observed that 50% of the callers got into trouble because the key is left inside the lock and the person requesting help is still stuck outside, so we at Selesch Locksmith Munich also undertake to replace locks.
