The History Of The Lock:

It comes as no surprise to hear that locks have indeed been around for many centuries. In fact, the first lock was recorded in history four millennia ago. Ironically, this is around the time when the first registered property rights was seen.
history of a lock

It would appear that property rights and locks go hand in hand. Somebody who owns something feels that they have the right to keep that to themselves. Hence, a Lock provides a unique way of keeping other people out, whilst allowing the owner to have access whenever they please.

Locks back in these days were not the same as they are today. They were made out of wood, and would be absolutely useless in today's modern world.

However, given the times, the devices were actually quite useful - and fulfiled their purpose the majority of the time.

Lock Pickers.

With the advent of locks came with the advent of lock pickers. These were people who were able to bust through the barriers imposed by locks and security devices, so that they could reach the other side of whatever was being protected, even if they were not authorised to do so.

Lock pickers soon became the bane of society, as they were able to defeat the purpose of locking things up and keeping them safe. This is still the case today, but on a more sophisticated level.
