The purpose of this site is to be a virtual repository to preserve the history of Padlocks and Locking Devices, and to rediscover the history which has been lost. From the technical underpinnings of the earliest locking device, to the most sophisticated modern device, draws a roadmap of historical significance. David J. Heuermann ... March 2001.
