(EN) – Lexicon of locks and keys | ASSA ABLOY


lexicon_24_small_eng.jpg

This section of the Historical Locks website covers over 200 industry and vernacular terms and definitions in the narrow field of locks and keys. Locking mechanisms often involve complex technology that we rarely consider in everyday life. But suppose you want to talk about the details of a lock? What are all these locks and their parts called? Sometimes you have to choose from several designations – which one is right, what does the word mean and where does it come from?
There are so many words and expressions related to locks and their parts that I must occasionally use images to distinguish between terms. The definitions of specific types of locks include links to the pages where they are described. Everything is in chronological order.
