How Locks Work

Mechanical Locks

Mechanical locks operate by means of one or more pieces of metal (tumblers, levers, or latches) falling into a slot in the bolt, preventing it from being moved. Most mechanical locks require the use of keys to open the lock. The proper key serrations that raise the metal pieces will allow the bolt to slide. Most locks are mechanical locks.
