The Basics of How Locks Work
March 18, 2013 | Written by: Armstrong Security
Locks are a crucial component of your home’s security system. Understanding how they work can help you as you search for a lock that will best protect your home and possessions.
Most locks have four key parts: the plug, cylinder, pins, and springs. The cylinder is the central component that holds the pins and allows the key to be inserted. When you insert the proper key, the pins will line up and allow the plug to turn. For more of the basics on locks, watch this useful video from Expert Village.
