Capt.dunc, that was AWESOME!
The explainations were so easy to understand and the
pictures helped a huge deal too.

The link as well that you gave is great too. Thanks.

Mad Mick, those pictures are fantastic.

Digital Blue, I can't wait to see them all put together.


And thanks. It makes me think that there is more security
in one of the old intricate warded locks, than my dodgy deadbolt.

Benroy44, I think that there is definately a market for that sort of
thing, and they would probably cost a fortune to buy, too.
I say, go for it.

WOW!!!!! what a very interesting read. very informative and easy to follow. I woudln't be at all supprised if this type of system is brought back in some form or another as the big manufacturers seem to have run out of ideas a bit with regards to lever lock security. and as some have mentioned it does in this day offer a greater level of security now than when these warded type lock were in common use.
