The fact is that we have compiled the list of the ten strangest locks offered by the world.
These are actual devices that you or the citizens of history could use to protect their valuables.
This list has a real smorgasbord of various locks, and it has everything from centuries-old locks to technology that has just come out in the past year.
Some of these designs are confusing, while others are puzzles.
These locks are so strange that you can not understand them only with a picture.
To really understand what happens to these unique contractions, you need a video and some explanation.
So, without further ado, here are 10 of the strangest locks we have ever found.
This Indian-made padlock requires users to know a few tricks in order to open it.
You must remove the bolt from the lock’s body, and you must turn the key to the 9 o’clock position.
After all that funding, the key will still need to be inserted.
Internal locking parts use a lever system, which may vary in quality depending on the manufacturer, but lifting it will not do you any good without first preparing the key.
Convenience is not great due to the necessary access to the back of the lock needed to unscrew the rounded bolt.
Also, the key cover rises quite a bit from the lock’s body, so it will not retain all the dirt and grime.
It is more kinky than practical.
Just looking at this lock, you know it’s weird.
The form of the device is what gives it the name of Dumbbell Magnification.
It does not look so practical due to its size, but you can use it in several ways.
Just like any other padlock, you can set it with a hash or chain.
With the right size door, you can also keep a pair of double doors closed.
This particular dumbbell lock’s huge size will also prove to be a wheel lock for your engine.
As for the key, it is also extraordinary.
The 5-sided judo keychain puts it above the standard unusualness of cross locks.
Of course, you can pick it, but it has all the wonders to offer to the world.
It is a fact that the Nokē padlock is a keyless lock.
The company was so proud that they named their product Noki, which is pronounced Keyless.
So how do you open it?
Well, you can open it with a smartphone or tablet.
With Bluetooth alerts and a downloadable app, you’ll never look for the key again.
But smart locks are not so strange.
What is weird about this lock is that it can be set to open with Morse code.
Press the shaft with differentiated applications for short and long pressure, and the lock will open to the right.
There is no key lock, but there is a port at the bottom.
You can use this to start the lock when the battery dies by touching a new battery to the terminal.
You may think it is magnetic because there are no visible cross-sections on the open shackles.
But he really uses ball bearings (so he can not easily bang).
The locking dog is so far in the body that the cutting of the shackles is imperceptible.
Lily Water Padlock
These Lily Voda padlocks have all sorts of exciting body shapes, but the really weird part of them is their key path.
It is a four-sided pattern in the form of a cross, with a pronounced curvature of each side hole.
Although the key now has a wheel shape, initially, those soft curves where there are hard turns.
This gave the lock the form of a swastika, which in the Buddhist and Hindu markets was intended to mean “all” or even “eternity” in Sanskrit.
Not only is it strange for its unintentional work, but the lock uses a system of holes instead of the basic pin drum in the basic cruciform style.
This results in a strange appearance of the key that ends with the arrival of an exercise.
Also, you can only insert the key in one way. This means that all pins are active.
The crazy lock is undoubtedly more of a puzzle than a practical one in its possible use.
You can easily identify this padlock as out of the norm with a fairly large bolt lying between the shackle’s two arms.
There is also no key route.
The way of opening is by turning the lock so that the screw can move freely.
Pull it halfway, then turn the puzzle so that it locks in if pushed too far up or down.
Tighten the screw slightly halfway, then it will lock in the middle position, and you can open the lock.
It’s a weird lock, of course, but it may not be the best use for your security needs.
Opening this lock will surely give people a headache, but it will not oppose most criminals.
1800’s Viennese Cover Lock
If you want to get a lot of innovative lock designs, antique padlocks are a great place to look.
Before the public was satisfied with the rolling pin’s standard designs, the locksmiths tried a few strange things.
In this case, the lock was likely made more than 200 years ago, so you know there are a few tricks on the sleeves.
In the case of locking the lid from Vienna, there are several spring panels.
One completely hides the key. By applying pressure to the bottom of the board, the key is visible.
Then you need to insert the key.
Once the key is fully turned and the dog locks are removed from the road, the lock is still secure.
You will then need to move the panel on the back of the lock to the side and pull the shackle up at the same time.
Such weird maneuvers are required, but what is crazy is that the lock still works so well after 200 years.
New Gulshan Padlock
It is a well-known fact that when you get a padlock with a key and a key, the way to enter looks pretty clear.
But if you simply insert the key into the New Gulshan padlock, nothing will happen.
No matter how you rotate or push on the lock body, the lock will never open this way.
This is because the displayed key does not communicate with the levers at all.
Any attempt to select a lock via this keychain will be in vain.
But what should you do instead of pressing a small button on the lock using the long thin protrusion of the button?
Simply using bare hands will not be enough.
It would help if you used a small tool.
The moment the button is pressed correctly, the spring door will open, revealing the right key.
You can then use the key to turn in this hole.
Very awkward and a weird lock.
LIKE Gear Shift Lock
This lock, made by the manufacturer, LIKE, aims to lock the car’s transmission.
The price of a manual transmission is quite rare but still more common than this strange lock.
Hostility begins with considering the key.
They look like miniature wrench cards with small rectangular holes and recesses punched into the thin metal.
In total, the lock has 16 active elements.
And we say elements because the pin as internal components is undoubtedly not pins or wafer in any classical sense of the word.
One of the ways you know the lock is unique is because it is marked with all sorts of copyright warnings.
The lock should enter the mainstream because people are infringing on its patents, so it is no wonder that there are no locks that will likely use this system.
In case you put this on your car, no one will bypass it or take it because they would not know what is going on in this crazy lock.
Saint Fire Corkscrew Padlock
When you see the key to this lock, you know you have entered the realm of strangeness.
The keys of these padlocks are threaded like the screw key system used in the ancient Slavic padlocks.
However, the strangeness does not end with the use of outdated technology.
For added unusualness, the key also has holes cut in the spiral grooves.
By turning the key in the key, you have started the insertion process.
You must utterly bend it in place, and then the last rotation will release the shackles.
This is different from the original screw bolt system, which worked similarly to modern pipe locks.
Light the Fire captures the resurgence of old technology mixed in a way that makes it new again.
The fact that this is never caught is not surprising, just because it looks weird, definitely an incredibly twisted key.
Three Key Puzzle lock
To open this padlock, you will need to use three different keys.
True, this can be bypassed-but not unless you’re a techie who knows what he’s doing.
We can easily say that the lock does not even look like a lock.
In appearance, it is closer to decorative antiquity.
This is mainly due to the shape lock and the lack of a key.
To open it, start using the square hole wrench to unscrew the long protrusion at the lock’s bottom.
Once this is removed, insert the same key into the new opening.
As you are continuing to turn the key, the lock will expand, revealing a new keyhole.
However, do not worry about it.
You need to insert another key into another hole that opens on the side of the lock.
You need to screw this key into the side hole until it stops.
Now you can place the last key in the last hole of the key.
Finish half a turn in the key, and the shackle will loosen.
Nothing gets weirder than that, people.
The Bottom Line
From all that we have said and all that this guide, which results from our team’s exceptional research, has shown us, we can conclude that there have never been more ways to unlock than today.
Whether it is antique technology, crazy designs, or even tile tiles, you can use them to give you peace of mind.
The practicality and security of each of these locks will likely vary.
Make sure you consider all of your options before choosing the right lock for your security needs.
For collectors, you can not go wrong with these security oddities.
