Why were locks invented and who influenced the idea of the design and manufacture?
Well, since the birth of modern civilization, ancestors from different locations around the world believed in keeping their belongings safe and for themselves. They figured out how to do this by molding mechanical devices, which were known as locks.
Even though we refer to these locks as mechanical, this does not mean that they were indeed mechanical. Instead, they were made from rope and various other materials. With the passing of time, however, human skills evolved and developed technology, which influenced the design of the modern lock we know today. Today the world believes that Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks were responsible for developing mechanical locks separately, but around the same time. The first locks were developed around 6,000 years ago.
