Interesting Locksmith History
As a trusted locksmith serving the Hendersonville, North Carolina area, here at A. L. Odom Locksmiths, Inc., we are proud to be in one of the oldest professions. Did you know that this trade has been around for roughly 4,000 years? While it is true that what we think of as locks today are far different than they were back then, it is pretty interesting to realize that people have felt the need to secure their belongings for longer than you might expect.
We find that especially interesting considering how many older people say, “We never locked our doors back in the day! We had good neighbors!” as a slight to today’s crime rates. While that might have been true, and perhaps is even today in some areas, nothing quite gives you peace of mind like having a locksmith set you up with high-security locks.
Another piece of interesting locksmith history involves the famous escape artist Harry Houdini. Had it not been for his beginnings working with a locksmith at the tender age of 11, he might never have become the marvel he did. He was a collector of locks and very passionate about learning how each one operated so that he could open them at will.
Not all locksmiths are as amazing as Houdini or as reputable as we are, however. As a final piece of locksmith history, consider that the catalyst for King Louis XVI being beheaded was that his royal locksmith, Francois Gamain, deceived him by opening the king’s secure chest to give the documents within to the revolutionaries. Today’s locksmiths are far more ethical and many, like us, will follow security protocols before resolving a lockout situation.
