Introduction 1. Types of Locks Ancient Chinese padlocks can be classified into the splitting spring locks and the letter-combination locks. A splitting spring padlock has to use a key for opening, and it has the types of broad locks and pattern locks. And, a letter-combination padlock has no keys for opening. 2. Shapes of Locks Broad locks are kinds of horizontal positioned locks, Figure 1(a). The front side is of the shape of the character "凹", and mostly made of bronze. Pattern locks come in many different shapes, Figure 1(b). They can be roughly classified into the types of human figures, animals, musical instruments, letters, utensils, and others. Combination locks usually have three to seven wheels, Figure 1(c). They are of the horizontal round-pillar shape with several tunable wheels of the same size set in array on the central axis of the pillar body. Each wheel has the same amount of carved letters. 3. Engraving of Locks Engraving on the body surface of Chinese locks can be classified into two types: the etching and the engraving. Patterns commonly employed are lucky objects, human figures, Chinese characters, landscapes, flowers, plants, and others. All these revealed hidden handicraft skills and great beauty in an object of such utility. 4. Materials of Locks According to the development of various materials in various periods, ancient Chinese locks were made of wood, bronze, brass, red bronze, Cupro nickel, iron, silver, gold, steel, aluminum, and nickel. The early broad locks found were mostly made of bronze; later the brass was the most popular, followed by iron. 5. Mechanisms A splitting spring padlock consists of a lock-body, a sliding bolt, and a key, Figure 2(a). The lock-body provides a keyhole for the key to insert and the supporting guide for the sliding bolt to move. The sliding bolt has a shackle for hanging the lock and a stem for bonding one end of the splitting springs. The key is designed corresponding to the configuration of the splitting springs, and the location and shape of the keyhole. When it is locked, the sliding bolt is trapped by the opening springs against the inner wall of the lock-body. For opening, the key is inserted and its head squeezes the opening springs so that the sliding bolt can be separated from the lock-body. A combination padlock comprises of the lock-body, rotating wheels, and the sliding bolt with a shackle and a stem, Figure 2(b). The lock-body contains an end plate and an axis with rotating wheels for guiding the movement of the sliding bolt. The sliding bolt also has an end plate for bonding both the shackle to hang the lock and the stem with several convex ( 凸 )-shaped blocks. Every rotating wheel is of the same size. Usually four letters are engraved on the surface. And, there is a concave ( 凹 )-shaped chute that corresponds with each convex-shaped block on the stem. When unlocking the lock, one has to rotate the letters on each wheel into the correct order and position. When all the concave-shaped chutes face upward, a channel is formed that allows the stem with convex-shaped blocks to slide apart from the lock-body. The lock is then opened.
