    Open Up: The Fascinating World Of Locks, Keys And Safes

    Hello. My dad is a locksmith. When I was growing up, we lived in a house behind the shop. I spent my childhood watching Dad cut keys, open car doors and demonstrate safes. Whether customers came early in the morning or at midnight, I always wanted to see what was going on! I'm a teacher now, but I help Dad when things become hectic. Holiday times are the worst. People lose their keys while they are away or misplace car keys in their hurry to reach the airport! I love being in the shop with all the keys, locks and safes. Dad always has some new product on display. Right now, it's an unbreakable bicycle lock. I started this blog to share my interest in locks, keys and safes with other like-minded souls. I hope you find it fascinating and inspiring. Please turn the key and step inside.
