A Brief History of Padlocks

Though they haven’t always looked the way they do today, padlocks have been around since the Roman Era, 500 BC – 300 AD. Ancient Egyptian and Greek cultures also used padlocks in their day to day lives. People realized that they needed a way to keep things safe and secure, and so padlocks came about. The basic padlock style, a bolt sliding in both directions through use of a key or code, was also applied to the first padlocks created. Throughout the years there have been a wide variety of types of padlocks ranging from Polhem locks, to Scandinavian locks and cast heart locks.

Why You Need a Padlock from Strauss Security Solutions

There are a variety of reasons as to why you could use a padlock from Strauss Security Solutions.

  • You own a bicycle. Taking your bike out is a great way to experience the beautiful Des Moines area and get some exercise in at the same time. If you plan on stopping anywhere while on your bike, you should invest in a bike lock. Locking your bike keeps it secure so you don’t have to keep an eye on it at all times. Strauss carries the perfect locks to keep your bike safe.
  • You go to the gym. Many people choose to keep their belongings in the locker room while they are working out. Choosing to lock your locker while you’re there ensures the safety of your keys, phone, wallet, or anything else that you bring in. Since gyms don’t keep cameras in their locker rooms, a padlock is the only way to stay safe.
  • Your yard has a shed. A storage shed is a very convenient place to keep things that you don’t have room for or want in your garage or house. It’s in your best interest to keep these items as safe as possible. Just because the storage shed is in your yard doesn’t mean that a burglar won’t try to get in. Using a padlock on your storage shed will help deter potential burglars and keep your items on your property.
  • Your children use a locker at school. While many school lockers have built in locks, not all do. We carry both Master Lock and American Lock brands which means your child will be using the best quality padlock out there.
  • You travel. Travelling can be stressful. There’s a lot of things to keep in mind like what time your flight leaves, whether or not you packed everything you need, and if your travel plans are all arranged. The last thing you should have to worry about is someone getting into your suitcase. Using a padlock can keep strangers out of your suitcase and your belongings safe.
  • You own a boat. It’s summer here in Iowa and that means it’s boating season. When you’re not enjoying your time on the water, it’s important to keep your belongings locked up. A padlock from Strauss Security Solutions can help keep your belongings on the boat.
