Finally Back Online - Locksmith Blog
Topic: General Chatter
Aghh, moving house was far more stressful than i imagined but im now finally back online and back in business.

Had a wonderful 2 weeks in the Maldives and was suprised to see an interesting lock in use on our apartment door. (My wife was delighted to see me wasting our cameras memory snapping locks...)

Made by Fontaine, Paris is appears to be a crude tubular style lock with a big brass key. Unfortunately i didnt have my tools with me (under threat of death from my wife)

I cannot find much info on the lock to link to other than a youtube video. A translation would be appreciated from any of my overseas subscribers :-)

Hey , nice to see you're back online.

How is the married life ?


I though I could help you with a translation , as I presumed it was french. Unfortunetly , my Spanish is limited to: dos cervezas por favor.

 Anyway , a book I have , High security Mecanical locks , has some info and a few pics. Here's a link to the Amazon page. If you have an account , you can look inside. Its on Page 211.
