Concave Lock Will Help You Open the Door in the Dark

by Hazel Chua

The light on our front porch got busted recently, so it took me several minutes to get the door open. Not because the lock was jammed or broken, but because I couldn’t get my key into the slot properly and had to fumble around with a light (that was stupidly attached to my keychain, of all places.) A solution to this problem? The Concave Lock.

Concave Lock

It’s a concept design by Poh Liang-Hock, which basically adds a glowing ring around the keyhole so you can find it easily even in the dark. Its concave shape also helps to ‘funnel’ in the key to the keyhole so you don’t waste any time trying to figure out where it is.

The Concave Lock is also a 2012 IDEA Awards entry. I hope it wins – and I hope it gets produced.

    This lock is not very secure with that form as a burglar can use a drill very easily to break the lock. Drillproof locks pop out with a strong metall around them, which is angled so no drill gets hold of it.

    Now a days home security systems plays a very important and vital role in our life.
    It’s a really a very good advantages for us.
