  • Bank Vault style door lock

    I though a neat door lock for the basement furnace room / storage room would look like a bank vault gear setup. So.. 380 gear teeth later, I came up with this. A combination of Baltic birch and MDF of various thicknesses it took a couple days to come up with the final design and cutting of the gears. Turning the wheel clockwise, lifts the locking hook on the right off the pin. Turning it counter-clockwise re-locks it. If my wife doesn't feel like turning the wheel, just lifting the locking hook (it's attached with a friction screw) will also unlock the door. Enjoy

    That is such an awesome lock. If there were kids around it would get worn out...and I'm not just talking young kids....my hubby would play with that every time he'd walk by it! Cool idea Pop.

        That is real neat! What was the total time to design, cut out and assemble?
