Want that extra level of immersion?
Have thieves but no locks that are pickable thanks to modern locks actually being really well designed?
Nuts to the 20th century. Tumblers too. Here's an old school lock for you!
You hold your knife between your teeth, keeping it accessible while your hands are busy picking a noble’s unguarded luggage. Leaving anything valuable without a guard is like an invitation to steal it...at least that’s been your experience.
With a satisfying ‘click!’ the Metal Lock comes undone and you pry the chest open to reveal--oh, yes! That will do nicely. You pocket what looks to be a sizeable purse and a few interesting looking weapons, before carefully replacing the lock and sneaking out of the tent undetected.
Epic Armoury’s Lock Chest is a working, simple lock designed to secure a chest full of loot. Made from darkened mild steel, the lock consists of a solid metal arch set through a steel bar.
To use the Lock Chest, open or close it using a universal Allan-key in the lock located inside the steel crossbar. The lock is practical and simple in style and can match a variety of genres or settings. It is sized to fit anywhere a normal padlock is used.
- Locks have been used for at least 6 thousand years, with early versions made of wood
- The Greeks and Romans introduced iron locks during the 1st millennia B.C.
