    So this is for some sort of lock they stopped making sometime in the 17th century, or what? This sort of lock doesn't exist in the United States.

    It is very similar to a key utilized for level 4 plus facilities (jails, prisons...) as they cannot be picked due to no standard pins. However the depth of the holes does exactly make a difference and would be fairly impossible to match on all the key surfaces. This was early 21st century, as in our time frame.


    It's a Chinese lock. I have one on my door, only more shiny and new. It doesn't have the wheel, though. The lock is very good, as it has 2 deadbolts, and another lock at the top.

    my dad's workplace has locks with those kind of keys. You are partially right though. they are very uncommon in the U.S. I never saw one until my dad got his current job.

    I don't know but the last time my house was broken into they go over 8,000 worth of my stuff, including two computers and the tv. The time before they got the tv, one computer and the microwave. Both times in during the day, so I guess that people don't think it is uncommon for people to carry things out of houses and into what they are driving. The third time I was home when they tried to kick in the back door, I surprised them and the four teenagers ran like hell, to their suburban and took off.
