China's locks have been stretched for thousands of years, it and the private ownership of human almost born at the same time. Initially, the human only simply put the personal treasures wrapped up with the animal skin, tied with a rope firmly tied, and finally in the opening marked with a special knot. This tightly tied knot can only be picked up with a tool called "wrong". Wrong, also known as "Xiao", "screwdriver". It is made of animal teeth or animal bones, shaped like a sickle-like hook, in fact, knot is the earliest lock, wrong is the earliest key, this is the prototype of our locks. This has been used from the Shang Dynasty to the Han Dynasty, after the use of jade, evolved into the aristocratic dress on the ornaments. To the 5000 years of Yangshao culture period, our ancestors created in the wooden structure of the building on the wooden lock (see "Encyclopedia of China Light Industry Volume").
