    Multiple gate locks

    Interesting idea, found on line.

    “Each pair of tabs is bolted to the neighbor. Releasing any one lock allows the bar to move by sliding all the adjacent locks with it inward. For this to work, every hole must have a lock in it. Think of the tabs and locks as links in a chain - breaking any one link allows the remainder of the chain to be free.”

    The pikey key fits all

    Looks complcated from this angle but I'm sure it's simple when you see it with your own eyes.

    A very simple idea, but did need the flickr photos to work it out

    Re: Multiple gate locks

    So what is the advantage? Presumably I can give a key to the agronomist, one to the contractor, one to the pigeon shooter etc and when one loses his key I only have to change his lock rather than making sure everyone has a new key?

    You don't supply the locks, your tenants do, then when one fails to pay and gets chucked out, you cut his padlock off and put the replacement tenant's on

    Ooooh, using that principle applied to my example I'm going to get the agronomist to supply his own lock tomorrow
