Default Roman Padlock I

Here is the first of 5 Roman padlock replications. There are a lot of keys pictured on the internet, but very few of the locks apparently have been recovered. I took me awhile to figure out how the locking mechanism worked based on comparing the keys and the pictures of the locks.

The first pictures is a mock up of the locking devise, a set of reed type springs.
