The history of locker locks

- Dec 06, 2019-

Lockers were originally produced in Japan and later widely used in Taiwan. Lockers have been in existence for decades. From the initial simple locker to the current intelligent shared locker, the locker has been continuously developed and improved, bringing us a convenient and safe experience. In the process, along with the development of lockers, there are various locks applied to the cabinet doors.

The reason why the locker can provide us with security is mainly from the various locks that it uses. With the advancement of technology and changes in market demand, locker locks have experienced the development process from mechanical locks to password locks to smart electronic locks, just like other locks.

The lockers were first used mechanical padlocks. This lock has a simple structure, low cost, and is very convenient to use. Therefore, it is very popular with consumers. Until now, lockers using padlocks still occupy a considerable part of the market, such as MAKE MK308. MK308 uses zinc alloy material, which is easy and convenient to operate. It needs to be used with padlocks and can be used in ABS lockers, metal plastic lockers, etc.

With the development of the locker industry and the increasing public demand for the security and convenience of lockers, password locks gradually replaced padlocks and occupied the market. MK706 is the lock introduced in response to market demand. MK706 lock housing is made of high-quality and environmentally friendly ABS. The number of laser key can reach 10,000 and users can set any password. If they forget the password, they can use the management key to temporarily unlock it. In addition, they can use the password probe to retrieve the password.


With the development of science and technology and the improvement of public safety awareness, more convenient and safe smart electronic locks have gradually entered everyone's field of vision. For example, MAKE’s smart electronic lock MK720 is equipped with a bracelet as a key. Users can open their lockers through the bracelet that they carry on their hands, which is very convenient. In addition, there is a key code lock MK725 with fixed and temporary modes, easy to install, operate and set the password.

Both lock cases are made of ABS material, which is waterproof and moisture-proof, and can be used in wet places such as swimming pools and baths. At the same time, an external emergency power socket is installed under the lock, equipped with an emergency power supply,  users don't worry even if the locker's lock is out of power; more importantly, both locks are fastened with buckles instead of traditional screws, which is very convenient and quick to install and save a lot of labor.

Of course, in addition to the key code lock, there are higher-level MK732 smart electronic card locks and MK733 smart electronic code locks. They can be freely used between private and public use modes, switching to meet the different needs of users. At the same time, both locks are equipped with an emergency opening universal key, which is convenient for users to open the locks in time when they lose their cards or forget their passwords.

In the future, we believe that with the advancement of technology, more and more convenient, safer, and more humane lockers will appear in front of everyone. Xiamen MAKE Security Technology Co., Ltd. will uphold the mission of security and continue to provide more quality products for locker industry!
