Door Lock Prototype Test

by Michael Park, Treasurer on July 28, 2013

in Uncategorized

With the help of Steve Devine, I cobbled together a proof-of-concept door lock (or more precisely, a doorknob-turner). It’s a small step toward a “keyless” entry system.

As you can see, it works, but it’s pretty darn Rube Goldbergy. If you have some ideas for improving it, leave a comment or come to SCRoW Wednesday evening.

Multiple scissor arms — like the classic trope of a boxing glove on an extending series of linked X’s may be one way to significantly increase the variation in the moment arm of this lever.
