Lock Barrels

Lock BarrelA lock barrel, also called lock cylinder, is the inner component of a lock that contains the tumblers and accepts the key. It is typically a cylindrical or tubular part of the lock that contains the tumblers, pins, or other mechanisms that control the locking and unlocking of the device.

When the correct key is inserted into the barrel, it aligns the tumblers, allowing the barrel to rotate freely and unlock the mechanism. Lock barrels are found in various
types of locks, including door locks, padlocks, and many other locking devices.
