Home  So many kinds of locks are available these days. But the credit of introducing the most wonderful lock goes to a Pakistani, named Sheikh Mohammad Rafique. The lock is marvellously huge, about 21" long, 12" wide, and 4.25 inches thick. Its weight is 50kg and 700gms (without key), and 52 kg & 450gms (with key). The key is equally large, about 11" long weighing 1.75 kg. The lock is in perfectly usable condition. The manufacturer claims it to be a world record. The lock was manufactured in 1952 by Sh. Mohammad Rafiq and it took three consecutive years to complete. After the death of Sh. M. Rafiq it was given to his son, Mohammad Zafar Iqbal. This lock is currently in the custody of "Crown Lock House, Lahore, Pakistan" whose Managing Director is Aaqil Hamid.
