March 12             Subject: Locks – Keys – Latches

There are multiple meanings for these words, but we are looking only for the ones relating these three together as follows: Latch – a fastner, not a lock – such as a bar falling into a notch or a spring which slides a bolt into a hold. Lock – a fastening usually operated by a key or a combination. Key – an instrument (usually metal) by which the bolt of a lock is turned to open or lock.
