Modern door lock design

Have you ever struggled to put the key into the door lock in poor light conditions? Now with the help of the designer Junjie Zhang this action can be simplified very much. The new V-Shaped door lock has a channel that guides the key straight into the lock without any hassle. I’m very curious how much will this kind of lock last, due to the friction that is involved when inserting the key. A good alternative to this system is the door handle with led, that lights the key hole with a press of a button.

This simple and effective design improves the functionality of the old door lock.

Some pictures of the V-Shape modern door lock below:
