Lock and Spin

This wonderful bike rack resides in front of Burlington Telecom's office. It's eye catching and functional—insomuch as the dial spins like a real Master Lock. Give it a whirl and the sturdy steel dial rotates a long time, similar to well-greased bearings on a bike wheel.

    1. It would be really cool to have it function like a real master lock, but alas there's no combination. I feel like a kid when I spin the dial. My boys love it.

  3. Cool. It's got me curious though. Is it one-of-a-kind? Did the telephone company have it made and installed? I can't make out the name on the lock.

    1. Now I know! The rack is by Katherine Clear. I've seen many other works by her. It seems to be a commission by BT.
