This braille lock makes locking mechanisms accessible to the sightless in an effort to help make security tools usable for more people. Often, many things can be inaccessible to the visually impaired but with tools like this, options are opening up for the blind.

Designer Edouard Guesne created this lock for the convenience of the blind by infusing braille into the locking mechanism. Instead of visual numbers or keys, this lock features braille for a more accessible security tool. The design features a small and sleek design that is easy to carry -- it's not very heavy and doesn't take up a lot of space in your backpack. The design is also very durable, which is necessary in a locking mechanism. This braille lock brings a much-needed accessibility to people with vision impairments in terms of personal security.
