These in the East were anciently very rude contrivances. They were made of wood with long wooden bolts into which were driven a few pins which dropped into holes and held the bolt secure. The key, also of wood with corresponding pins, would raise the pins of the bolt, andallow it to be shot back. Judges 3:23,24; Nehemiah 3:3-15; Song of Solomon 5:5 .
