Locks break and age in various ways. It gets scratched up, bent in some places, perhaps a little loose in some sides, or look different overall. Just like mold to food, anything metal such as locks will eventually be affected by rust. Mold, though, spells the end of a food’s life. The mere sight of mold indicates that the roots of it has spread deep enough inside the product and the mold is looking for others to destroy as well. Rust on the other hand isn’t always the point of no return.
