The strange thing is that every lock in Skyrim looks exactly the same, innit? During your career as a Dragonborn, you will unlock hundreds of doors, chests, crypts, and other containers. Depending on your position in the world, these locks may come from Dwemer, Falmer, Nord, Ayleid, or some other origin .
So why do they all look the same? Are there any companies in Skyrim that have monopolized the manufacture and distribution of locks for hundreds of years? Did Dwarven Spiders and Draugr Scourges drag themselves out of the dungeon and fill out the lock-in application form in the only hardware store in Skyrim?
Well, you never have to have a hunch for the equally boring, undecorated Skyrim ACME lock.This Variant of safety inspection lock and Safety inspection add-on The mods have added a lot of new lock designs for you to check out, and you can check them out every time the last Septim heroically robs Skyrim. The locks range from amazingly beautiful to mysterious and weird to quite disgusting, but they are all lore friendly and wonderful animations. There are even new sound effects accompanied by some stranger designs.
There is an Ayelid lock, a Nordic lock and Soul Cairn lock (requires a Add-on module Because Soul Mountain is not locked in Vanilla Skyrim). Tension cable locks are also very cool, making the trapped locks in the fortress and ruins look more unique when you fiddle with the mechanism to release them. If you open the lock on an underwater box, it will be covered by a barnacle, as it is most likely.
The Dwemer box has a series of bronze gears that rotate when you pick them up, which is very suitable. Falmer’s boxes, like almost everything else made by Falmer, are made of chaurus, which is a huge insect. You also want their locks to be made of bug parts. Now they are! You actually insert your pickaxe into the worm shell and twist it, and the module even adds a disgustingly strong sound to accompany the disturbing visual effects of the lock:
Please note that these modules will not change the actual unlocking system, but they add a lot of variety and immersion. Makes me want to jump back to the sky and restart the task of the Thieves Guild.
