The Key to Opening a Locked Door

Owen told me something over the weekend that has changed my life. You know how when you put a key in a lock you never know whether to turn it clockwise or counterclockwise?  Well, if you visualize the bolt going from the door to the door frame to lock it, you can visualize which way to turn the key. For instance, if the knob is on the left side of a door, you would turn a key counter clockwise to lock it (send the bolt to the left). Conversely, you would turn the key clockwise to unlock the door (bring the bolt back out). Make sense? Does everyone already know this?? Either Owen’s a genius, or I’m just a dolt!
