Preventing the lock on your necklace from swinging down to your pendant

This will involve the fundamental law of physics which we all know as Newton’s law of gravity and his famous equation:


Okay, so we won’t go into all the technical aspects of the law of gravity, just as long as we understand that the heavy end of an object will gravitate down faster than the lighter side. In our situation, if the lock is heavier than the chain, it will swing down to distract and compete with the beauty of the pendant.

The solution is to replace the lock with a lighter one in weight. If you’re not sure which lock to choose, come to visit Sam. He has a large selection of locks that can be paired with your chain.
