Lacewings are the only insect I know that has a string attached to the egg, but they are usually green or yellow.

Are you in the US, ask your Home Extension office if you are. Here is a zipcode finder:

There are several insects, including some spiders, that the egg case hangs on a thread like in your photo. It is too hard to identify from your one photo.

You could send this picture to your local cooperative extension, if no one here has the answer.

I'm wondering if this is actually a 'cocoon' of some sort.
It would probably be a good idea to contact your local county extension office as they will be familiar with more types of bugs in your area.

There are other sites that like to receive photos of unusual bugs and such so you might also try contacting one of those. You will have to sign up on their site to be able to post.

If you are a Reddit member or wish to join, you will probably be able to get an answer soon.

I'm wondering that since this is on a lock that usually would hang down perhaps the lock was hanging down instead of the way the picture was taken. This would mean the sac was hanging down in the manner most sacs or cocoons are created and makes the picture kinda confusing.
I think it is probably a spider cocoon.

Thank you for all the responses, very enlightening. We'll see what comes out of the little cocoon/sack.
