OMG Open Any Lock - Low Tech But Frighteningly Effective

it's the end of locks as we know them

it's called keybumping. take a key. any style key. shorten it, take a bit off the shoulder, file the teeth a little deeper, slide it into any lock it fits (just 10 different styles fit 90% of all locks), tap it a few times with a screwdriver handle and presto, the lock turns as if the key was made for it. you're in with no trace of forced entry.

here's a report from german tv.

the technique's been known for years, but it's gotten very hot recently. time to take it seriously.

if the key filers hit you, good luck filing an insurance claim.

ladies and gentlemen, start yout pitbulls.

Whoa - that is SO not cool.

time for those keypad thing-a-ma-jigs as a standard?

better yet, dig a huge hole, fortify it, line with concrete, throw in all your valueables, THEN build your pitbull pen on top of that.

For higher security, use Medeco locks.

They are more expensive, but greatly enhance security.

Medeco locks can not be picked, and hardware stores, etc. can not make duplicate keys.

To get duplicate keys made, you have to go to a locksmith shop.

There've been lockpicking guns around for years that do that sort of thing.

It's suspicious that they mostly hold the lock in their hands for their little trick instead of having it installed so it's more vibration resistant.
