  1. Nice! Now Bosnian Bill, I have seen you have managed to pick so many types of lock, even the claimed 'high security' ones. What one is really hard to pick/bump/defeat?? ANd what lock should I install on my front door, to prevent anyone (including locksmiths) from gaining access?? Or do I need to change my front door and door frame to steel, instead of wood, and use 2 or 3 locks, to almost turn it into a vault door? Then they'll smash a window, won't they? Or sledge hammer the brick wall when they realise that a battering ram won't knock down the door! Plus, I also need resistance to vandalism, like glue & matchsticks jammed in the keyway. I HATE that! And yet, I've only encountered it ONCE, one someone else's padlock! But I like the idea of being able to drill out any jammed matches, and not damage the lock. It'd require something like a cylindrical key. And maybe Abloy style discs, with no obvious inwards protrusions. I also learnt that Abloy's locks are the only (or one of the few only) lock(s) that can survive being filled with rain/seawater, and frozen solid. As where they come from, that's a typical problem with their locks.

  2. Awesome. Thank you Bill. But I got a question. Can you pick a vending machine lock? Sorry I don't know what that style of lock is called. I've always wondered about them. They look rather impossible to pick.

  3. ive got a pretty interesting lock that im trying to figure out what its actually called. a friend picked up a lock a while back in the military that has a long square key with the dimples on all 4 sides. The only markings that it has on it say O.K., and a local locamith said he had a friend in germany who could get blanks. any idea on what that would be?

  5. Hey bill and the comment section, i need some advice. i am really interested in technical security, and i am 23 but when ever i try to ask any of my local locksmiths they all think im trying to scam them or something. i have even enrolled at my local Tafe in technical security but still they dont think im serious. is there anything i can do or say to convince them that im serious?
