Locks are technology what you got?

Gonna drop $300 on one for my bedroom since the house will be open as a barn soon.

I want to do something different, just talk about locks you guys use.
Niggas aint walkin round at night like that sly mother fuckin coon. Bitch you think people actually pick locks and burglarize you? betchu think this wut he look like huh?
Locks are only a deterrent.
Most robberies are a crime of opportunity, if they see a weakness, they'll exploit it.
Someone forgot to close their door?
Run in and grab what you can.
If someone goes in with the express purpose of robbing you, they will find a way.
Hope your door is made of like, solid steel or something.
Breaking down your average door is easy as fuck nobody gives a shit about locks. Enjoy the next visit from your local nigger Jamal OP
>I could get through this lock with a bolt and a hammer.
No you couldn't. There's plenty of force-based ways of bypassing a lock, but hammering a bolt into the hole wouldn't do shit towards bypassing it.
Tools exist specifically for opening Abloy's disc locks.
Virtually every single lock out there can be opened with bumping, jigglers, a soft media attack, really quick raking, a couple minutes of precise picking, or just brute force with a drill or hammer.
in my experience there's always at least a few pins in the tumbler that are just easier to set than the others. Then there's that one asshole pin that you need to use a special tool or ask really nicely and pray that it cooperates.
It was never a really big hobby. I bought a set of picks when I was in high school, and I used to shim the pad locks on everyone's locker thinking I was hot shit. I went to a trade school for residential construction, and got into selling home security stuff on the side. Thats where most of my knowledge comes from.
The icon indicates the one pin that is aligned differently than the others. By keeping a constant torque on the lock, you can pick each pin one at a time because that pin will stick. It's just trial and error at that point.
it is the pin that is pressed against the cylinder. if you push it up the force will lock it in place.
i am currently learning lockpicking. It is actually pretty fun but needs a steady hand.
Why did he use such a small bolt, one where you need to use needle nose pliers to hit the lock? just use a length of rod or even better still a large center punch which is designed to be hit by a hammer?
fuck that annoyed me
He used a little cut bolt because you don't need to punch through the cylinder, all you need to do is compromise the locking band holding it in place. Bolts are small, easy to come by, and easy to dispose of. They're commonly used when breaking into commercial property because of that.
> you don't need to punch through the cylinder, all you need to do is compromise the locking band holding it in place.
and a center punch would do that just fine.
>Bolts are small, easy to come by, and easy to dispose of
A center punch fits in the palm of your hand and can be brought in the exact same store a bolt can and whats it matter if its small, like the cops are going to ignore the fucking hammer you are carrying around?
Just get a 1/4" Bolt for the inside of the door.
On the topic of lockpicking. I've been considering taking it up as a hobby. Just some shit to do while here at my desk.
Can anyone direct me to some good but not overly expensive picks, and maybe some guides to start learning off?.
I feel self-teaching this sort of thing would be too stressful and I hope having something to start learning off of will alleviate a lot of said stress.
That would only apply to big targets like hotel chains or companies where one hacked key would open lots of doors.
For private households it's like a group of people being chased by a lion. To survive you don't have to be the fastest. There only has to be someone slower than you. Meaning, if you have better security than your neighbour, you are pretty much safe. And no normal burglar/nigger would ever have the means/wits/time to hack electronic locks.
There are two types of security:
Security for when you're home
and security for when you're away from home.
Ultimately security when you're away from home is best provided by a monitored alarm system. It won't stop someone from breaking in, but it will alert the authorities the moment someone does, and a good system will catch their face on camera.
For when you're home a good barking dog does wonders. You can't keep a determined man out of the house, but you can make a door impossible to open through reasonable means. A reinforced door jam along with a lock that has a strike plate and a device to physically block the door from opening is about as good as it gets. You can find Club door lock all over the place for around $20-$25.
Any lock can be smashed and drilled till all the main components are broken, then all you have to do is pull the bolt back. That being said, there are locks out there that prevet it, like those found in safes.
Larger safes use a plane of glass on the inside of the door that prevent drilling. It does this by shattering and dropping a bolt across the mechanism that throw the main bolts when the lock is opened. This is called a deadbolt becasue it also locks the safe permantly, even if you have the key or combination.
Op here, been looking for vids of people picking the Abloy lock, only saw vids of people drilling through with a specific tool.... which means I don't have to worry right? It would be too obvious if someone kicked my door down because of sly thieves in the house.
A sturdier solid wood door makes it even easier, the force is likely not going to break the door itself.
A typical pine 2x4 can be broken with a single kick by someone who can leg press 250lbs on one leg and with minimal training for proper form.
>average crim having an international-order drill bit or Abloy-specific tool when literally zero of the locks they have ever come across in their entire career is an Abloy
Yeah, except no.
They will smash their way in. If they cannot smash because the sill and surrounding windows are properly reinforced, there will be no break in. Period.
On a mortised lock, there is nothing in the back to stop the keyway from being pushed out. There is no housing or backplate or door material or anything. In order for this to work with a Protec door lock as you would find in a house, you would have to blow out the back side of the door lock, or sheer the two 1/4" bolts holding the front and rear halves together. Literally never going to happen.
The drill attack is the only effective means of destroying a door-mounted Protec, and it is loud and requires a corded drill and a very special bit that would never see use because Abloy is so scarce in America.
Total non issue.
I guess it's somewhat ok-ish situation if the burglar is forced to use specific tools / forced to breake down the lock or the door instead of quietly picklocking it open. It would probably just "scare" away the ones who are just looking for a easy target, bit similar to those shitty/good locks in your bicycle. If the burglar really wants to get in obivously the locked door isn't going to stop him as has been mentioned in this thread countless times.
I remember when I was 14 and I picked a lock with a pin. That was a crowning achievement for me. I moved onto harder and harder locks and now I can't stop picking locks.
I'm thinking of robbing a few houses once I manage to master these types of locks (in the image).

I'd kek if they actually managed to realize the thing was a lock.
Locksport is legal in almost all jurisdictions. The rules are pretty simple: at their most strict form, they boil down to only picking a lock that you own. (If you rent, that means the door to your unit, which you do not own, is not a lock you should try to pick.) But locks are cheap enough that you can buy lots of them and fiddle with them whenever you want to take your eyes off the screen.
Anon buying Abloy lock? You probably won't be able to pick it (and I couldn't either), but do yourself the favor of at least trying before you install it! And if you're seriously worried about security, as other anons have suggested, secure the door frame. It is rare that bad guys actually bother to attempt picking or even bumping (a form of picking that leaves tons of forensic evidence) a lock. The lock isn't the weakest point. Bad guys just break in through the window or bodyslam the door.

Bought this from the thrift store this afternoon, and brute forcing it right now.
I looked up videos on picking these things, but I can't hear the *click*, I can't see the little differences in gaps when a tumbler is set. Four 6 position tumblers. 1300 possible combinations is doable, and I'm sure I won't even have to go that far.
its called binding. each lock has its own unique binding order due to slightly different sizes of pins and holes. only one pin will bind at a time and that is the pin you have to set.
