I can't wait till somebody tries to pick that medeco alarm switch. We could
be here till the next century waiting for that.
And just think of all the fun they will have trying to open vending machines
with the "compact tubular lock picker and video"
These guys have to be kidding. Actually, it reminds me a lot of "buy real
estate with no money down" or, perhaps, "I'm from Nigeria and I have some
money I need moved out of the country"
Well, hey, maybe the kids can have fun with the laser slingshot.
And don't get me wrong either, I'm all in favor of backyard innovation and I
wish the folks success in their new venture.

This worked well until the Internet.
Now that the cat is out of the bag it's fairly obvious that any idiot with
an 80 IQ can pick most locks.
They may never be a Hank Spicer, but the reality is most locksmiths aren't
and in fact most locksmiths don't even have the
the reading skills to read some of Hank's books
and actually learn something other than
how to use a rotary pick.
Apply a battery voltage and snip the wires.
No need to fuss with the switch.
Nobody opens vending machines.
There just isn't enough inside to make it worth the trouble.
If you want it that badly, smash the glass or
take the entire machine and cut it open at home.
Or better yet, cart the machine home and then
call a locksmith and tell him you lost the keys.
I'm sure he will be happy to make the $49.00.
The plumbing trade used to be the *butt* of all jokes but now it seems
that locksmithing has become the new joke in town.
