My first inclination is to say, "Who cares." I always lock the bolt and the safety bar so no one is getting in while I'm in there anyway. The only concern I would have is with someone coming in while I was away and stealing stuff or staying in the room until I return.
That's amazing. On the other hand, I can open about 90% of private residence fron doors in about 5 seconds without anyone realizing it's been done.
locks are much like gun laws, they're only gonna work on honest people.
Quoted for truth.
I dont think most people understand how easy it is to get into a home/hotel/locked area, and when they find out it scares them.
I remember when I was in college, my wife had locked the door, accidentally, on our apartment when we went to water the flowers. I was ready to smash a window when she walks up to two guys in the parking lot and asks them if we can use their phone. She explains what happened, and one of the guys says "Oh, I can fix that."
He walks up to the door, pulls out a jim, pops the door open, smiles and walks away.
My mouth was just agape - not to how quick or easily that he did it, but that my wife just happened to find someone in our parking area what had a jim, and the knowledge of how to pop a door lock...
Thats a HUGE concern though...
I used to pick locks for fun and even did it a few times on the job instead of busting doors down wihen we knew nobody was home.
It is easier than most people ever realize.
Search google for bump keys it's very easy to open most door locks without leaving any evidence.
Shhhh..... my secret is out.
If you don't have a bump-proof lock, he's likely to have a good shot at it.
Even if you do have good locks, there are still other ways in.
I have the exact opposite issue.
My door locks are not pickable, so if i ever forget my key, or lose it, or lock it inside the house, I'm in for an expensive day.
this kind of thing fascinates me.
I think it's funny how my neighbors work to lock and secure a patio door that is full glass.
If someone wants in they will get in.
No such thing as a 100% secure lock.
But he didn't say that.
Every single thing that is created to provide selective access can be breached by someone who is not authorized to be there.
The only things that cannot be breached are those things where there is absolutely NO ACCESS to all parties.
Bet I can get in.
Deviant Ollam will help open your eyes (if you are willing to see reality).
Its not 100% secure.
And I suppose its not 100% unpickable. If you had a bump key with the right initial grinds, on enough of the flats, you could trigger my locks.
However, that said, it would take so long, and be so impracticable to carry enough "bump key" blanks to find the right combination to turn my cylinders.
You'd have to be a pro, and not some street hood who's watched youtube, but a actual certified locksmith to pick my locks.
They're ridiculously expensive for a reason.
That said, there are still lots of ways in, bumping my locks, just isn't one of them.
Have you ever tried to break one of those? They are tough. I took a bunch out of my house and tried to break them. It is not that easy.
