coderman: doh. i love medeco locks. looks like they aren't quite as good after all. :( coderman: ""Medeco invented the pin tumbler lock that lifts and twists the pins," says Marc Weber Tobias, one of the researchers and an investigative lawyer and author. "It's a brilliant idea and basically these are unpickable locks. But we can pick them. Everybody in my profession has been trying to break these for 30-35 years. And frankly, I can't believe that we've come up with this and nobody else has." Mutiny-: Oh man they can pick a lock with the whole locking mechanism removed and sitting firmly in their hands. w0n3d!
