Great bing watching material. Last night I watched the one where the LPL went over to BB's house and took the locks from BB's "naughty bucket". The day before that I heard BB say that he was a bomb tech and that after convos about him blurring his image. Intriguing,

I don't particularly like Kwikset locks. Quite easy to pick, of course, if someone wants into your home while you're not home, they'll just smash their way in, too easy to do, why mess with picking the lock.

Kwik set, Master lock and most american locks/locksets SUCK AZZ. Here's the vid I mentioned regarding the "NAUGHTY BUCKET" locks. Good intro to quality locks.

You want to pick a lock?........ Grab a hammer.
Works every time.
LPL (Lockpicking lawyer) demonstrated both non destructive and destructive tests on locks. Many locks are built to withstand hammer blows, bolt cutters and more. More often (as in the cause of all "Master Locks"), their vulnerability is in the core.

I encourage people to check out his other vids including bike locks, gun locks etc.

I guess you should "lighten up" then. Cheers Mate!
Like the late Ron LeBlanc said to me, "Misty, how do you enlighten?"

"Don't know Ron how?"

"You lighten up."

He was found hung in his barn several years ago. The island had a big memorial for him. Hope your doing better. I read the post about your father. What a crazy thing to go through. You're often in my thoughts.
