I am staying away from your place, even with an invitation...

2005? Locksmiths have been opening key locks this way for many decades. At least since 1978 when I first saw it. You do not need a key though. There is a handheld device that you hold in one hand, and squeze the trigger. A tingler inserted in the lock jiggles the tumblers, while another part of the device tries to turn the cylinder. The pins (two pieces), one by one, evenually all jump to the point where the cylinder can turn. Then you just turn the cylinder with the body of the device.

Not sure I described it very well, but it only takes a locksmith around 30 seconds to pop a standard lock.

You want key lock security, you need something a lot more sophisticated, like a medco lock with angled pins.

This is just an automated way to do what theives do all the time when they "pick" a lock with two handheld tools, one to jiggle the pins, the other to apply turning pressure to the cylinder. That requires some skill, though. The first way anyone could pop a lock

I agree with having a good alarm system and a big dog. The two cat and a small dog plan isn't bad but then there is three animals to care for and all three need to be a bit disturbed to make it work.

I think I posted this on another thread here but a few weeks ago I let my Lab and Rot out into the back yard on a Saturday morning. A few minutes one of them was barking at the front door to get in. I let the dogs in then sent out to find the side gate was open on my 6' tall fence. I closed the gate and didn't think much about it. A few days latter the local PD went door to door letting us know that there had be a rash of break in's in the neighborhood. I told the officer that I found my gate open Saturday morning and he said "keep your eyes open". I told him I could do better as I have camera's that record motion and might have video of the the bad guys. Less than 30 minutes latter I was burning a CD for the offiicer of two guys climbing over my fence and then running away through the gate when the motion lights turned on. I didn't reconize the people and haven't heard if they were caught. The bad guys were at my home when me and my family were asleep and clearly didn't case the house as my dogs would have shreaded them if they came in, the alarm would have went off and I would be armed. In the end tyhe motion activated light scared them off and I expect it's true, let your neighbors house be an easier target.

I burnt several copies of the CD and wrote a quick list (big dog, security system, motion activated lights and motion activated cameras) and a "B" plan a loaded firearm that you are experienced with and ready to use. I gave those to my neighbors that I know. One of the neighbors seemed a little embarassed when I told him what I was giving him and told me his house had been hit while the kids were in school and he and his wife were at work. They threw a lawn chair through his sliding glass door and tore his house up taking easy carry items. I told him I didn't know he had been robbed and was sharring just how close I came to being robbed. This weekend I'm helping him install some motion lights and he is getting a security system installed. They can't have a dog because his wife is alergic and a firearm isn't something they will consider.

That's a really good way to put it (for its accuracy): "Just make your neighbors easier targets."
