    A thread on laptop security on the professional forums reminded me of these rather scary youtube vids:





    How many people have a simple yale lock on their front door?

    Not me - Banham, with a Banham mortice lock.

    And the door has a steel sheet cover and steel reinforcing strips round the doorway - The neighbours probably think I am the local drug dealer.

    I took a Banham mortice lock to pieces before Christmas as it failed and my friend was quoted £120 for a replacement. I was expecting it to have anti lock-pick devices inside but all it contained was the leavers and a single spring and bolt. The spring replacement solved the problem. It appears that only some of their locks are pick-proof.

    No yale here. Don't know what you call it but we have one of those hexagon types moving three or four latches the length of the door at the same time.

    A Euro Cylinder?



    All the latches are controlled by one barrel.
