Re: Your home deadbolt/locks are totally ineffective.
That is correct, keen observation.
Worse, an entire region might have only '1000' total, over the entire history of the product line. So basically it means everyone purchasing them at Home Depot, for a solid year, all have the same keys unless they've had them rekeyed.
Smartkey is the latest rage, and you can see how silly and useless that is. A $9.00 tool off Ebay opens those in a second. These are complete garbage, and a DREAM for a govt. run amok that wants their ops inside of any home in America within seconds. The most nefarious part? Bumping, or Smartkey LOOKS like the guy already has a key, and is just a person 'checking on your home' that you asked to do it. They literally have a key, or what looks like a key, and spend a mere second outside your door. Nobody ever suspects a thing.. Smartkey units all have a cut little 'punched' icon, very small, right on the cylinder, so anyone doesn't really need to guess if you have one from the outside of your home.. How cool is that?
Raising public awareness of this is crucial IMO. The lock industry has been in bed with the cartels for too long, duping the public.
