Learn about physical security, locks, and locking mechanisms. This month's topic is combination padlocks. We'll go over how they differ from the safe locks we've been looking at the last two months, and some basic techniques to open them. I'll be bringing a good number of padlocks to display, including the Sargent & Greenleaf combination padlocks used by the military.
Of course, the safecracking competition continues this month. I expect to see some locks open this time! If you are still having trouble please sit down with me and a cutaway lock to understand the theory behind manipulation. It's important to understand how the locks work in the first place in order to learn how and why manipulation is possible.
