Following is my review of this book:
digital_blue wrote:Marc Tobias and Tobias Bluzmanis have put together, undoubtedly, the most comprehensive work on Medeco locks ever to see its way to print. The Compromise of Medeco High Security Locks (Printed version: "Open in 30 Seconds") is an exhaustive, yet exhilarating venture through every corner of these previously formidable high security locks. No stone is left unturned and clearly there remains no secrets. My own journey through the pages of this book brought to me moments of utter disbelief, of forehead-slapping recognition, and of genuine laughter and head shaking.
Medeco has long been the de facto standard for high security locks in North America. With millions upon millions of locks in service the release of this book is truly earth shaking. Whether you rely on Medeco locks to protect your home or business, or are in the business yourself of supplying these locks to your customers, or even if you're simply a lock-crazy hobbyist, you must read this book. I've often seen the debate as to whether defeating locks is more art or more science. Marc and Toby have made this a science and provided the reader with all the facts, all the data, and all the evidence needed to successfully defeat a Medeco deadbolt, mortice, or rim cylinder.
Whether it's bumping, picking, or even breaking, these locks are falling open in the hands of even moderately skilled lock pickers. Marc and Toby teach us how to get past the sidebar with almost comedic ease, how to defeat the M3 slider in two seconds flat, and even some downright sneaky "tricks" that will leave your head spinning.
Marc's renowned work Locks, Safes, and Security has long been considered THE book on lock defeats and, teaming up with Toby, he has once again set the standard. It is almost certain that no work will ever come close to the depth and breadth of exposure of Medeco locks.
