A Secure Gaping Hole – Tactical Lock Picking Case Study
Even bureaucracies that manage secure facilities are still … bureaucracies. Join us as we talk about things going into holes. Big holes.
Very Short Field Entry
Please view this short video below and then check out our photos below that give you insight as to why this works as well as Deviant Ollam’s video below that will explain even more.
This is a bypass method using a “Shim” tool to force the latch back into the door.
At the 9:45 mark in this video Deviant Ollam (video above) talks about this “phenomenon” where the people who either install or maintain the physical security, doors, of a secure facility will often use the biggest [latch plate] that they can in a door frame so that no matter which door latch they choose it will always fit within the frame. The contractors or maintenance crew don’t have to keep installing new latch plates and it saves the organization money in doing so. Etc. (Also a really good video besides that)
In my case study above you can see that there isn’t even a latch strike plate, just a hole in the frame!
Have fun, be curious, be legal.
