    Not sure if this has been common knowledge but I just saw the video when it was post at the beginning of February. The security alarm can possibly be bypassed as well but the are usually security cameras everywhere(I don't think these are usually monitored and are just used for investigating and deterrence). Burglary isn't really my thing but I thought this was interesting.

    Your video closing tag is upside down.

    The thing with this is a lot of closures have a recessed post the lock post butts up to, so you can't get at the locking mechanism. Also, many use the shoot bolt mechanism instead, so this wouldn't work with those. A quarter turn of the key lock releases the spring loaded shoot bolts top and bottom. The shoot bolts are inserted into drilled holes top and bottom.

    I'm pretty sure they do that for the purpose of being able to gain entry easily if some foolish employee loses a key. Like, most store owners don't want to have to wait while some "locksmith" spends 2 hours drilling out a lock when they could have spent 2 seconds opening the door and as much time as they need to replace the lock.

    I watched the video a few days ago and I just don't see any other reason to have it like that, and it's so clearly designed to that.

    It's also for emergency responders who might need to access a storefront that they don't have the key for.

    Why not just wait till the store opens and then simply walk in?

    your retarded if you did.

    why do emergency responders need to go in into a store with no one inside.

    to save ghosts.

    firefighters have battle axes and licenses to break and enter. they dont crouch tactically to lock pick to enter glass barriered building.

    they smash glass and enter.

    What if I told you not only stores have these types of locks, retard?

    Maybe they're responding to a homeless person caught on the cameras at a local gym.

    Maybe they're responding to an apartment building with a locked front door.

    Maybe Old Mr Murphey who runs the drug store fell down and broke his hip stocking the shelves before work and had to call for help.

    They don't always break the door. Not when it doesn't make sense.

    and can you show us proofs that these "tools" are widely and easily available to every emergency workers before lockpicking lawyer mentioned them.

    prove it was by design.
