|Lockpicking with computer parts? Spanish|
A lock is like a puzzle you have to pick to solve it.
So many films show hackers opening electronic locks in a few seconds, the same for James Bond and others on mechanical locks.
There are so many websites and clubs around the world about lockpicking it's considered like a sport and it's very funny and addictive.
When you build your own picks, open your first lock, then you want to move to a more complex lock and so on. Videos and books can help you improve your technic. But practice, practice, practice is the key.
Since this is the standard method, and here at sorgonet.com we don't usually do that way, the challenge was to build a lockpick device by using computer parts, and of course we did it, and it works pretty well and really fast.
|How does a lock work?|
When the right key lifts all the pins to the proper height then the plug can rotate and the lock can be opened.
Then we need something to simulate a key, you can try with a
paper clip to pull the pins while you are rotating the plug, but it
will be very difficult. There are tools to make it very easier "lock
pick sets" and there are also lock pick guns. We are going to build
something like an hybrid device.
I know it's rare to open a mechanical lock by the use of a hard disk and a mouse, but we thought it was possible and we demonstrate it!
Imagination is the true key :-]
There are many variations on the computer parts you could use,
but it's very easy to open cheap locks with this tool.
This article is just for fun and learning purposes, bad guys: I'm sure you will use better methods to break in.
