I have some goodies to share. I was in a small town, where the padlocks were more interesting than the people.

I see these all over ebay, but rarely in the wild.

Not sure if I ever posted these, from buildings in downtown Cleveland. The top 2 are at the Masonic Auditorium and the bottom is from one of the theatres.

On a recent trip for work I was allowed to take my son with me. We stopped in an old mining town by the name of Jerome. We got out of the van to stretch our legs and I spotted this.

Wow - haven't been to Jerome in decades. Heard that it has become sort of a hippie/artist commune town. That so?

Very much so. Along with the tourist trap stuff like "Haunted Burgers". But it is a neat little town to see. Every time I have to make a trip to Prescott and Cottonwood I pass through there.

It is a more scenic route than via I-17. Used to enjoy stopping there myself.

Well at least they don't have to worry about the core being picked! Now they only need to worry if the person who wants unauthorized access has a screwdriver to turn the cam. :D

I was walking a new store for one of our customers and found this Kidde version of a Knox Box.

Interesting find,
my Dad gave me the key for the Knox boxes used locally, years ago. He always used it to gain access to gated entry homes that were aways from the main gate. I have had many exciting adventures? using my knox box key, at least one from a pair of cops who thought I shouldn't have the key, but didn't wanna start up enough to take it away. At first, I thought they were only used for the electric gates, like I said. One day years ago, I noticed a knox box mounted outside a store, it had my keyway, so I slipped it in to give it a try. I was horrified to find many door keys for stores at the small strip mall I was shopping at. Now I use it whenever I rekey to include the newest copy for the fire dept, which almost no business owner is even aware of the need to have this done. I actually have a nib knox box in the shop, they have an interesting locking arrangement and I've had to drill open a bunch with too many keys jammed inside
