Re: Sours Wild Lock Hunt

We need a thread on an unconspicuous lock camera or camera attachment, one that possibly has a cone cover that imposes a specific focus standoff for a fixed focus and depth of field
think of a small flashlight shape, with one end being a cone just larger than common mortice cylinder faces, and short enough to hold in one hand without it being highly visible,
you could simply press it onto the cylinder and click it. some diffused light would wash the cylinder face and not produce glare highlights,
with the size of modern digital cameras, this could probably be produced with off the shelf components,
step up to a door and place this over the lockface, with your hand around it looking more or less like a hand over a doorknob, and clik, you wouldn't have to bend over and focus a camera at a standoff distance, you could just appear to be touching the doorknob briefly. real james bond stuff. I should be posting this on hackaday. someone out there knows just what camera to build into it.

Re: Sours Wild Lock Hunt

if you had a camera that could do this with a fixed amount of light, avoiding the shiny highlight wiping out the detail could be done with the right filters and still being able to photograph the dull or dirty ones, and enough of a cone standoff to cover a corbin ring cylinder and depth of field, which is a matter of small aperature which would require longer exposure time depening on the light available, the depth of focus would be able to get anything from flat surface to a quarter inch of stand out, and on locks with a large ring around the cylinder, an additional standoff ring would be needed to drop over that ring and steady the cone on the lock.
with the cone in contact with the door, this should steady the thing very well, a thin rubber end on the cone would tend to grip and prevent slippage on the surface you steady it on.
IF this were used by some agency like the one mentioned in the smithsonian article on the cia lockpicker, you might have a digital camera and you would need to attach other data, such a which particular door it is. this could be voice recorded on each photo file.

Re: Sours Wild Lock Hunt

Wow, that dosent even look like a camera, it could be on a keychain and that would give it even more plausibility, I wonder how it does close up, and if not so good what easy modification would fix that,
reminds me of the hackaday cat camera on the cats collar that took fotos of the cats day, seems like when a cat meets another cat under a parked car, they spend a lot of time just staring each other down.

Re: Sours Wild Lock Hunt

Saw this interesting knob lock at the doctor.
Yale key, with some odd type of protection over the keyway.

Rai, if I had some top secret spy stuff to do, I'd rather have you than "Q" any day! Your knowledge is more varied, and you can figure things out.

Re: Sours Wild Lock Hunt

Jeff,
That additional "cap" is for esthetics. It serves no purpose but to continue the lines of the lockset. It does though make you use a specific key blank, or it won't fit all the way in the lock. Yale came out with the "L" shaped blanks with the squarish bows. These blanks will allow the key to insert all the way to the stop. Standard keyways, just a special bow.

This is a Simplex lock I found protecting a door that leads nowhere in a local Jack in The Box.

Re: Sours Wild Lock Hunt

I was traveling home from TX on weekend and stopped at a gas station... In the bathroom they has a head lock on their condom machine (E shaped keyway)

I asked the owner if I could buy it... he said no :(

Re: Sours Wild Lock Hunt

I was working at a grocery store yesterday and the store manager asked me if I could make a key for this. When I told him no he just dumped it in my hand and asked me to toss it.
