Or, you could just use your house key. Abloy is, arguably, the most secure lockset you can buy. It has a secure key profile so nobody besides you can have copies made, and it's a one-key model, so your house key can open any lock in their lineup (from furniture locks, padlocks, deadbolts, etc.)

Was anyone else having a hard time watching that video when the shooter was pointing the muzzle(s) at his face? I know it was empty, I know the slide was locked back, but dear god, I just wanted him to point it at the floor. Read more
