June 21st Meetup Recap

What happens when you invite LockFale from North Carolina to join ColaSec for a lock pick village?

Record Breaking attendance, solid lock picking knowledge and Adam with an epic handcuff escape story!

Lock Pick Village

Lock Pick Village

Justin Nordine and Matt Block of LockFale joined us and brought an impressive lock pick village to play in.  We learned about physical security and had a chance to try and pick tons of different lock types.  Check out the Gallery here.  This was one of our biggest turnouts for a meetup with 25 attendees. We want to thank LockFale for doing an awesome job and thanks to all of you for making it out to a great ColaSec meeting.

Once LockFale headed back across state lines, we had a chance to practice what we learned in the bonus round. Somebody “accidentally” double locked the handcuff with the “practice wrist” to Adam.  We put all of our lock picking skills to the test then promptly went to find a power drill.  After an epic lock pick session that would make an OSHA representative jump off a building, Adam was free!  Thank you LockFale.
