So anything you buy in home depot or anything any safe in walmart, costco walmart, costco staples, canadian tire, it's all crap.

We can open them in less than 10 seconds.

Some of it.

This is what I'm showing you right now is what we did on ross mclaughlin ctv on your side.

We actually went to staples.

We filmed us buying the safe.

We picked it up.

We did it and you'll.

See how quick we did it.

Uh, my youtube channel is mr locksmith on youtube.

In 2015, we had 2 million plus minutes, viewed on my channel that's.

My public videos, not my training videos, my public stuff, and that that's 34 000 hours watched on my youtube channel.

And I sell training videos all over the world on how to open things this one, I put up because they said it.

Second company, tell me I was full of it.

Uh, we actually brought in two friends from the states who are heavily involved in training, uh, government, people how to open stuff.

They came up here sought.

And then the 30 million dollar lawsuit sort of disappeared, really quick.

Um, I've been threatened twice now with some nice, big lawsuits, actually, we have lawsuit parties now somebody's going to threaten me because it's kind of fun, especially if you're right if you're wrong that's, a little different story that's, why we replicate it everything we do.

So I picked this up today at staples, 250 it's a safe.

They say, right on our sentry safe, fire safe.

Biggest safe manufacturer in north america.

This is their brand new version.

Uh, we opened we've been opening them for last.

They changed the piece to a super cheap piece.

And I couldn't believe it when I looked at that, this is garbage, and we opened it shocked everybody.

So here this is.

I put in the batteries.

So six, eight, nine, two, seven and it.

You know, it all works solid.

You know, this is safe it's, not too heavy.

And you bolt it down if you want to so it's, locked there's different methods of what we call methods of attack it's, actually based on the cia was defense against methods of entry, and it really wasn't defense against.

It was how to open anything and everything.

And my granddad did this, you know, 50 years ago, this is a rare earth.

Magnet it's, very, very, very very dangerous.

It can really hurt you badly.

And you got to have make sure you have no you'll wreck your phone in half a second.

Yeah, we put in a sock because because there's a reason for it.

So what it is, this will open up different types of magnets will open up most hotel rooms, most inexpensive safes and most apartment buildings.

You know, there's very little security.

We sell stuff.

Our job is to secure our customers.

So we don't sell the garbage.

We sell good quality stuff.

This deadbolt, which is on my house.

Mike has it on his house.

You have them there there's.

I teach police forces how to open stuff.

We can't teach them how to open this because there's, no known non-destructive method of entry on that other stuff.

We have a free-for-all and everything this safe stuff, or we shouldn't get into that, but it's different.

Yes, it's commercial grade.

There will be signs of entry on the banks, no they're smart.

They have ul listed commercial grade tested.

This stuff is a safe so it's, locked you all saw it locked there's a flaw in the system.

It has a nickel piece from china, not that everything from china is bad.

I hope not I put it on there.

Oh now watch it not going to open there.

We go.

We did it on tv, 1.63 seconds and then ross mclaughlin opened in three seconds, and we put the sock on it.

So I can pull it off.

If I put this on a hunk of metal, you want to lock it again, judy.

This is the bolts they lock into here.


And then when you put that in there, it takes all of those things away.


And knocking the hinges off won't work because there's a secondary hinge on the inside.

Oh, this doesn't have that it's worse than I thought, that's great that's, even worse, really strong with four of these bolts here, yeah.

And yet one little thing will trigger them back.

Yeah, there's a they.

They took a nickel solenoid, which once they apply electricity to it.

You know, it sort of magnetizes, the the solenoid and causes it to close and think of how much out there it works on that principle.

So we know where the solenoid is, what do you think we do if we have to drill it? We drill a quarter inch hole in this.

There we go.

This will open up every single century, safe, electronic safe on the market can be opened the other the old way they did it.

They replaced the piece because what we used to do was bounce it, and it would open now.

Now they fixed it.

It made it easier for us to open with a magnet.
