    One thought on “High-Security Mechanical Locks”

    1. A solid reference, however it was kind of bloated, exploded views of locks that were early prototypes etc, stuff that wasn't really relevant to the topic, and completely overlooks automotive transponders, It's a good reference if you just want to see what the kind of lock you've got,and how it works, but lacks information on creating master key systems, pin depths etc, it just lacks some really crucial info IMHO.
