You are asking highly sensitive Locksmith trade information that only
licensed locksmiths have the legal right to know.
Would you ask Doug Henning how he makes elephants disappear?
He wouldn't tell you anyway so why do you expect us locksmiths to give
away our trade secrets?
How do we know that you aren't a car thief?

Yea they do.
That's the most hysterical part about the FUD (Fear Uncertainty and Doubt)
that the Locksmith trade propagates.
They will cry up and down about the big box stores not offering commercial
grade 2 locksets but at the same time they will gladly install said
lockset in the front door of a home.
A front door that has huge glass panels running on each side of the door.
Gee....ya think the crook might be smart enough to break the window?
That's too easy.
The crook is going to see my *Schlong* grade 2 lockset and run.
Same thing with cars.
The locksmith will glady install a Medeco "high Security" ignition lock in
the steering column of most cars.
They forget that the shroud is made of plastic or cheap metal and the
crook will simply bash the left side of the steering column and press down
on the actuator rod.
Locksmithing, except for safe/commercial work is for the most part a dead
trade inhabited by low lifes whose primary tool is a "rotary pick".
The people making the real money in locksmithing are those selling the
tools, books and courses.
The only guideline I know is to read your trade magazines. And also to
study the pages of your code books. A practiced eye can get a LOT of
information out of the pages of code books. I was at a seminar one
time where the fellow had a couple pages on overhead transparencies.
He pointed out a lot of very important information about the codes he
was using for demo.
Yeah, sounds like one I attended once on impressioning..
here, look, on this vehicle there is never anything but a 1 cut
in this position.. never more than 2 alike in a row, and the tip
cuts were always a 3 or 4.. stuff like that..
