Continuing our look at the NHL lockout, and specifically those devices which can be used for locking the players out of NHL buildings, we jump from one end of the spectrum to the other. Last week, we looked at one of the least effective ways to lock people out of, well, pretty much anything. The Master Lock 1500D barely registers as a lock, being easily defeated by a small child with too much time on their hands.
This week, we turn to Mul-T-Lock, a manufacturer of high end locks that are considered some of the most difficult in the world to defeat. We here at Hockey Wilderness aren't about to skimp when it comes to locking players out, so we aren't going with just any Mul-T-Lock product, we go with the high end of their product line, the MT5.
Join us as we explore this high end lockout device.
- All MT5+ products have a double-sided unique MT5+key. One set of cuts is for the telescopic pin mechanism and the other cut, the milled pattern, is for the lockingbar. The combination provides enhanced key security and higher manipulation resistance. To maximizeuser friendliness, the key also features an elegant,ergonomic key head with a special silky texture.
- The MT5+ key secure system is supported by the unique key authorization magnetic strip card. This card must be presented to the locksmith to enable additionalkeys to be supplied. Only when the magnetic key card is presented to the dedicated MT5+ key duplication machine, can the required key code be configured.
- The MT5+ not only significantly upgrades security.It supports very large and complex master key systems, incorporating hierarchy and matrix requirements even within the same suite.The milled pattern can be used to create exclusive keyways in the marketplace.
"This thing could really help us prevent the cattle from escaping." - J. Devellano (Detroit, Michigan)
"No one wants to use these locks more than I do." - G. Bettman (New York, New York)
"It was a hockey play." - G. Campbell (New York, New York)
How to Defeat This Lockout Device
The MT5 is cutting edge technology. If you want to defeat this lock, you may want to find the nearest window, bust it, and climb in that way. That, or call your nearest fire department to bring their "jaws of life" device to rip the door off the building. You aren't going to beat this lock.
Bettman Scale of Lockoutability
There are few locks in the world better than this one. For that reason, the MT5 gets a massive 9.5 Bettmans out a possible 10 Bettmans.
Hockey Wilderness Recommendation for Player Lockout
If you're going to lock players of of high class, mostly publicly funded buildings, why not use the lock that super secret agencies of the government use? These locks are used in places that people need to keep secrets secret and lives could be on the line. Where the MT5 is in place, you may also expect to see a Marine with a large gun of some kind also defending that door. It would be difficult to find a lock that is better, short of needing two matching keys turned at the same time and a Presidential order, with double confirmation, to use them.
Go ahead, owners, spring for the good stuff. We wouldn't want the players sneaking in.
