Labrynth lock @ ThinkGeek


Pretty sure this one’s a “today-only” sale item –

This innovative lock is designed by Art Lebedev Studio… responsible for the amazing Optimus Maximus keyboard with a tiny screen on each key. Constructed of 100% titanium alloy, nothing less than a level forty-two spell of ultimate cutting will break the Defendius lock open. Really, just look at it: no one is getting out easily. You’ll have to guide the lock nib through the labyrinth before you can open to door. There is only one solution, so no cheating will help. Maybe when confronted with the Defendius Labyrinth Security Lock, your date will reconsider your offer of playing the game of love in co-op mode. And don’t worry, these locks were tested by robots and confirmed to be the strongest lock commercially available. So, install a Defendius Labyrinth Security Lock today, and make sure your next date gets to the bonus level.

Remember to take the dog out before he has to go!

    well…make’s site showed moveabletype errors that wouldn’t let me sign in using open id.

    but i wanted to say…obviously it’s not meant to be practical, but the problem with this lock is: look how long the chain is! sure, it’d take a long time to open it. but the chain is so long, a regular sized person could easily get in with the chain locked.

    This doesn’t seem too secure, I think I could squeeze through the door with the chain attached. It has to be long enough to reach the far right side of the lock, so it opens much wider than the standard 2 inches. Seems like fun though, just not “secure”.

  5. Collin Cunningham says:

    Seems the chain that keeps me ‘safe’ from brooklyn lets the door open about 3 inches – nothin doin’ with that amount of room. On my chain, each link adds about .6″ of length – 10 links totalling ~6″ So if the link-length are the same this one totals 13.2″, so you’d think it provides an additional 7.2″ – However that would neglect the extra distance the chain has to go to the end of the maze, which looks to be around 6.6″ more.
    So really – it gives about 4″ slack for the open door gap, not a big diff – I think even Serpico would tell you to avoid that one.

    Oh wait! that would be with the lock disengaged. . . and this isn’t a real lock anyway!

    Happy Joke Day!

    on my door if I ever needed to exit my domicile quickly. Having had to do that once in the middle of the night due to an electrical fire in a basement at a friends house was not easy (lots of smoke, lots of darkness).

    Non-battery powered “delayed egress” lock. Handy for keeping althyzmer’s patients indoors.
