Well, we finally got video #1000 behind us!  I can’t even to begin to describe the hundreds of topic suggestions I received in the weeks leading up to it.  I covered the most popular (and not so practical) ones in the video, but some of them were downright wacky.  Here are some of the ones […]

I’m amazed at how much influence the Tribe has on the quality of lock pick kits and equipment hitting the marketplace!  Over the past year manufacturers have introduced new gear at an incredible rate.  More importantly, following our reviews (and YOUR hundreds of comments) of the “junk” we found on Amazon, the sellers disappeared (or […]

  FINALLY!! This week I installed an extended validation SSL certificate on the LockLab. This ensures that ALL of your data going back and forth to the servers (there are multiple) is secure and encrypted, but that’s not all.  I obtained the “Extended Validation” certificate which is the premier security certificate.  The vetting process is […]

What a WILD week!  The TRIBE really came through with some super suggestions to improve the website.  So many, in fact, that we started a “Website Improvements” page to keep track of the priority and status of each suggestion.  Some of the suggestions are great, but technically impossible, or at least require a lot of custom coding to […]
