Locksport Security Quick Left Hackfest Boulder

11/20/2013 6:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Quick Left and Locksport International are proud to announce a partnership built to host the most exciting hackfest since... Sandals 2: Electric Boogaloo! Brace yourselves as we bring you the magical world of locksport. Locksport is about the competitive picking of locks and features a need for knowledge and understanding about how the things around us work. You see, locks are just like mechanical puzzles. Our favorite saying is "picking locks is like doing a Rubik's cube in the dark." If you like puzzles, you'll love locksport.

However, picking locks is not just about entry. We're constantly discovering design flaws that help manufacturers improve their products. We also publish these flaws so homeowners and businesses don't secure themselves with faulty products. The true purpose of locksport is making the world a safer place - and we need your help to do so!

We'll have plenty of locks and tools to practice with, QLers to teach you all the tricks, and of course, beer and pizza. No prior experience required!

Oh, and don't forget about the competition! Whats a QL hackfest without some greasy head-to-head contest action where winners leave with some free swag and some of the best bragging rights in town.

Worried about breaking the law? You'll be fine if you just remember the following credo: You may only pick locks you own or you have been given explicit permission to pick.

Because the lay person has a tendency to perceive what we do as somehow nefarious, it is extra important that we commit to following a strict code of ethics. For this reason, the above credo is non-negotiable in the locksport community. Lockpicking should never, ever be used for illegal or even questionable purposes. Please do not misuse this information. We assume no responsibility for your actions, and in no way condone immoral activity. Help keep locksport fun for all by following strictly the one rule.

Are you up for the challenge? Well we're bringing it to you November 20th at 6 PM.
