A video surfaced on the internet, made by someone attempting to defeat a bottle lock on a bottle of vodka. They claimed that they bought the bottle at a local supermarket, which forgot to remove the lock at the time of purchase. Once they made it home and discovered the lock, they were unable to return to the store since it had closed down for the night.
In some ways, it was actually a fascinating process to watch. The person had found four or five different tools to use in the process, as well as needing at least to extra sets of hands.
They reduced the video time to a few minutes, but had actually spent two hours working, and twisting, and prying bits and pieces off of the lock. The video showed them using various tools to cut, bend, burn, and mangle the lock off. As they progressed through the video, they commented on how difficult of a job it was to remove the bottle lock, especially since they were trying to make sure the bottle didn’t break in the process.
Eventually they did succeed, but the video makers readily admitted that it would have been less frustrating just to wait until the store opened back up the next day. Had they been actual shoplifters, they would not have gone back for a second theft attempt after seeing how much time and effort was involved at removing the security device.
