    In our house the pc was far from phone jack and when you wanted to dial up you unrolled a 5m cable from modem to phone jack. Parents trick was hiding the long cable. My trick was moving entire pc to next to phone jack and moving everything back before they got home. Also our 286 had one of those keyboard locks which all you had to do was open the lid and unplug. Parents locked and unlocked it not even knowing it was completely disconnected inside on the motherboard

    My grandfather had to put a lock on the house phone because my uncle would run up the phone bill calling girls. I could see using a lock like that, especially if you had people in your home (like my uncle) that you couldn't trust with a connection.

    Even as a kid back in the '80s I could open a wafer lock with a small screwdriver and a paperclip. With something like this I probably wouldn't have bothered, though. I'd have modified an extra cord to use black and yellow instead of red and green, and added a switched bridge somewhere else on the line so I could flip it and activate the jack, while killing red/green in the rest of the house. How do I know I'd have done that? Because I did, not because of one of these but to keep anybody from accidentally picking up a phone and dialing while I was online.

    I’m guessing that’s why in the modern day we use internet passwords.... oh, wait. That doesn’t help at all considering most people are lazy and use something personal as a password. I tend to just hit up random number generators, generate several ten digit numbers, and make my password a completely random math problem. Good luck to anyone trying to guess my passwords. You’ll need it. Lol.

    I used to break in my dad's locker and it only had a wafer lock. I used a simple hairpin as a key. Stuck it in and 'jiggled' it 'til it opened. I had access to his guns but I couldn't tell him 'cause he woulda whooped my ass for even attempting. It was such a garbage lock tho, and if my parents used this stuff, it would not have slowed me down.

    You don't even need to pick the lock or have any knowledge. You just need a screwdriver. Unscrew the socket from the wall and connect the 2 wires with something. Lock is bypassed. You could even just unattach the wires from the lock and twist the ends together.

    We did that with my friend in the 1990’s Since phone was 4 wires, we looped all the phone lines in his house through the jack in his bedroom. We got a hobby box from radio shack and installed a momentary switch and a toggle switch. The momentary switch disconnected all the phones in the house temporarily, and the toggle switch was for privacy. This way he could kick off his brothers and sisters off the phone and the toggle switch was to disable all the other extensions so nobody could listen in. It worked good until he went to school and forgot to turn all the other extensions on. His father called the phone company to come out and fix it. We go there after school and the guy from AT&T is there fixing the phones. He was impressed with our handy work and was laughing when he figured out what we did
