Congress Announces Bill Banning Facial Recognition in Public Housing

Yesterday, congresswomen Ayanna Pressley (MA-07), Yvette D. Clarke (NY-09) and Rashida Tlaib (MI-13) announced legislation that would prohibit the use of biometric recognition technology in most public and assisted housing units funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), with the goal of protecting tenants from “biased surveillance technology,” according to a press release from Pressley. Currently, more than two million residents live in public housing nationwide. This is the first federal legislation restricting biometric technology for use on tenants. [Read More via SDM Magazine]

A3 SFIC Decoding Worksheet Added to Tools

We’ve added a decoding worksheet for A3 small format interchangeable cores (SFIC) to our Pinning and Decoding Worksheets page in the Tools section. You can use this worksheet when removing pins to decode an SFIC using an A3 system. The worksheet allows you to plot each pin position and has all measurements for A3 pins to reference. It also has a formula built in to help you quickly decode the control key.

Walter Best applied for a patent for what would become the A3 system in 1968. Granted in 1971, this patent was BEST’s first venture into a single step progression system. Unfortunately, the increment size was too small. Worn cores were especially vulnerable to key interchange and jamming (due to the small size of a #1 master pin). Eventually the A3 system was replaced in favor of A4, which utilized a larger increment size while still allowing for single step progression. There are still some A3 systems out there and at least one manufacturer was still generating new A3 systems as late as the early 21st century. Suffice to say, this worksheet is still useful!

Federal Circuit Holds that Section 230 Locks Out Locksmiths

As we noted in our recent post on the Second Circuit case Herrick v. Grindr, LLC, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) continues to provide immunity to online intermediaries from liability for user content, despite pressure from courts and legislatures seeking to chip away at this safe harbor. The Federal Circuit case Marshall’s Locksmith Service Inc. v. Google, LLC serves as another example of Section 230’s resiliency.
In Marshall’s Locksmith, the Federal Circuit affirmed the dismissal of claims brought by 14 locksmith companies against search engine operators Google, Microsoft and Yahoo! for allegedly conspiring to allow “scam locksmiths” to inundate the online search results page in order to extract additional advertising revenue.

Introducing Lock.Chat


Our Slack chat was a great success but we needed something a bit more robust and conducive to our goals. We wanted an online community that allowed the sharing and archiving of lock related files (videos, PDFs, documents) in addition to chat features. Slack allowed us some of that but not all; we were at the behest of a provider and our capabilities were capped. With that said, I’d like to introduce


Utilizing the free, open-source Rocket.Chat platform, we have created a new community at using our own VPS. This puts us in complete control of what we can accomplish with this community. The community heart of the community are the channels, or areas of discussion. The channels are where we communicate and share information, pictures, files, and more.
Lock-related channels include:

  • Locks
  • Locksmithing
  • Locksport
  • Safes

We also have a few “off-topic” channels:

  • Food
  • Gardening
  • Telephones

If you participated in the original Slack, your transition will be seamless because the two platforms are almost identical. If you are new to either, I think you’ll find is very easy to use. Best of all is on available all platforms: web, desktop, and mobile (Android, iOS, Windows). Registration is easy, simply navigate to in your browser and complete the signup process. Once you have done so, you can use your login information to access the community via the Rocket.Chat app (server URL is, you guessed it,
Please take a moment to sign up and come visit us over at – I think you’ll find your experience very enjoyable!
