More LockCon

Just a quick reminder: Lockon 2011 will take place in the weekend of October 21-23.

The location is the good old Sneek hostel, and the rules are more or less the same as last year(s). I expect to come out with more news on LockCon around Monday September 12.

We are still looking for people who want to give a presentation (although we already have quite some excellent talks scheduled).

Places are limited, so if you would like to come now would be a good time to let us know.

Hope to see you all there!

    That weekend, i’ll be on honeymoon. So i won’t visit LockCon this year. Hopefully next year!


  2. Barry says:

    Congratulations André!

    And I am not kidding when I say we can offer you the honeymoon suite in the hostel!

    Seriously 🙂

    ik wil !


  4. Woo-hoo, LockCon <3

    Barry, I could give a presentation of how to impression an Abloy Classic lock 🙂 I have almost finished article written about it with just a couple of pictures missing. It isn't that long but I suspect it would cover about 30-45 minutes.

    But I do have problem: I have no accommodation around the LockCon dates yet. I'm planning on flying from Tampere (FIN) to Bremen (GER) on Thursday, the day before LockCon and taking probably a bus to Groningen, but I don't have a ride or any kind of clue of how to get to Sneek from there.

    And return flight would be probably on Thursday on the following week (unless I get an earlier flight or other plans).

    Anyone have any ideas or know of accommodation and/or a place to crash? Seriously appreciated 🙂

    Het programma van de Lock Con. waar kan ik deze vinden ?

    Ik ben opzoek naar info van een kluis waarbij de baard van de sleutel soms schuin is.

  12. jord says:

    Wat bedoel je met soms, er zijn diversen kluis sloten waarbij het sleutelgat er anders uitziet dat we gewend zijn.

    heb meer info nodig wat je bedoeld.

  13. Flight plan is now made, I will fly on Thursday morning to Bremen and return flight is on Tuesday morning.

    I have an initial plan of getting a bus to Groningen from Bremen and then taking a train to Sneek via Leeuwarden and staying overnight in the StayOkay hostel. Also planning on staying overnight at the hostel after the LockCon (Sunday to Monday) and taking a train back to Groningen and a bus to Bremen, as my return flight leaves at 6:30 on Tuesday morning.

    IF someone from the Netherlands or Germany is going to Bremen or nearby after LockCon, I would appreciate getting a lift and/or a place to stay till Monday 🙂

  14. Scott Buckley says:

    Woohoo, hopefully I should be able to make it over again if everything falls into place. Can’t believe it’s been a year already!

    ben eruit en het heb het slot van de eigenaar mee mogen nemen en uitelkaar gehaald. De schuine stukjes van de baard hebben een funktie mbt het draaien van het sleutelhuis. wanneer je foto’wilt kan ik deze volgende week sturen weet alleen niet waar heen en hoe . De klaviertjes in het slot lijken qua principe op die van slotjes die Rosengrens gebruikt bij lockerslotjes.

    groetjes slagsleutel

  16. Ihan kiva että osa teistä osaa puhua hollantia, mutta valtaosa lukijoista ei sitä ymmärrä ja blogikin sattuu olemaan englanniksi, joten lienee suositeltavaa kirjoitella englanniksi. Kiitos 🙂

    olkaa hyvä Jaakko Fagerlund

    in my best google english:

    where can i find the program of LockCon so i can decide when i had to leave home.

    I am looking for material what explain the working of lever in a cilinder and why some parts of the beard are alternating rectangle with a triangle , I have seen this by rosengrens lockerlocks but then with a different key.

  18. Hi Frank

    “where can i find the program of LockCon so i can decide when i had to leave home.”

    Usually it is found from, but seems that it has last years dates still. I’m pretty sure once Barry has time that he will update here and/or there 🙂

    I’m sure most of the people will arrive Friday afternoon — evening, but I will be there already on Thursday (if travel plans don’t change) 🙂

  19. Einstein says:

    Looking forward to se you all again

    Btw scott b : can you bring me speedcuffs pleeeeease , ill pay in cash or alot of beer 🙂 haha


  20. Scott Buckley says:

    @Einstein I definately will! It’s no problem at all! I’m unsure if I’ll be there 100% but if I don’t come I’ll find away to get them over!


  21. Barry, any news of the event yet? 🙂

  22. frank says:

    Uh ??? € 65. – entrence for just visiting the event , the journey costs me € 50. Or do i missed something.

  23. frank, that is the usual sum of money for one day pass. And seems that the cost for the whole event (150 €) is the same as last year 🙂 Very reasonable amount in my opinion, though I’m always low on cash 😀

    It is only under a month, woo-hoo! 🙂

  24. NKT says:

    Come on Barry, give us all an update!

    We’ve booked our boat, anyway.

    Jos, been doing exactly that tonight – get some of the new X blanks and make your own perfect lockpick!

  25. frank says:

    Not everybody is welcome , it is a event only for who are invited. It’s a pitty , I will sell my scoope to a news paper otherwise is was worldnews in Sneek

  26. NKT says:

    frank, I’m guessing you missed quite a lot!

    Given the nature of the event, you have to be put forward, or know someone already. A place where we sometimes show how to open a specific vault or high security door lock, and actually open many, many regular locks, has to have a bit of screening.

  27. frank says:

    Well have a nice weekend……….looking at the program it becomes more and more an ordinary meeting of the few less. All the things that be discussed will be seen after a while on internet sites…. ……………………………………………………….what ?? i’m invited it will be a great event..unique… never seen before.

  28. NKT says:

    To be Frank, I’m an idiot.

    Being myself again, Frank, I’m not sure what your point is. Being a whiny bitch isn’t going to get you invited.

    The vast majority of what happens in the closed sessions never gets out onto the internet. If you knew what some of the stuff was, you could google it and find nothing out, for yourself.
