They are very popular with BDSM enthusiasts. It’s also one of the safer parts of BDSM play.

it’s manifestly unfit for any purpose, and the company that makes it has said they can’t afford to fix the flaws.

At the end of the video, though, he shows how applying 3v to the motor leads will release the lock – no need for an angle grinder next to your junk.

If you look closely at DC you can see one being used at the Naval Observatory.

Mother has the key.

I find your lack of faith in the LockPickingLawyer disturbing.
