She says if she hears glass breaking she'll run to the bedroom and get her shotgun, but I keep telling her she'll be to startled to react fast enough. Then she just says, "but you've got your two on you don't you?"

Again, nobody thinks that locks are 100% secure in general, and anyone who thinks that hotel rooms are particularly secure is fooling themselves.

However, I'm not especially fond of the notion that ALL 2 million hotel rooms using this lock are WIDE OPEN to anyone with a little bit of hardware at any time.

I assume that right this minute a variety of criminal enterprises are building hotel-door-room-openers in dry erase markers and a wide variety of other everyday objects, and using/selling them. If not, I think I just found a new business model.

Ever stop to think why hotels not in casino towns have safes in the room?

If you use the hotel room safe, you are a much more accomplished fool then one who would confuse a private room in a public space - to which they have one of an unknown number of keys for - with a secure location.

Anyone who is surprised by how easily door locks are bypassed should maybe look into the same for the hotel room safe.

I've never used one with a key. They have electronic programmable locks. You set your own code. That's not to say they don't have a "master" code. When in doubt, have valuables locked in the safe at the front desk. Then again, a buddy that traveled to Peru had his passport stolen when terrorists stole the hotel safe.
