    Vehicle Key Safe

    1 tap with a hammer and lot of the key to open locks are open. We even did that to our own padlocks on a boat when we lost the key. We even managed to do it on the wood wall next to the channel and then try and hit the lock with a rock, just broke it open. Thats why a disc type lock is much better, you cant really get to the shackle to cut it and you cant hit them open either. And try to get it in a spot where its not easy to get too so they cant even try it.

    copper is a bad idea, its so easy to cut with a simple saw, and you might even be able to just twist it off the lock.

    the key lives inside someones pocket most of its life. That means on a hot day its inside a sweaty pocket too, and they survive. I dont think it would be a big problem as long as you leave holes in the bottom like he did. That way it will never get filled up with water.

    and then some guy saw you putting it on your car, he walkes to it grabs it and drives off. And you insurance says well yeah no money for you mister, no keys no money.

    Unusual Uses for Zip Ties

    there are special cut off pliers that are not ground in to a double point like a knife, but only ground to a point from 1 side and the other side is flat. Those are flush cut, because you can put the flat side up to whatever you are cutting and cut flush with that edge. Those cutters also dont pinch the side that remains to a sharp point, they will leave a much flatter edge. But a special warning, you cant use those pliers for cutting metal, if you do they will bend the cutting edge and the pliers are ruined.(we had an inturn who did that to a brand new knipex, instant garbage)
