My name is Adrian Weber and I have been interested in locks since my early childhood. I mainly collect padlocks but also all sorts of other locks such as high security mechanical locks and safe locks. I have an extensive collection of antique books and catalogues on locks, safes and security. A few years ago I decided to make a job out of my hobby by applying to courses at the VDS in Germany. Now I am a VDS and CFPA certified security adviser in “Security” and “Security Management”, furthermore I am also VDS certified in “Safe and Vault Room Constructions”. Since then I have worked together with several international security companies in product research and development. In addition to that I specialise in professional security product reviews that I produce and then publish on my private “Adrian Weber” YouTube channel. For information about my previous work and projects please take a look at the “Projects” section.
Understanding not only the mechanical aspects of locks but also their history is essential for understanding security itself!
