NP Lockout King
06/12/10 Late Friday evening, for one of the security guard for the final episode of "Terriers" (which just finished filming here in North Park), the CLICK sounded as loud as a gunshot! Lucky for him, it was ONLY the sound of his car door locking itself with his keys still inside. Bystanders gathered, asking who do security guards turn to when they themselves are in trouble and they need to gain access? In this case, it was a NP local hero that answered the call. Chris a "semi-retired" Locksmith appeared seeming out of thin air and in less time than a professional car jacker had the car door open and was getting high fives from everyone. When asked to reveal his slight of hand secret, he replied, "6000 hours of practice" and then pointed proudly to his bumper sticker which said it all, "I'll Get You In If I Have To Break A Window"...
