Thoughts on Lockpicks as a prize for a contest???

  • eostresh Saturday, September 1, 2012 8:02 PM Reply
    Okay I am running a promotional contest for a book I will release soon. The contest is to plan a heist so lockpicks was kind of the logical prize. Here is the contest(It may be of interest to some of you) http://the-boxman.com/2012/08/19/are-you-the-next-mastermind/


    I chickened out of sending lockpicks myself as a prize. (worried about legal issues) The credit card pick set is actually my ideal prize http://dx.com/p/credit-card-lock-picking-pocket-wallet-kit-5-piece-set-36264 My second plan was to just give a gift certificate to DX. I found out that they don't do gift certificates so that is out too. So I am asking the forum if anyone can offer up alternative suggestions or advice on legal problems with sending lock picks as a prize?

    Thanks

    Are you sure you're not just trying to "pick" other peoples brains for fresh ideas to steal stuff? If not, I'm pretty sure that in most areas of my country, lockpicks are considered as "burglary tools" unless you're a professional locksmith. ( U.S. ) Anyway, how about a prepaid debit card. Than they could buy whatever they want.
    NO! I don't know why DX screwed up the site so badly.
    Ask them.

    haha No, not trying to steal promotional ideas. I think the contest itself should be pretty fun. Like I said, just a question of prizes and how to distribute. The debit card is a good idea. I still just wish DX had a gift certificate. So many fun gadgets here!

    You could include a recommendation for dx. along with a brief explanation (such as lockpicks etc.)of the gadgets that dx. offers in with the card. P.S. If someone did buy a lockpick set it could not be connected to you in any way. P.P.S., Hope your book does well.

    That is not a bad idea. Just refer folks to DX in a link.

    Far too lazy to enter your contest,but here's my plan:
    1) get bitten by radioactive spider
    2) stick to walls and ceilings
    3) break in

    Or,since it's in the basement,just dig a tunnel from a safe location(but not traceable to yourself afterwards) to the basement,the walls are often reinforced with steel,but think the floors are? ;)

    pm feature is not really pm,but a notice by typing @username_
    For example @eostresh will make you get a notice in your email

    Posting e-mails unfortunately isn't allowed for spam reasons,but I get your email from your contest site :)
    I'll send you one asz soon I found some improvements to my plan :)
