    Anyone know how to open DVD Security cases?

    My library started to put these cases on the DVDs. If someone could instruct me on how to open these cases, would be greatly appreciated.

    Here are even better pictures of the case:

    Ohh.....I found the company that makes the technology. I think it's magnetic lock. Guess I'm out of luck

    There's a video on this site to see the demo of the thing in action.

    WTF?

    I'm guessing you could do it with a screwdriver. Or maybe if the locking mechanism has holes in which things insert you could use some pointy things.

    Why do you ask? Do you plan on stealing them?

    Some type of magnet. You slide the end of the case with the security device showing into a "magnet holder" and it slides out.

    I've seen these several times. If you look behind the counter at your "library" you should see them.

    Anyway, good luck.

    OK, let me explain. All the PCs in my public library have DVD players, and we have DVDs available for rental at $1.00. Yes, I know it's a pittance, but until they had implemented these DVD cases, they just had the original DVD cases that housed them from retail. So, basically one had the freedom to watch whichever, whenever.

    I'm assuming the library figured, if they are to collect more rental fees, they should implement the security cases.

    I'll just pony up the $1.00. I wish I managed to watch more of the movies before they implemented the case :[

    you need a magnet positioned in the right direction in order for it to unlock.
    when i used to work at blockbuster they used that same case and lock.

    but the easiest way is with some heavy duty scisors and break the case open since you cannot get any of the unlockers easily.

    I'd say do it with a razor, sharp knife. Maybe that will be much easier.

    Try this

    This video shows the method well for opening various types of these boxes. Believe me I know the feeling being locked out because someone screwed up. Why waste the gas going back!

    The guy at blockbuster never took mine off, and all I did was jam my car key in the top part and snap a bit off, then took it back to the store where he just used pliers to take the rest off.

    I remember when some kid at school stole a CD, brought it to school and couldn't for the life of him get that big plastic security thing off. Looked like a waste of time to save 10 bucks.

    In your case, this is an enormous waste of time to save 1 buck.

    My first day of work at an electronics store, we had magnetic security boxes for SD cards, USB drives, and other small items. No one told me about them, so I figured you just had to push the little knob, and that the knob on my particular box was jammed. I ended up opening it with a fire exstinguisher.

    / end shinfo.
