    have a script on my phone that locks the modem/router for everything except the phone. When I started computing, I'd was in a dumb terminal wired to delta net at my high school. There were no home pics, no one could afford one

    This is similar to the chicken-or-egg problem... "What was first? The chicken or the egg?" "You want to watch LPL videos, but you cant watch them until you see a LPL video on how to open the internet lock."

    Is there a way to turn the lock back to the locked position without the key?... If as a child one left the lock in the "open" position with parents like mine, they'd notice I was up to trouble

    The lock itself should still work with anything up to current ADSL lines, things are starting to change a bit now with a lot more fiberoptic going directly to homes as well as fixed wireless, but in general, assuming your kids or whoever else your trying to lock out of the internet doesn't just have a smartphone with 3g/4g/5g internet access, this would still work to some extent today, ignoring its security flaws obviously. Broadband over the last few decades hasn't really changed much on the home or even state infrastructure level, its all been using most of the same copper from dialup and regular phone connections, we've just learned how to use use that copper more effectively to transmit data at higher speeds, with that comes more sensitivity to things like interference, so its possible something like this lock could cause issues with a broadband connection, but based on some of the dodgy wiring jobs I've done on connections in a rush before, it'll probably still work fine.

    Just unscrew the thing from the wall. Put a reed contact between the contacts of the lock, shortcutting the lock. Put it back on the wall. Put a magnet on a string, and put the magnet near the reed contact. This way the lock keeps locked, and internet works. When you hear the door when your parents come home, pull the string, en there's nothing to see.

    In our house the pc was far from phone jack and when you wanted to dial up you unrolled a 5m cable from modem to phone jack. Parents trick was hiding the long cable. My trick was moving entire pc to next to phone jack and moving everything back before they got home. Also our 286 had one of those keyboard locks which all you had to do was open the lid and unplug. Parents locked and unlocked it not even knowing it was completely disconnected inside on the motherboard

    Even as a kid back in the '80s I could open a wafer lock with a small screwdriver and a paperclip. With something like this I probably wouldn't have bothered, though. I'd have modified an extra cord to use black and yellow instead of red and green, and added a switched bridge somewhere else on the line so I could flip it and activate the jack, while killing red/green in the rest of the house. How do I know I'd have done that? Because I did, not because of one of these but to keep anybody from accidentally picking up a phone and dialing while I was online.

    I’m guessing that’s why in the modern day we use internet passwords.... oh, wait. That doesn’t help at all considering most people are lazy and use something personal as a password. I tend to just hit up random number generators, generate several ten digit numbers, and make my password a completely random math problem. Good luck to anyone trying to guess my passwords. You’ll need it. Lol.

    I used to break in my dad's locker and it only had a wafer lock. I used a simple hairpin as a key. Stuck it in and 'jiggled' it 'til it opened. I had access to his guns but I couldn't tell him 'cause he woulda whooped my ass for even attempting. It was such a garbage lock tho, and if my parents used this stuff, it would not have slowed me down.
