Its always important to know how much security your getting.
You always have to decide upon the correct balance between cost, effectiveness, and convenience when dealing with security.
As a consumer I have a need to know whether a $200 lock is any better more secure than a $5 lock, and have a rough idea of the tools, skills, and time required to defeat each so I can make good decisions.
And you simply cannot trust the creators of security products and services to seek out and make you aware of the limitations of their products.
I go to a manufacturer's site and it has a video of someone spending an hour clumsily smashing a lock with a sledge hammer. I go to you tube and I see that a random 11 year old girl with two simple tools needs about 5 minutes to learn how to defeat the lock in 11 seconds.
