Phil Hobbs got his nickname "Drill Bits" after he successfully cracked a bank vault called the "Mosler Monster" at the former Permanent Savings & Loan, Meriden, Connecticut, USA.

The 83-year-old founder of Phil's Lockshop Inc. was also a practical joker. Hobbs died Friday after spending a lifetime helping others unlock doors, crack safes, share a laugh, and understand God.
