The lock appears to be quite strong, I've not had any issues with it anyway and I carry some fairly heavy books. The only customization I had them do to mine was to put push locks under the buckles...
Sorry about the cruddy cell phone pic, but it's all I have in the office. Here's my 1945 in whiskey, it's about two years old now. I carry my MacBook in it, and it's constantly stuffed full of books and paperwork. Tough enough for me, and I'm not particularly gentle with it.

If I remember correctly, there was a decent thread at the accursed other clothing website that described different makers. Might be worthwhile to track it down.
This one I think is the one you're talking about.

That's just crazy talk, man.
