    • 0-1 = Novice
    • 2-25 = Apprentice
    • 26-50 = Adept
    • 51-75 = Expert
    • 76-254 = Master

; Is the lock very easy?
if (WeakChestProperty.GetLockLevel() == 0)
  Debug.Trace("Lock is very easy")

This function fetches the lock level for a given lock in a much more robust way, making scripting locked objects significantly easier.
