Shopping cart locks use emf

info on how to use phone to unlock shopping cart wheels :

Most electronic shopping cart wheels listen for a 7.8 kHz signal from an underground wire to know when to lock and unlock.

Since 7.8 kHz is in the audio range, you can use the parasitic EMF from your phone’s speaker to “transmit” a similar code by playing a crafted audio file.
