Please note that I do not recommend locks, nor do I provide assistance in opening them. For advice getting started in locksport, I recommend the “University” at LockLab.com. For all other inquiries, email me (channel name at gmail). One final note - I usually receive over one hundred emails each day, and though I spend a couple hours a day answering emails, I can’t answer them all. Apologies in advance if your email is one that slips through the cracks.

    Just checked the Amazon listing, They actually changed the description to "wall mount & display" instead of "gun lock". They also admitted to not realize the trigger guard can be open when designing the "lock".

    If I saw this in the wild I would be tempted to open it to change the combination and leave the owner puzzled, like just change one of the numbers by 1 digit.

    How do they assemble such a lock in the factory??? By hand?

    Kind of unrelated, but do you find "cheap" locks to be harder to pick than more professional ones? I am just getting into lockpicking, and have notice higher quality locks are surprisingly easier to pick that cheapo ones. (I mean the cheapo ones I would just give it my boot heel if I really wanted to get it off, but that defeats the purpose, lol)

    You for got to mention that with a simple hand held grinder you can cut into a so called real safe as well. So all commercial safes are simply a deterrent.

    The best bit of that lock is the triangular metal insert in the packing/card - that must have cost more than the lock to make!

    This is a public service to show how absurdly flawed the design is. It should never be acceptable to open a safe this easily that is supposed to keep something as dangerous as a fire arm from children or other unwanted users. For shame homak security.

  • interwebtubes

    Very interesting, I remember coming across some keys that resembled those keys for some type of Master lock brand, I’m thinking that that particular padlock was a dual shackle design and it wasn’t that old of a model??; They were some really different key design

    I just watched an urban Hawk Chinese mechanical lock video this 16 year old kid showed some pretty amazing Chinese locks one of them had 48 Sliders in it. Sure would like to see you pick some of these what look to be pick proof locks. Some of them the core spins unless you put the key in it so you can't tension it. I hope you read this message have a great day

    Back in the day, I used my MX-6 key on my mate's 323, opened the door, started the car, moved it to a different part of the car park, and then waited for him to realise his car was missing. That was a fun evening.

    I have one of these and position it so that you have to move it significantly before you can unlock it, this means you wouldn't have time to pic it before the alarm goes off. Even practiced I sometimes am not quick enough with the key.

    When “lock picking tests ban the use of lock picks” is the code for safety, you know you’re living in the wrong state. 🤦‍♂️

  • TheHuffameg

    Are you really able to change the combination on this while the lock is locked? So someone can have locked their bike and when they come back there's a new combination on it. I'm guessing someone using this lock wouldn't know how to open it when they don't know the combination .

    I feel like it would be a good thing to use to attach a helmet to your bike, usually if they can't just pick it up and go they'll just leave

  • Zeke770

    I think this would work for a kid locking his bike at school. Or at least the rural schools around me. Something to look as if it’s not something that can just be walked away with anyways.

    This is still pretty perfect for a gym lock though, where the biggest obstacle to actually locking your stuff up is carrying a lock around, and it's a pretty high reward for having literally anything locking your stuff up when so many people just have open lockers to pick from.

  • Byvägen

    Clamped up like that, You wasted alot of heat into your vise jaws. Also wasted alot into that shackle pin. Had you torched just the top and clamped only the bottom, would have melted away faster.

    Funny! I ran into a lock that I could pick that way. Someone came to me wondering if I had a way to open a cheap combo lock. I looked at it, and noticed that if I pushed the shackle in, it increased the tension on the discs. I was able to open the lock in seconds. The owner was shocked, and threw the lock out. I've wondered how many of the cheap luggage locks have the same flaw. Locks are only as good as the person using it, and the person able to remove it.

    I recently had my rear wheel stolen to my ebike. My frame was locked with a heavy duty Abus security chain and Kryptonite Evolution Series 4, but not the rear wheel. I was thinking that no one would go through the trouble to removing my rear wheel as it would be of no value to anyone. My rear wheel contained a hub motor which is wired to only work on one make and model of ebike. After having my rear wheel stolen while my frame was locked, I could not help but ask myself why didn't I use my old Keeper U-Lock and cable as an extra measure? I understand that cables and Kryptonite Keeper U-Locks are low level security, but often times meth heads who are looking to quickly steal things for money may not even have a pair of wire cutters. Even if he did have a pair of cable cutters, he would need a pair of bolt cutters to snap my Kryptonite Keeper.
