    Locks aren't fool proof, no matter how good the lock is. Someone truly determined to get through a lock is going to find a way. What LPL point is, is that it will hold up against what you might typically expect to be thrown at it from an average dishonest person. Secure it and prevent basic picking; but it isn't going to hold against dedicated tools for destroying or picking at an advanced level. That is what the lock is advertised for... a basic lock.

    Comments on this site is a little bit more about the position of the day of work to get the best way to get the best way to get the best way for me, but I am a beautiful person who sent me a call to discuss the details of your life and death of the year

    Damn Amazon is taking over. They make great locks, batteries and the best motor oil. What next?

    $26 for a "good enough for low security" lock? Hmmm . . .

    Obviously this isn't important to the quality of the lock, but aesthetically it looks very nice.

    every time you say " the pick Bosnian Bill and I made" i feel like i hear ... "the pick BOSNIAN BILL NYE MADE" new nick name for Bosnian Bill-nye ! just thought id share maybe give you a good laugh

  • americanswan

    There are locks LPL cannot pick. Those few locks are rare, like not currently being made, or quite expensive. These disc cores seem to be the best right now. Without a special tool, a well made lock would be a decent buy.

    wow. This is a hell of a lot better than a lot of expensive locks

  • ktlewis02

    Bought one for the shed based on this glowing review - "better than I was expecting" - incredible!

  • hollowaysteve

    I don’t know how much this cost before the video but it’s now £32! I’m guessing it’s gone up...

  • Ziolek2000

    My shed padlock is so secure even its own key struggles to open it

    IIRC Stainless steel is harder than mild steel by a fair amount. Might actually stand up fairly well against hacksaws and similar too.

  • GreatMarine3

    Me: oh it’s not longer than 3 minutes must be another shitty lock

    does anyone have a link to where I can learn more about the lock pick that he made with bosnian bill.

    I'm a simple man. I see "the pick that Bosnian Bill and I made", I hit like.

    I haven't watched this channel in a while. Just checked out 2 vids. Is he using this custom pick in all of them now? Seems almost like cheating lol. Also, can I buy one? Is there a DIY tutorial somewhere?

    If you were 'breaking' into a house you would not have the benefit of seeing the keys beforehand. I am not saying it is cheating but it gives you information about the lock internals before you a picked up a tool. Keys should not be viewed by you until after the lock is successfully picked.

  • Wednesday

    I would say its a good lock when you need the custom tool you and Bosnian Bill made to to go this fast. Its not often one has to deal with professional pickers so this is a great lock for most people

  • RWBHere

    Cannot find it on Amazon...... Have Master Lock bought them all, to study, and then release a budget version?

    LPL: Better than expected! me who has already lost faith in all locks: Great, now I can lock my house, car, 15k road bike, possibly my storage room and my shed.

    One thing I learned from watching this channel is that 99.9% of models of locks are below average, including this one. The other 0.1% are average.

  • megalexantros

    Everyone in the comments: This lock got recommended! OMG! Me: What about The Pick That Bosnianbill And I Made™?

  • Kyle Didur
    Kyle Didur

    So the only way to pick it is with a specialty almost one of a kind tool that was home made? I’d say that’s a damn good lock then not counting that you can cut it open - which almost any lock can have done to it.

    LPL You should have Amazon Affiliate links to these locks you review.

    What budget padlock body with 10mm -14mm shackle would you recommend? Better with a crappy replaceable euro cylinder core. I want to use with a chain.

    Did you know that AmazonBasics is just rebranded normal items? They do this to have inventory directly available in warehouses vs online shops that might not. So the lock you are picking is just a normal lock made by some name brand company that they don't disclose for contract.

    2 minutes to be picklocked in a safe environment from a guy who can unlock everything it's not a bad time to be honest.

    Your voice sounds like a combination of the narrator from "Welcome to Nightvale" and Lemony Snicket's narration of "The Series of Unfortunate Events" (I believe he only narrated books 3-5).

  • exodous02

    I think anything 'Amazon Basics' is 'pretty good'. I'm always hesitant to get them but when I do I always think 'it isn't that bad but for a few bucks more I could have gotten something way better'.

  • 1nm1

    LOVE your reviews....however, hearing you say it is good enough for a garden shed shocked me!! Many people keep a lawnmower and/or snow blower in the garden shed. While the lock is essentially pick resistant to most people, it can barely resist any destructive attacks which are far more likely to occur. And for that reason alone I would strongly NOT recommend the lock for a garden shed, etc.

    Considering you need a special or custom pick tool, that already seems like it would thwart any low level thieves. (Thieves don't usually pick locks anyway.)

    If you need this special tool you made yourself and couldn't or didn't buy it definitely is good enough

    Wow! That is saying a lot. Sales for this lock went up dramatically.🤣

  • TragestyX

    Damn them lockpicking skills that I should have learned decades ago haha

  • 57thorns

    Better than expected and adequate for a low security application. Good praise, and probably good value for locking your garden tool shed, if you build it our of sturdy wood and use a decent quality hasp correctly installed. Nothing more really, if you have an old beaten lawn mover this is good enough, if you have a new riding one, probably not.

    Took 72 s. Not bad at all (60 s or 1 minute from world's best lockpicker[s] is what I figured is good rule of thumb.), though admittedly working at a leisurely pace. But the point I want to note here is that Amazon advertises it _honestly:_ "Basics" - which means home/consumer-grade products. The honest stuff is actually often better than the dishonest stuff (all those cheap shit ones labeled "maximum security" with overly-aesthetically-busy [yuck!] packaging that aren't anywhere close; and consider also the elegant, spartan style of the delivery of this piece. Lovely.). Gee, whodda thunk it, eh? Those that don't over-promise may actually deliver.

    “The pick that Bosnian Bill and I made” should be the only true name for that disk detainer pick. Also, especially great comments section for this one.

    I want to see you pick a Disk detainer lock without the fancy Pick just to see how hard it actually is for the average person Like You're saying "It's not very difficult to pick" But you're using a specialized tool designed specifically to pick this kind of lock, the kind of tool the average thief won't have access to
