      Are door knob or slide bolt locks harder to pick?

  • pcbeanhead

    These locks are actually more often than not used in a key exchange system, a solenoid operated unit exists as part of a machines electrical safety circuit and the safety architecture determines when the key can be released, that key is then removed and used to either exchange for a guard key (where multiple keys are released by that master key simultaneously) or used to open a single guard.

    Well, it's not exactly an anti theft device, its just there to prevent accidental or negligent operation of a machine, so difficulty to defeat is not the main goal.

    LPL: this should be the lock/key for the nukes!!1 Also LPL: don’t use this because it doesn’t require any skill whatsoever to pick. Infact you don’t even need to pick it, just push these four little blocks out of the way and you’re good to go... LOL

  • onefixitman

    It is designed to keep really stupid people in factories from doing the wrong thing and only allowing a person with proper clearance to turn the switch on. I worked in factories for 11 years. They work great in that setting. Good to know how to pick it. Great video.

    Me : "huh, 1 minute and 40 seconds video? I think this is only an introduction video of the lock or something." LPL : *started to pick it after 46 seconds, and only took about 20 seconds to unlock it* What the ffuuuuu?! And he still has another time to do outro for the video in a calm way too. Literally didn't expect to be picked that quick.

    as a user of this, merely turning it will do nothing. The key HAS to be inside for the contacts to be actuated. Moreover, you can't really pull out the key if it's on. I mean.. you CAN... but you just destroyed the lock... The use of this is NOT for lock-out tag out. It's for local sequence operation. For exemple, if you have an hydraulic pump that needs to be shut down, you have the technician shut down the pump by turning the key OFF, remove the key from the PUMP lock, place it in the Accumulator Discharge Valve Bypass Power ON lock, turn it on to release and discharge pressure. It becomes impossible to do one and the other at the same time. That's the idea behind this product.

    Looks like same kind as safety keys from inside Windturbines to access the hub.

  • PsychoLucario

    ive seen these on the gates around robot arms and other automated equipment in its own area. Basically if you have the key they can't shut the interlock and thus can't restart the machinery. the key stays in the lock and is only removed when entering the operational area

    I wonder how many skilled criminals able to pick locks with ease is out there. Not many i think.

  • inchekpemerhati

    if it is for industrial use, especially with that kind of built, normally (not always) it is merely to prevent accidental or spontaneous abuse. not to guard against trained and intentional picking.

    Although this is super easy to pick, I love the looks of it. Maybe I'll get one as a power switch for a non-nuclear project. :)

    To start the launch sequence for a Titan II ICBM launch required two keys, ~ 15 feet apart, to be turned within 2 seconds of each other. Thus it didn't matter what kind of keys they were since they couldn't be turned together by one person. (unless you were a BMAT, then a 6" wire with clips on the ends were attached to a terminal block that bypassed the launch keys...) Also the keys were kept in a red safe, with two pad locks that only the two launch officers had the combo for and both officers were armed. Later in the use of the Titan II, there was a electronic lock on the stage one oxidizer feed that could only be unlocked by a code not kept on site. Once that lock onboard the missile was installed, no one was going to launch the missile without that code. Retired BMAT, 784 alerts under Kansas.

    Generally these locks are not actually locks as in protecting valuables. The idea is in order to remove the key you have to turn it off (rotate it) this turns off the equipment it is protecting, isolating it. You then use the same key to open the equipment to work on we're it then locks into place until the equipment is closed again, when the key can be removed. Each key being unique to an item of equipment.

    It's not really a security product, it's as you say, a safety unit, to prevent accidental power cycle. Nobody is going to accidentally pick this.


    i watched all of your videos . Now i can easily enter in and out of my crushes home 😌

    OK, what if we make a lock with an electronic shield blocking the pins and the key has NFC, so you need the nfc tag + physical key to open at the same time.. that would probably be somewhat tricky for LPL.. It couldn't be defeated totally by hacking or by lock picking and the nfc thingy in the chamber would make it hard to pick around even if you somehow got that part down.

  • Eileen the Crow

    in all honesty that looks easier to pick than the average lock because you can actually see all the pins lol.

    We use keys like this at work to shut off a robot arm if you need to go inside the cage to fix something. The robot is off when the key is out so picking this lock makes it possible to get smacked in the head by a big robot. I'll make sure no one is messing with the locks whenever I am in the cage from now on XD.

    This lock got me thinking. Would a lock with a cover that you need to hold open, or some other thing that required multiple fingers to hold make trying to pick the lock significantly harder just because you only have two hands? I feel like this would have been harder to pick if it was installed in a panel.

    The key usually remains in the lock at all times and if it is missing it just means you can't turn the equipment on

    Castell interlocks are not used for security, they are operation safety locks. Idea is that with a dangerous part of a machine unlocked/open the machine cannot be started (you have two locks and only one key which is held in the unlocked lock). Still interesting to see one picked.

    LPL: “There’s nothing about this lock that should take more than a couple of seconds to defeat” Me: *wonders if we should double check the security of all nuclear launch sites*

    There should be a law: You shall not build locks where the key weights twice as much as the lock itself.

  • forrest225

    industrial interlocks like this really aren't designed for security. They are just there to make it so someone cant just walk up and start a piece of equipment. Same goes for safety locks. lots of them have a plastic body.

  • bosshoss69lee

    You’re right lpl I’ll tackle that lock in under a minute, no problem, it’ll literally take longer for my to put the gauges on my torch tanks then it will to defeat this lock.... I mean it can’t be secure if it’s a liquid 😏

  • Videogamee

    Ok at this point he knows what he's doing

  • OneWingedShark

    Given that the stated intention for the lock is timing-control, rather than security, is it really fair to fault it for "taking a couple of seconds to defeat"?

  • Dark

    I at least think it's fair that this shouldn't really be called a lock in the traditional sense, especially since you mentioned that it was mainly to prevent machinery from accidentally running.

  • Valmorian

    so, are you really a lawyer at work?

  • Mark

    I use them all the time on job sites. They are mainly for idiot 1 and idiot 2 not to kill each other on a machine because they don't know how to lock out correctly, we'll and don't care. They are easy to bypass because 75%of the time the wires are jumped on the electronics.

    You didn't really pick it correctly, in all the movies there are two of these and they must be turned at the same time. So technically you should pick two of these and turn them at the same time.

  • PsychoLucario

    these are used on gates around robot arms and automatic equipment, you can't lock the gate and thus re-activate the equipment unless you have the key, and trying to pick it to start would probably get you a mean look from the guy who's holding the key

  • theXEN0KID

    And here I thought LPL actually found a lock secure enough to put on a nuke. Were it so easy....
