atleast its better than ottolock
Seeing this makes me wonder how hard it is to open ZipCuffs of different types.
Save some cash by writing a note and taping it on to your ride saying " Hey thief! Please DON'T Steal my ride. Thanks. Have a nice day!"
I use this to keep my cheap commuter bike from being jostled around and messed up on the crowded racks on my college campus. Most people leave their commuter bikes un-secured, I just don't want my gearing or brakes jammed up.
That redbull can needs a name. It's opened more locks than some keys.
McGuiver would be disappointed you didn't shim it with a bubegum wrapper.
I would consider this more of a deterrent which isn't a bad idea depending on your needs. Then again, aren't most Locks merely a deterrent? 👌🤙
Chew some gum, stretch it out and tie it around your bike and you have a lock the same quality as this one and cheaper.
It looks really practical - but not as a lock, as a reusable, more stable zip tie (for example to secure load, or a ladder on a trailer). As a lock it's useless.
Red Bull, our cans have 1001 uses. Lol
That’s not a lock.....
LPL, do you have videos on how to make my own lock picks? Cannot find any, if not, could you consider making some? :)
Before I watch, I feel like this is a Red Bull can moment... Edit: I KNEW there was still some Red Bull can left over.
I think its more used for securing monitors or little autio divices in stores or in the office.
Very good for foreplay but my girlfriend keeps picking the lock.
ok so my front door "lock" is a rock but when its in front of my door its a lock because you cant open the door easily if its in place!! haha
Nice ein wiederverwendbarer Kabelbinder
I think you were Houdini in your last life..
But will the orange key open the cuffs?
Can you shim it from the other side and would a regular pair of scissors be able to cut it?
Well, at least it looks fine.
I use some that are similar but mainly to keep things from.flying from my truck when I'm moving stuff or going camping. I keep them in my truck just in case 🤷♂️
I’d use this for my motorcycle helmet
how does shit like this pass testing...
good for kinky sex though
It would be a better marketed product if it was labeled reusable zip tie
If you grab the bike and just yank it I feel like it'll do the job.
Red Bull Can 2: Electric Boogaloo
This would only be good in Japan where theft is very rare.
You can open all zipties like that... so does that make all zip ties "reusable key locks"?
What is the point of a "lock" that relies on the use of _another_ _lock_ for its' integrity? I guess this might be useful to applications like zip-tying your backpack to a park bench so no one walks away with it while you are having a picnic.
I could definitely see using that as a reusable zip tie, like for putting the padding on top of our roof rack for carrying kayaks. Definitely not as a bike lock though LMAO
They can't be serious with this shit...it's almost like they want people to have to buy more bikes after theirs get stolen. It's almost like they're in the business of selling bikes for profit. Almost.
I could see a use as a secondary way to secure a bike to a car mount, just incase one of the points fails. Better than zipties as it's stronger and reusable
Do you need another red bull can... You seem to be opening everything with it... Has red bull not been in contact to reveal next campaign advert. of red bull gives freedom when lost key campaign... Red bull reveals how to unlock freedom. Not by drinking though campaign...
You should not consider this product as a lock, but as a zip tie that can be opened with this key and used multiple times.
I sometimes think TLPL goes a little too far. If you demand non-shimable foolproof security on this type of product, you might as well abandon the whole productline. The fact is that there is a demand for a lockable zip-tie.
I could buy this as a reusable zip tie. Pretty cool. I guess it would be too expensive though
Considering majority of common theft is of things that can be easily snatched and ran with, even low security locks like these are a great thing to have around!
I think, if i would use this lock, i would tighten this lock to maximum. So you couldn't open the lock with a piece of a can, because of a lack of space or is it possible to open it on the other side too?
Is it just me or is "secondary locking device" just another way of saying "this lock is useless so only waste money on this if you have something useful as well".
Really not made to secure, bikes, but i use those to secure my helmets on my bike and my motocycle. It's not gonna resit more than a few second but it is enough to secure a really low value item to a already secure more expensive one (helmets, raingear ect)
This video would be hilarious if it were 5 seconds long... "This is the lock picking lawyer, and today, Bell has a zip tie for a lock" takes out snips and clips it "Thank you, that's all I have for today"
So my question is. Will the zip tie key open handcuffs?
This re-useable zip tie will be great because it will eliminate my having to get a new lock after each time I use one.
We have a proverb where I live: Locks are not for thieves, they're for honest people. I other words, no lock will stop a determined criminal, they're just for signaling to (honest) people "you don't have the right to go in here"
Anybody else think of the fact that they’re kinda selling handcuff keys?
The whole point of any cheap zip tie bike lock is that if you catch anyone ever picking or breaking it, you get to mace them so you can then use the zip lock to cuff their hands and feet together, then you can wait for the police OR you can instead drag them with your car. See, not such a waste of money afterall. (Just for fun, I like to leave a coiled 100' line attached to their feet, then speed off so they can watch the coil uncoil before lift off)! This method efficently fixes several problems and would-be problems all at once.
@Matt Bergman See, just talking about it worked!
For the shim though you put it on the inside which if the band is around something may not be easy to do
I've had Bell motorcycle helmets many years ago. Their name has been synonymous with top quality motorcycle products for decades. Why on earth would they lend their name to such an utter piece of garage completely eludes me.
Red Bull gives you..... KEYS?
This shit could literally only exists under the shit storm we know as capitalism... Nobody on earth needs a product this poorly thought out/made, yet it exists. I have this same issue with Headphones... I go to the store and see over 100 options in the headphone racks when half of them don't even work properly, or will stop working 3 weeks into owning them. I mean, we've only been working on the headset for 110 years... You'd think we'd have it together by now..
Good for child proofing
That's just silly
To be clear I have a number of these and do use them for a bike. They are great to lock up your bike when you stop for a coffee and sat near it. It does three things well. First it stops your bike falling over. Second it make someone else’s bike look quicker to steal than yours. Third, I can lock my helmet to the bike.
isn't every lock "reusable"?
Ok well who is ever gonna have 2% or a redbull can lying around
Is that the prototype Ottolock Lite?
As a stagehand, I’ve always got a red bull and a pair of wire cutters on me. So even if I am chocked full of caffeine and too giddy to cut up and use my red bull can, that lock ain’t living for long with the wire cutters.
Zipties are already reusable.
So,I guess you don't want to buy this swampland I have for sale either.
I MIGHT think it was a decent lock for a 1 minute bathroom stop in a pinch. Versus nothing.
Thank you for the nice day ending ☺️ To you as well, thank you
I think its a cool product and has many uses just not as a lock if it was branded as a re usable zip tie and you could buy a package of multiple for not to much money id be all over it but as a lock ill stick to my locks got an abloy enforcer
It seems like it might be okay for keeping your bike tire from spinning while it is on a rack on the back of your car.
Wire Cutters: Imma end this mans whole career
This thing is just to lock your helmet to your bike. If you're just quickly going into a shop for a few minutes this is actually quite useful and very light. I'd actually consider buying it if it's cheap enough.
Sooo it’s a lock for a lock?
The production of this shite should be a crime against humanity
I think you could remove that lock with scissors.
There are so many things that could be used for and be a great product but they thought fuck the consumers we'll just tell them any old shit What a shame just rebrand and you have a great product that could be Child proofed whatever An actual cable tie/tidy Etc etc But no we have a "lock" that even they admit is useless on its own
put it on isle 14 in lowes as an ACTUAL re-usable zip tie.... it move MILLIONS
It's hard for me to fathom that this product isn't an actual joke...
He couldn't pick it! Wow!
This guy is like all men when they have to open a beer.. any item will get the job done as long as you are creative with it
I could chew through that.
Found it for sale on walmart.com for *$4.96!* 🤣🤣🤣
Bell is Walmart junk brand
This lock is for when u can watch your bike but can be right next to it
So I left my keys inside my house and instead of calling my parents to come I use the last of my battery to see one of his videos and I had of can of Red Bull so I tried to enter but I couldn’t enter in till I remembered its a 6 digit lock so I can simply enter the code and make it inside 10/10 recommend watching lockpickinglawyer (I enjoy watching your videos I didn’t mean that in a rude way)
So let’s just recap: Only use this if you already have a perfectly working lock 😆😆😆 So basically your reinforcing a lock with a much cheaper thin zip tie looking look😆😆😆
looks like some bdsm tool
Can't u just cut that
Im not at all saying it's a good lock, but you probably wouldn't have room to get a strip of can into the back side of the rachet mechanism. It would ideally be pulled flush against whatever it is locking, yeah?
Dont buy this lock macgyver might steal your bike
That Red Bull can is far more reusable than any of these locks.
A lock that requires another lock to be effective 🤪 yeah they know what they are doing, it’s a nice cash grab
Just when you think you’ve seen it all....
Now, I don't think it's fair to tell people to avoid entirely. Sure, you should avoid using it as a security device. But it's still good for anything you'd use a normal zip-tie for, with the added bonus of being able to re-use it.
Looks like something I would use to clean up cable runs for my entertainment center
If the bike is already locked why buy this stupid lock
The real question is, does the bell key work of zip tie cuffs?
It's a brilliant idea if you want to tie something down or onto something. I don't think this is designed for security, it's just for what zipties are usually for.
This might be good for locking your toddlers out of low cabinets, maybe?
I want to buy padlock, but after watching few LPL video, I decided just welding whatever I want to lock.
