I have found over the years, that companies throw the "high security" label on anything that is difficult to open with bolt cutters.
I actually bought this a 6 or 7 months ago for a gate lock. Tried to pick it multiple times via rake or single after I started locksport about a month ago. Nada. Then I watched this and realized how much tension is needed (way more than you'd expect) and bingo...got it while single pin picking about 5 times in a row. Just tried again and it's like I lost my feel for it. Oh, well.
amazon is filled with people just reselling stuff from china, but with a way higher price tag.
At the mechanics shop I work at, they work great cause they’re frozen all of the time, and I doubt the average petty thief carries a blowtorch.
That's the lock we used on our house, and we got burgled :(
To be fair, most Amazon choice items are the best quality and/or value. I think they get that rating based on reviews and the amount of returns they get.
Practice lock for beginers maybe?
Halfway through the video and he hasn't started. Just shows how bad it is.
i opened one of these locks very similar came off a uhaul truck... took me a lot longer than lpl
There's no mystery to what Amazon's choice is. Just hover over the label with a mouse.
This looks like a good Lock to get to lock up something you intentionally WANT someone to steal... cause the Item to Steal is a Red Herring.
He’s a BOSS !
Lpl: look how easy this lock is to pick Me with the exact same lock and has been working to pick it for well over an hour: yes
I'm looking at the key and I cannot figure out how that key is supposed to interact with five pins. Are three of the pins 0 cuts??
Heh, well... I'm guessing it's considered "high security" because it's hard to break or cut, since those things take no skill at all, and lockpicking isn't all that common of a skill. As for "Amazon's Choice"... I've worked quite a bit with Amazon Marketplace sellers in a marketing role, and I can virtually assure you that it's just some sort of (probably quite simple) algorithm based on average rating, number of reviews, relative price within its class, and Amazon's relationship with the seller. There are probably also some go/no-go gates such as being in the "Ships from Amazon" club. I'm sure Amazon doesn't actually do any professional reviews, though they do put something of a premium on reviews by verified purchasers (people who bought the product on Amazon). So essentially, it's whatever product in its category that large numbers of _ordinary people_ who've bought it think is pretty good at what it does and priced fairly. I consider it a pretty reliable tag for a lot of kinds of products... but security products would surely not be in that category.
it would be pretty shocking if I ever saw a lockpickinglawer video where he concluded the lock was good
Oh crap - I think when my grandma died she had something like this on her storage unit! The key was ginding and we couldn't open it so the building's repairman just cut it off
The Amazon "choice selection" is ONLY based on ONE THING, how much profit they make from selling the product
The only time that is secure is when you are high.
Amazon's Choice because when your shit is stolen you gotta buy more from amazon
When you see amazons choice you just need to think of Elzar from Futurama recommending the pasta. "It's got a reeeeeal nice profit margin".
The selection process for "amazon choice" products is just products that have good reviews and Amazon offers them a deal where amazon gets a portion of the sales in exchange for putting "Amazon's choice" on the listing to attract buyers.
In other news, Amazon will no longer recommend locks to LPL.
👍 👍 👍 👍
The problem is marketing. People believe they need a high security lock to secure their shoe rack. Hence a high security lock is one just good enough to secure a shoe rack.
Me, scrolling through LPL's vids: haha which weak lock will I see destroyed today-- Oh. That... is the lock I have on my storage container 😨
I think with these locks they are focusing more on the aspect that you cant cut the lock with a bolt cutter.
Anyone else have an amazon ad?
Amazon's Choice is most likely based on 2 thigs, 1. How much the product manufacturers pays Amazon; 2. How much people buys it
is there any thing you do recomend
I open those fast then the key with a wave rake. a lot of outdoor storage facilities sells these at the desk.
“This is the lockpickinglawyer” 12 seconds later “This was the lock picking lawyer”
Amazon's astute marketing Step1 buy lock from amazon Step2 whatever you locked is now stolen Step3 although you might not buy another Amazon's choice lock you probably will replace whatever valuable item you brought a lock for via amazon who profit at almost every step
Maybe Amazon chooses bad locks for y'all so that things get stolen and you have to buy more stuff from Amazon. xD
Please tell me that you left a review for this lock on Amazon and referenced your video
how does 'amazon's choice' work? profit margin would be the obvious hint, IMHO.
Curious why you use bottom of the keyway tension on this lock, but top of the keyway tension on every lock in the Aluminum 40 series.
U mean plandemic
Wow 😳 seconds to open the lock 🔐 amazing
I’m trying to pick my first lock a Master lock no40 and do I not need to get all pins to click?
Selling overpriced cheap china shit as secure items with huge profits.. No wonder Jeff Bezos is so rich..
The okay folks was much earlier...NOW THATS HOW U KNOW HOW GOOD A LOCK IS!
One of these days LPL will realise he could use his skills and knowledge to start a high security lock company and absolutely dominate the market. Because time after time the competition bring out new locks. And 60 seconds later... LPL looks down at their open state disapprovingly.
What even determines Amazon's Choice? Highest profitability and nothing else?
Amazon provides an e-commerce front end and fulfillment services, almost everything you buy on amazon is sold by third parties. Doesn't seem like many commenters realize that.
It'd be great to leave this as a 'review' on the amazon page ...
My Pa was a contractor and did a lot of work with lock smiths so I was taught basic picking at 11 or so.. I wish I knew how to expand my skills as a locksport to some of the lovka LPL has worked on.
Locking Picking Lawyer: "Your Lock Sucks" Lock Company: "Yeah? Well My Dislike Bots Say Otherwise!"
Amazon wants people steal your stuff so you have to by new ones from them.
Is it legal to buy lock picking tools?
Why are his videos so satisfying?
While I do agree it's fairly easily pickable, it isn't necessarily easy to pick. These locks are usually 5 inches recessed into a round hole making externally difficult to even get a good position. Not only that but the hole itself is fairly hard
Didn't he post this already
I made a video picking this same lock a while ago and am proud to say I matched lpl’s time. I used the snowman pick tho.
please can i be on same team... you seem to have figured it out..
Im still waiting for the holy grail of LPL videos where he dunks on a company in under a minute.
Recently watched a news video, and they mentioned that "Amazon's choice" is given to products that have been receiving high ratings within a category for a certain amount of time.
No mystery about Amazon Choices - it's just a marketing gimmick. They don't really check products out in detail and make a decision based on value or suitability or quality. And in any case you all should be ashamed of yourself for using that company! It's contributing to the destruction of independent retailers and city centre or community shops across the world.
I wonder how many peoples lives have been ruined by having all their stuff stolen because the wrong person watched your videos and have become master thieves and b and e experts lol.
I wonder which is faster, LPL picking this, or WD40 then rake it?
I checked a notification and the lock was already open 🤯
Highest margin dictates Amazons choice.
Whoah you went bottom of the keyway. That’s rare. Same results however.
So if I want to learn lock picking I guess Amazon's choice is a good place to start lol
I come from Coisa De Nerd
Ten seconds to pick it. It takes longer than that to find the right key. Thanks LPL.
“In this case, Amazon’s choice would not be my choice.” Oh LPL, that begs the question... What is your choice?
In diz case amazon choice wont be my choice lmao hahahahahah
Looks like some crap dropshipped from Ali express
I am a novice picker and bought this exact same lock to practice on a few weeks ago. Having only ever picked a master lock #3, I was able to rake this lock in literally 2 seconds. I was also able to SPP the lock using the flat (back) side of my hook pick. Truly a terrible lock. Can't believe it actually has excellent reviews.
I went to Amazon to buy a lock picking set and amazon's choice" was "The lockpicking lawyer.
It's a Chinese-made lock. It came from China... The virus also came from China... just sayin'
Damn he crushed that lock in the blink of an eye.
Every time I watch one of your videos, I look around me and am forced to come to terms with the reality that I am not secure behind my locks.
Ayo did you hear that? it seems like someone just heard a click on 4 on your house lock 0_0
Click out of 1 Nothing on 2 . . Aand is open
Would you recommend learning basic locksport for emergency prep?
Thanks for the review, now I've decided to weld my doors
Is there a lock you can't pick?
yup, theres a video, its a sticker
Fk me only been up an hour and 1.1K comments loool
They should put a "LPL: Time to pick" rating on each lock
It’s all fun and games until u hear, “click out of 1, click out of 2, 3 is binding” outside your house at 3 am.
Dear LPL: You have a very pleasant and nice voice 😊😌
He went Pulp Fiction on this lock. You can hear it in his tone of voice that every other word was, "This God D&mn Mudderfù*ing lock isn't worth shìte."
Despite everything I've seen on this channel I still believe locks are way more secure than they use to be. Locks have gotten a whole lot better over the years. They use to be terrible for things you actually needed some real security. My grandma's family lost the key for their car at one point and just used a serrated knife instead. It worked everytime. At least you need some skill to steal a car now.
Try he class z lock, basically unobtainable though since it's for government locations
You reckon he even carries house keys? 😂
Your video gave me the Inspiration to study and learn to be a locksmith ^..^ Thank you
P.s. your videos are amazing
Imagine the lock picking lawyer picking a lock from a chicken edit i mean on a chicken
LPL: "Let me show you just how easy it is to open this so-called "High Security" lock" *puts the key in and turns it* LPL: "In any case, that's all I have for you today."
profit, always, everywhere. ps, U.S. Privacy is now a MISNOMER.
*When your new game Skyrim character starts with level 100 lockpicking*
I'd be curious what you would suggest as a good alternative to this. Of course you could get specialty high end locks, but for common folk like us who are just protecting our sheds with valuables in them, would be nice to know what you'd suggest
What is your choice? I find myself wondering what locks you would recommend for the average 'security cautious' person's needs.
I've always wondered how many thief follow and watch this channel 🤣
Apologies if you have already done something like this but it would be really useful if you could make a video just listing a few locks that do meet your approval,
i picked one with a plastic zip tie in about 10 seconds. with a rake, faster than the key. mine had abus discus no24 markings on it
He just straight up craped on there lock
