[1168] Amazon’s Terrible Choice: Puroma KP070 Disc Padlock

  • Dave Wright

    I have found over the years, that companies throw the "high security" label on anything that is difficult to open with bolt cutters.

  • Pandemos

    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.

  • likejeppy

    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 :(

  • NismoMan420

    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.

    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.

    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??

  • Barefoot

    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.

  • Keiya

    Amazon's Choice because when your shit is stolen you gotta buy more from amazon

  • cho4d

    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".

  • General Nickles
    General Nickles

    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.

  • Bert Blankenstein

    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 😨

  • Cameron Heslop

    I think with these locks they are focusing more on the aspect that you cant cut the lock with a bolt cutter.

  • CasualGamer

    Anyone else have an amazon ad?

  • Lua Grimm

    Amazon's Choice is most likely based on 2 thigs, 1. How much the product manufacturers pays Amazon; 2. How much people buys it

    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

    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.

    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.

  • SuperSMT

    What even determines Amazon's Choice? Highest profitability and nothing else?

  • brocktechnology

    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.

  • Justice

    It'd be great to leave this as a 'review' on the amazon page ...

    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

    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.

  • Jon B

    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.

  • CCL13

    I wonder which is faster, LPL picking this, or WD40 then rake it?

    Ten seconds to pick it. It takes longer than that to find the right key. Thanks LPL.

    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.

  • RHaines76

    I went to Amazon to buy a lock picking set and amazon's choice" was "The lockpicking lawyer.

    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."

  • MrThatGuyYouForgot

    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.
