The number one reason Aussies made this lock, was to keep people out of there beer fridge
This is the lockpicking viewer and today I have for you, a comment left below.
I think the thing to remember with home security locks is, the majority of burglars don't have advanced lockpicking skills but also have no need for non-destructive entry into your home. LPL is an highly skilled lockpicker with specialised tools and expertise, who has no time pressure and the ability to sit down and study the locks he picks on camera. These are not things that would apply to the average person breaking in to your house. If anything the main things the locks of your home need to be resistant against are the typical low-skill attacks, particularly bumping and raking. The other important factor to look for would be drill resistance, as drilling is another fast way of bypassing a locked door quickly that doesn't typically require particularly specialised knowledge. Essentially my point is that in general terms for the average person I wouldn't be too concerned with the idea of having a totally unpickable lock on your front door- once you're above the skill level of the typical felon it would be more the ability of the lock and the door it's in to resist destructive entry that will be the main test of your home's security.
He's like a dentist
Shouldn't bi-lock mean it goes both ways to unlock it?
In the top 10?!!! whoa...impressive....
I'm not handy, I am not a criminal, I don't own a padlock, I have no interest in picking locks, and yet here I am, and I can't stop watching these... I don't understand... Is this witchcraft?
Being an Australian, I'm impressed that you think this lock is on your top ten list. 😀
You know it is a Good lock when the video lasts 7 minutes
I'm starting to root for the locks. It's not going to go well, I fear.
This guy doesnt need a key because he is the key
My school uses these for everything and its really annoying because they literally lock the toilets so you have to get a teacher to open it.
Never realised they where unique to Australia when i worked for one of the state health services that was the keys they used just thought it was a funky type of lock/key
Every school here has these keys
Aussie locks are no joke.
He must be conferred to lock picking master
What camera are you using? It focus fast.
Well, my girlfriends unit appartmen uses these for the main door. And its $50 to get oe new set of key.... glad to know its worth the money
doesn't everyone else feel like their at a dentist when he says the number part
Wanderful Which is the best lock to use for homes
Do you think it would be useful to introduce some kind of 'random', intentionally manufactured difference between the pin locations on the two sides? I suppose they are all cnc machined now, it shouldn't be too hard to randomise the locations of the pins in a way that wouldn't compromise the original keys function, but made it harder to pick. Just a though because you said that one side generally sets before the other, so surely it would increase the picking time if you had to switch sides more. I would think that multiple lock companies have already approached you to help improve their designs though? There is obviously some crazy low hanging fruit in a bunch of designs/implementations. Is there a chance that we will see an lpl designed lock? sorry if that's already asked alot.
What is your current top ten?
Love your videos! You said as you clamped the lock in the vise "as it would be found in the wild". It got me wondering how you would pick it if it was in a door and you couldn't reach around so comfortably. I realize that you do it this way in order to provide an unobstructed view for us but does it make a difference? Keep the videos coming!!
"You don't need a criminal lawyer...you need a criminal lawyer .." LOL Fascinating!
I wonder if picking a lock is different when it's imbedded in a door, requiring very different hand placement. In all your videos, you put the lock in a clamp and have your levering hand grasped around the barrel of the lock, which wouldn't be accessible if it was in a door. No doubt all the same principles apply, but I would have thought accustoming yourself to being able to reach around the back of the lock while unpicking it would leave you at a disadvantage if you had to pick one in the wild. I'm sure your hand placement in the video also helps provide a better shot of what's going on for viewers. I'm sure I'm not the first person to ask...
how do you encounter locks in the wild? :D
Could you please show how each one of the more weird types of locks actually lock.
Markiplayer is getting in my ads now
Thank you LockPickingLawyer, for teaching me how to rob people easier
F, that lock is used in military bases across the country.
These locks are used to secure ATM’s and money down here as well, they have a sort of “levelling” system regarding the keys. All keys will fit into all of these locks, but will only work if it was designed specifically for the serial code of the lock and “master” keys are designed for a specific range of serial numbers regarding the locks. Also fun fact: lock smiths can’t and won’t cut these keys, they have to be ordered directly from the company or their licensed private/commercial locksmiths
I really DO NOT THINK PICKING LOCKS IS A WORRY TO ANYONE, NOT PEOPLE , NOT MANUFACTURERS..... DON'T BE FOOLED... THEY SERVE A LIMITED PURPOSE AND HAVE A LIMITED ASKING PRICE , ON AVERAGE NOTHING OVER $100 FOR SURE, REALLY NOTHING OVER 50.... ANY EFFORT TO MAKE THEM STRONG NOW REVOLVES AROUND MAKING THEM RESISTANT TO GRINDERS AND CUTTERS AND DISASSEMBLY TO PROTECT AGAINST OPPORTUNISTIC CRIMES AND PETTY THEFT....A PICK PROOF LOCK SHOULDN'T BE THAT HARD TO MAKE,, FOR EXAMPLE THEY COULD BE DESIGNED THAT THE PINS COULDN'T BE SET WITH A PICK AND REQUIRED THE PHYSICAL PRESENCE OF THE KEY, OR BY HAVING SIMPLE ALARMS GO OFF IF A LOCK IS ENTERED FOR LONGER THAN 2 MINUTES , OR BY THE WAYS IN USE NOW WHICH ARE NOT SHOWN HERE, THE POINT IS EXPENSE,,, THINK ABOUT IT , WOULD YOU WANT TO PAY 200 - 500 DOLLARS FOR A LOCK AND HAVE IT COST MORE THAN WHAT YOUR PROTECTING??THE LPL WILL NOT EVEN DO IT AS ON HIS NEW HOUSE AS HE LEFT THE OLD CHEAP LOCKS VERSUS REPLACING THEM WITH $200.00 LOCKS.
If the LPL bothers to take a lock apart, it’s got to be a decent lock.
Always trust stuff made by a criminal penal colony. Because we are not allowed guns we need amazing locks to keep the possums out.
Possums are endangered in South Aussie because of all the drop bears here. Luckily they've set up protected breeding areas for them on Kangaroo Island and at Warrawong. Its really sad when predators overwhelm prey species. Luckily human attacks & fatalities have dropped off thanks to COVID quarantine.
@Tony White I can't believe I'm replying to Tony Abbott himself.
In Australia we are allowed to own guns , there are just more stringent rules on licensing and storage !
Great pick well done. Aussies are good hey?
I din't know these were Aussie-specific, whe i worked a the Depot we had these locks so had the U Key... when I'm out and about and need something sharp for say, opening a package, these work a treat they got the flat side of the U to prevent them from bending :P We used to have the ASSA Abloy keys before the switch to these BiLocks. Edit: Just wanna Clarify I'm newto your channel and I only know it as ASSA Abloy coz that was what was on the Key... when I searched for it wasn't sure if it's the Desmo.
I did know it's Australian, but we're kinda neighbour so yeah, my house use this key too
The fact that you spend more than 3 seconds on Gate 4 on RHS, and had to run left side multiple times just shows that 99.9999% of people here will have no chance trying to pick it
These are the locks we used on our cabinets at my old job
Snap a key in the lock and it's.. Break out the Gelignte time...
I wonder if there was any spike in sales after this video.
Yeah the lock picking lawer at least has a nice thing or 2 to say about my country Australia,n not much about any other.lol lol go Australia go ,on ya lock picking lawer,ya m8te from Australia
Now imagine this locking mechanism on the massive squire lock.
Please save me. I have absolutely no interest in locks or lock picking and yet I'm stuck watching these videos for hours😐
Something to consider. you put the lock in the vice cause that's how you find it in the wild, but then you reach around and and hold.the tensioner from the back which you can't do in the wild. Not saying you wouldn't have succeeded, it was just something I noticed and may have taken you an extra 3 seconds. Great videos by the way.
A wild lock appeared! Lpl used top of the key way tension! It’s super effective!
the door to my flat has one of these. Indeed tricky to open with the key too
So with a metal door flush on all sides, and a reinforced door jamb, if this lock somehow included warding, would you say that's a secure door? Lol
1:04 and I high or did he just say "aw you find them in the wild" like hes talking about locks being some kind of wild animal or something?!?
oh shit, never time stapped before, i missed it... here is what i meant 0:57
I bought one and it came with a free kangaroo.
of course you can pick 99% of the lock in the world . they are just using the same principal , pins and tumbler with your experience it should be piece of cake
I remember seeing these on classrooms and stuff in my highschool...
1:15 you know it was a decent lock for LPL when it takes more then 30 sec let alone a min lol LPL needs to show the jury the best locks for any situation or he could make a video with a lock smith to create a tough core
Now I know why all schools have these locks they are annoying to pick
He sounds like my dentist when he picks the locks
I like how the manufacturer has posted on their website that they have "yet to personally witness any original bilock cylinder being picked open without a key". I guess we should send LPL another one, without a key, and then send that video to them?
At 2:05 I expecting him to start screaming SEVEN! SEVEN! SEVEN!
“as seen in the wild” 😜
I love advancements in the shape of the key, humans are so clever.
I remember seeing a key just like that on my mothers key ring 20 odd years ago. She used to work at CSIRO as a lab technician.
There is a version of this key and lock produced for Australian government clients that is more complicated than the one you’ve picked here.
This is the first time I’ve seen a supposedly high level lock picked in three minutes.
I imagine this core as inline 12 engine
Imagine taking a shit at a public bathroom and you hear: "Nice click on two, little click on six"
now that hes said this would be one of his top 10 house locks, i really wanna see a top 10 house locks video. his top 10 most trickey keyways was really interesting and would love to see this too!
Well now I need a top ten “LPL would use this lock to protect his house” video
Hey lawyer im going to need your help i lost my key to the national bank of america, and also do you lawyer foreal foreal or is it just a joke? hmu
I have seen a few times a magnetic key lock that covers the key way on a door lock. This was installed due to someone that put super glue on the main door lock.
If you wanted to flex your lockpicking skills you would pick this lock and leave it disassembled
The better the lock on your door, just means the thief is more likely to bust a window
What ever happened to the unpickable Australian lock in video 442
well, we tried our best to keep him out, someone elses turn.
Putting your hand behind the lock is not how you would hold this out in the wild.
so aussie locks turn counter clockwise?
I never noticed that fact that my workplace lock opened counter until just now (not an aussie but across the ditch)
”As you would find it 'in the wild'"
Is the cylinder removal mechanism difficult to pick?
Need to hire a lawyer for my locks
LPD, in the wild you can't put your left hand behind the lock. The door is in the way
Now that's what i call autofocus,..... :) *Looking at you, GH5 on my desk*
I will NOT have a nice day mister ! :P
Shouldve just put a spider and a couple snakes in there and call it a day
He sounds like a dentist 😂😂
I fucking knew that 4 would be in a false gate... it always is...
Hey cool, we had these in HIgh School (in Australia) didn't know they were Australian made. I can see why the quick change key would come in handle. Replacing the locks on the >100 doors in the whole school would be tedious otherwise. Although they were starting to replace them with electronic locks. As it's easier to update then traditional keys.
anything that takes him longer than 2 seconds and a twig is already god tier
As we would find it in the wild lolololololololol He is the best period. Thanks for great videos.
What is this lock for?
I have one of these keys and its always fascinated me. Glad to know the lock that its used for is super unlikely to get picked 😂😂
I was starting to wonder if there were ANY locks that were secure enough to give me peace of mind
To be fair - you should have tried to pick it upside down - since its from down-under 😎
LPL the best way to keep u out is open the door so wide u can. No lock, no LPL
Now here we have a wild lock from Australia
Btw, great to see you doing an Aussie product and have it rated this well! Legend.
As a sec officer, I happily had these on my home locks, but at a certain educational facility I worked at, these were a bloody nightmare as they (could have been gen 1 tho) had a bad habit of weakening after lots of uses due to the double keyway, (lockups, opens every day by guards, and area checks. Luckily we didn't have too many of them, and most locks were abloy star shapes..which were like cheese after a few months usage. We were forever calling maintenance to replace the damn things. Which did.not.mske.them.happy. And as a control op, guards didn't give a rats on treating them well. Great video, I'd always thought these would be hard to pick!
It would be great if you can enhance the sound from the lock by a lot. Would like to better understand what you are perceiving.
I have a question on all locks not just this one. If the sliders or pins where more narrow towards the tip than the channel they rest in, would this make the lock unpickable? Im picturing the pins not locking into place under pressure if they have some play. I appreciate your content thank you!!!
What does it mean what he say "3 is binding..."?
