This would need to be shaped radically different for use outside of USA
If you have wire strippers you could just cut off the end and put a new one on
Its a gimmick for manufactures to make money.
Would you kid dare to take a hammer to it?
That thing is pointless. You can just cut the plug off and wire it onto another plug or since most modern devices have detachable wires on them and they pretty much us the same connector you can just steal the plug end off the back of a tv or whatever and use that.
My parents locking my laptop charger
... So is this what the little holes in the prongs are for?
put it on my wifes vibratoer
You can pick it... or you just cut the wire and put it into another plug
I love all the comments saying "this would get your kid into lockpicking!" no, knowing tech enthusiasts, they'd just cut it and reattach a new plug on the end lol.
This is the lock rosting lawyer and today.
i respect this guy because i can tell he doesn’t do this for money, what youtuber that lives on revenue makes 2 minute videos?
you can cut the wires and solder to another plug?
I like how focused you are on the video and videos can can be quite brief and short which is great
It took me longer to type this than opening the lock twice.
Bruh this title sounds like a badlands chugs vid title
cut the wire strip it then twist the lose wire then plug it back into a outlet. Whats the point of these lock lol
lol these locks are really stupid, you could just get a padlock trough a hole in the prong and it does the same job of preventing it from being used
If I was a kid I’d have stripped the cable and attached it to the plug via the cables
Think about it Xboxes and PCs have removable external wires so you can just grab a new cable
I don't think this particular lock is made to prevent anybody from using the device, I mean, it clearly could break open but people using this would be for example, in a house as LPL stated, to prevent a game console from being plugged or in the professional life, as a LOTO device, to prevent any equipment frombeing plugged and people who see it won't even try to force it.
Is... is this why some plugs have those holes?
aaah i always wondered what those two holes at the end where.
I have a sincere question for you. I plan on making a lichtenberg machine which can be very deadly. I was considering using a lock very similar to the one you just picked in this video. Because the machine could be very deadly in the hands of someone not knowing what they're doing I wanted to make sure it was secure, what would you suggest ?
Cut the wire off and when you wanna use it splice it back on lol
Let me pick the toaster rilly quick and ...
Nice Lockout tag out for plug in stuff
It's more of a symbolic representation.
Instructions were a little fuzzy. Tried to pick the socket instead.
Wafer locks are terrible. I had a locking gas cap, I went to unlock it, and the core just pulled out of the gas cap with little effort. A wafer was what held the core in.
You could just strip the wires and and put a new plug on it
I got clicbaited without effort cause my mind immediately thought u would pick the lock with the plug
On most appliances, you can unplug the power cord from the device and use a different power cable.
a one minute video that just explains what a plug lock is, then says "open wafer lock with wafer lock opener"
Just take your kids gaming console is you don't want them playing it. Or take the power cable with you to work. A lock out tag out option seems like an unnecessary use of money for that purpose if that's what your sole use for it is...I mean, most people have light flat screen nowadays so you could even just carry the tv somewhere. Also, simply confiscating the console really makes a much better point
How to truly ground the kids, just lock al the chargers in the house don't take the phone mess up the chargers.
My mom used to throw one of these bad boys on the TV power cord. I'd just rip it off
US plugs look so flimsy
When I was a kid, my mom had locks on our rotary dial phones, to keep my brother off it. LOL
I saw one of those on a TV set at my local YMCA.

If its a gaming console, and you stockpile spare cords, whats to stop you even with a lock...
Even if a kid opens it, they’re still probably going to get caught by their parents and get grounded for longer.
All I can think of is “Plug lock, ion even understand how this lock work”
Mom:- Son, what is this thing you ordered online with my card? Son:- It's fake keys.
Thanks to LPL I don't need a key-ring with twenty keys on it anymore when one jiggler will do.
I'd just cut the cable and solder on a new plug 🤔 ... Well if it was a real lock
I have a Dora the explorer plug and play console, HA check mate buddy. I win.
mom: "Hey billy, did you do your homework???" billy: "yes I did" mom: "then why is the xbox turned on and the lock I used to secure the power cord lying there smashed to pieces?!?!" Seriously though, don't most entertainment devices have detachable power cords?.. couldn't you just buy a cheap spare power cord as a kid and use that whenever your parents 'lock up' the original power cord?
@Ice Neko I just checked and I can order all types of power cords online for less than 5 bucks. I do not consider 5 bucks expensive. I guess for a kid however it might be a big deal..
... cords arent cheap anymore
Imagine a thief trying to pick his way into LPL house for a solid 30 minutes now and he starts to hear "...nothing on 2, click out of 3, 4 is binding..." on the other side
Challenge: put locks on everything in the house. Everything. And only pick them open.
Or you can cut the plug and wire it to another plug... Although honestly If my parents were to put this in my computer (or console if I had one) I would use a different cord (finally some good use for those old cords!)
In most cases you can just replace the cord. So this really doesn't do anything. Also - does it short both plugs together? If so, that could be cause for concern. If it doesn't, then it also exposes enough to get a connection on the ends... or, you can always use a splice connector.
This guy showed me how to pick my dads gun safe now I'm now your friendly neighbor hood school shooter (joke)
At first I tought he was gooing to open a lock with an AC cord prong 😂
I said no more tv
cutting the plug off and putting a different one on works too
and probably, cutting the wire and installing another plug is just as easy
Go ahead and put this on my ps4 or xbox one and I can easily just use one of my many many other power cables I own lol
You know when it comes to wafer cores, why dont the companies just say screw it and key them all alike. Thats about as secure as they are now, plus i can only imagine how much easier and cheaper they could get to produce
What kind of baby has a jiggler
Hopefully my mom doesn’t buy this
Why would you buy this just take away the wire if you can which most of the time you can
Parents put this on my computer plug, still had my phone though, 6 minutes on the internet and 15 minutes of practice and the lock was open
DUDE DONT GIVE MY PARENTS IDEAS ABOUT LOCKING MY DAMN GAYSTATION
wait arn’t most plugs removable??? or just snip the plug off and rewire it to another plug lmao
I did it with screw driver 5 years ago.
If it's used for locking gaming consoles, I have a bridge to sell you. Their cords are detachable, so they could just switch them out and when they're done playing, put the original back in.
Yea plug walk I dont even know how the fuck my plug talk
As a lock out device for faulty machinery it's better than a tag and a zip tie. Usually it is turned off at the board too.
Hey guys lockpickinglawyer and my mom locked up my Xbox but this lock is very easy to get open so...
Finally, after 20 years, it's my turn on the xbox
man if I've discovered this video when I was 10 and grounded for eating too much cheese
What a stupid lock concept, why not lookout the outlets you plug into. who even invented this.
When i was younger 11-12 y/o my parents were always locking my PS3 with that lock. And by the time i realised that i could ''lockpick'' that. I just start pushing key of my bycycle lock into it and that was how i played it for yrs and yrs...
I mean, it probably works on 99% of kids or applicable situations. And if they break it open, it's obviously a dead giveaway the device was used. AKA stop doing locks that are meant to be cheap and simple or LOTOs
cut the fucking wire and put a new plug in. Jokes on you dad,
Imagine going through processing only to be this trash of a lock
that lock is racist - wouldn't work on european plugs
Waiting for one of these to be "Ok, this is a simple wafer lock, let's see how quick we can open this..." *BAM* it splits into a bunch of pieces. "As you can see, the core was not this lock's only glaring weakness"
A good starter kit for picklockers
Corona had him on LOCKdown
gonna be honest i thought this was just a death cable that you have to pick while being electrocuted... maybe a welcome challenge for the LPL?
Now attach prongs to the other end of the wire and plug it in
Those locks are meant for kids.... What kid can pick that
“Quietly splices wires in background”
Only Americans would make a lock for a plug. Just put the device up.
I genuinely thought it was a lock that only could be opened by electrical power, like the only way to open it was to plug it into an outlet
I mean great lock if your keeping out a kid under the age of 15
is there any lock he dose not know how to pick? recommend any good ones that wont be picked in 2 seconds?
WOW that lock is absolutely GARBAGE
Is this the reason American plugs have holes?
Whereas I'd just cut the cable and stick the wires into the wall outlet
İs it have for eu type?
In the theoretical “kid wants to play his/her (insert gaming console here) scenario”, there are different ways you could get past this lock. Me being the more electrically inclined individual, I probably would have just wired in another power cord to the device that needed power.
Imagine pick your way into someone’s house, and you see about 1000 locks on the door.
If it was stronger lock you could still the cut plug off another cord and splice it onto the cord that had the lock on it... or you could make something to poke into the cable and bypass it without anyone noticing.
