LPL: "Let's give it a little tap with the mallet" Proceeds to hit the lock hard. Ah yes little tap
Will you be able to reassemble that lock?
Really impressive video would be him putting the lock back together in working order.
More complicated than a home lock
Picking the lock sounds like the dentist. You don’t know what they mean, you just take their word for it.
"We'll set aside a small magnet from the collection of magnets I keep." , then proceeds to pull out a collection of tiny magnets... that made my day
1:27 this really reminds me of going to the dentist .
He's like a dentist for padlocks. Lol
Anyone else feel like him talking to himself while picking the lock sounds like the random crap the dentists say while checking your teeth?
“Iittle tap with the mallet” *HULK SMASH*
I have this lock on my storage container and now feeling a whole lot happier. Confident there not many people out there with this level of skill breaking into storage units.
Would a Tunston drill bit (something harder than steel) drill through that? Just wondering.
"this is a lock that I would consider using" This is the ultimate endorsement that company should be proud lol
"Requires 3 tools and almost 2 minutes for LPL to pick" is a stunning marketing slogan for this lock.
Translation at the end: sure, I picked it fairly quickly, but I'm the man with picking locks and only a handful of people can pick this, so definitely consider this lock because it's pretty good.
I've watched many vids from this channel and I've figured something out. This guy is legitimately one of the best lock pickers on the planet. Like maybe THE best?
Tiny magnets give me immense joy
I wonder if ERA makes just lock cores cause i would want to put those as a deterrent on important containers in my house
The way this guy picks these locks is amazing BUT having 2 motorcycles stolen with very good padlocks cut off like cheese with a grinder picking seems a pick pointless??????
If it’s good enough for you then it’s good enough for all of us. Thanks
Whoa 8 mins
8 minutes.. i thought he had a hard times picking the lock. i've been mistaken
He did take a long time. It took him about 1 full minute, which is longer than most other locks on here.
That's an interesting lock using magnet mechanism
Starts picking 1:29 3:00 opened
Would it make a difference if the magnet pin were deeper inside, say in slot 5?
"We'll set aside a small magnet from the collection of magnets I keep." Proceeds to pull out what looks like Cthulhu. That collection of magnets is one of the creepiest, most chaotic things I've ever seen. I love it! :)
Why'd you copy someone elses comment? Are you a child?
what bit driver is that? it's beautiful
3.33 enter the autopsy table for the gathering of the body parts!
"This is a lock i would consider using" He would only consider this. What locks does he use for his valuable items???
High praise indeed: ".. I would *consider* using.."
" I don't even know what it's for " a locksmith somewhere just died a little inside. That was his top secret, baby project to fool LPL.
I have this!!
How much business do you think ERA is going to get off of this video? I can't even think of a purpose for one in my life and I went and looked it up.
You should've put this lock on your wall.
What is the lock that the Lockpicking Lawyer use
can you show how to bypass with the lock on a door ?
You can be a very good dentist
Thieves guild in Skyrim
I bet these lock companies hate you. Incredible.
ima jus use wiring now picks cant hold this dude back
I want to see how many random locks you can pick without professional tools. Lets assume for a moment you've been kidnapped and gotta get out of a cage, but all you have is a fork and a paper clip.
I think this used to be a good lock, but now it's fucked because every respectable thief in UK knows how to pick it open in 60 seconds all thanks to LPL.
Me explaining myself after getting caught picking my nose
He gets the locks, deconstructs them first, figures out their weaknesses. Then puts them back together and picks them. It’s simple science
I want to see you pick a lock that is actually on a locker or in a real life situation .. dark.. cold.. hard to access.
We now know the time for an S-tier lock to pick would be around 1 minute and 45 seconds for LPL. :)
Can you put it back together?
Another great one
i need you on a downtown job.
is there any lock that u have get ? or one thats the hardest to pick ?
Can you do vaults? (wiiiiiinky face) ;)
I want to see you put one of those locks back together lol.
Can we get a list of LPL "approved" locks? You could make a chart/list for size, type, price etc.
LPL: "This is a lock I'd consider using." That's an endorsement of epic proportions!
clever boy ;-)
Dont know what to do with this information. Thanks anyway
When you put it like that, I'm definitely buying that.
"It's just a little shy of what I'd consider truly elite lock." And "It's a lock I might consider using myself". That's some seriously high praise from LPL. I don't understand why the locksmith who watched this had doubts. LPL spends much of his free time picking and exploiting locks, he has a fearsome reputation from others in the know and now has a first place competitive win in his first ever competition. (Though I pity the fools who turned up that day to compete!) This one is actually harder to open than the one he later sent that was supposed to be a challenge! People have to accept that when you truly find your niche you can work miracles and make it look like magic. Just as a stage magician does, and just the same it's skill, experience, talent and perhaps an exceptional sense of touch. Like Jeff Sitar proved to have when they tried to define it on Superhumans. I have no doubt LPL would have a similar sense of touch, that's well beyond what most of us could feel.
I really liked being able to see inside the lock in such detail. I’m interested in seeing another video where you do this again (with a different kind of lock), or reassemble a lock.
As this is the type of lock used in the lock box of a shipping container I'd like to see it picked when there is only enough length between the lock and the lock box for the key so long pick tools can't be used and its difficult to see what's going on
The last statement was what I was thinking. The LPL has a high level of expertise, knowledge and experience with respect to the many different types of locking devices that most people will never achieve without a strong interest and plenty of study and practice time. I'm totally new to this fascinating subject matter, but right away found it intriguing enough to buy a couple books and a couple training tools. After I feel my skill level is worthy of it, I'll be adding the really nice compact pick set to my tool collection.
LPL needs to offer that specialized disassembly tray for purchase on his webstore.
If the LPL says this is a lock he would consider using, it's time to find out if they will sell them in the US...... at least one anyway, lol.
My fallout new vegas character after i max lockpick skill:
Wait, so taking the lock apart needs the allen screw exposed? if so, why not drill through the shackle in that spot to directly access the screw and breach the lock there? seems very vulnerable.
Drills and other power tools are very loud, and would cause unwanted attention.
LPL.......what if they cut the sides of the pins and implemented a system where if u PUT TENSION on the core....then pins are inable to move AT ALL. ALL ur attacks are baised on the same flaw....u need tention to keep the pins firm....but if they did it where they locked in place if tension in applied without the key in place. i think they do this so that no lock is UNPICKABLE so lawenforcment cant be shut out.
My understanding is that this is exactly what spool and serrated pins are designed to do. When you hear LPL or BosnianBill (or any other skilled lockpicker) talking about a false set, they're dealing with a pin that it partway in place but was designed with a feature that catches the edge of the keyway and can't move while there's pressure on it. You have to keep in mind that if the pins are immobile, you can't get the key into the lock, so successfully designing one where any tension at all locked the pins in place perfectly would result in a lock that is extremely hard to even get the correct key into. That isn't even getting into the subject of how expensive it would be, because the manufacturing tolerances required to make that work would only be possible with extremely high quality tools and a very skilled locksmith. Essentially, what you're focusing on here isn't a deliberate design flaw, it's just a consequence of how locks have to be put together in order to function. Also, even if there was somehow a regulation worldwide that locks have to be pickable for the cops (and there isn't), there's only a tiny number of them with any skill at it. In the event of a forced entry they just break down the door, because it's much faster and generally also safer.
Me: Didnt know small magnets existed LPL: "My collection of small magnets"
Oh yeah. A lot of modellers and Miniature Wargamers use them to make their models interchangable, especially when you want to change what weapons or gear a model has. I am... learning this art.
How do those telescoping pins work?
Could you post a link to the screwdriver set you're using please.
thank you, always very informative ..and to hear you would use this lock, is high praise.
LPL: This is a lock I would consider using. ERA: STONKS
Wait, an 8 minute LPL video?? Finally, a solid contender. Update: never mind he picked it in like 3 minutes & the rest of the time he was being nice showing us how it works
LPL please let me know when you design an unpickable lock...until then I guess it's a Bowley for me
You should rename channel to lock picking GOD
I don't think I will be able to trust any lock ever.
these videos are kinda like asmr, with the calm talking and the lock picking noises except when he gets loud...
With a padlock that good; just cut through the door parts...
Does the strength of the magnet you used to pick it matter? Would a strong magnet work for setting regular pins during picking? Is the spring on the magnetic pin weaker (responds more to force) to allow for a magnet to set it?
Ok, so line up a row of progressively harder to pick locks, add a few you haven't mastered and a few you haven't opened. Give us a LONG video. Heck, just take a ton of super cuts and string them together in the same fashion. Cheers, good luck on the kit!
142 locksmiths who couldn’t pick that lock.
What is a truly elite lock for the LPL?
Out of curiosity, I searched for this lock on Amazon, and on Amazon.uk the only review is for 5 stars and says "I haven't bought this but the lock picking lawyer has and he rates it highly"
Lockpicking Lawyer: 5 stars. This is a lock that I would consider using.
I just got caught picking locks! I need a lawyer! WAIT?!?
E R A??
They sell and ship this lock to America www.randrsecurity.com/index.php?route=product/search&search=Era%20padlock&description=true
Welp, I guess it's time to go buy some stonks.
Since I watch LPL I made a playlist called "usable locks" if I ever want to buy a good lock... so far this is only the second video that made onto this list
@Sniper Venom video number 958
What's the first ?
If this lock gets the seal of approval I'm using it
ERA Owner: Why are our stocks booming all of a sudden? Internet: some guy on yt picked our lock under 2 min ERA owner in a JJJ fashion: you serious? Lmao
How would you pick this open if you don't know what the key looks like?
Wow you are stupid to even showing how to pick locks idiot!
Nothing on two, three ... sounds like my dentist.
A Master in his craft...
I put my key in my door and hear, "nothing on 1, 2 is binding..."
How can 130 people not like this video?
Do you have any list on diff types of locks you recommend videos?
What happens if the company were to put the magnet at the back? Or, made all or a portion of the cylinder from a ferrous alloy? Losing the magnet at the back somewhere seems like it would be a huuuuge time waster. This lock is insane!
Hands like those, you would have made a Brilliant surgeon.
