For those of you who missed out on the last round of Lishi tools and Covert Companions over on www.covertinstruments.com, I thought you might like to know that we’re now accepting a limited number of preorders on the next batches, which are currently in production. Order now and you can avoid the rush when they arrive. 👍
when are you going to open, "stuff made here"'s 'unpickable' lock? (the quotes are because I am not sure if it is or not lol)
when will you do the video on the lock sent by stuff made here?
"Let me open this lock without a pick" Uses an implement likely to be classed as a pick by Japan's LEOs
Would be great, when you actually mark your messages as #ad and/ or #sponsored when you mention covert instruments.com in your descriptions or within your vids, as you have clearly an financial interest by doing so.
You should go on Demolition Ranch and see who can break a lock faster. No joke, I think that would be really cool
this is the place i least expected to see demon slayer characters
Has "Kitkat sparkling wine" LPL: "Oooh, a lock :D "
Remember guys, even if you want to rob someone's house, do it legally. Don't use lockpicks if it is illegal to your country.
wow.. this lock looks pretty awesome.
WHAT IN THE FUUUUU!!!?? YOU SIR ARE A GENIUS!!
"Sparkling Wine Kit Kat" bars? The Japanese certainly have unique snacks, don't they?
Hmm, Demon Slayer snacks
Whenever I hear xpat in an Asian country I cant help but think they are fetishists
@JCT how expensive? My neighbor has a Model X
Hot take. Now do black people in expensive cars.
If anyone is curious.... The "This is the Lock Picking Lawyer' is a Fsus 2/G scale on the piano. Played - F F F C G D. You're welcome. 🙂
I bet I can send this guy a brick with a lock sticker on it and he could still pick it
Very weird how they thought to shield the locking pall from shimming, but failed to shield it from a knife attack. I wonder if it can be rapped open too, since there's only one locking pall.
this put up more than a fight than any master lock ive seen
I wonder if Iwata and co had any relation to the great Iwata San of Nintendo
When lockpicking is illegal in Japan so you mail your lock to LPL so he can pick it from the US
“Japanese railroad padlock picked and bypassed” Every Japanese railway company would like to: - know your location
Is it just me or is that metal collar on the shackle a really good idea that should be on more cheap padlocks?
I want that Sparkling Wine KitKat!
I work for a locksmith company and I have to say I respect this man's talent, but one must also wonder how many times he has assisted any criminal, with ILaward access, to successfully break into someone's house, business, safe or transportation . ILaward fame outweighs the safety of the general public I guess.
Ah yes, the duality of literally everything in the world. Water sure is a tasty, life sustaining treat - shame about all that drowning that goes on.
Wait holy shit ur a lawyer?!? I mean, i guess its literally there in the name but.... I really thought you were some sort of locksmith or covert entry specialist
I can second the "good with beer" notes
Top left corner, anyone notice ?
I keep forgetting Stitch had an anime…
Illegal to pick Bad guy: Aw man I wanted to break in just to take the money and leave without making any damage like a jerk but NOW I have to break this guys lock too. I'm going to feel bad.
i always though it was stupid to ban lock picks because a criminal dose not care anyway and will find a way to obtain them or they will just use bolt cutters
I know you're a lawyer and all, but aren't you concerned about all the trademarked labels and characters on screen?
0:00 Stitch! Lower right corner! :D
That bulged bit on the shackle is something that would be good on a lot of locks that suffer from being shimable.
We want to see you eat the snacks tho
I suspect that in Japan that putting anything into the keyway besides the key would constitute "picking" and with a 99% conviction rate there...... off you go.
I'm surprised lock picking is illegal in Japan. Considering their draconian laws and robust bureaucratic infrastructure, I'm surprised they don't just require a locksmith's license with the applicable regular background check for it. That is what is required to own a hunting rifle in Japan, last I checked. (Handgun laws are even stricter, requiring valid job requirement.)
Pretty sure our friend Jamie got impressed watching Dagashi Kashi there in Japan. I mean, look at the snacks.
what a nice gift. a lock forbidden to be opened without a key. and rare strange snacks! now this is how you give someone a perfect gift
That lock still lasted longer than most master locks lol
Video 3 of hoping you'll try and crack the stuff lock by stuff made here
I'm sorry, you are telling me that the tens of thousands of hours of free time and garage full of tools and locks is a hobby and that you are a lawyer?
That flaring around the lug to prevent shim attacks ought to be standard on all locks, good grief.
Stealing in Japan, what... 🤔
„I am a lawyer, who is respectful of laws“ **proceeds to illegally open a lock**
Saw 2 minutes video. My mind: _Poor lock._
It's a beautiful lock.
Well the more we know right... 1:19
So, the lock security is by obscurity in Japan. I really did not expected that from Japan...
...wait, he's a real lawyer? I thought it was a joke title.
so what you're saying is, its illegal to have your covert companion in japan.
*LPL you are a scary man, in all the GOOD ways!*
If lock picking is illegal in Japan, even for educational purposes, it means you won't be able to know which lock is the best, and if companies are not challenged how can they improve their products?
@Jumbo Mills I've seen them, basically you're not allowed to learn by yourself, do it as a hobby, or even have a ILaward channel as the simple act of owning any lock picking tools will get you jail time or a heavy fine. Guess we're not gonna see a Japanese LPL anytime soon.
There are lockpicking schools in Japan. There is a lengthy comment here somewhere where someone goes into details about the law.
Oh, I wondered why they make such a big deal in Japanese series when someone picks a lock, well everyday you learn something new etc etc.
Yeah, lockpicking is ilegal, remember reading a manga about underground lockpicker that used to work with Yakuza, they censored the process like it was a pornographic manga
"because I'm a good lawyer, I'll also show you how to open it without picking" sounds so much like "okay, this is how it's going to go. I'm going to roast the daylights out of this lock, and then I'm going to have the lock roast the hell out of the company. Thank you for watching have a nice day
OPEN STUFFMADEHERE LOCK ALRDY STOP WASTING TIME WITH OTHER LOCKS
It has been years since I was in Japan but I can 100% guarantee those crunchy things are, in fact, good with beer.
Green tea kitkats are the bomb. I’m not sure about sparkling wine kitkats, though. Isn’t that just chocolate covered pop rocks?
From what I've heard, theft and burglary in Japan isn't nearly as common as the rest of the world.
those kitkats are sooo good
I doubt law enforcement would differentiate between picking the lock and bypassing it through the keyway.
How was the sparkling wine kit-kat ?
^_^ beautiful aesthetics
Did not expect a LPL vid from the thumbnail lol.
I both love the old lock and candy fun!
hey man, love your stuff. Do you have a page or section here with recomondations for locks.. My son has a 700 dollar bike that he wants to ride to and from school... I need a lock that I can trust!!
Lock picks are illegal to use in Japan because they know how easy it is to open their locks.🤣
"Lockpicks are illegal? No problem, here's how you open it without a lockpick."
"So because I am a lawyer and respectful of laws.... I'm going to open this without a lockpick"
lmao in the end where he just shows a metal thing inside and it just magically opens
I'm waiting for someone to send him some snacks covered in just a lot of tape, that would probably take him more than a lock
Masterlock should exclusively sell in Japan seeing as people aren't allowed to legally pick them. They're locks would be seen as awesome over there!
the lock made from stuff made here has been sent
Just for a bit more information on the legality of lock picks in Japan, they were made illegal in 2003 by the "Act on Prohibition of Possession of Special Picking Tools, and Other Related Matters"(特殊開錠用具の所持の禁止等に関する法律) which forbids owning any tool used to bypass locks unless there is a legitimate business need. Violation of this can lead to 1 year in prison or a 500,000 yen (~$5000 USD) fine. Legitimate business need is a bit vague, but it is typically interpreted as you can only have them if you are a locksmith. Since a hobby is not a legitimate business need, the lock picking hobby is effectively banned. It's worth noting that the law does not specify just lock picks, but rather any tool that can be used to bypass locks. So the tool that the LPL used to bypass this lock also potentially be illegal as well. This vagueness has been used to arrest people not just for carrying lock picks but also for carrying ordinary hand tools as well, such as screwdrivers, hammers or crowbars. This is honestly pretty typical of Japanese laws, which are incredibly vague to the point of being problematic.
“This is the LockPickingLawyer and today I thought I’d use my other skill set and provide some free legal advice: lockpicks are illegal in Japan. So, unless you want to see the inside of a Japanese prison cell, leave the lockpicks at home. Also, for any Japanese viewers in Japan, don’t check out any of my websites.”
Or if you use hangouts please can you add me? That goes for anyone that classes themselves as a pro at lock picking. I need some help
I was just waiting for you to say the episode was sponsored by Bokksu. XD
do you have a video explaining what you mean by "click out of one" etc means? Sometimes it you'll get different results for the same pin the second time you go around, and I've never understood exactly what you're doing
Where does he get his little wallet size kit of shims and stuff?
Lock picks are illegal in Australia too.
You should do a clip were you go through movies with safes or lock picking features and rate them on a scale of true or impossible
Is it rappable?
But were they good with beer?
when are you doing the lock by “stuff made here”?
You can't open the "Stuff made here" locks can you? There's no other explanation that u're delaying it so much
Japan's govenment really doesn't want people to have fun
Unfortunately, possessing a lock bypassing tool is also illegal in Japan... You CAN be arrested just by having a flat head screwdriver in your hand outside without proper reason...
Sparkling wine and strawberry flavored KitKat's? Definitely what would be considered a regional flavor.
He should one day start a video saying his common opener "this is the LockPickingLawer..." and open the lock before he can finish the sentance and end the video with his "this is all i have for you today...."
Lock Slayer! Nice ;)
I'm so stupid it's in his name But I never knew he was a lawyer I thought it was just a name
Has LPL ever reviewed what the best way to reenforce a doorjam to prevent forced entry?
Can you do bank safe deposit boxes? Given the recent news.
Does this cooperation video with stuff made here come at some point or was it just scam? Because I'm really curious about it.
I love you're content but would love to see you pick these locks with you're traditional comfortable tool then with sonething outside you're comfortable zone.
I fear the day when Lock Picking Lawyer turns to the dark side, no padlock will be safe on this planet when he does.
All the locks open themselves as he walk by, and every lock he look at just explodes
what would you say is the toughest lock you’ve picked
Love how casualy you open those locks. Your videos are good and nothing bs like "hey everyone and welcome to my channel" like most of the videos are these days and the tone of your voice is pleasant. I was not even into lock picking till I discovered your channel. Keep up the good work!
What is the difference legally, between a lock-pick, and the non-key piece of metal you used to open the lock?
Where's the Stuff Made Here lock
> spring-loaded locking lug I expected a rapping attack. A bypass is good too.
the burns get as hot as Wasabi
I expected him to tap the lock with the tiny yellow mallet.
