Order now and you can avoid the rush when they arrive. 👍
Would have liked to see the innards of this lock...
@Jun127 You haven’t head about the stuff made here lock, bc he probably cant get it open. He’s good with his locks, but that stuff made here dude is on another level. I doubt he’ll be able to get it open.
Waiting for Stuff Made Here lock!!!

Is there a Lishi tool that will work on an Abus Titalium 80TI/50? Those padlocks are easy to shim, but some are a real nightmare to pick. I would love to purchase a Lishi tool for those locks to train myself to be able to SPP the more difficult examples.
So... this Lock was like the Bluetooth of the Lock World...? :P
No way!! I have this lock on my backyard garage door! I remember being a kid and using a stick to open the door, our is so old you don't need to pick it anymore 😅
Could you show us your whole lock collection one day please? That would be awesome!
Perfect if you just need to keep someone from wandering into an office
It takes about as much time to remove the knob with a hammer. Improving the lock was never going to stop someone.

Question: Do the internals get damaged by rake attacks?
Never get locked out of you house! This easily pickable lock will ensure that you never i left in the cold
I think the idea behind this kind of lock in the "Day" was it was versatile. Chances are the building had a security guard(s) on duty 24/7. Being able to cheaply have 50 or more doors all keyed differently but still having the ability to have a master was the selling point.
I just realized something; here in Sweden, knob door handles are incredibly rare. I think I've only every seen one once in my entire life.
1:06 Tiny whales!!
OMG WHY IS THAT SO SATISFYING
If there's one thing I have learned from LPL, it's that the old adage "locks are for keeping honest people honest" is true
Your comments give the year for this lock to be obsolete by 1927. How long did the patent last before it was essentially unreliable/ not dependable? Are all old patents now obsolete?
Serial killers all over the world thank you with every video you put out... the rest of us not so much.
My grandparents still have one of those on their front door
No way! Acme cut my key for me! Very cool
"Obsolete When Introduced" can be applied to most things produced I find.
might as well just leave your door open
Thats what they used on my college dorm.
*looks at my house door knob*
I would like to see it broken down, and master pined
I've got these on my house still

Hey Mr,lock pick lawyer. Have you seen any lock's called "Confair" ??? You put your key in the lock and turn then pull and it slips to another set of tumblers, and the key uses another turn and it opens.... Oh, you haven't? Lol, because I invented it! To keep my teenage kids out of my stash! They kept picking it, til I made my own lock!😂😂😂😂😂😂
I once opened one of these with a scissors back when I was a kid.
ya just remember locks wasn't meant to keep dedicated criminals out , just to keep honest people honest
“Ey Roy, you wouldn’t believe it! Some mook tried tried to escape my boys from givin’ him a little dirt nap by lockin’ himself in his apahtment.” “Well, how did ya get in, Morty?” “Get this. The nincompoop had one o’ those Schlage wager locks. That airhead probably thought it was the bees knees. Any way, it took me half a second before I broke in and gave him the old ring-a-ding-ding, shee? Now, he’s sleeping with the fishes.”
It's good for low security areas in a office building aslong as your main door lock is good if your janitors closet lock was cheep its probably fine
This is the exact lockset that my childhood home had. The house was built in 1963 in Salt Lake City. I always thought the use of copper was appropriate given that the largest open pit copper mine in the world was right across the valley from where my home was built. I've wanted to change the knobs in my present home to match this one. They can't be found, at least not easily.
These were quite popular in the uk, they looked quite advanced for 1929 considering most door furniture then was bakelite.
You can tell someone isn't from Canada when they pronounce "Toronto" instead of "Torono"
This is the only channel where when a video is really short I get more excited. Like if the videos under 3 minutes I know the company fucked up
Those door handles bring back school doors
but why would a Masterlock smith send you something?
Exact type of lock that’s been on our front door since the 70s. First lock I ‘had’ to pick; nana left her keys inside...
Many of the older apartment buildings I managed in So. Cal for 30 years had those on the door knobs and I hated carrying a big keychain full of keys all the time while on maintenance calls. All of them I could open with a Mac Tools automotive rocker pick just using the single tool as a rake and tensioner. I cut the tool in half and carry the end that opens my truck easily as well as all of those type of doors in my wallet just in case I do something stupid like lock my keys in my truck.
What is a grandmaster key?
I had one on my room door and i could open it with a flat head screw driver
I used to do that with a mini screw driver when I was a kid.
I came predicting a raking attack. Did not disappoint.
We had one of these on my garage. Whenever I needed to get in without the key I would just shake the handle back and forth really fast and it would unlock in a few seconds.
As a very amateur lock picker forty years ago I quickly realised that locks are a psychological defense only as most are all but useless and even the most sophisticated can be overcome with skill and the right tools. The weak point is the interface between lock and key. I designed a simple lock that was powered by electromagnetic induction (from the "key") and a rotating handshake code. Totally secure thanks to the inverse square law of magnetism. The locks were cheap, the "keys" expensive but could be "programmed" to learn multiple locks. When the four inch battery powered disk grinder arrived I thought I'd get rich (because my locks didn't require access) but nobody was interested. The people who really want security pay for it and everybody else accepts the risk.
How do you rake a wafer lock? It's back and forth movement which makes sense with a normal pin lock because it translates vertically, but how does the raking rotate the wafers?
acme...used by coyotes everywhere to catch roadrunners. (sadly, it never works.)
A lock made to a budget. For bathroom and bedroom doors in a house, the lock is entirely suitable.

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.
Sorry but that's a rather silly place to put the blame. These companies continue to sell products that don't do the job they claim to do with enough proficiency. Trying to keep that a secret is the wrong way to remedy the problem.
I've always heard "most locks are for honest people"
@City Lock a polytechnikey llc company well I think the thing to take away from it is if someone REALLY wants to get in somewhere, they'll always find a way, lock or not. Locks are made to deter the common person
@City Lock a polytechnikey llc company Of course. I can make pet food sound great with fancy words.
That is the phrase that a person comes up with to not use a good product, when price is the deciding factor. And that is how we get "Builder Grade", which is a euphemism for garbage.
Which is funny, because even when I heard it as a kid I thought it was quite the oxymoron of statements.
He only raked it once so it could be a fluke! I am joking.
A lot of my customers have these on their shore houses. Since they're only used for about four months a year. There's also a senior complex that uses these because the cheap-ass lawyer that owns the place wont upgrade. I still have the bench punch for these that my father's business partner "acquired" at a trade show back in the 70's. It was a prototype that never went into production.
This makes sense for internal locks. If the main building lock is secure the internal locks don't need to be.
These locks used to be used on state housing back in the 60’s to 80’s. I used to get a literal steel bucket full of them every other day that they had no keys to. Most of the time I just had to make a set of keys to suit the existing permutation. They served a purpose in a generation where locking your door was not needed.
The way you say:" Please Subscribe." Is music to my ears.
I have 4 of those.
I once opened one of these with a butter knife. It may have been damaged though since it was already old and disassembled twice already
If you ever think you can skimp on quality, you should never try to produce security items.
what kind of person downvotes LPL?
. Your the best of the best Houndini would be truly amazed your just simply the best.
I’d be impressed if the key is cut with SC1 blanks
ACME.. always has been better then master, just ask the roadrunner
Something from Toronto? Of course it sucks Source: I live in this cursed city
There's an easier and quicker method that was used for eons that employed the use of a stiff white and half keys. The same effect could be achieved with a key blank.
I remember when I used my wave rake in the early to mid 1900's. Lol. Still love the skill LPL.
I still cut about 50-100 of these keys per year in the hardware store I work
We used to have those kind of door knobs before, I remember that wiggling the door knob hard enough is more than enough to unlock it. I'm not sure why but it could be the age of the lock.
Still have customers come in that need these key copied. I’m the only one that understands how to make them. Can’t believe people still have them on their houses but they do
From what I remember, the saying was that a lock was to keep the honest people out. A crook that wants to get in will.
I used to pick these as a kid using Bobby pins
Usually office doors "protect" the office from other workers, same as locked drawers, that's probably why they were so popular - they don't need to be more secure than that. Also all office building/floors have some kind of main door locked with a proper key (relatively speaking).
I’ve certainly opened one of these without even any picks! Just jiggling the handle enough while turning has worked for me before!
This is the best channel on youtube

ACME Locks? bet they are designed to explode in Wile E. Coyote's hands......
The locksmith I worked for during college years claimed he could open one of these with a popsicle stick... And I believe it.
Seems like one thats really meant to be more of an annoyance to keep unauthorized, but honest people out of an office, but not offer any real security from an actual attack.
It's mind boggling that this was done in 1927. The Abloy Classic was created in 1907 so by 1927 all the Abloy patents would have already expired so they could have simply copied the design for free. If you compare this lock to Abloy Classic, there's no competition.
After watching this for months i am now a professional thief.
I have a similar lock in my house😅
@Walang Kwentang TV No😂
Where do you live may i know your address?
I have never picked a lock in my entire life but I have 4 years of experience in lockpicking now
Quite a common type of door lock in Asia. For internal doors.
This lock is basically an "office lock", it's not meant to protect anything important.
I could’ve sworn I heard you on NPR talking about allowing employers giving time off for Covid vaccines
Still look kinda nice
I love it!.. But i mean, why does a channel about locks have over 3 million subscribers?
Is it just me?
To be fair, these locks were meant to keep people out when you were boning your secretary, not for thwarting advanced criminal attacks.
Anyone else waiting and perhaps getting a little inpatient for Stuff Made Here Lock lol. Still clicking tho!!!
"Stuff" Brand lock when
Master lock has there eye on this one
That looks suspiciously like my door locks
Someone tell me why does he sound like the EMH of Star Trek Voyager
Where is the Stuff Made Here lock? It's been months. Did they not send it in?
He doesn’t carry keys with him. Just his lock pick set. Just picks his locks to enter his house. 😂
Oh man you just brought up all these memories of being a latch key kid from the 90s. The apartment i grew up in had that same door knob and key combo.
When is the made with stuff here lock being picked? You give up and not post it?
How do I get started in lock picking and what are the best pics to buy
