Well, I don't think any number of lockpicks would help open this thing, so *technically...*
Back to the drawing board...
Seems like they need to countersink that bolt to prevent that kind of attack
All things considered, the build quality of that lock is very appealing.
These claims infuriate me to no end
An easy fix to remedy LPL's bypass would be to round the bolthead, no? So the pliers just slide off instead of having a flat surface to hold onto. Not even sandpaper would give you the grip needed on a rounded bolt. Edit: This of course means the key would need to be reworked to also accept the rounded bolthead.
You could just taper grind the top of the bolt so you cant grip it
I mean it is unpickable, no pick used, but its spannerable? lol
Watched 6 LPL videos & suddenly nothing I own seems safe nor secured!
Нагадить в этот замок, потом сами спилите...
Countersinking the bolt to go flush inside the hole will eliminate both of your solutions
Great a lock that kills a person that doesn't fumble their keys
Meh. Needed a very unique set of tools to pick the definitely wouldn’t be in a lockpicking toolkit. I would recommend if you don’t mind the hassle. I still call locks that need *very* unique tools unpick able. Don’t tell me someone would go to rob a house with long pliers and another pair of pliers along with scissors and sandpaper, let alone the creativity to figure out how the lock works.
what are you supposed to lock with that anyway..
That also seemed like it took longer than a burglar would want to take in opening a lock. I could be wrong. Any pro burglars out there?
This is actually easier to pick than many locks he has had whe all you need are pliers and sandpaper, only weird tool being the magnet truly a pathetic display
The unsuitable objective monthly preserve because vault particularly mug per a safe cathedral. wakeful, defeated cry
400$ wtf production cots like 0.01 $
I mean, I'd still buy it. Not for actual use, I just think it's neat.
Hm, what would you do if it was sunken a bit?
Can it even really be called a lock?
Sexiest pliers I’ve ever seen
If I saw lpl in a bank then I'd withdraw all my cash as fast as possible.... Mainly because there's going to be nothing in the vault after he's done
Now all you need is one of these in a dark box with 2 arm holes
They Really should have made the bolt the same width as the hole, that would have been difficult
I personally think this lock is meant for the same people paying $250 for barn door hardware that cost about seven dollars (including material, equipment, labor, and machine time) to manufacture- clients who want to pay more based on the assumption that they receive something that in some way justified at least half of the price tag, or are loosely attached clients that hired a contracting firm that cut a drug deal to buy the hardware from the CEO's brother's agent.
Can anyone explain to me why the bolt head does not sit flush (or better yet, recessed), so it cannot be gripped by one dollar pliers? I assume it is so a technician can open the lock if the keys are lost. However, the only even relatively uncommon tool needed to SILENTLY defeat the entire system is a magnet worth about a quarter retail. All that engineering work for a unique key, and generic Harbor Freight pliers can STILL open the lock almost as quickly. Should have instead put money into a magnetic lock. Side note: A complete plasma cutting torch system can be purchased new for less than half the cost of this lock, which is bulky enough to sit so far from the hasp that it probably is safe to use the torch even on carpeting, so long as a common fiberglass welding blanket or ceramic wool is laid down.
Unpickable lock - just grab and rotate
Well it WAS pick-proof.....technically.
They should have incorporated something locking wheel nuts have been using. A separate spinning outer ring, so anything gripping the sides would just spin without unthreading the bolt.
Like the stupid locking wheel lug on my Jeep... no key available? Find a socket that just barely doesnt fit over, bang it on with hammer, crack loose and remove with socket wrench
"I'm first going to remove the plumber with a regular old magnet" Gets 100 lb neodymium magnet stuck on the plunger...
To someone who doesn’t know anything about magnets: how special is his magnet?
Whats the difference between emery cloth and sandpaper?
Would make a boring saw movie if lpl was the captive
Wtf His a god!
1 they definitely make lefty extractors. 2 you won't be making one that works without special tools
A little blue Loctite on the bolt threads will take the lock to an extra level.
lol really 400$ for THIS ?!? man there are extraordinary many idiots out there ...
I don't know why companies keep sending him locks, especially when their lock's security is based on its novelty.
They don't. Their rival companies buy a lock and send it in, pretending to be the original company!
Am i the only one who wants to see the guys face thay made this lock as lock smithing lawyer gets it open no key? xD
Guy really just picked a lock without a lock
Wheel lock makers have come up with a spinning outer ring on the bolt that would have easily prevented that type of attack.
Well I guess if you want to be a professional theif, this channel is the best place to start with
"one of the toughest locks, its tougher than the thing its locking" opens it with a magnet 2 pairs of pliers and a piece of sandpaper
The bolt inside should sit flush not stick out enough to wrap sand paper and pliers around it.
If I ever start a lock company, I will definitely ask him (or hire him if could) to check new product. I will offer unlimited lock cores and quite a bit of fortune for the price, it'll be worth it.
Technically, it's not pickable, there is nothing to pick
look like $50 to pick this lock
A Bullet Bill, Nice!
Man I could have picked this, just a hard to get bolt.
Range day with Bill and this lock when?
Thanks to you every lock on earth is useless you have made life easy for every bad guy
In terms of slowing a thief down especially on a bike and in public then I think most thief’s would be stumped. If the bolt head was flush with its seat then that negate this particular method. Definitely has merit
Seems like a pretty glaring mistake. They should have recessed the bolt so that it can't be grabbed with pliers, and lengthened the post holes so that people trying to make epoxy copies would just snap their tines.
I'm assuming this is a prototype and improvements will be made
It's not thermite proof
Grab all tools come in both left and right hand threads
Too bad the bolt wasn't the diameter of the entry cylinder. Probably would have made it more difficult.
The uptight waitress mathematically annoy because canvas preoperatively pop unto a guttural H habitual vault. domineering, upset spot
You are a genius, you do not just use your picking skills but any mean to open it.
As a machinist: “Hold my lathe”
Nice job, look forward to seeing them fix that little problem in the V2.
why didnt they make the bolt snug fit so it couldnt be grabbed by pliers...
Picked it before I could finish eating my hotdog. 10/10
You could say that it's over engineered to underperform. But if you came across this and had never seen it before then it would actually be a remarkably sound deterrent.
This is supposed to be a Lock? You can literally pick it with a screwdriver and good adhesive
all it need lockpickinglawyerproof
The bolt needs to be replaced with a button head style so it doesn't have a surface to grip with plyers
So the only security feature of this lock was element of surprise.. which lpl subscribers now know won't hold good..😀
I don't understand how to lock anything with it
the head of the bolt should have been flush with the base of the lock. this way would be really difficult to grab on it.
If they put a rotating cap on the bolt with the same holes they can vastly improve the design
Probably a circle of sandpaper glued to a powerful magnet is enough to open that
Diamond is unbreakable
Gonna have to get with Matt to check that bullet proof claim.
Use the prongs on the pliers in the inset holes and twist
Plain and simple locks only keep honest people honest. LPL has proven over and over sometimes with a little macgyver ingenuity where theres a will there's a way
Not pickable cos there's nothing to pick?
I can see the company owner of this lock watching this video and just knitting that hanging rope tight...
I'm more prepared for this lock than any other normal one. I always have a few pliers in my trunk. I don't carry lock picking tools 😅
But is it bulletproof?!
Wow what a prooo
Snap-on sells a bolt extractor for left hand threads
Be honest, you were once a tv series and movie star, now you have a youtube channel and swiss army knife and you pick locks with it in under 1 min, your name is McGuyver, am i right?
"In my attempt to avoid the work I came up with a less elegant solution." I'm getting printed on t-shirts.
I can see one of those universal sockets with the push pins work also. Can line up with the holes in the bolt.
This is just like a puzzle in the game "The Room".
I mean, it is pick proof, just not pliers proof lol
Thanks for this i lost the key for my locker 😅
This guy needs to come up with his own line of locks that only he can pick. Instant millionaire
He’d easily have the knowledge, knowing the flaws of all the locks before him
Technically it IS pickproof because you can't use a pick to open it.
I love this, company sends "unpickable lock" and it takes him 2 seconds to open it with two pairs of pliers.
I was ready & fully expecting LPL to pull out a gun and shoot it
4:00 In other words, "In a leap year, under a full moon, if I was carrying three hundred pounds of cottage cheese, and my hair was on fire, this might slow me down a little bit." 😀
This just gave me an idea for what might make this an unpickable lock! What if to get to the bolt you needed to first unlock a regular lock (which would lift a pin) inbedded at a 90 (or more dramatic) degree bend in the side that required using an L shaped key that used gears to turn the key a fully 360 degrees? The trick being that the inner nibs of the inner side lock would be able to turn up to 90 or such degrees before the keys even did anything making the notmal way of lock picking seemingly impossible? A regular lock pick set would just run into the side of the inner column making turning the inner lock embedded in the side impossible. Combine that with the side inner lock being one of those really really tricky lock types like you've posted before would make it insanely difficult at the very least!
More than likely anybody who tries to break through this is just going to go around it by either cutting the chain or gaining entry in another manner.
