  1. Hey Bill, I’m brand spankin new to lockpicking… started a wopping like 4 days ago or so… found (as you’ve pointed out in your videos) most kasterlocks are easy enough to pick, weather by rake, zip, or SPP…. but that Brinks R70… you make it look so darn easy and have only been able to pick the bugger a couple times, never twice in a row. Would you say it is simply a slightly more advanced padlock? Or am I just goofing up? Tried zipping, SPP, raking (though the L rake I have broke…. have the cheap GOSO kit)… any tips not mentioned in the video?

  2. I always look at the bitting of every available lock of the type I am looking at before buying a practice lock.

  3. I bought the R70 as my first lock to pick, tried for about a hour couldn't figure it out but after watching i was able to get it open. Cant rake it yet but i will keep trying. The tension was the issue in my case.

  4. Sonofabitch…how the heck did you get that thing to rake!?
    I've been at it for over an hour now and the stupid thing won't frickin budge!

  5. Frickin great…
    I just started out at this again after a 15 year hiatus and have been punching walls because I can't pick one of these. Nice to know now after watchign your video that there are damnable security pins in this lock. And it required so much darn force on the tension bar that my hand muscles were cramping up….ugh.

    I'm too old for this bullcrap…

  6. I got one of these off a customers storage unit due to lost key. I have been picking it for a few days since I got my Peterson par bars. Anyway the I have yet to rake it but the bitting is pretty good. SPP works great. They are very hard to pick in the wild. I NEVER recommend these for outdoor use. I had one I had to drill as it would not pick. I finally got the shackle move just enough to remove it. I ended up "slicing" it in half. The whole inside was RUSTED. The shackle was fused to the bar just inside the left shackle hole. You can see the photo on my facebook business page. http://www.facebook.com/longslocksmithservice

  7. Oh, man.  I got one of these several years ago and I had the hardest time getting it to bind.  I tried and tried for like half an hour and then I looked it up on a forum that I was frequenting and they mentioned the large amount of tension you had to place on it in order to get it to bind.  I just placed a crapload until it moved and picked it.  It was remarkably easy and I was shocked to learn that there were security pins in it.  This was the first lock I opened that had security pins aside from a fluke Master 140 which popped essentially by just placing the pick in, and bounce the wrench lightly once or twice.  I actually had a master discus lock (Master 40DPF or a variant) which was actually harder and didn't have the massive spring messing things up.

  8. I had to laugh- this is the first lock i learned to pick on and you held it and picked it exactly the way i do.- I have no idea where the key is, I found it in a bucket at the storage place- it is pretty worthless for security

  9. I'd say there ARE no "most secure disk style" locks. This comes up often so the other day I made a video to elp people decide on the "right" lock for their specific application. See: "(405) Choosing a High Security Lock"
