(1228) Review: Padlock Shims (& GIVEAWAY)


LockLab is Fan funded!  Help pay for stuff to review, break and talk trash about, and maybe even give away when we’re done.  Join the Tribe!

My vises are made by Panavise, a U.S. Company.  The one with the wide jaws is the model 350.  The smaller one is the model 301. Both have the 312 Base mount – www.panavise.com



  1. Great tip on the dummy battery! I was given a set of those el cheapo padlock shims. The only way I can use them is in a pair of vise grips, holding them around the lock;s hasp. Not too tight though, or you cannot wiggle it down into the lock.

  2. How do we join the giveway? im looking for an unpickable or hard to pick deadlock for my moms front door

  3. I’m possibly being a bit slow here (which wouldn’t be a first for me) but how do I enter your giveaways?

  4. I saw the cheap sets too, almost got suckered in. I bought my beginner set from Southord after watching your videos and haven’t stopped picking since. thank you for giving me a new hobby for my retirement.

  5. Good review. Was going to order this set. Glad I didn’t. Will deffintly be ordering the sparrows kit instead.

  6. I sent this on youtube but if it is not seen there i hope you see it here i came across you’re channel a while ago and I’ve been bingeing videos and brought my own lock picking set thx man for the entertainment

  7. Just started picking about a week ago and have been watching your videos to learn how to do it so far I’ve learned a lot thanks to you staying safe & legal

  8. Hi, Bill I could use the shims, I am building up a smart kit. Sorry to change the subject, but could you do a video on repinning. I want to see how people jam so many pins in a chamber especially with stiff springs.

  9. Cheap Chinese crap is crap, go figure. I feel bad for the people that buy these recycled soda cans expecting to be able to use them as intended.

    Thanks for what you do Tribe Leader, and yay for the new camera accessories!

  10. Those cheap shims remind me of the first pick kit I bought. They where a very cheap set of goso picks that I bought for 5 bucks on some site.They where clearly just punched out some cheap metal. I even broke one after like a month or so of using it.
