looking for the tools used in LockLab videos?

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. Honestly I stumbled upon some of your videos about a year ago and got sucked into the lock-lab vortex. Being in construction for 14 years I didn’t realize there was anything other than masterlock. I would probably have more of my tools had I found you stuff a decade ago. I would love to have the 543 be the crown jewel of my beginning collection. Newest addiction. Thank you. Stay safe, stay legal!

  2. Your Pad-Locks look to Beautiful to use, Please add me to the Contest and Good luck Everyone.

  3. what a beauty, that would be very nice for my Motorbike ground lock (anchored in concrete). fingers crossed for the giveaway 🙂

  4. Love collecting locks. Awesomely inventive mechanism and would love to add it to my collection

  5. I like how it’s a simple 45° turn to seat the key and it seats horizontally unlike the door lock that takes a 180° turn. Looks really promising, even if it is huge!

  6. Amazing lock.. I’d be even more amazed if someone managed to pick it! It would be a fantastic addition to my little collection 🙂

  7. Very cool lock, and give a way! Thanks for your generosity and I appreciate everything you continue to do within the community.

  8. That’s a fantastic lock. I’ve got a couple of ideas but I’ll need time and a machine shop (and an example lock!) to have a go.

  9. Absolute amazing lock, buffing up secruity while still be nostalgic to the old skeleton keys. It’s like mad science.

  10. I haven’t been able to afford any of their locks yet, & would love to have this lock.

  11. im new to lock picking and would love to have this lock you gave enough information about it i love watching you pick locks

  12. As much as I need a new pick set this lock is awesome. I’ve collected locks for a long time but obviously not one like this. I can hope though.

  13. Amazing videos , it’s like my ASMR , lock picking calms me at night . does not bore me to sleep , haha

  14. Hi Bill, I was wondering what are your thoughts on Chris picking the bowley Mortis would make a interesting video. Cheers Kai

  15. That’s a nice looking lock, those Bowley guys must really dislike us for making that thing.

  16. OK so I have the Lockwood lock that you showed in the video and I know how heavy that is, I can’t imagine how heavy the bowley lock is. Thanks for showing us Bill

  17. Wow, how does that key not get broken at some point? With the lock built to that level of security I guess you’d have to trash whatever it’s locked onto to gain entry. Carry a cutting torch on your keychain…

  18. I’m speechless….bill…. I don’t know if you’ve just completely lost it or if you have a heart of gold. To give this away…wow. I’m not a religious man, but I pray that my name comes up on this. I would work non-stop to have a chance to crack that engineering marvel. I’ve been following the bowley mortis and all the different attacks people have tried. When I saw that Chris finally did it I thought it was a joke, but then I saw his tools and watched it happen. Amazing. Again your nuts and thanks for the opportunity!!

  19. Love that lock.been hearing a lot about that lock. I’m new to the hobby and want to learn as much as possible. I watch all your videos and have learned a lot thanks.

  20. Awesome lock. I've seen you do reviews with these shrouded locks and they look really tough to crack open. cant wait to see how it happens. Or try myself.
