  1. I will never use a keyed lock of any kind ever again! Knowing that there are people like you out there teaching thieves and crooks and no good jobless jerks with no moral center within them how to do these things so easily is so comforting and just leaves me a warm fuzzy feeling right at the core… Knowing that anyone who wanted to steal from someone but didnt know how exactly could just you tube it and here you are to teach them step by step, and even teach them why it works! You are just sooo thorough in your teaching of how to steal, Mr. thief professor! Saying keep it legal is ridiculous cause the people you are saying that to are not going to keep it legal! Why do you need to impart this knowledge so freely on Youtube in today's day and time?!? Are we trying to breed a new generation of no good thieves??? WTF?!

    1. The knowledge is already out there if you are of that nature. Bill, as with most in the locksport community, is showing weaknesses to educate others so they can make more informed decisions when protecting their personal property.

    2. HeH Funny. A thief would most likely just use a pry bar or something like that, and open the lock just as quickly, come on, in the 80s a photocopied book (the anarchists handbook) was floating around my highschool and had this type of information and a lot more, to my mind unless you practice a lot, picking locks takes time a destructive method would be quicker.

  2. "Not surprising" shining pot metal from China. I chuckled to myself when you said you were surprised.

    99% of the time if it says China it is crap.

  3. you dont need a picker or a key! think about: steal in messing body? how montage? inside from the middel are the place you must look! when you send a box, they are bounded with plstik strings. cut tin plasti T. push they inseide in the hole..from the middel..inside..then you have the steal and the body…afer you klick the steel back! no demage no skratches! sorry for my bad english!

  5. Interesting didn't know this so had to try it out. It turned out as I had figured. The cheaper locks don't have the shielding which makes them very easy to open. The heavier and a bit more expensive locks did have the shielding. Thanks a lot for this video!
