      Yes but then it wouldn't be a Master Lock

            Is there any advice you could give us regarding owning a set of lock picks in a state where they are illegal? Is there any way I can argue for owning them without taking them out of my house? I'd like to practice lock picking, but lock picks are illegal in my state.

              Unless LPL gets a massively larger audience, Master won't change. Share this video!

                  What would be the best lock 🔐 for a shipping container with and without lockbox. It is storing valuable items. Thank you for your help.

                    I cant imagine this lock functioning in the cold. If I cant take a flame to my frozen lock without worrying about melting its guts or permanently disabling it then forget that lock. What do you think would happen if you took a torch and got the lock hot enough to melt the plastic? Could it help pick it or would it disable the lock permanently? Experiment?!?!

                      That’s really cleaver. If you couldn’t get to the side bar which wouldn’t be difficult to fix, then that would be a decent lock

                            The phrase "Pick Proof" and "Master lock" in the same sentence? Inconceivable!

                              Too bad about the plastic bars in the core which will turn brittle over time no matter what they say. Imagine making brass replacements just for hobby's sake. This core would be pure magic with 100% non-plastic components.

                                  Clearly, every lock designer knows exactly what the Achilles Heel is in their mechanism. They're just hoping that it somehow remains a secret, and that the advertising dept does a good job of brainwashing the naive public. What a rip!

                                    It's not legally declared unpickable so LPL lays down the law

                                            I have learnt 2 things from the lpl. 1. Master lock should rename themselves amateur lock.
                                            2. I may as well not bother with a lock.

                                                It they would have not left that one bit so revealing then it should be unpickable
                                                Unless there will be a new tool....

                                                  The weird thing about Master Lock is that the actual nut and bolt engineering seems to be really good. Lots of thought put into the various mechanisms they have. The only problem is that they can't open their own locks. If you can't open it, it's not broken, I guess.

                                                      Great camera work and excellent narration as usual. I liked the in-depth explanation of the locking mechanism, you've certainly got it sorted! Masterlock pah! I might get a couple of their training locks, its good that they make em for us to doss about with.😋💨😁

                                                        Is there a lock that provides a tamper-evident indicator in case someone attempted and/or succeeded in picking it? I'm imagining something like a pin that is never set by the key but would be easily set through picking and once set, could not be unset except after opening with the key, and would leave a visible indication for the owner, and then perhaps only at the time of unlocking using the key.

                                                          It seems like lock manufacturers do a disservice to consumers by producing locks that are easily defeated. People assume that most locks provide reasonable security. I guess as long as people keep buying them, they'll keep making this kind of junk. My question for LockPickingLawyer is roughly what percentage of locks do you think are not merchantable?

                                                              In fairness to this lock, It would have been unpickable if you did not open it first to study the mechanism.
                                                              Unless the thieves watched this episode, they wouldn't be able to open this lock using standard lock picking.
                                                              I would rate this LPL3

Or am I not understanding the design? Or design in a small block along the side of the core to block entry of the first tool? I am lost in these things, but they are real brain teasers!
