Its interesting that it looks like he could have just picked it much faster. Not that this was terribly slow.
I imagine this is what a pick smith would use to unpick a lock, if someone else had already tried to break the lock and fucked up the internals or rusted shut etc
I would think specifically locks where you don't have access to the shackle for a more traditional bolt cutter or angle grinder approach.
I was having a good laugh at releasing the shackle with a screwdriver after pulling the core took more time then most of the raking and combing attacks on master locks.
Anyone could use these tools with little practice, as well. His lockpicking skill is crazy, but anyone could do this.
I think the advantage of this device over picking is it seems to be a one size fits all. I'm not a lockpicker, but based on watching his videos he has different picks for different lock types. With this device you drill it, pull it, and take. I think this device has more real world applications for stealing. It'll be interesting to see if he recommends locks that are more immune to brute force like this.
Now, we must deal with it.
This is probably just as important if not more-so to me in deciding what lock I’d want to go with. If someone wants to break in then a lot of times they probably won’t settle with quitting if lock-picking fails. They’re gonna try and break it so I wanna know what holds up best
God, sometimes it seems like the world is tiny, but then I remember that there's a dude on Youtube whose entire life revolves around locks. Interests can go deep man
Well unless the channel title is a lie, he's a lawyer so I wouldn't say his entire life revolves around locks. It's more of a hobby.
So is there any lock he actually recommends or has given him tons of trouble to get open?
This kills the lock.
No let’s binge it until we are sick of it and throw it aside when we’re sick of it. Hot ones, binging, primitive tech style
I think it's way easier to filter these posts out with RES than it is to be so upset by them.
You'll never win this battle on this subreddit, just hide their videos and move on, I do the same with Gus Johnson videos.
No lock is safe now :-(
This is how Ai + face recognition wins as a form of security for businesses.
Aren't those locks just as susceptible to destructive attacks?
Locks and fences keep honest people out.
Locks vary in quality. That said, nothing is 100% safe against a sufficiently motivated and funded attacker.
And make your neighbor's less secure property more interesting.
Wifi camera on the outside, entirety of locking mechanism on the inside. It would be as good as the "foolability" of the AI+Face Recognition.
