  1. In Canada the laws restricting locksmith tools except key cutters say refer to provincial law restricting locksmith tools in Ontario refer to municipal laws restricting locksmith tools for example Ottawa might restrict use but Almonte might not restrict use.Also find out about lock types and features that could exist in locks in your area then find out about which lock types are common in your area and what tools are required to open those locks. When you are getting close to when you are able to work find out about and attend trade shows like Security Canada. if you want to make challenge locks are able to then watch lock lab’s Psychological Warfare

  2. Hi Bill I noticed the lock in this video (1011)Blake Wants Tribe’s Advice Is a Weiser clone not Kwikset clone I also did not know that the comment from 5:07pm April 25,2017 had sent

Also find about lock types and then find out which are common in your area so you have an idea what features could exist in locks in your area and what tools are required

  5. Serrated pins will work with threaded shell. Neither mushroom nor spool pin will work right. I know from my point of view and had years of picking experiences.

  6. Blake, nice job on your first lock.
    Some of the things you might want to try on your next could be try making a “T” using a drill to hold the pin and a file to form the end. I make mine on a lathe. Plus you might not want to thread all the holes change things up and use different types of springs.
    Serrated pins are always good with thread holes.
    Keep up the good work and you’ll get there.

  7. Cheap brands name means cheap quality, apparently to me, another example copy of Kwikset lock. I know the key grooves. No questions, Hello Canada!

  8. Blake: always keep researching. hi,lo,hi,lo,hi (makes lock easy to overset pins, thus harder to pick) that combined with the serrated spools can make for a very frustrating lock.

    Nice job on the one you made! Thataboy

  9. The best way to make a lock unpickable is Gorilla Glue and then weld it. (HAR)
    I like the idea of putting in the ledge piece. Bill has done 2 vids on these, neither of which he could pick. Looks easy to do and with spools, der yaggo.

  10. I'm personally not a locksmith/picker, but I've watched enough of Bill's videos to have a pretty good understanding of what makes a tough lock. If I were to make a 5-pin challenge lock right now, I'd likely choose 4 serrated key pins, leaving one very low cut standard pin right in front. As for the bible, custom pin-in-pins would likely be the best choice, but likely would require a lathe I don't have, so I'd try a mixture of serrated and spools along with three really light springs and two incredibly strong springs to make it tough.
    Hope that'd help!

  11. Is it just me or was this mushroom, spool, spool, mushroom, serrated? Looks like they are from the sparrows reload kit judging from those copper springs

  12. How to pin up a mean challenge lock:
    1. Pin up all standard pins and find 2 chambers that bind first.
    2. Use a tap to thread all other chambers, do not touch the two you found in step 1.
    3. Take the cylinder and choose such bottom pins for the two un-threaded cylinders that a spool resting on top of the bottom pin in those cylinders has the skinny part at the sheer line.
    4. Pin up the top with serrated pins in all threaded chambers and spools in unthreaded ones.

    You are done.

  13. Have him go to your video on how to make homemade security pins and that'll help add to the arsenal to turn that lock into something more challenging,

  14. Hey Blake, don't thread all the chambers in the core. If you are using threaded chambers then be sure to use serrated key pins. It looks like you used the key and key pins from a normal door lock so you could take something like a piece of machine screw the same length as a key pin to make a dandy trick of things.
