(377) Rav Bariach HUGE Padlock Picked (Thanks Bill Croft!)


LockLab is Fan funded!  Help pay for stuff to review, break and talk trash about, and maybe even give away when we’re done.  Join the Tribe!

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. Thanks for your personal marvelous posting! I quite enjoyed reading it, you might be a great author.I will make certain to bookmark your blog and will come back later on. I want to encourage you to ultimately continue your great job, have a nice morning!

  2. Mul-T-Lock is a spin-off company of Rav-Bariach that started off as a door company but later needed a more international name so Mul-t-lock was picked. It was later purchased by Assa-Abloy but they didn't want the doors section of Rav Bariach so they bought only the Mul-t-Lock brand. Later they had a long battle over the symbol (the key with the flexing hands) and eventually Mul-t-lock won and Rav Bariach had to change their logo. This is why you may find older locks with the same logo and these are not fake or copied locks. The lock itself is designed to be used in a Retek (not sure the English name for this) device (http://www.rav-bariach.co.il/lockingProduct.aspx?id=81). It is a two part steel block where you put the hasp from the top and the body of the lock from the bottom to protect against cutting. These are very popular in Israel.

  3. The shackle is meant to come off like that, it makes it easier to apply to the gate etc… without the hindrance of the lock body.

    Definitely a copy of a Mul-t-lock.

  4. The loud snap makes me wonder whether it would be instructive – either for your viewing audience, or for you as a lockpicker – to employ sound-detection devices while you work. Like a stethoscope (for your ears) or contact mic (for the recording). Ever tried that?
    Something tells me this kind of auditory feedback might benefit a n00b like me.

  5. Thanks for sharing that hunk of steel, looks pretty awesome. Love to have something like that hanging on my locker at work!! Probably break the hasp off. Great picking as usual Bill.
