  1. I’m still sifting through your 850+ videos but I’m hoping I find one that gives some history of your dealings with Master Lock Co. Surely by now these guys are getting with you in hopes of making their products better, right? Before I started watching your work, I would have guessed Master was at the top of the lock game. Thanks for enlightening me!

  2. Superb blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article? I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get responses from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks a lot!

  3. Master lock #21 is also a laminated removable core lock. I have 1 that I have been working on for months now and have only managed a false set. I have 15 locks now and it is the only one that I can't open yet.

  4. jke really enjoyed this one really a beginning here but have always been fascinated<spelled right?> by the art of picking locks but just now giving it a try…really enjoy your videos on this manly thanks joe

  5. Bill, that steel plate on the bottom was held in with 1 small screw. This may be a stretch, but it seems like it would be possible to insert a straight screwdriver into the opening made to give the key access to the core, and hammer it downwards towards the direction of the screw- essentially prying that plate upwards until the screw breaks and the steel plate falls right off.

  6. I hate to say this but you are observant as a blind person. What do you think the 5 holes on the bottom of the lock core is used for? To allow air in there? You turn the cylinder 180 degrees and you can drop all 5 pins and put new pins in.

  7. As you get so many pin trays made and sent to you but you always go back the black one even through some are better, is there a reason way

  8. I'm pretty new to picking but I have a single-shackle (bolt) pad lock with WB on the side it brass the bolt is chrome. It looks like a 5 pin. I can't find any videos of these kind of locks. Could you do one and break it down (gut) like the rest of your videos. Thanks for all your wisdom. Justin
