(324) PACLOCKs Picked Open, Raked and Dissected (JUNK!)


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. I still don't like or use locks that employs unservicable components or locks that aren't rekeyable.

    All the padlocks that I use are rekeyables that employ UL-437 listed security cylinders with restricted keyways, that are also compatible for use with heavy duty commercial (ANSI/BHMA 156.20 Grade-1) door hardware locksets & deadbolts.

    Other padlocks that I use, of which are also rekeyable that are NOT used for in particularly high security applications use 7-pin tumbler tubular keys, of which I'm also aware that these tubular locks are vulnerable to picking, impressioning & decoding with a special tool that is available on the internet for about $80~$120.

    Additionally, all of these locks that I prefer to use also have solid monolithic bodies of solid hardened steel for security and the alternative of nonsparking solid brass for safety – lock-out & tag-out (LOTO) applications that are sometimes mandated by government regulatory agencies (OSHA & DOL) when working in or on equipment or machinery that are used to effectively isolate or "lock-out" various energy sources to prevent unauthorized, unintentional or accidental operation, of which could cause a dangerous or hazardous condition for both the machinery operator or the maintenance person who is working in or on the machinery.

  2. Every manufacturer has an entry-level product baseline.

    Pacific Lock Company is basically a direct-line competitor of Master Lock Company.

    As with Master Lock, Pacific Lock does have product lines that are well worth the money.

    Just stay away from the non-rekeyable/non-serviceable laminated steel padlocks.

    I personally like the products that take other manufacturers cylinders or cores, which facilitates more options in tailoring security of a particular application.

  3. That is some disappointing stuff. Thankfully we still have companies like Commando who seem to be serious about security, as well as the feedback that they receive from the lockpicking community.

  4. WoW I have one here but mine looks just like the Commando with the same inner rivets but I just took my flash light and it seems it has the same crappy core then yours here… I will try to pick it and catch it on vid!
