  1. can paclock pins and paclock springs fit in a master lock to make some real evilness take place? (ie: some american spools and serrateds, some paclock serrateds, mix into an american or a master…)

  2. I am thinking a piece of machinery so finely engineered is not going to have a sloppy fitting cylinder/plug by accident. It could make even a Masters some thing of a challenge! Your talents are off the chart, Bill!.
    I am curious as to how they introduce that slop and maintain the precision function.

  3. I just bought a real cheapie pad lock imported from greenbriar international made in china real junk but when you put tension on the plug it turns not allowing the bottom pins to push up either by design or luck not sure which. only way to do that has to be the bottom and top pins turn together with the top pins already flush with the top inside the lock with holes allowing them to pus up into them. cost $1.07 at a dollar tree store . real cheap but no picking

  4. i have an assa 600 with the assa spools and a little cutaway in the holes in the core and every time i pick another pin it drops all of them.

  5. Great channel Bill, I had little interest in locks and picking until the day I had to pick my garage after school with my sisters bobby pins.

    Otherwise it would have been a long cold wait till my Mum got home from work.

    It was surprisingly easy, and today after watching your videos I went out to the garage and ground a few picks into existence out of some old tools and a fashioned a tension wrench from a windshield wiperblade core.

    I think i'll start picking the locks that are laying around as a bit of a hobby.
    I like the tediousness and focus needed for picking, it takes your mind off everything going on but those pins.

    It's kinda therapeutic (for someone who doesn't do it everyday).
    And a practical skill is something that never leaves you.

    Thanks for the knowledge.

  6. Is this really that different than an American in terms of picking? I have an american 6pin with 5serrated drivers and one spool driver, and i just want to know which challenge should be next. Is this one really THAT much better?

  7. FROM STIG..LOCKS..TO BILLLL IHAVE LOVED LOCKS ALL MY LIFE AT LEAST SEVEN BUT IVE WATCHED ALL YOUR VIDEOS AND I THINK THEY ARE AAMAZING ALL OF THEM ONE DAY ILL SEND U A STIG LOCK PRACTISE LOCK AND SEE IF U CAN DO IT STIG LOCK OK USA I MEANT I WAS SEVEN YEARS OLD WHEN I STARTED THANKS STIG

  8. You have got me addicted sir!! I only have picked master locks and a few dead bolts but will keep watching to learn. Sad to say yesterday I got frustrated with a master lock, lol!! Got to start somewhere though I guess!!!! Thks for the vids

  9. The military uses PacLock 100s as well as American Lock 5200s to secure most things, but not all. For armories, the only authorized removable lock is the Sargent & Greenleaf 951 series. I am interested in seeing you try to pick a S&G 951 as it has very interesting keying.

  10. My buddy let me try and pick his PacLock and that thing drove me nuts! Took me weeks of trying to finally get it open! 

  11. Wouldn't the chrome-plated core retainer on such locks present a potential "single point of failure" in the sense that drilling out the "tube" (of which the threaded end, I presume, is what the Phillips screw screws into?) would immediately release the core from the lock?

  12. I will do a video on it. I believe that it is tighter tolerances on the housing of the core, the spring tension and the floppy tolerances within the padlock body (the core can flop around).

  13. I'm not so sure… The PACLOCK is about 100x harder to pick that the earlier generation Commando Locks. Try it and you'll see what I mean. I'm guessing it is either tighter tolerances in the core or the reverse spring tension, but whatever it is it works well.

  14. Hey Bill, after taking a look at one of these cores myself I noticed a HUGE similarity with the security pins of Commando Locks old Generation security pins. I believe they are probably manufactured in the same company. At least the pins and maybe also the cores.
