Novice-Level Security: Reset Puck Lock
This is the lock begin lawyer, and one of the tougher styles of padlocks that are readily available here in the US is the hidden shackle design, something that many call Puck locks for obvious reasons. They’re, so tough, because the shackle is completely surrounded by the bulky metal body. They also have an inherent Advantage when it comes to picking, because the way they’re mounted forces a picker to approach the lock in an unusual way. Given all of that, it’s understandable. Why?
So many people rely on these for their highest security applications. Now, if you’ve been watching this channel for long, you know that Reliance is often misplaced. Probably the worst offender is Master Lock. If you don’t know what I’m talking about see, video 1197 I’ll link it in the description below you’re, going to be shocked, but Master Is Not Alone In selling deceptively weak. Puck locks today we’re looking at the reset brand, something that seems to be fairly popular on Amazon.
I’ve already confirmed that it can’t be combed, so we’re going to lock it to a hasp and try to pick it with that awkward positioning. Okay, I’m going to use the tools that I have with me every day in my covert companion. I of course sell these over on covertinstruments.com, I’m taking out my 40 000 thick Turner and we’re going to start by single, pin, picking and I’ll just take out a standard hook. There we go.
Let’s get this in the top of the keyway. Okay, click out of one nothing on two click out of three click out of four: nothing on five six is binding and it looks like we got that open. Okay, I did not feel any security pins, so let’s lock it back up and see if we can rake it open as well foreign and very quickly. We got that open. Let’s do that one more time, just to make sure it’s not a fluke, and once again we got it open very quickly, okay, folks, obviously this provides very little pick resistance.
I’d say not even enough to challenge a novice picker. In any case, that’s all I have for you today if you do have any questions or comments about this, please put them below if you like this video and would like to see more like it please subscribe and as always have a nice day. Thank you.
