Approximately 999,999,998 people have asked me to send my unpickable lock to the Lock Picking Lawyer. I decided to do you one better – I’m sending the Lock Picking Lawyer TWO unpickable locks with different designs. It will be interesting to see if he can pick them, if so, we’ll fix those issues to make them even stronger.

  1. 6:45 “It’s a weird way to make a key but it works.” – “I just spent several hours machining these pins and just realized you can buy these for like a penny.” 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Love the honest sense of humor probably just as much as the engineering creativity.

  2. Looking at your gear solution (4:39) I think you could make that work by adjusting the gear ratio so the bottom cylinder rotates faster than the top. Also, instead of using a single solid pin (blue in your illustration), you could stack short pins (red in your illustration) in that lower pin area. Just an idea 🙂

  3. I think these locks are ingenious at first review (check out lock picking lawyer's and his video on the locks) but I think they can benefit using the Hines system or something comparable to that, as another D-i-D layer. Although the downside is that if someone messes up then the lock is dead and the key won't work anymore but hey you prevented your lock from being picked.

  4. I really love the idea of this kind of lock that is unpickable, I'm not done watching but have a question, should the lock work, what happens when you lose your key?

  5. What if instead of springs you used magnets pushing away from each other at the same pole ? The magnet would also make it difficult for anyone using metal lock picking tools since it will pull on them.

  6. I think it would be interesting to do a final review of the finished product and see if it could be picked, and if not, discuss other possible weaknesses. It would be cool if you and LPL made a truly perfectly balanced lock
