Can you recommend a bike lock please?

I hope Bosnian Bill and LPL don't get sued by some big billion dollar company. Because if Bill and LPL didn't make this tool, Someone else would have. Lock Companies should always work as if they're products will be cheated, and need to not be lazy and have innovation.

Good luck stealing my brother's bike after picking the lock. It's slow, heavy, bright, and he always removes the seat after parking it. A real eyesore and a literal pain in the ass.

A lock picking tool that is so uncommon that not all "locksmiths" have one in spite of the relatively inexpensive price tag.
This is the reason why my bike will get robbed

So the question remains, what is the "best" bike lock?? Geez.

It's simple, just insert the photon displacement apprentice inside the vibranium coupling module and adjust the quantum neutrino parameters until a critical antimatter flux ratio is achieved. And that's how you pick the kryptonite lock!

So what you are saying is this would be really hard to pick if only you hadn’t gone out of your way to make a special tool to do it, and is now being sold to the public.

A few years ago i had such a lock, brand new. And i got stuck for a hour because it didnt open with the key. Perhaps its made too cheap or its because it was brand new... the key didnt enter properly to the very "in" position. After wd40 and lot of time i saw the problem, could enter the key and open it and brought it back to the shop.

I guess we have to use multiple locks of differing types so no 1 tool can be used to pick.

I've been trying to find a lock that would do well, but I'm incredibly paranoid when it comes to security... It's not so much that I feel I'm surrounded by thieves, but more that I'm so low on money that I don't think I'd be able to risk losing my bike since it's my own method of transport at the moment. (though, I do live in a place with bike thieves, my bike stays inside the house so it's not possible for people to take it, more so shops, work, and town.) (EDIT: OK, I'm a little dumb, and didn't realise I had a video qued for auto-play about recommended locks, so I call back this question (unless people have insight), but am keeping it in because I personally like to not entirely change my comments after I post them.) What locks would best be recommended? I heard a lot about these Kryptonite locks, but I feel like (since they are advertised and praised) people looking to steal bikes are more aware and prepared for their existence. I then end up falling into this loop of "this lock is popular, so people are probably able to recognise and break them", and "this lock isn't popular enough, does that mean it's shoddy design?"

Both can be picked open, don't trust using any lock in New York City, just bring your bike with you. In that city, a bike that isn't attended for 3 hours is good as gone.

Most bike theives don't use lock pick sets and especially a $45 tool that LPL and Bosnian Bill designed. They use an angle grinder, or a can of butane and a hammer to destroy the lock and it only takes a couple minutes if that.

So, I was watching a movie the other day where a woman was kidnapped and put in a locked room. I was looking at the lock and thinking how to pick it. Given she was being held prisoner in a house, I imagine that the lock isn't much more complicated than the one in our bathroom, which means she could probably have picked it with a butter knife. Her captor did not give her a butter knife, which is unfortunate, but she did have a spoon and salad dressing, and smart enough to undo the bolts that hold the door on the frame so... there is that. Still, this is evidence I have watched too much LPL videos, when I'm watching a movie and going "Pssssh.. give me a butter knife, I'll be out of there in no time."

I never get these kind of locks, topical american it seems. The problem is that when you secure the bike with the lock, people will just pick up the bike, move it somewhere and get it open. Then you might think locking it at a fence or something is an good idea, actually no, the thief simply can use the bike as leverage. They don't even need tools.

It's funny, I went to the bike store and I was going to buy one and the guy was like, I have to be honest, those are easy to pick, you can youtube it. Some guy picks them all day long, he's a lawyer. You might as well get the Abus, I think he recommended that one instead and I use it myself. So I bought the Abus instead. I searched youtube and I found your video on it and now this one LOL. I know exactly who he was talking about. Wow!

I've been putting the lock opening in a tought spot that even putting the key in is hard. so pretty sure this lock is not always pickable if there is no access around the whole to use the tool. so pretty much people need to break the mechanical structure of the lock, so it'll work good if i simply put the opening in a tought spot :)

I just checked the article and they have updated it to no longer call these locks unpickable, but rather “...should foil all but the most savvy criminal using specialty tools.”

ABUS are better for a few reasons, the standard D shackle is slightly longer, they are as strong but lighter! They don’t rust for years and years.They do not rattle on the frame mount. but kryptonite fail on tese points, but they do look very good. ABUS are a bit more expensive.

i've owned both by the way, the new york lock is great but if you have owned both for a few years like i have and left them out in all weather conditions, you will know what i am taking about. With the new York lock it is best to be kept under cover. ABUS can be left outside for years and only need a little oil once a year if that. A grinder will get through both,of course.
grndzro 20 napja
Considering how long it took LPL to defeat these with a custom tool I would be fairly confident in picking either one of these.

Well yes, they are relatively easy to pick with the right tool. The tool that you and Bosnian Bill developed together and publicise. I, for one, do not miss the irony in that. EDIT… reading down the comments, the irony is not lost on many others either.

Love your videos and agree. But could you try do it on a bike that is actually locked, between other bikes (limited space) by the side of a busy road? The way I think about bike locks is to always park next to someone with a worse lock than mine, and try not to leave room to slip jack into it to bust it open
michaelrowave 25 napja
If you making and selling the only pick for these locks aren’t you profiting from other people loss? Spoken as victim off a picked unlock who lost invaluable bike.

I have a feeling these are thinly veiled “how to steal a bike” videos.... 🤔 Since he’s also supposedly a lawyer, the videos are presented cunningly enough to not be flagged as thieving tutorials or links to his self developed lock picks. I could be wrong... Anyhow, I hope Kryptonite sees this and gets their act together, because there’s a special place in hell for bike thieves. 🤬

I love and hate these videos. I bought an ebike and immediately started looking for recommendations for a good lock on HUrun. I came across the LPL and it seems like there is not any good locks, I don’t think he has ever not been able to pick a lock. So 2 years later I still have not bought a lock, and when I ride I never leave the bike anywhere. Thanks LPL!

Erebus-RVN 29 napja
As much as I hate the fact that he's selling these tools he made, the lock makers out there are saying their lock is unpickable and to prove them wrong. So of course if you don't have the tool for the job why not make one and show the lock companies that their design is still flawed. Like he said, just because you don't have the correct tool to fix your car it doesn't mean your car is unfixable it just means you need the right tool for the job. Of you don't have one, make one
Choose A New Name
Security through obscurity is not security. These tools existed for years, or variants of them. They are basically 0-day style tools. This knowledge was once a fairly small circle of people in industry and government who used it for their ends. All that’s happened is this information is now available to you, and you can better protect yourself from it. The exploits were being used, are being used. People knowing them doesn’t make you less secure. It makes you less ignorant.

Thanks for the tutorial, I stole about 13 bikes using this video as a guide and made really good money both selling the locks and the bikes. Since then I have quit my job and became a professional bike thief making about 130k a year.
Dies1r4e Hónapja
I mean, if you happen to have a fifty dollar tool and a skilled lock picker, sure, but the average bike thief does not have 50 bucks to spend or a year to sharpen their skills let alone the thousands of man hours you do LPL. one of my best friends is a cop in an urban center and just retired, said in 40 years he had only rarely seen locks picked at all, maybe a dozen times (mostly people just forced entry or cut through things) and he had never seen anyone attack disc detainer locks or any type of "fancy" lock (requiring special tools or that couldn't be easily bypassed). Long and short a ramset or an angle grinder are far cheaper, easier to use, and faster then picking these sorts of locks in a practical setting.

It has to be asked why two expert lock pickers invented and marketed a tool that less expert pickers can use? I would much rather see you and Bosnian Bill design a lock that is near impossible to pick and market that.

I like this guy: In a roundabout way he tells other lockpickers, they should buy his lockpick, to be wellrounded, then he tells bicycle thieves that they need to buy his lockpick, which could lead to more work for him as a lawyer (if he does criminal law) and finally he implys that the lock producing company should hire him to consult on how to make better locks, and he is nice about it.
