1905 Model 805 “Ironsides” Push Key Padlock
That shackle sure doesn't enter the body with much length... a good whack with a pistol butt would probably dislodge the nub of the shackle from the body of the lock. ... still better than Masterlock or any Chinese zinc core.
I have one of these. I found it in my grandfather's tools after he died close to 20 years ago. I don't have a key. Maybe now I can get it open!
LPL: "If you try to pick this in the traditional way..." 115-Year-Old Yale Padlock: I **AM** TRADITION!
Have one in my hand now. Found at my Grandfather. Pretty neat piece of history
Funny; I just bought one of these for practicing.
What if it constructed the way that pushing key way was not affect on shackle pushing (they are independent), would it make it significally harder to pick?
Looking pretty good for its age... this is from the "they dont make'em like they used to" era
I'm also only here to mention Master Lock.
Before watching the LPL my mind had only been blown once before when it comes to lockpicking and safe cracking and that was jeff sitar crack the safe quicker than I can accomplish most menial tasks but this mans knowledge of lockpicking I'd venture to say is nigh unparalleled in all seriousness you're like a lockpicking savant
That lock looks valuable. I wouldn't mind paying $200 for it.
I'll include free shipping if you pay me $200 for one. ;)
This just further reinforces the fact that the most important tool in a pickers arsenal is their knowledge of the lock.
Company: Hello I proudly present you the safest safe of all time, how we guarantee that this safe is unpick able is... LPL: ...3 is binding...
Stuff made here’s lock when will we see this!!
How tough is that brass shackle?
I worked in lock shop during high school in the early 70s. When those old Yales came in I would shim them from the front with a curved shim and a hook pick. After opening you could get the plug out and make a key easy.
Now what if you modified the mechanism so that the shackle is not connected to the core, but is instead held in by a detent that the core blocks. So pulling on the shackle does not tension the lock, then you recess the core behind a keyway plate. The proper key can still push the core in and the shackle can be opened (could spring load it), but tensioning the lock would require sticking something into the keyway to push against the back of the core and get in the way of your pick.
can you tell how you need to pick a lock by looking at the key?
The age of this lock makes me wonder for how long has lockpicking been a discipline?
Could have been aboard the Titanic.
A good case of security through obscurity.
The internal yugoslavian pivotally fancy because hacksaw seemingly harass apropos a parched hail. willing, living liver
So many years later... LPL finally found the key to get into Yale.
I wonder; would this idea of a pushable core be more secure on a door? You can't tension it by pulling in this situation.
Just look at all the little bits of styling. We are devolving as a society and the worst part of it all is society believes it is advancing.
Всем привет!!! Раньше делали упор на качество а сейчас на колличество. Привет с кубани.
I've had two of these for years and it never occurred to me to just pull the shackle for tension. Been sliding a shim in and then lifting the pins front to back, using the shim to keep them at the sheer line. This is much nicer xD
“So you pull on the shackle, I’m going to show you how that’s done: you pull on the shackle.”
I think I would like one.
Somehow better than current locks
The logo on the backside of the lock resembles the logo of an old Finnish bank ”Säästöpankkien Keskus-Osake-Pankki” (est. 1908) fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Säästöpankkien_Keskus-Osake-Pankki Perhaps this lock inspired them when designing their logo.
It seems like making a lock on this principle for something like a deadbolt (where you have to push) would be hard to pick especially if you made it visually identical to other generic deadbolt locks. Cheap gimmicky lock mechanisms that you can't tell appart from standard locks would likely be plenty sufficient for most people's needs today.
is there a lock you cannot pick

The lock is beautiful, almost like a piece of jewelry, in it's own way.
Old locks tend to be far superior in terms of time wasted on the attack, if only because they were made to be as slow to actually unlock as possible, like that old 4 key shrine lock. Modern lock companies are just very stupid in focusing the entire security on the smallest part instead of simpler other measures like a two or three lock latch for commercial properties, almost to the point of sabotage.
Still waiting for the unpickable lock video. At least there's plenty of great content in the meantime.
Cmon I dare a company to develop a lock called The Nose and say its unpickable
Anyone still wairing for the stuff made here lock?
Would this be a good door cilinder then? Since you wouldn't be able to pull (from the inside) or would it be just as simple with pushing from the outside?
Does this man even has a key for his house?
At this point I’m convinced when he walks near the lock section in stores all the locks open themselves out of fear.
I love the beauty of it's age, but, and, could really appreciate seeing this lock in a sparkling shiny chrome.
WHY DON'T YOU DESIGN A LOCK..... with all this knowledge, it would be unbreakable
Confusing the lock picker. Thats the key... or lock
This is a really interesting lock. I imagine the inner mechanism looks similar to a modern pin-tumbler lock, with springs, drivers, and key pins, however once those pins are set, the entire core is pushed inward instead of rotated. I wonder how easy this design would have been to manufacture compared to more modern mechanisms.
can you take it apart so we can see the internals?
Anybody wonder what kind of lock he actually uses on his house?
115 years ago! Wow, I wonder what locks were like the late 1800s... "from somewhere around 1905" Hmmm.... >___>
I have an idea! Double this lock!
That is beautiful lock
Are the materials better?
One question: If locked this to something with large enough diameter that your finger couldn't fit underneath the shackle, would that make this more difficult?
I wonder how many people watch the LPL for the wrong reasons?🤔
I have some old yale locks I haven't been able to pick....I wonder if they're a similar style
Oh shoot another 1 minute video
Why can't they make a mechanism that prevents individual pins from setting?
Oh!! I have one of those locks!! I had no idea it was that old. I guess it’s time to spend the rest of my night trying to pick it...
What happens to your channel when you’ve picked all the locks LPL?
Hey LPL! Would you like someone to edit your videos? I'm saying this cause I'm a Media Designer and I think there could be a rework on your channel :D Message me if you agree. If not, great content anyway.
LPL: If you pick it the wrong way will lead to HOURS of frustration Yale Locks: We did it yellers time to celebrate 🎉
Sometimes you just have to go back to older technology to fool the modern thief...somewhat similar to a manual transmission being a good theft deterrent these days ;-)
If I hear "a click on 1, ...." infront of my door, I might as well just open the door for them.
I doubt you would need to pick a padlock that isn't locked around anything. I respect your work but in this case it would be nice if you demonstrated providing tension if the lock is around something.
Wow did this lock just gave the lockpickinglawyer hours of frustration or did he just assume noob picklockers have hours of frustration with this lock?
when is the impossible lock from fellow youtuber coming?
115 years = 1906
almost looks as if you were to put a good, beefy plumbers helper on that you could twist it open as the pin on the shackle doesn't look that long.
Geeez, LPL is such an expert, now I'm eagerly waiting to see him pick Assassin's creed 3 door locks with his personal tools
I watch these and imagine that if the lock or device was sentient how disappointed in itself it would be having prevented an attack on itself for less than a few seconds (or sometimes a lot shorter). Poor little guys. Trying their best quite happy with themselves until LPL walks in to boss music.
Amazing to see old stuff
I once took 8 months on and off of practicing trying to ride a unicycle untill I finally could. So yah, now I I can do that
Aww, what a sweet chocolate of the locks :3
where is the unpickable lock from that other guy that makes fun of his wife??
Interesting to see this show up, because I bought a lock identical to this just the other day, with no key. Nice to see how to open so fast, lol.
Do you do voice over? You've got 'The voice'.
Still waiting for the unpickable lock
Security by obscurity.
I love how I found some guy saying this was the most unpickable lock in existance on the internet a few years back just for it to be one of the shorter videos on this channel.
What I have learned from all this is that most locks are there to keep honest people honest. It could also stop criminals without much skill or critical thinking skills. They might try sawing a lock for hours instead of taking out a screw for instance. For criminals who have high skill, the risk/reward of doing petty theft doesn't pay off. Instead, borrowing things undetected, maintaining access to things that are assumed protected and other covert things likey pay the bills. Otherwise resourcefulness could be put to a more profitable use. Making youtube videos, or working in a professional field like the law, information technology, or medicine. All in all this is really great entertainment, and I enjoy exposure to a whole new puzzle/problem solving area. That said
Here I am again to see,how can I do my next burglary... thank you lock picking lawyer for saving my day!!
So if you know what you are doing more secure the ML - if you don't know what you are doing WAY more secure then ML!
Would make a wonderful practice lock.
You need to show off all your tools of a lock Smith .
That took longer than some modern locks you've done. Lol
When will you pick the un-pickable lock?
I have one of these locks never realized how old it could be.
I have stopped watching your videos (since that Indian 4-key lock) until you get that unpickable lock from the geeky engineering major
i wonder if there are any locks that take him like 5 minutes to open?
All the dislikes were Harvard locks
Combine this with requiring the core to be turned and you might turn this into a two man, or 3 hand operation.
15k likes, 40 dislikes He has a dedicated fan base and I love it
Another one bites the dust
Is there a video where he doesen't manage to open it? Really curious
