Кристиян Александров : lockpicking lawyer gives us another valuable lesson. for those of you who ask why you show thieves how to steal, he does not. theves know how to steal without this video. What lockpicking lawyer is doing is show us what we are vulnerable to, and how they attack us, so we know how to defend ourself and so we know what to protect ourselfs from.

April Jones : I used a non tsa approved lock on my suitcase once, and the TSA broke my lock for a “random inspection.” They also folded all my clothes lol

Wazzuuup GD : I bought a cheap 4 pack of travel locks that DIDN'T have the sticker on them, tried to pick one, when I turned the tension wrench it opened the lock

Da Hai Zhu : More security theater

Timmy Brolin : Why are TSA master keys available on the internet? Because TSA leaked the dimensions! They published a photo of the master keys in an article online. And these people are the ones that supposedly guarantee security at airports...

LTManiac : Ohh as soon as i saw those locks i knew this was gonna be a brutally honest & savage video 🤔🤔😂

Hunter Davis : This channel makes me want to use an arc welder as a lock

Stormborn Apostle : Masterlock still offers more protection than the TSA itself does.

No Remorse : I used to use TSA locks on my work tool kit when I traveled, but my luggage kept arriving with the lock missing, so I gave up and just put a spring-loaded steel snap link through the hasp on the toolkit to help keep it from popping open. One time I tried a key-retaining TSA lock. When I retrieved my toolkit at my destination, I found the remains of the lock inside the case, tied up in a rubber glove. TSA moron apparently thought his key was trapped in the lock and busted it apart.

LS : This is good, but also keep in mind, luggage, gym bags, suitcases, backpacks, etc, with plastic-track zippers can all be opened with nothing more than a ballpoint pen, or some other somewhat sharp object. Perhaps even a door key. The thief can take what they want. Or leave items. And shuffle the zipper pull over the open track and heal it back to sealed status and leave no evidence behind. They also don't need to carry any items that look like lock picks or entry tools, as many common objects will work fine. Basically, there is no security. It's all theater. Even the metal detector lines are theater.

BourbonWarrior : I'm going to save this video and show it to people that think "master keys" are a good idea for encryption.

asv : I mean, with people like you around who's basically a living master key, nothing is safe...

bdf2718 : To quote from the book _Alice in Security Theatre Land_ - "pick me."

NYPANAMA : I've been watching your videos for a while now, and I have to ask. Have you ever found a lock that you COULD NOT pick? This includes padlocks, and door locks.

soundspark : Luggage, the one thing it is illegal to secure...

ck m : I use zip ties on my luggage - TSA will replace them if they open them. I keep a nail trimmer in my carryon to open my bags at destination.

Olivia Lambert : It is absolutely absurd to me that they thought a widely selling lock wouldn't be taken apart and have the key reverse engineered. Why nobody suggested such when they were creating the law is beyond me, but it speaks volumes for the incompetence of the lawmakers. As suggested this lock is nothing more than a piece of string to prevent accidental entry only.

13% makes 50% : Should have titled this video the "TSA PSA"

Skulptur Lamm29 : I prefer zip ties on my luggage. They are pretty much as secure, but I see if my luggage was opened the moment I take it of the carousel. This way I can check if anything is missing or was added before I leave the terminal / go through customs.

MPAH1981 : Thanks for the heads up. I've been locking up my Ferarri with one.

Shaun Dreclin : A great visual demonstration of why encryption backdoors are a terrible idea

Tom Webb : You don't need a key, nor even picks. I've got a combination TSA lock built in to a suitcase (it prevents the "pen" opening trick). TSA opened my bag, and didn't re lock the TSA lock, which meant no combination was required to open the lock - it opened regardless of the code inputted. To resecure the lock I used a floss pick - jammed the pointed end into the keyway and turned - it locked the bag and it meant only my combination opened it. Unless, of course, someone else had the super difficult to get hold of floss pick... 🙄

Earl James : Simple solution is never check a bag. I’ve travelled extensively, sometimes for weeks at a time. Use FedEx, UPS or DHL for excess personal items or souvenirs. BONUS: It’s often cheaper than the baggage fee from the airlines!

BasedShark : I actually purchased some travel locks in the US, I believe from Target. It actually included the tsa master key in the package. Didn't just look like one, it was an exact copy.

ZaqoccProductions : LPL’s savagery meter - 💯

star doomer : This is the lockpickinglawyer and i have the best voice ever

Ivo Stoyanov : I have one of these, it opened the moment I inserted my pick in it. And you don't even need a pick, the gaps on the combination cylinders are so wide you can see the gates.

Picked It : Oh dear I remember one of bosnianbill's vids how it was easy to get in a suitcase and zip it back up without touching the lock 🤐

tuckerton296 : I've yet to see a lock that can defeat a battery powered angle grinder.

PapaWheelie : Series suggestion - many bridges in large cities have bridges covered with locks right next to signs that say it is illegal to place locks on bridge. You could pick and remove as many as you could as a public service. I just went over the Brooklyn bridge and saw some higher end ones along with tons of cheap ones.

rootbeer666 : Heard so many stories of TSA cutting and breaking TSA locks...

Cory Goodman : I disagree; these would be perfect in a sting operation to catch one who steals peoples belongings :p

ScytheNoire : My underwear! They aren't secure!

jezzermeii : May I ask why these 'TSA' locks exist? I am from the United Kingdom, so I haven't come across these before. Thanks to anyone who can help! :)

danar dalin : So if the master key is so different from the profile of the actual keys... how do they work? And how do master keys in general work?

Alex : Remember to travel with guns and thereby having to use you own locks instead.

Darren Harvey : Any chance you would do a video on how master keys work? Specifically where you have have lock A that opens with key A and lock B that opens with key B but both can be opened with a master key where the master key bears no resemblance to the locks "proper" key. Multiple shear lines or something - in any case, would be nice to see some of these gutted.

Grant Thomas : I'd rather see a cut lock if tsa had to open my bag, so I filled the keyhole with glue. This way no people with keys who aren't tsa cannot open my bag without damage, and I rarely fly.

fuzz : What does lockpickinglawyer lock his luggage with?

STUPID TABLET : Fuxk me.. and TSA has an abysmal record of allowing weapons to pass during stress tests. What a fraud of an agency built on a federal lie.

Robert M : don't even use them on luggage fly with firearms and use Abloy protect 2s

John Wang : now ramset them >:D

Orlando Morris-Johnson : I met one of the guys who got the images of the masters keys at a conference a week a go. No, hey wasn't a criminal, great guy. Hacker, Lockpicker etc -stay secure

Richard Purves : Deviant Ollam's talks at DEFcon and other places are always worth it on picking and TSA security. I'd still like to see anyone get a hold of TSA #006 and deal with it because you only get it on Rimowa luggage ;)

D Hawthorne : I like that key retaining one. I've had my duffel come through the baggage claim without the locks. What I'd like to see more is a TSA lock that can also be locked to the bag my thought is one where you thread one side of a removable shackle or cable through the single eyelet and that one can only come out of the lock housing with the combination. The other side loops though the double eyelet on the opposing zipper and reconnects to the lock but can be removed by either the combination or the TSA master key. Doubly so, for a little more bulk it would be nice to see a double cylinder lock that requires at least 2 different master keys to open. I would still never trust a lock that can be ripped off with your bare hands to secure anything other than luggage, but being more secure is never a bad thing.

Irongrip62 : Don't use TSA locks on your luggage either. Instead carry a gun in your luggage. By law you will be required to have a hard metal case and explicitly you must secure it with a lock that is NOT a TSA master lock. You will be required to disclose the weapon inside and show it upon request but that's about it.

Rex Luminus : Great vid. Thank you.

Juergen Nieveler : I 3D-printed a TSA007 using (rather soft and bendable) PLA... It still works fine on a TSA-approved padlock

《THUMPER》 Lock Picking : Great video brother, great info Mr.L.P.P.
