    Hey I just picked 3 of these that I had lying around, for some reason I had extra difficulty with one, and after successfully picking it, I could no longer insert the key. The pins were loose and would just fall out of and into their resting place when I turned the lock upside down and right side up.

    Is the lock totally broken or is there a remedy to this? Any help would be much appreciated

    These gun locks aren’t supposed to actually work. They’re supposed to be as cheap as possible to fulfill the legal requirement that the gun come with a lock without greatly increasing the cost of buying the gun.

    so much of that flexible cable is exposed and seems very vulnerable to destructive attacks, i wouldn’t trust it for that reason alone…. ontop of which, i think i’ve seen several long shackle "bike locks" that would be way more suited for the task than this…..

    all that being said, it’s slightly better than nothing, which is something, though not the thing that really matters….

    it really sucks that no company has taken gun locks as seriously as they need to be. hell, you can get floor liners for your car that are custom made for your make and model, but protecting against an unauthorized use of a firearm, where more than the carpet of your vehicle could be at stake….. is frankly appauling….

    If being able to lock a gun is a requirement, I’m surprised gun makers don’t just put a hole somewhere to put a padlock through, for instance to lock the slide in place.

  5. Laird Cummings on November 30, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    Still tougher than a Master #3.

  6. Domino52o on November 30, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    You should upgrade to the lcp2 friend, it’s better in every way

  7. Brews and Pews on November 30, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    I did my first time pick on one of these today using a paperclip!

  8. J D on November 30, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    My only concern for your reviews is that while I’m sure you’re aware of this, I feel as if you rank these as if everyone has a beginners knowledge of lock opening.

  9. johntcc1 on November 30, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    I was able to pick my cable lock with relatively little effort and I am not yet skilled enough to open most locks consistently. Still practicing though. 😎

    I have a Beretta lock, unless the kid has access to a lock pick, he ain’t getting in. I mean actual tools. I tried all sorts of household items and there wasn’t enough clearance for the keyway. I tried bumping it, didn’t work, tried forcing it with a flathead, didn’t work, tried a nail file didn’t work, a bobby pin and I found a shower hook to use as a tension wrench, not enough h clearance. The bobby pin simply can’t do the job unless you precisely bend the tip, multi tool, seemstress type pin, I fashioned a rake out of the stiffest wire that would fit. Nada, the only way I actually got in was with actual tools. No way is a kid getting in unless they have a little knowledge and a pick. I couldn’t do it nondestructively and at that point I’d say it’s good enough. If a kid has the time to sit there with a gun for an hour or so or can go to the garage to get bolt cutters or whatever without supervision, there are bigger isues. Realistically, that lock is way more than good enough to keep an average child out and I’d say pretty much any child that hasn’t practiced lock picking wouldn’t get in, unless there was a complete and total lack of parenting. Teach kids to be safe with guns and if you own them teach your kids, if they know, they aren’t interested or know the dangers they are less likely to try in the first place.

    Not fit against an inquisitive adolescent…

    Me – a determined adult – struggling for over an hour to get mine open because I lost the key: 😅👍

    Update: finally managed to get it open

  12. Real Life on November 30, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    That gun lock is just one more "feel good law"

  13. Brian Masson on November 30, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    Why not use a padlock with a long hardened steel shackle that’s coated in plastic or rubber?

  14. Goetz Liedtke on November 30, 2021 at 7:17 pm

    Grip, not handle.

  15. killgora1 on November 30, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    Honestly I would use one of these to keep say a suicidal adolescence out anyways. It really would be better to hide, or better yet lock the thing up in something really hard to get into. But I get the point of this video. It demonstrates the locks flaws so you can properly decide the best action. Honestly I like these locks. They are not amazing by any means, but they are convenient, found everywhere, comes with most firearms purchased, and should keep most children from messing with it. Not perfect, but still usable in the right situations.

  16. Paul Dukich on November 30, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    All because of the stupid law that makes it a requirement to include them with every gun… Just another pet project for the politicians.

  17. PINKFLOPPYASS on November 30, 2021 at 7:19 pm

    Inquistive adolescents, the arch enemy of gun locks

  18. Yohonn Westbrooks on November 30, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    Tbh if a young kid knows how to pick the lock he is headed down the wrong path to begin with and there nothing you can do to prevent his own destruction

  19. TheFireIsOnFire on November 30, 2021 at 7:22 pm

    I use this for my ruger mini 30 simply because ny law requires that a gun be locked when transporting it (even to the range).

  20. FeroxCious on November 30, 2021 at 7:23 pm

    Scrutinising toddles: Adequate
    Examining preteens: Adequate
    Lethargic and unentrepreneurial adolescents: Adequate
    Inquisitive adolescents: Not up to its role

  21. Michael Carnes on November 30, 2021 at 7:24 pm

    Must be made by Masterlock!

  22. iamdarkyoshi on November 30, 2021 at 7:25 pm

    While this lock is fairly easy to get in to, its going to stop a hell of a lot more people than no lock at all

  23. z1z2z3z4z1z2 on November 30, 2021 at 7:26 pm

    i supose i shouldnt show my 2 year old how to rake padlocks?

  24. Michael Hearmon on November 30, 2021 at 7:27 pm

    Newbie question here, what do you mean when you say binding?

  25. Colton smyth on November 30, 2021 at 7:28 pm

    Your voice is pretty calming it helps me fall asleep so thanks for giving me interesting videos along with helping me fall asleep

  26. M n on November 30, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    I am positive that lock would’ve stopped me when I was a kid

  27. Mr. Mercury on November 30, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    Gun companies only include these locks because they have to. I personally am grateful that they go with the cheapest option possible so they don’t jack up the price of my gun.

  28. SSU on November 30, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    I dont get why people complain about a bad lock like this, 99% of the time its easier to just find the key. You know the key safely stored 2inches from the gun!

  29. DuesenbergJ on November 30, 2021 at 7:30 pm

    Got a Ruger lock with my 10/22. It’s about as easy to open with a paper clip as with the key

  30. Josh B on November 30, 2021 at 7:32 pm

    Yeah pretty much every standard "gun lock" I’ve ever seen is file cabinet easy to pick :D.

  31. zinc_magnesium on November 30, 2021 at 7:33 pm

    30 mm shackle? I think not buddy

  32. demented bowine on November 30, 2021 at 7:34 pm

    how is that the top of the key way ?

  33. David Grover on November 30, 2021 at 7:34 pm

    Just a point I should have brought up before. Any lock that forces you to store the gun with the springs in a compressed position is bad for the gun.

  34. Sprockettfuel on November 30, 2021 at 7:35 pm

    My Ruger came with something very similar. Mine has sort of fins on either side of the key way and also mine does not lock without turning the key again like how a typical lock allows the shackle to simply click into the locked position. Wondering if that’s supposed to be an “upgrade”
    I was going to try picking myself but since I misplaced the key, I can’t actually lock the thing. (My firearm is in its own locked safe and I knew from being your subscriber the lock it came with was only gonna scratch the hell out of the anodized slide)

  35. Youngg Godd on November 30, 2021 at 7:35 pm

    I see alot of people put it through the barrel

  36. bowzerdude5646 on November 30, 2021 at 7:35 pm

    The way you tension the lock makes it look like there are spools!

  37. Judge has the Word on November 30, 2021 at 7:36 pm

    Every new gun i buy if it comes with a new lock i never use the locks at all. I use my save. It is a lot better . I have always say if someone brakes in my house they wont get into the gun save. #1 my house alarm is wired into it, #2 if you think you can pick it up good luck.The Locks are made to keep your kids safe.

  38. Mike Pearce on November 30, 2021 at 7:36 pm

    Funnily enough the first lock that I SPP’d was the Ruger lock that I got with my 10-22. The lock supplied with my Winchester 1300, was tougher & seems to have at least one spool in it.

  39. Antony on November 30, 2021 at 7:37 pm

    This one is not as bad as other gun locks. LPL actually needed to pick it instead of racking open.

  40. Ez-Bze on November 30, 2021 at 7:37 pm

    I Can Not open my xd cable lock to Save my life,glad i have the key,(i opened my practie lock about 3x today and my hillman ok though)Anyone have any ideas?

  41. k b on November 30, 2021 at 7:37 pm

    can we get the ramset remix? haha… i love that ramset series

  42. Michael Densmore on November 30, 2021 at 7:38 pm

    If a child can access your firearm you’ve not done your job as a gun owner.

  43. Neopazen on November 30, 2021 at 7:40 pm

    Been watching your videos for a while, and decided to try my luck at picking. I have this exact lock in my house, and decided to try it (before seeing this video) I didn’t have any tools, so used two paper clips, and was able to pick it open in a minute or two. First ever lock picked! Then you tell me it wouldn’t stop a curious adolescent… gee thanks.

  44. Daniel Roglich on November 30, 2021 at 7:41 pm

    Another one bites the dust, great review brother, thanks for sharing it!

  45. Michael Linner on November 30, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    The cheapness and crappiness of the lock demonstrates the gun manufacturer’s disdain for the regulations. They know as well as the Lock Picking Lawyer that any determined criminal will easily get it open.

  46. Peter M on November 30, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    This lock is beneath you….please!

  47. The Oiulkj on November 30, 2021 at 7:45 pm

    To be fair, is you disable your gun with this thing, you might as well have not purchased it in the first place. If you really must make your gun child safe , take the slide off. Then, give the slide to one of your children, and the rest of the gun to another. By the time they stop fighting enough to be able to work together and reassemble the gun, they will have already graduated from college and become [s]responsible[/s] legal adults.

  48. joseph crosby mecham on November 30, 2021 at 7:46 pm

    I might be slow on the uptake but I think I just figured out what you do when you’re not YouTubing.
    I’ll keep it to myself until such time as there’s occasion to DM.
    Thank you again.

  49. bbotelhoHI on November 30, 2021 at 7:47 pm

    I lost the key to one of my locks like that. Simply cut the cable in between one of the lobes with side cutters

  50. Smoke 003723 on November 30, 2021 at 7:48 pm

    So you thread the shakle through the action and the clip….
    Why can’t you just shackle the trigger?! Thread it behind the trigger and it can’t be fired!
