  • This is the lock picking lawyer, and what I have for you today is this Vero Padlock.

  • It's the Model 554 CP 7 45 But in particular, I want to talk about one of its most prominent features, and that is the plastic shackle guard.

  • It's something I'm starting to see more and more often.

  • In fact, in just a minute of searching through my collection, I found several of thumb, and I have mixed feelings about this now.

  • Obviously, if the choice is between a metal shackle guard and a plastic one, I'm almost always going to go for the metal one.

  • The exceptions.

  • Air Nish uses things like non spark environments or applications where avoiding scratches is more important than security.

  • But if your choice is between a plastic shackle guard, which I don't particularly like and no shackle, guard it all.

  • I have to admit that there are some advantages.

  • For example, they can make it more difficult to shin the padlock.

  • In fact, every single one of these could easily be shamed.

  • Were it not for the plastic shackle guard.

  • It may also make it more difficult to position bolt cutters around the shackle, and it may be enough that it just looks be fear and a thief passes it in favor of a softer target.

  • So while I don't like this trend, they do have some limited advantages that we should be very careful not to think they compare to their metal counterparts.

  • Okay, let's turn our attention back to this little Vero and see what it takes to pick it open, if for no other reason than we really need picking in every video.

  • So we have what looks to be a master lock style Qiwei.

  • So I'm using top of the key way tension with a 40,000 stick pry bar in a standard hook in 18 thousands.

  • Nothing on 123 for okay.

  • Five is binding.

  • We probably buying from back to front.

  • So let's work our way forward.

  • Click out of four click out of three quick out of two quick out of one and we are open.

  • So it felt like five standard pins and something that probably wouldn't give much pause to even a novice picker.

  • In any case, that's all I have for you today if you do it.

  • Any questions or comments about this.

  • Please put them below.
