  • This is the lock picking lawyer, and what I have for you today is Amazon's choice.

  • When one searches for a safe and unsurprisingly, it just so happens that the brand name is Amazon basics.

  • It lists on Amazon 4 $57 though it's currently on sale for 42.

  • And just in case you were wondering, I declined when Amazon offered me quote expert installation, which would have cost an extra 200.

  • Unfortunately, this product is among the worst of the worst because it can be opened in just a few moments using a tool which, ironically, you can also buy on Amazon.

  • Now there are at least three major design flaws with this product, but today we're going to focus on one the mechanical backup cylinder, which is right behind this panel.

  • So let's pry that off.

  • It's very easy to take off, and there is a tubular core.

  • Let me show you how it works.

  • We turned the key to the right that allows this knob to turn and then the safe will open.

  • We're locked up again.

  • Unfortunately, this tubular core has a design flaw that's been known to security professionals for decades.

  • The lock has equal length driver pins and equal strength springs.

  • That means it could be impression very quickly, using a tool like this.

  • And while this may look like something that's unusual or rare, it's readily available on Amazon.

  • Just $18 for a set of three.

  • So let's see just how easy it is to use just that fast.

  • We got this open.

  • So as you can see, this is not a product that anyone should consider secure.

  • It does, however, have one excellent use.

  • It would make a great decoys safe.

  • What I mean by that is you should leave it in the corner of your room, filled with a stack of old newspapers and maybe a small bag of rusty nails that may just keep a thief occupied such that your true valuables go unnoticed.

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

  • If you do have any questions or comments about this, please put them below.

  • And, as always, have a nice day.
