  • This is the lock picking lawyer, and what I have for you today is the R L 21 round lock.

  • This one is branded by Lockett dot com, so I believe it's made by a UK company called Prognosis.

  • It's a bar bell shaped padlock that's designed for securing chains up to 16 millimeters in diameter, so they also sell a version that will handle 19 millimeter chains Now.

  • The main advantage to this design is that it is very resistant to common fruit force attacks.

  • Once a chain is secured in between the two halves, the shackle is no longer exposed, making most cutting and grinding attacks far more difficult.

  • And because the two halves can freely rotate while locked, that means most twisting attacks will not work either.

  • So because of this unique design, I think this lock's going to pack a resistance to brute force similar to many locks 2 to 3 times its size and weight.

  • Now, holding those two halves together is a ball bearing locking mechanism.

  • That mechanism cannot be shamed or bypassed, and securing everything is a disc detainer core.

  • There are seven discs in here.

  • Eight if you count the gated spinner, and it seems to tension from a rear or middle desk.

  • So let's see what it takes to pick this open.

  • But first, I am going to lock this on a chain.

  • This is a 15 millimetre chain with passed through links.

  • If you're going to be securing larger chains, you definitely will need one with links that pass through each other.

  • Now that this is secured in place, I'm going to rotate all of those disks as far clockwise as they will go.

  • Then I'm going to get the pick that Bosnia and Bill and I made Pick up disc number one, and then we're going to start picking on disk, too.

  • Okay, two is loose.

  • So is three.

  • So is four.

  • Nice click out of five.

  • Little click on six and seven is loose.

  • Probably a zero cut back to the beginning.

  • Click out of one.

  • I'm sorry.

  • That was, too.

  • Number three feels like it's any gate.

  • Nice click out of four little bit of movement on that core.

  • We probably have everything set but disc one, So let's go to disc number seven, which is a zero.

  • Cut attention off of seven counter rotate one and we got this open.

  • Okay?

  • So as you saw, that wasn't a terribly difficult pick.

  • We got into it pretty quickly, and I think the absence of false skates were a contributing factor.

  • It's something I would love to see the company ADT in the future.

  • And that would go a long way toward bringing the security level of the corps up to the rest of the lock, which is actually quite good.

  • 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.
