Non pickable lock

by Mac McKenzie
(San Diego, CA, USA)

When I was in High School, a friend of mine had a padlock on his locker that had a typical appearance.

The kicker was that no key inserted into the keyway would work. The lock opened by pushing the nameplate from left to right.

A shim would probably have worked, but he would insert a key and pretend he was opening it as he pressed the nameplate.

Anyone ever hear of this and if so could I still get one?

crew locksmith NEW
by: Shreyl

A lock is designed to keep crime out, but sometimes these devices actually lure criminals inside. It has happened to just about everyone that they locked themselves out of their car, home or workplace and not everyone carries a set of spare keys so then the only way out is to call a locksmith, who will come and unlock the doors for a certain fee. All of this is simple enough, the problem occurs when the locksmith is a phony one.

Before proceeding to explore the sort of training that one needs in order to become a forensic locksmith, it would be essential for us to have a brief overview on whom the forensic locksmith is, and what he is involved in on a day to day basis. This we would be doing out of appreciation for the fact that many people are unfamiliar with these professionals, and it wouldn't be altogether far-fetched to speculate that some of us may be encountering the term 'forensic locksmith' for the very first time in this discussion.

Most Locksmiths provide a variety of services ranging from roadside emergency auto lock outs to full sock security systems for large commercial buildings. However in the majority of cases the average person will only consider calling a locksmith when they have locked themselves out of their house or car.

I think the lock is not up for sale anywhere. This is somewhat considered to be antique. Well, I don’t know if it is just senior housing portland oregon here in my place, but it is nowhere to be found. Well, I will try to get one and let you know if I succeed.

impossible NEW
by: Gerald

I do not think there is something called a non-pickable lock. If it can be made by a brilliant mind, so can a much more genius of a mind remove it too. Just that no one has never done it till now does not mean no one ever will. windows help and support

I would assume that the key was used to set pins and the sliding of the nameplate is the equivalent of the "turn." Since you could use the slide for tension, you could probably easily pick the lock, though, because it is a rare lock, I'd say beware of security pins.
