Video: "Unpickable" Forever Lock is picked
Video shows lock being breached with a bump key
The Forever Lock ‘unpickable’ bike lock: someone has stuck a video up on YouTube apparently showing them picking it.
We showed you the Forever Lock a few weeks ago. The reason that the lock is described as unpickable is that you can't see the keyhole or easily access it because it is hidden internally.
Here’s the original video.
We said at the time, “Of course, saying that it’s impossible to pick this lock is just asking for someone to come along and prove you wrong.”
And whaddya know? Someone has apparently done just that.
The man in question has made a bump key to pick the lock. A thief would obviously need a certain amount of time and knowledge to do this.
In truth, the ability to pick a bike lock is a bit of a red herring because the vast majority of bike thefts rely on breaking the lock by force rather than picking.
