Top customer reviews
This only has 4 pins. This gives rakes (the most common lock pick) a great chance of opening it. Master's sloppy manufacturing means that they have bad tolerances, which means raking (and picking) is even easier.
So if you're not worried about lock pickers, it can be picked even easier, it can be bypassed numerous ways. First, the most damning, is that you can stick a knife bypass tool (basically just a really thin knife) into the key way, turn something at the back of the cylinder, and it opens without a key, in 1-2 seconds. You can easily find this on Youtube. Second, I can't say from experience, but knowing that it's a Master, it can probably be shimmed, which is just a common padlock bypass, and due to Master's bad tolerances, I'd be shocked if it wasn't shimmable.
Now consider the fact that most novice lockpickers could get into it in under 10 seconds, let's consider physical traits, since that's the other way to gain entry. a 1/4 " padlock can probably be broken fairly easily with a wedge and a hammer or heavy object. Very easily with bolt cutters. So I'd say max 5-10 sec for destructive entry. However what it does have going for it are 2 things:
1. One of the security pins is a spool pin. This adds a tiny bit of security. Most Master locks use only standard pins.
2. It looks like a lock. Most people would assume they can't get in, however it only takes 1 person to know and be willing to have your belongings stolen. It's gold and silver design looks sleek and pretty.
So if you paid for this lock, don't feel too bad, it has its place, just like any low security lock. If you're securing a lock box that holds maybe $50 of your belongings, and maybe at times $100 if you're feeling risky, then go for it. It's probably not worth buying a $15 lock for that. However if you're looking for a more secure lock, do your research, and most importantly, stay away from Master, and stay away from mass produced chinese locks. You get what you pay for is the moral of the lesson here.
I consider it low security because although it has one or more security pins to make it more difficult to pick, the Lock Wiki says it is an introductory lock that many "locksport" groups use to instruct beginners on how to defeat security pins. It is still more difficult than locks without such pins, and in general use you don't generally worry about people with lock picks anyway. In the $5 range, it is a clear winner.
There are locks with security many times better than these locks for only a small amount more money.
Here is my recommendation for this price range:
ABUS Titalium 64TI/50
It does a decent job of keeping things closed, and it's a deterent for the general population, however anyone who wants to take 15 seconds to try to pick it will find it pops open with little effort. Don't buy this lock to secure anything you aren't prepared to replace.
The bad: Anyone besides your kid brother will be able to pop this thing open within a few seconds. Even though it's nice to look at and feels solid, it can easily be picked and it is small enough to be cut.
Overall: It's a nice inexpensive deterrent lock to keep honest people honest. If someone wants to bypass this thing to get into your stuff, they can do it with ease. I'm still giving it 5 stars though because of the build quality and price combo.
However, this is pretty much the type of lock that you would expect from MasterLock. Definitely strong, solid, heavy. The lock tumbler is not particularly smooth and the keys are really flimsy. I haven't bent one, but it definitely wouldn't take much effort.
Overall, good deal for the money. I'll find good use for them even if it's not for my luggage.
