The Forever Lock

For years people have been making locks and at the same time people have been learning how to pick them.  The idea of an “un-pickable” lock is like a button that says “Don’t touch this” for kids – except this one will have lock pickers going crazy.

Inserting the key into the “forever lock”


Video of the “Forever Lock” has been published on YouTube, the chap showing it off reckons he can sell them for around $140 US plus postage – and judging by the 700,000 plus views of the video in just a few short days, he might be in business.

It looks like any hoop lock you might use on a bicycle – except there’s no keyhole.  Well, not a visible one anyway.

Check it out – let me know in the comments – what do you think?

    I don’t like how this guy is trying to claim he got this from the manufacturer.. This lock IS available for regular sale – I BOUGHT ONE YEARS AGO! The guy who made the video is just buying these locks from the Taiwanese online shopping site PChome (where I do a lot of shopping) and then reselling at a higher cost.

    Every single lock he is selling on eBay he purchased from PChome and then reselling it at higher cost.

    I had this lock for a while already. You can get them below:
