All locks can be picked. Our goal is to challenge the picker under pressure to force other tactics and slow down or defeat the attack. Thanks to the locksport community, Commando’s commercial line of locks incorporate a paracentric keyway that challenges even the best locksmiths. All Commando locks are loaded with up to 10 high security pins to resist surreptitious entry (lock picking). In a pin tumbler lock, the cylinder is comprised of locking pins. Security pins have custom shapes to give the false impression that one has successfully manipulated the cylinder to an open position. More pins with shapes equals a tougher lock to pick. Anti-bump technology is standard in all of our locks. When the leading brands on the shelf have 0-5 security pins in their designs, we’re betting that the bad guys might just walk past your Commando Lock and move on to an easier target.
Commando Lock is extensively involved with the locksport community – to continually learn how to make our products more secure. To learn more about locksport, visit any of the leading forums online or with the search term, “Locksport” on YouTube. These forums include:
