Is this lock “openable”? it was a lock with a broken shackle, I picked it twice very easily and once I removed the shackle I couldnt pick it anymore : Locksmith

context: sometime ago my parents lost the key and had to broken the lock to get out of home and used the broken lock to lock the door from inside, using only the shackle, then I picked it twice in like seconds, removed the broken shackle and let the broken shackle “locking” the door from inside, now, with no shackle, I cant pick it anymore

also, what is this “button” on the lock? I have 2 other locks from this brand and only this one have it

Made my first Chrysler key today. I picked the lock read the cuts, Cut the key and programmed it. With only 3 days of intense locksmith training with my grandad ! (Lishi tools) : Locksmith

Wait till you start using a twin lifter lishi, or even a 4 lifter if you happen to get the chance, like with a TOY48. The CY24 is the best lishi to start with because with Chrysler locks you can clearly feel when you are successfully picking the lock. Learning how to feel what’s going on inside the lock through the lifter is the key to using any lishi successfully, and Chrysler makes that very easy. Don’t get discouraged when you struggle with a twin arm lishi like the HU66 twin, the HU100, or the HU101, just keep working at it, and it will come to you. I’ve even seen some very experienced locksmiths struggle with single arm lishis, some locks just don’t cooperate.

Apparently gatehouse (or some “locksmith”) doesn’t know what macs are or why they’re important. I had a residential eviction today. Started picking and it took me longer than normal for these shitty locks. When I got the knob picked, I pulled it so I could just make a key and unlock the db. 76277 : Locksmith

I am not a locksmith, can someone explain to me why you don’t see cuts like this more often? Seems like it would be a whole lot more secure, adding that OP said it was hard to pick. Every house key I’ve had rarely had cuts with depths that differed more than 1-2 – In other words I’ve always felt my homes would be incredibly easy to bump-key or pick
