Pick-Proof Locks

Q. Do I need a pick-proof padlock?

A. Few thieves are skilled enough or willing to take the time to pick a padlock. Since they don’t care about damage, thieves usually hammer, pry, or cut locks rather than trying to pick them.
If you are seriously concerned about picking, look for a lock featuring “spool” or “mushroom” pins. These locks, while not unpickable, make picking much harder.
