I am looking for small keyed padlocks, around 20mm bodies, but up to 30mm could be acceptable. This is for reviews and my personal lock picking goals. 

I prefer new locks which are commercially available. The locks do not need to be particularly good or recommended, just available. I plan on picking, bypassing, and potentially reviewing the lock. 

I've gotten a few already, such as the Master Lock 120 series, but if one knows of any locks which fit the requirements, I'd appreciate the information.

How about this one http://www.alibaba.c...k_20mm.html?s=p

 

I do not know if they sell it in retail but normally they would if you contact them to buy a few.

You can find good padlocks like that on ebay. You can choose from several buyers.

I think the best bet is to buy the biggest possible padlock for your particular needs. The bigger the better unless it cant fit in a certain space.

The link in alibaba is for a combination lock. If you want some pad locks for sale that are close to your liking then you might want to try out Ace Hackware too. They sell bump keys for sure but I remember seeing some pad locks there too. Good luck.

About this small pad locks. How's bumping on smaller pad locks? is it the smaller the harder it is to be bumped? Am I right?

The bump key that would be used for a small padlock is probably different from a regular bump key because it will have different mechanism and the size of course. however you can still bump it. or use a different method. :) :)

i am thinking bout how tiny would the valleys and teeth of the bump key would be if the padlock is so little that it must be harder to bump them up. Filing a small key would be hard as well.

it must be a cute little bump key. I never seen something like that. maybe there's someone in this forum who can explain about it further.

I have seen tiny locks having horizontal, parallel round pins, well i think making a bump key for such locks is relatively easy, a good drill can prove handy

Right so little that I wonder if bumping it would be possible or maybe actually very easy. I don't know :-) yeah I hope someone who had it tried will response. Im thinking of buying small padlocks.

And that's a video of a home made bump key, too.  It's not like the person in the video bought a key and then modified it... they straight up crafted a 'key' out of a piece of metal. 

 

Not sure if I'd call that a 'bump key' or not simply because, well, it's not a key!  =)

although I agree that it is not a key, that was really cool...It's like a combination of lock bumping and lock picking...

Well i think the lock can't be reused after some attempts if  bumped by that thing, ohmy.png, quite a rough method i suppose,

Right.. If you intend to not using the lock again anymore then that will be fine. A waste though
