      have a script on my phone that locks the modem/router for everything except the phone. When I started computing, I'd was in a dumb terminal wired to delta net at my high school. There were no home pics, no one could afford one

      1. Richard Schimelfenig

        the most basic model of an HP 3000 sold for $95,000

    2. Kyle Coolidge

      Gawt dammit dale you shut my internet off

    3. Roost3r OSRS

      Man can u imagine picking this back when it would of been used. you would feel like a master thief

    4. Erik S

      This is similar to the chicken-or-egg problem... "What was first? The chicken or the egg?" "You want to watch LPL videos, but you cant watch them until you see a LPL video on how to open the internet lock."

    5. Erik S

      Trying to call 911 in the 90's was like: "get the key from behind the stove!!! fast!!!"

    6. Poble

      that’s one of the most 90s things I’ve ever seen

    7. Irokutara Belmont


    8. Premulis

      Rusty Shackleford... Dammit Dale!

    9. jodgey4

      Is there a way to turn the lock back to the locked position without the key?... If as a child one left the lock in the "open" position with parents like mine, they'd notice I was up to trouble

    10. Delta V

      at 1:40 my whole body braced for a VPN ad

    11. Luke Salazar

      Also Jeffery Epstein didn't kill himself

    12. Alana Abstracts

      Unless your in a city or on a phone plan. Your using a wired modem connection that you can wifi off. So would still be handy. Lol

    13. No Name

      I never seen one

    14. Kintaro oe

      When my parents wanted to leave me without internet access they just took the modem with them to their job lol

      1. Pixel Puppy


    15. Aspwil

      You could open this with a fucking paperclip

    16. ShayDeeMan

      Nooo! Don't lock my internet!

    17. 郭宏宇

      Detach the plate and connect the wire. All you need is a screwdriver.

    18. Saad Dahmani

      where were you 25 years ago

    19. GradientGamer

      thats why my friends are not allowed to have picks

      The lock itself should still work with anything up to current ADSL lines, things are starting to change a bit now with a lot more fiberoptic going directly to homes as well as fixed wireless, but in general, assuming your kids or whoever else your trying to lock out of the internet doesn't just have a smartphone with 3g/4g/5g internet access, this would still work to some extent today, ignoring its security flaws obviously. Broadband over the last few decades hasn't really changed much on the home or even state infrastructure level, its all been using most of the same copper from dialup and regular phone connections, we've just learned how to use use that copper more effectively to transmit data at higher speeds, with that comes more sensitivity to things like interference, so its possible something like this lock could cause issues with a broadband connection, but based on some of the dodgy wiring jobs I've done on connections in a rush before, it'll probably still work fine.

    22. Chinny

      You'd think a little bit of plastic blocking the port would've been a good call...

    23. TheMidasCurse

      lmaooo rusty Shackleford? Dale Gribble strikes again!

    24. Jaster Mareel

      This is the ultimate VPN. I'm cancelling my Nord subscription and getting this!

    25. K1tsun

      My aunt had something similar, but for her home PC (because she does a lot of accounting from home). Without a key you couldn't start the PC

    26. Allan McCombs

      80's: Get off the internet, I need to call someone.

    27. Average Guy71

      When I was a kid, computers had external (300 baud) modems. Parents would just take the modem away.

    28. TecSanento

      I am waiting for a very special lock to be picked soon - it's the stuff brand. Does anyone know this?

    29. Ben Renner

      Haha dang ol Dale Gribble always has interesting stuff

    30. Dallas Stamm

      Rusty Shackelford!

    31. MrMironin

      Rusty Shackleford. Isn't that Dale Gribble's mortal enemy?

    32. David Williams

      Did I see a Microsoft logo ?

    33. drumsallday19

      rusty shackleford lmao

    34. Mark B

      Thanks for sharing

    35. TheTarrMan

      You used to have to pay by the minute for the internet. That is why someone might want this.

    36. Sean Jones

      😂 "Rusty Shakleford"? Sigh... Dammit Dale 🤣🤣

    37. The177Hunter

      Wonder how much it lags because of the wiring going through the lock

    38. Quinn C-L

      so this is why GE went downhill...

    39. Jeff Ferguson

      Further proof that electrical companies/electricians have no place in low-voltage or datacomm.

    40. No Memes 4 You

      almost three mil!!

    41. Edna Eden

      Am I the only one who still doesn't know what it is...anyone mind explaining what it is?

    42. Fuse

      Rusty Shackleford is the name Dale Gribble on King of the hill uses , lol. Rusty shackle ford is also a truck in new england

    43. stug45


    44. DanMartinParanormal

      Certified Worse Than Master Lock. Let me take a moment to dial-up this comment.......... ..... ...... ......... OK it's up.

    45. couchpotatoinc

      Real great when your kids are home alone and can’t dial 911. Good one, Karen.

    46. Scorched Earth

      Just unscrew the thing from the wall. Put a reed contact between the contacts of the lock, shortcutting the lock. Put it back on the wall. Put a magnet on a string, and put the magnet near the reed contact. This way the lock keeps locked, and internet works. When you hear the door when your parents come home, pull the string, en there's nothing to see.

    47. red birdy (Ze_Redbird31)

      thank you for unlocking the internet for me

    48. stephenacamille

      Most kids don't know how to use a screwdriver let alone how to pick or bridge connections.

    49. Ghost De Razgriz

      Of course he identifies as Rusty Shackleford

    50. Colin Marais

      In our house the pc was far from phone jack and when you wanted to dial up you unrolled a 5m cable from modem to phone jack. Parents trick was hiding the long cable. My trick was moving entire pc to next to phone jack and moving everything back before they got home. Also our 286 had one of those keyboard locks which all you had to do was open the lid and unplug. Parents locked and unlocked it not even knowing it was completely disconnected inside on the motherboard

    51. Silent Epsilon

      aah, the good old days when 80% of the population thought AOL was the internet.

    52. Eric Swanson

      This and other products like it, it makes me wonder why companies hate kids

    53. JESUS YESHUA EL ELYON elshadai Adon Ori haaretz

      Lol didn't know dale from king of the hill sent him that lol

    54. FlowerSec (SpaceJanitor)

      Pocket Sand...

    55. Julian “The Bunny Cultist”

      Wait, An *Internet Lock* ?

    56. skygh

      My fathers Rambler had a disc lock. That is all I will confirm at this time.

    57. Serge T

      Lock Picking Lawyer you absolutely didn't open the lock you turned on the internet. ;) 👍

    58. starbuxed

      This is to stop people from accidently picking up the phone and ruining you connection.

    59. Matt Z

      You... hacked the Internet

    60. Ola Magnus Lie

      That's a rad idea, dude!

    61. James Barnhart

      Hacker: picks lock “Alright. I’m in.”

    62. Wes Gale

      Big shout out to Dale Gribble for providing the lock!

    63. Gold Winger

      My grandfather had to put a lock on the house phone because my uncle would run up the phone bill calling girls. I could see using a lock like that, especially if you had people in your home (like my uncle) that you couldn't trust with a connection.

    64. Viddy O'James

      kids don't have lockpicks

    65. Meko Unknown

      I'd love to see him do the old computer case keyboard lock. It might stop him for 10 seconds or so

    66. Suraj Majumdar

      Just take away the lan cable from the port to moderm, simple 😜😜

    67. Secret_Armor

      *NOT A FLUKE*

    68. CB Plays

      heh...rusty shackleford

    69. Jon C

      Even as a kid back in the '80s I could open a wafer lock with a small screwdriver and a paperclip. With something like this I probably wouldn't have bothered, though. I'd have modified an extra cord to use black and yellow instead of red and green, and added a switched bridge somewhere else on the line so I could flip it and activate the jack, while killing red/green in the rest of the house. How do I know I'd have done that? Because I did, not because of one of these but to keep anybody from accidentally picking up a phone and dialing while I was online.

    70. Ikouy Bolt

      Dale Gribble is probably the last person to use a lock like that. Or is it the first?

    71. Liny

      All fun and games till someone needs to call emergency services and then the product will instantly be banned from sale due to that

    72. Dylan Depetro

      I’m guessing that’s why in the modern day we use internet passwords.... oh, wait. That doesn’t help at all considering most people are lazy and use something personal as a password. I tend to just hit up random number generators, generate several ten digit numbers, and make my password a completely random math problem. Good luck to anyone trying to guess my passwords. You’ll need it. Lol.

    73. Chris L

      This reminds me of the locks on those portable fireproof "safes" they sell at Walmart. I can open those things with a pair of finger nail clippers in less then 2 seconds. There completely useless as a way of securing anything.

    74. The Dynast Queen

      This lock is peak Dale Gribble.

    75. TimmyWasHere

      WTF! You mean to tell me that's all that was between me and the "Free Tour" sections of many a website back in the day?! You've done more to ruin my childhood then any "truth behind you favorite childhood whatever" video has ever done.

    76. Aaron Williams

      That thing definitely has a bug in it if it came from rusty.

    77. MWB Gaming

      Those were actually banned in my country because it could stop someone from calling emergency services

    78. matt79de

      How to defeat any wafer lock 2.0: Show it a picture of the LPL giving it a stern look...

    79. Nick Ranger

      I never had locks like this. We had AOL dialup. Unless you are deaf you or not in the house you couldn't hide that dial up sound. I tried with out much success. Also if my dad tried to call I couldn't explain why that phone line was busy.

    80. Daniel Steer

      I would rather hide the cable than install a new socket like this haha

    81. Emilie H

      Dale sent you that lock

    82. David Tosscano

      Wow, I’m sure even I can pick that.

    83. Gravity

      1:27 And for a second I thought it was a fluke.

    84. Dylan Ryan

      There is no connection on the back of the plug, How does it work without an imput

      1. Xiefux

        @Dylan Ryan yes, it connects to phone line with wifi. what is so hard to understand?

      2. Dylan Ryan

        Dam you didnt evenn watch the video. It's before with dialup. It has to connect to the phone line. There is no connection

      3. Xiefux

        @Dylan Ryan maybe the wifi is hidden to protect from hackers?

      4. Dylan Ryan

        Do you see any wifi circuit board and power imput on the back? The lock has wires to the socket nothing else

      5. Xiefux

        it uses wifi

    85. Moe Gains

      i still remember that rune scimmy i lost because my mom didnt warn me that shes about to call somebody when i was in wildy:(

    86. Moe Gains

      just skip the “fluke” part. nobody ever thinks you picking a lock is a fluke lol

    87. Malloriak

      Seems such lock used to secure service phone in lobby agaist public, not from intentional break/ so thats why so poor security.

    88. Aleksey Magno

      It opened faster than a master lock

    89. Collector by Nature

      Want to lock the internet? Don’t pay the bills until your kids’ grades improve.

    90. Mosern1977

      Well, when turned off, your computer was pretty safe from external hackers.

    91. Bro Really

      He lock picked the internet

    92. Little Jonathorn

      What was the purpose of this lock again?

    93. _godsayshi

      "oh! he didn't pull out a rake! must be a half decen- oh wait he just slid across"

    94. Grenz Viel

      I used to break in my dad's locker and it only had a wafer lock. I used a simple hairpin as a key. Stuck it in and 'jiggled' it 'til it opened. I had access to his guns but I couldn't tell him 'cause he woulda whooped my ass for even attempting. It was such a garbage lock tho, and if my parents used this stuff, it would not have slowed me down.

    95. ntsecrets

      Rusty shakelford!!!

    96. FuquarProductions

      Funny, if it were connected to two line phone...it is only capable of cutting line one.

    97. Ben D

      Dale Gribble, I'm on to you

    98. Brandon Andrews

      Love the king of thr hill reference

    99. RamenNoodleRaymond

      I’ve been bingeing King of the Hill and Rusty Shackleford just made my day.
