First Disc Detainer using Solomon's technique

Just picked my first disc detainer using the technique Solomon demonstrated in his video using a wire pick and a tension wrench. Thank you, Solomon!

Didn't he also have a video where he uses a wide tensor (probably wiper insert) and a half diamond pick?

Re: First Disc Detainer using Solomon's technique

I think he did. I got this lock because there was one like it in Bosnian Bill's Travelling Lock Box. However, when I received this one from eBay, the retaining ring and first disc were chewed up, as you can see in the picture. I was not happy about that. However, when I contacted the seller saying that I wanted to return it, they refunded the money and told me I could keep it.

P.S. As you no doubt noticed, the tension wrench is a wiper insert. Made it last night when I decided to tackle the lock the way Solomon's video showed.

Does the chewed up retaining ring and disc affect the normal operation of the lock? It was a good move from the seller to do that. If only there were more who did that...

Re: First Disc Detainer using Solomon's technique

The lock functions normally, even with the retaining ring chewed up and the first disc a little rough looking. It came with three keys, all of which work without any problems.

Have picked these before with a borrowed disc detainer pick, but it is more fun with the wire pick.

Good work my friend! I too have just started using this technique and it's thanks to Solomon also. They really are quite crap in the main aren't they?!

Re: First Disc Detainer using Solomon's technique

How wide was the tension wrench you used?

I tried this but my tension wrench was not wide enough. =/

Re: First Disc Detainer using Solomon's technique

About as wide as the height of the keyway. (As wide as the key is tall).
