Re: AVA Disc detainer

Nice score! The key looks like an optical illusion lol, I know the cuts are angled but it looks like a warded key made of big square chunks! I'd say go with with first pic as the second one looks a bit overexposed.

Oh yeah, just remembered... you probably know this already but for anyone interested these are made by Chubb. :D

Re: AVA Disc detainer

These Avas are basically wafer locks. In Finland its widely used on bikes ( a welded on, camlock kind of thing), electric posts for car heaters on parking lots, as a cabinet lock, and some padlocks like the one on my video.
Han Fey has written a nice article about these:
http://toool.nl/images/7/72/Abloypart4.pdf
about half the way down.
There are 4 different keyways for these finnish avas, what we call "flat" is the one OP has. Then there are round (picture in Han Feys article), half round, and a smaller flat key thats a cabinet lock key. The last doesnot have same bitting/spacing as the rest. People ask for these keys a lot in wintertime, but I would need special jaws for keycutter to be able to copy these. Code cutting machine costed 7000 euros few years back, so I order those precut. Bitting codes are 3,5, and 7. OP´s key code is 533775557.

Re: ABLOY AVA wafer lock picked SWP

Hi there I done a tutorial on these locks
A few years back they are not like a wafer
Like cars or cabinets they are disc
The Ava in uk can not be tensioned by the
Plug it has to be driven by the tip
With correct driving tip look it up on utube
Mrmentholatum hope the video gives a better insight
To uk versions
