Re: CONTEST! PIN TUMBLER PICKING COMPETITION

Damn i would love to participate but i dont own a high security lock... I've been looking for someone to trade with, no luck yet though, im willing to trade like 3 or 4 of my locks for anything with a couple spool pins in them. i own 16 padlocks, i guess no one want them :(

You cant recognise any pin I'm showing you.

For a camera with no macro function... if you have a good magnifying glass you should be able use it to create another level of magnification besides what the lenses in your camera can produce. Glare is a problem you can deal with possibly by toilet paper tube or a small light shade. Getting the camera to focus through the glass might take some experimenting, but just to add clarity to the video so you can see the pins more clearly after you have the lock apart, I think with some creativity this might do the trick and still meet the qualifications for one continuous shot.

Thanks for the tipps mate, i tried some magnifying glasses and found one which really helps the viewer to reconise the pins. Now I'm going to join the competition :D

If you mean replacing the standard pins that came with the lock with more difficult security pins - yes.

The idea of the competition is to see who can pick a lock in the quickest time, with the lock containing the most difficult security pins - and utilizing extreme bitting.

Re: CONTEST! PIN TUMBLER PICKING COMPETITION

I think this may have already been answered but what the heck. If i pick a lock i don't have a key for. Then dissemble, show the bitting from the pins, lock gutted. Then assemble on camera, pick open on camera, dissemble again on camera. Would this be a valid entry??? just curious.

No. Not eligible.

We really need to see the key bitting - it's a requisite condition so the judges can look at the bitting and tell what kind of pin arrangement is in the bible.

Obviously, you could take each pin stack as it is removed and reassemble them in front of the camera - side by side, in order of removal. But it would be a pain to watch you chase pins across the desk and re-stacking them. The video would go much quicker if we had a key to look at.

For now, we need to stick to the rules of the competition as they have been previously established. Otherwise, there will be a million other variables of excrutiating minutiae that can be brought into question.

I'm not a clever doctor, lawyer, or have a PhD in mechanical engineering...I'm just a chubby little fuzzball of love that picks locks.

Let's keep it simple for now.


[Edit: BTW - If you are entering the contest, you need to show your location in your personal info beneath your name. It's part of the contest rules. Please go to the User Control Panel (upper left hand corner of page) and add your data.]
