Day 265 of 366. I like old and worn out medeco, they're so much easier than brand new ones!

Cheers :)

Day 266 of 366. Just to prove me wrong, this old and worn out medeco made me struggle a lot. I opened it a few times and it always took me a while.

Cheers :)

Day 269 of 366. Another lever lock. Thanks guys, this is completely different from my usual locks. Using these tools require hours just to learn how to control tension.

Cheers :)

We'll give you a week. Then, of course, we expect you pick them with your half diamond.

LOL if I bend it, it could work!

Day 270 of 366. Today I got this lockout padlock at a flea market. It feels different than other master locks. There's no return spring so light tension.

Cheers :)

Re: Happy 2020!

Those plastic Master LOTO locks are actually pretty challenging... I'd like to get a bunch of them for practice. The one I had was very specific to picking order, if you picked pin 4 before all of the others, it would fall into a really deep false set and completely bind up... you'd have to start over. Only time I've ever broken a pick was in that lock. 6 pins and lots of spools and serrated fun. If all of the master padlocks used this core, nobody would be making fun of them (as much... maybe).

Madsamurai, I've notice that master lock was different. More challenging, for sure!
