Thank you, just1pick+open!

Day 296 of 366. When I impressioned a key for this nice padlock, I used a sharpie. Not only helped to see the marks, but also reduced the blinding of the shiny chromed key.
Today I picked it open and noticed the key is still black.

Cheers :)

Day 297 of 366. Six levers, bolt in the middle, so it's called 3+3. Very nice style, the 3 padlocks logo is so cool 8)

Cheers :)

Re: Happy 2020!

Yes, nice artwork! How did you keep the wires in place? I did a video about my proof of concept contraption for that and am curious what you did. For those interested: https://youtu.be/ryxb-IpqY7s

Re: Happy 2020!

I've seen your video, edocdab. Interesting tool... I hate picking with floating wires. I usually try to use a warding as a pivot point for them. In that padlock I used the small cylinder that guides the key as a fulcrum for both wires.

Day 298 of 366.

Re: Happy 2020!

Ah, thanks. Indeed floating wires, slipping out of position and my thumb disliking being a pivot point made me think of that tool. Thanks for the feedback Femurat.

Day 299 of 366. Thanks to my friend Filipe for these unique locks. Teicocil is a Portuguese brand but despite being quite close, I've never seen anything like these here in Italy.

Cheers :)

Day 300 of 366. I opened this nice and shiny Swiss still bank. A gift from my friend kilae. It's a four levers curtained lever lock, the bolt is on the back. It was tricky to find the correct tools. I tried a handful of wires I had already bent and nothing worked. In the end I shaped a new piece of wire and used a half diamond to open it.
Then used an old Yale and Towne flat key as a blank and impressioned a key.

Cheers :)

Day 301 of 366. This DOM has one of the most paracentric keyways I've opened!

Cheers :)

PS: I got the thread title changed, it makes more sense now.

That very thin pick shaft helps a lot with that, I'm sure :)

Exactly, edocdab. That very thin shaft is the only way to fit a pick in there.

Day 302 of 366. Speaking about paracentric keyways, her is a GEGE! I had to finish it with the modified hook to lift the fourth short pin enough.

Cheers :)

Day 303 of 366. This DUO padlock fooled me until I noticed the second row of wafers on the side.

Cheers :)

Day 304 of 366. I was just relaxing while at "Virtual Not LockCon". I pushed the cam with my thumb to have more space for the pick, but have opened it in the past with a regular tension wrench. I moved the sliders precisely with the small groove on the tip of this pick and moved them loosely with its side.
Had to release tension a few times, but after some tries it opened!

Cheers :)

Thanks edocdab, the simpler design, the better!

Day 305 of 366. This old Yale lever padlock travelled the world. Gordon, I'm still happy when I see this padlock you sent me. When I made a temporary brass key, I didn't imagine it would last so long. Sooner or later I should make a better one.

Cheers :)
