No...that's not right. The fence pin has a scored edge. This concept is similar to having teeth on the lever edge. It's been a while since I've viewed this lock.

Ok I asked a stupid question about wether or not you still write for TILJ and I can see that you do. With all due respect and I know you are not the publisher, but why are they not consistent with publishing that magazine? I love it but the last issue was March-April.

HI Lauren welcome to kp,around here we call this lock porn as you see the guts or it shows all,when i first became a member i thought it meant something rather different, you,ll find alot of topics to write about on here.

As for making a key for these rather simple lever locks a small hole can be drilled at the side of the stump the oblong locking pin,a pin inserted to line the gate when the lever is picked up with a thin wire gauge, when lined UP.. a measurment can be taken and so on for all levers.
ive seen many locks opened up to do this,then re.. riveted but one small hole is all you need then soldered over,thanks for your post.

Ken is a very busy man. He has way too many projects going on at once. I rarely talked to him anymore and even his emails are hurried.

heres an idea of what your wires will look like to pick your lock. One for tensioning the bolt, and one to lift the levers.

This is an easy padlock to practice on, and build confidence. Kinda comfort lever padlock.

Shape each wire to suit the lock, and you will learn as much by what didnt work, as what did.

Well, kick me into responding. I covered this lock in my book. I have the tools and knowledge for making keys for this Yale design. It's not as difficult as I once wrote at that other site.
