and i just couldn't figure out WHY....???
"Just a sc4,six-pin...pickem' all the time"...i thought to myself....
(i went to ™Stanley's site and they also own S&G™,and BEST™!)
check out the specs.

They claim that there were "anti pick pins" in there, and this lock is a 5 out of 6 security rating, but i could NOT detect any sign of the usual security pin suspects..no shrooms,no spools,no serrations!
I could,however see that the keypins were stainless steel.(a feature not often found in cheaper locks.)
anyway QUITE some time later i popped it, and was dying to get a look at what was giving
me such a hard time..( i actually thought they were lying about there being any anti pick pins in there, because i have actually found this before..outright LYING on packaging,etc.)
at any rate here is the lock, picked open, disassembled, and ready to be keyed.
take a look what they have done,,similar to what ™Yale does with their different sized spool pins according to the depth of the key cut ,Stanley™ have done so with highly polished regular pins,and added a true double spool serrated (not a barrel pin.) on each end of the row of pins.
all in all, IMO very well done,for entry-level stuff. A hell of a great pick!
I will update this post with key made, and a link to a vid of me picking it...
and the keymaking process ,if requested.
