Hello From norway!

Hello! I am a 25 year old man from Norway. I work in a hardware store. Minimal experience with lockpicking, but i often repin cylinders for customers or do repairs. Recently bought a cheapo china set of picks and a cheap padlock that was way to easy to get open. So i decided to look through my grandpa's old cellar and found a lot of padlocks and some empty "hulls" at work that i pinned. The problem is that theese are trioving cylinders with :angspool: pins. So a steep learning curve for me. Pinned them with 2 and the pins for now. Got the one with two pins open easily, but the 3 pin ones i am struggeling with. Probably just need to figure out how it feels to overset/underset theese pins :)

Anyways, that's me and my experience (roughly a week) can take some pictures of the pins and cylinders if anyone are interested! Also found a padlock from abloy at in my cellar with a D shaped key (classic abloy?) that is really cool! :)

That's one hell-of-a-way to get started, lol... good for you!

You could search this forum for "trampoline pins" as they're
affectionately referred to around here. You might find some
tips and tricks for overcoming them. Keep at it!

Re: Hello From norway!

Those pins are pretty standard here. The "low security" locks i sell at work are all with only "trampoline" pins :) Idk why, but even the cheapest trioving cylinders are like this :)

Hallo, SlowLoris!
Curious to see your padlocks, could you please post pictures?
If you have any "Trio" (before they joined Ving and became TrioVing) padlocks, I`d be interested in a trade !

På gjenhør,
Ed
