ASSA DP / Ruko Garant+

The ASSA DP / Ruko Garant+ is the newest sidebar design from ASSA.
On the outside, it looks very much like ASSA Twin/Twin Combi, but unlike those it uses spring-less sliders for the side mechanism.
Basically it's like Desmo (but with much smaller pins) or EVVA 3KS, but with a pin tumbler mechanism on top.
What's interesting is that the design utilizes "split pins". There are 5 pin Chambers but each actually holds 2 pins, for a grand total of 10.
This should mean that it has a much bigger code space and also that the side mechanism is actually master-keyable.
Thanks to a trade with macavity I finally got my hands on a brand-new one.

Sorry for the crappy photos, my setup isn't exactly the best as you can see...

Key. At first glance it's just like any Twin/Twin Combi, but note that the side code is actually a track and not just a normal bitting.

Top pins. Standard new-style ASSA drivers - boooring! The pin chambers are countermilled/threaded as well, just like usual.

Plug and sidebar. Thankfully for us that are somewhat stupid and clumsy, and unlike certain other locks, the sidebar is reversible.

Close-up showing side pins and gates. This is as far as I'm willing to go at the moment - the pins are TINY! You can clearly see the split between the two pins in each chamber.

The "gate side" looks very much like EVVA 3KS (how is one not a patent violation of the other?!), with shallow false gates.

The design of the lock is documented in US patent 7370502, which can be viewed at http://www.freepatentsonline.com/7370502.html

Thought the Triton 501 was the latest offering from Ruko/ASSA? Garant Plus is neat little lock, just putting the finishing touches to a cutaway design of it. Heres some more photos...

Re: ASSA DP / Ruko Garant+

Much better photo setup than mine obviously :)
Picked it yet? I have poked a bit and it seems as doable as any other slider lock. Just need a finer tool.

As to Triton (and Neptun), I count it as the latest incarnation of Twin Combi, not a separate mechanism.
Correct me if I'm wrong here, ASSA has quite a confusing product line-up :)

Re: ASSA DP / Ruko Garant+

You are right... the Triton is just the S1200 (Assa D12) with the TwinCombin sidebar stuck on the side of it!

Re: ASSA DP / Ruko Garant+

I think there are SOME (minor) differences/adjustments compared to earlier Twin Combi's, but wouldn't exactly count it as new.

It's kinda weird that they stick with Twin Combi. It doesn't have the best reputation among locksmiths - apparently older ones break at an alarming rate. Plus it has a limited code space and master keying abilities. Compare that with DP/G+ where the side mechanism would make a pretty good lock by itself. And should be very reliable.
