Dumbass mistake w/ABUS 83CS/55

Yesterday I made a dumbass mistake while disassembling my ABUS 83CS/55 Rock. I pushed in the detent and turned the plug the wrong way.....when I heard the drivers load into the plug I thought 'Crap I just ruined this great lock. After looking at it awhile and thinking the worst, I realized that one key pin was stuck in there and five drivers, four of which were spools. On this particular lock there is access through the plug, so after doing a little math, I made a tool that would push all the remaining drivers to the shear line as well as the stuck key pin. I was really happy when it worked and got my lock back.

Think we've all heard various 'sounds' and felt the doom that comes with it. lol

Nice recovery! Very creative.
