Abus RK Series 3-in-1 Pick (The Triplicator)

I decided to knock up a dedicated Abus pick. This will tension from the front, rear or anywhere in the middle of the lock, making it suitable for every incarnation of the Abus Granit/Plus family.

Image

If you want to tension from the rear then the one picking tip sits behind the tensioner at the rear of the lock and the front tip does the picking. To tension from the front, the one picking tip just sits on the outside of the lock and the deep tip does the picking. Then you can go anywhere in-between with a pick either side.

Does it work though? :hbg: :hbg:

Great! What diameter has the outer tube?

I am waiting for a 1.8mm wire to arrive, so that I can make together with a 3mm tube a pick.

Most probably 3 mm tube, as that is the largest you can with inside the lock.

Nice work hux :)

Exactly! 3mm OD on the outer-most tube. Use as much space as possible.

I like it! A task I'll need to accomplish one of these days as I've recently been handed one of those Abus Granit/x-Plus beasties. Great idea to give yourself the option of picking old and new beasties with the one pick.

Using all the space with the 3 mm tube also helps keeping the pick straight in the key hole.

You made a very nice pick, as usual!

Cheers :)

have you seen the circular ring popped over the abus pick for this reason - looks like a additional after thought to stop pick moving - rocking when entered into keyway - I had wondered what it was untill I came across a french vid today on the tube
we we we looked because of HP,s topic ... great idea a true genius :razz: 3 in 1 Abus pick mark one

Happy new year

Happy New year to you too, Ringo! No I haven't seen the video, but the concept is clear. Thanks for the suggestion.

Cheers :)

Re: Abus RK Series 3-in-1 Pick (The Triplicator)

I know the little adaptor. The problem I have with it is that it can't be too tight around the outer pick arm because the pick need to come out of the lock (as well as in) and it pulls the adaptor out with it. So if you make it well fitting to the outer OD and loose in the middle, its benefits are reduced. And yet I do not really see any other way with a 3-in-1 because you never can tell which arms will be fixed. Stabilising the pick whilst picking disc detainers is a big thing for me though. I went to great lengths to do it on the Abloy Classic pick. If only there were a way to have a reliable 2-in-1 for every Abus...

And yes Ringo, this is just the 1st prototype, it will change I am sure. It has no decoding marks, no bells, no whistles. :cool:
