Picking an Abus 20/70?

Can the ABUS 20/70 (ABUS-Plus) style lock be picked with this:

Here is the lock I'm talking about:

I bought the pick already... Now, I'm looking for a decent lock to play with. :D

If the answer is no, I've got two follow-up questions...

(1) Does anyone make a pick that will work on the ABUS-Plus? I'd imagine that a rotating anti-drill plate would be the problem if the pick I ordered won't work. Maybe the other set of disc-detainer picks that uklockpickers sells would work?

(2) Where can I find a decent lock that my pick WILL work on? Someplace within CONUS would be preferable to limit the cost and shipping time.

I tried that pick on an Abus that I have and couldn't get it to work with that "D" shaped keyway.

However, I have been trying to work my voodoo on a SOBO lock - which has that hour-glass shaped keyway that fits the pick quite nicely.

Here's a link to their line of locks: http://sobolocks.com/

They are very nice locks and are available here: http://www.padlocks4less.com/shop/padlocks/high-security

Here are some other sources for others that may work (but they are so damn expensive!) : http://www.lockitt.com/PadlockHighSecurity.htm#xenabullett

Don't really know if you need an alarm function on the lock - but you never can tell.

Hope this helps, John.

Hrm... Could the tool be modified to fit the keyway and work? IE; is it the tension part that won't fit or the probe or both?

Actually I mis-spoke. It's not an Abus, its an Abloy. I have two Abloys - a small 1 - 3/8" brass padlock and a cylindrical cam lock. On both of mine, the probe paddle and tensioner are too big to fit in the "D" shaped keyways.

The keys measure 7/16" of inch approx in width - but neither the tension or pick probe will enter the keyway.
