Good job on getting that open! Those things can be time consuming.

Next safe key lock. My first EN1300 classified lock. It is a STUV 4.19.92. Took me on my first real attempt about a quarter of an hour. (made the mistake to not look on the clock) Proceeded as recommended by ratlock and it was open.

Yesterday I picked my LOTO lock three times. I have been working on the LOTO locks for a while.
This bitting was easier than the one that has been escaping me for a year(but that one got spun, and dropped the pins).
Image

Today I picked this American 1100(twice). The bitting is high low high low (although not too far apart).

The next one. The STUV was easy. With reshuffled levers it took me 7 minutes to open it. Don't know how they managed to certify it. This time it was a real safe lock, a Cawi Optima 2648. Took me 2 hours 53 minutes. There are worlds between these two locks.

Astonishing how quick there are improvements. First opening 2:53. Second opening after a lever shuffle 1:20. Now after a shuffle 0:43.

S&G 7 Lever

More levers inside this lock than I could poke a stick at! But not a pick! I used a Prybar and a Gem to open this one.

In the above image, you can see where I drilled the dimple that retains the outer cover and hence the springs and pins, and replaced it with a little grub screw. Dont know why I continue to want to monkey around inside these dimple locks, I always end up regretting it, and putting it aside to be re-assembled some months later when I have the time. I had intended to take some gut shots for everyone, but it never eventuated, as I wanted to get it back together so I could pick it, given my recent success with other dimples.

And another!

This is an 8 pin radial dimple lock from a car steering wheel lockout, like a ClubLock or such. 2 pins stacked vertically at each 1.30, 4.30, 7.30 and 10.30.

In this lock the centre post remains static while the middle ring rotates around it. To tension it I made a custom tubular lock style tension tool to fit.
