So I woke up today determined to tackle my new Master Lock 150. Started off the day with some confidence builders...

Including the Master No.5 that used to give me trouble.

And the 7 pin BEST padlock.

Then finally I went for the 150... The tension wrench I had tried to use on it before robbed me of too much work room, so I tried one a little more narrow. After about 3 minutes, here is the result :smile:

Thank you again for pointing me to your write up and gutting of the 140, it gave me a much better idea of what to expect with this one. Your tip with the serrated pin held true also, it was indeed pin 1 and it was the first to bind, but the last to set.

Great to hear it! And, sometimes you might find yourself playing a game of 'bop-em'. lol
You'll set one, drop one, set that one, drop another.... but they eventually yield :)

"Whack A Mole" is what came to mind for me haha, but yes that is exactly how it was with this one. Did it at least 15 times today, each time dropping and setting.

Ha. Whack-a-mole is how I would describe picking a spooled Abus or Brinks.

No - Wack A Mole is my description for a seven pin TrioVing. That thing is practically a hydra - for every pin you set, two more grow back.

Got an Abus 55/40 in the mail today. 4 pins, felt like at least two spools possibly three with one or two standard.

Your knockin' em' down left and right! Nice job.

I've had a fair number of those really give me a run for my money.
I think most U-Haul trucks use Abus padlocks (from what I've seen).

I really like picking this one, I am probably going to look into getting a more challenging Abus model in the near future.

Try one of these on the right for an Abus upgrade!

Gordon.

Have you picked it ?

Killer key way and key.

I think I posted these in the wrong place http://keypicking.com/viewtopic.php?p=81624#p81624.

I meant to put them here.

Not quite as mean as yours but I get quite a buzz when I get these.

I was rather surprised at the pickability. It is not an 'easy' lock to pick, but it is not, in my opinion, high security. More 'intermediate security'.
