The Lock Slayer's Journal


Ladies & Mentlegen,

I decided this would be a good idea to encourage people to post their lock slaying accomplishments into one megathread. I realize some of you already have your own threads. Feel free to continue using them. This thread will be open to anyone wanting to share their murderous conquests of picking, impressioning, bypassing, etc. Please post photos! We shall see where this goes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I'll start off with this 5-pin BEST SFIC I removed for Riyame from an old BEST padlock. Despite being only 5 pins it put up one hell of a fight and took a few hours. I had to lube it up with some Rem Oil as the feedback was just that bad.

A five pin Folger Adam prison lock. Killed with my Mogul murdering pick made from a butter knife blade.

Lookin' forward to seeing more dead locks....

Sometimes it seems age can be our biggest enemy.

Yea, the universals were all made between 1925? and 1938 iirc. But he has a newer one of mine that just might make him swear off Bests all together :lol:

Here's another one I just removed a few minutes ago.

7-Pin BEST from a Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory padlock. It required extremely hard tension and more Rem oil.

Here’s mine. Click on the pic to get a better look at the keyway.

Not as flash as some of the locks that you guys have but it was a buzz to eventually get it SPP.

I mainly practice on padlocks as they are the easiest for me to acquire.

Got this lock as the key was lost. It is not a Federal cylinder.

The cylinder is a 6 pin 3rd party restricted keyway (very narrow as well as paracentric). I think it is a Yale though there are no markings on it.

I know this lock now (NOT in the Biblical sense ! :whip: ) and have popped it three times.

There are still more locks in my “naughty box”

Here is the latest on that is giving me grief :slam: . Amazingly, a cheap Chinese lock but a look at the bitting along with the usual sloppy tolerances are working against me. I selected it because of the bitting.

I might have to step up to the grinder and make an extra long hook.

Cheers.

Nice bitting on that cheap Chinese lock, Neilau. Perhaps an offset diamond?

Abus Rock 83/80 with Series 2 Core. Keyway is only a KW1. 5 pin with spools.

Took me a few days but I got it! I used a short hook and a custom tension wrench.

Slayed my first high security lock per se:

Medeco Biaxial 6 pin

Still not consistent, it was just my first time picking it with 6 pins. But I'll get it eventually!
Used a short hook with a small groove I made in it.
