Picked my first Medeco!!!

Finally the day has come, i picked my first Medeco!!! (classic) and i must say, what a feeling!!! Unfortunately the picture doesn't do justice, i just didnt record it cause i didnt expect to actually get it picked! I'm leaving this one picked open for a while, it needs to know it has been defeated! haha

I used CCW tension, pulsing the tension i was able to set the sidebar, as i rotated pins while pulsing tension i looked for extra slop in the plug and a couple times i was able to hear the faint click as the gate snapped into the side bar, then it took some fairly high tension to set the pins to the shearline, i cant believe i finally did it!

Re: Picked my first Medeco!!!

Very nice work! I have a few Medecos that I have not been able to pick. They are in a box for now until I can work on stepping up my game.

"I'm leaving this one picked open for a while, it needs to know it has been defeated!" I couldn't agree more. Haha!

Re: Picked my first Medeco!!!

Sweet work mate. The feeling of picking a medeco is something far beyond any other lock (not including the high sec stuff like Assa etc). I was super happy for days after I picked mine.

I can understand you want to leave this lock picked but I wouldnt, simply because the technique is fresh in your head. Let it sit for a week or two and it will feel like day one again. Since you now understand what your feeling inside this lock, keep practicing. Plus look at it this way, when you will be able to open this quickly you can then make a video and get it picked on video which you can watch over and over again. This will last much longer :)

Re: Picked my first Medeco!!!

I hate that feeling when you might only have one or two pins out of rotation and try to set the shearline and then you get that false set where it hangs up on the side bar!! Then gotta start all over and try adjusting, seems to me that when rotation is set correctly the pins are springy, this only helps to a certain point because with my lock at least one pin will bind the shearline before the sidebar is completely set

Edit: just picked it again!

Congrats! That must feel awesome. You have inspired me, I am going to pull the Medeco to the front row and start trying to pick it again.

You do not have to start all over. Please read my article: viewtopic.php?f=90&t=4077

Re: Picked my first Medeco!!!

I am picking ccw i didn't reading anything about being able to adjust rotation after setting a couple pins to shear without dropping them, that's what I meant by having to start over
