im guessing you saw that lock on the train tracks??


Sure did. Got on the train tracks, took the picture, then got off as soon as I could. Even though I didn't see a train those tracks are still a bit freaky to stand on.

Yeah, it is a wafer lock. Like the S&G Environmental they don't seem to really care about security against picking.

Forget about the whole Duo question, I wasn't really getting what you meant but now that I have looked into it, that is pretty damn cool man.

No. It's more like the Chicago double sided wafer lock. Maybe a titsch higher quality, though.

im fairly certain even chicago locks use a spring per wafer... instead of 1 spring for ALL the wafers...

from the factory every wafer is exactly the same... they put them in the plug, insert the key then trim them all to fit the plug... so there is no way to "read" them.. the single wpring wire that springs them outward from the plug is kinda S shaped so some are sprung up while others are sprung down...

they are really neat... someone should break one down with some pix ;)

Easy way to pick them, Overlift one side, apply tension, then rake or swp the other side. If that does not work switch the side you overlift!!

Re: Locks I see out and about

Don't know if this is worth posting but because I have never seen one before I thought it was pretty cool. It is a Sargent padlock. Sorry it isn't clear.

I had some of those. I put Sargent Signature Series cores in em and then sent them around. Nice find. I think Sargent makes quality stuff.

Re: Locks I see out and about

I seen a DOM IX 5 at a petrol station yesterday. I did take a pic but it looks pretty crappy.

Petrol stations give some of the coolest locks that I see out and about. There's a KABA 20 on another I know of.

I don't care if it looks "crappy" man, I want to see that! I have never seen a DOM when out before. Really all I see are Medecos, Masters, Americans and BEST locks.
