All you need to know about locks and picking them

Magnum 2100 Mont Blanc צילינדר מאגנום

Here is a quick look on a new Magnum lock I got – Magnum 2100 Mont Blanc.

This lock has a very good design and some nice features but as with many other locks can be defeated within seconds.

The  lock is actually a wafer lock (like vehicles)  and has a very narrow key way which is almost impossible to introduce a tension wrench in

The key is a double-sided key and the lock contains 8 wafers and 4 heights .

The middle wafer is an anti drilling one and therefore will not move.


 The plug sits within two plastic caps that hold the wafers when the key is not in.

The core of the lock and the anti snapping system (which makes it very difficult to dismantle).

The lock was sent to friends in England and was picked but I don’t think picking is the best solution.

A blank key will do the trick in no time…

  1. Very well worked out Raf. I have seen a lock very similar to this on a internal door at my local Bank.

    Due to the poor manufacturing tolerances, this is a very easy pick. The overlifting method is very effective too.
    Nice work Raf.
