The is very unique as you can see

The system is very similar to the lock I’ve recently described in here the “Z-con”

This is the lock without the key

As the key goes in the levers (or disc) will sit in the holes and the plug can turn

The hole in the key is key retinar that porvents the key extraction.

Here is the inside of the core

  3. This would certainly leave me stumped it looks like a simple wafer lock to the untrained eye.
    How does it pick?

  4. You find locks like these on casino slot machines and are a lot harder to open than they look…

  5. I am the owner of Seahorse Safe and Lockout Svc, LLC in Longmont, CO. I ran into this lock and have never seen anything like it. Is it possible to order one of this lock with 2 keys? Might there also be either a specialized pick, or a try-out set to use on this kind of lock?
