Topic: Lock picking
If you deal with any particulat lever lock on a regular basis it may be worth investing some money in a decoder / make up key kit for that lock.
They are fairly exspensive but can save a lot of time when compared to picking or drilling open the locks.
These decoder kits can read the levers in the lock.
The decoder for the securefast locks reads the levers by the height which they are lifted which then corresponds to a cut depth.
Here is a demonstration by a local locksmith in Middlesbrough that encounters securefast 5 lever locks on a regular basis.
Important things to note:
- Make sure to place the pins in the correct slots in the blank.
- When no pin is required remember to leave that part of your blank empty and not insert the next pin into that hole.
- When cutting a key from the make up key remember to reverse the cuts for the rest of the key.
