(59) Abus Titalium 80TI/50 Padlock SPP’d (#2)

My vises are made by Panavise, a U.S. Company.  The one with the wide jaws is the model 350.  The smaller one is the model 301. Both have the 312 Base mount – www.panavise.com



  1. been working on one for a few days now. SPP’d it openwithin a couple of hours. Still playing with it for about a week now and can get it down to 30 seconds or less! Fastest time was 14 seconds. Ordering another one to see how long it will take me to spp a brand new one.

  2. Just got mine today. It took a good hour to get it. The Peterson Prybar Lite fits perfectly in the top of the keyway. Pin 1 seems to be serrated, and the rest feel like spools. I think my main problem with this one is that pin 6 is high-cut and is behind a low-cut pin 5. I need a medium hook to get back there. I only have a short and a long, and the long hook is too big to get back to pin 6.

    1. After a little practice I’m getting it figured out. My tension had been too heavy, for one thing. Using just a short hook works fine. You just have to get back there and set 6 before it’s too late. You have to reset some pins several times of course, especially pin 1, which is the non-spool. The keyway is pretty nice. You level off the warding and don’t have to tilt the hook very much.

  3. Haha, mine just sprang open at the first wiggle. Worked 3 times in a row. The form of the bitting looks exactly like the small hook i used.

  4. This is the second hardest lock in my arsenal of about 30 different locks right now (The newest commando lock takes the cake..). I've spp'd it about 15 times now (over the course of 5+ hours of solid picking) and haven't beat my record of 5 minutes yet. I absolutely cannot rake, bi*ch pick it, or any other quick pick style (don't have shims, but i bet its shimmable, no ball bearings). difficulty wise, this blows my masterlock 911, and american lock 5200 (1998 edition) out of the water, so I'm guessing mine might just be particularly hard. If I so much as bump the second pin while I'm working on the rest, it oversets and I have to start all over.

  5. i'm verry dissapointet with my "ABUS 64TI/50" i'm an idiot at "spp" so i mostly "rig" "bitch pick" or "bypass" my locks and i think i opend my "TITALIUM" (bught in Denmark) 500+ times with every pick in my arsenal.. even just got it opend with the back-end of an skinny tensionbar ???? the lock is bought by me and has never ben used, only picked..


    all the pinns are resetting in between every pick and the keys bidding is about "medium"

    Great "confidens-booster" but shitty lock..

    Kind Regards from Denmark..

  6. I know this is an old vid of yours Bill, but I have only just started looking at padlocks specifically Abus, so ye doing my research.

    I'm with you on key bitting. I don't know if it is just the way my brain does (or does not) work, but seeing a key's bitting does not help me either, in fact sometimes it is just a hidderance so mummification is no problem to me.

    I'm equally as bad with binding order. Some guys, Koko, Waddac etc they seem to get binding order in one pass – I just go for the pin that (hopefully) presents itself.

    Cool pick, thank you.

    I've managaed to pick a titallium 54ti/50 half a dozen times. There are serrated pins at 3, 4 and 5 I think. MrAnybody tells me they don't have serrated. He is right, they shouldn't but these things give me me multiple clicks and pins 1 and 2 won't bid until about 4-5 sets on the other 3.

    I can't find a video of yours for the 54ti, but I know you have picked similar – can you end this mystery for me please?


  7. Just picked my first ABUS. It was an ABUS 55/40. Had a little difficult time with it, but I got it. I picked it pin by pin. Went back to Amazon Prime, bought myself my 2nd padlock 5 minutes ago. Abus Titalium 80TI/50 for $13.32. I bet I'm gonna have a very difficult time with the Abus Titalium 80TI/50. Using my own custom picks made from 0.025" 1095 Blue Tempered Shim stock from McMaster-Carr. Love my new picks, so far they haven't let me down. Going on 6+ months now with my picks. (+1 : 17)

  8. I generally use Peterson's picks (standard hook, medium hook, gem) and "Pry bars",both the light and normal. For rakes I use Sparrow's bogota and "worm". That's pretty much all you need to pick most locks.

  9. God mate you got many many padlocks there! I got myself a Titalium too and the keys looked really good to me nice to see that I was right. The tolerances are good but none of them comes with a ball locking mechanism though…
