(541) Norseman Lockpicker’s Challenge #3


LockLab is Fan funded!  Help pay for stuff to review, break and talk trash about, and maybe even give away when we’re done.  Join the Tribe!

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. I have been watching you for some time and I enjoy the whole lock sporting adventure and am curious.. I don't keep tension.. I sort of "bounce" on the wrench as I feel sets. Is it better to keep a set tension and fight the core spinning or back off a bit? I'm fighting a lock with security pins and having a devil of a time and was curious if you kept constant pressure or judged by sets to give more or less pressure on the wrench. 

  2. Nice work, my friend! I saw some nice, pink plastic tweezers in a hobby shop the other day that would highlight your complexion on camera 🙂 heheh

  3. hi in the uk the pins are pointed down would i use the same technique you use for a basic cylinder lock with me pushing them down or would i need to use another technique 

  4. Nicely done.
    The springs is Trioving springs. The intention was to make it harder to balance the light tension needed to pick it. But you polled it of
    I used commercial pins on this one and the Schlage. But I think it worked out pretty well, with the configuration in this one.

    Now all that is left is a small sprint to the finish. Enjoy the last one ;o)
