  1. Hello Bill, I was wondering if there are any locks, where the key goes halfway in, turns 90 degrees or so, then goes all the way in, and then turns the rest of the way? I see these in movies all the time, for like tombs and stuff, and wondered if this was based off something real, or just Hollywood making locks more interesting. I have also seen it like a combination lock: Key goes in turns clockwise to 90 then counter clock wise back to xxx. Are any of these real?

  2. very nice, i have a smiley style lock, apparently used in prisons, it has ball bearings under the key pins, or ball bearings for keypins and 8 pins, very hard to get a dimple under. I've been struggling to tension it and now you've shown me a new option ;)

  3. Seems like they could make this design so much harder by randomizing placement of pins as well and not putting them in a straight line.    Maybe add a half dozen more pins…  dunno why lock makers' seem to have an obsession with including only 5 or 6 pins…  :)

  4. the more I watch you videos the more amazed I am on how skiled you are I have seen a lot of locks you picked that I would have gave up on till I hade a lot of time to pick them and you just pick them open with no trouble only thing I notice different is you use a lot of top tenchion and I do mostly lower as I have trouble with the top most times.
