  3. Hope you try and pick that Cisa I have just fitted them on my doors if you snap them the are armoured so you can't put in a screwdriver and open that way, also the ones I bought have a clutch that means if the key is left in the back you can still get in

  4. I highly doubt that SKS the lock maker is the same as the rifle maker, because SKS is a model of rifle and not a manufacturer.
    It's like when a lock has "AR15" or "1911" on there. You'd not assume that the lock was made by Colt or whatever.

    Or was it a joke that I'm missing? :)

  5. Bill great video as usual. I really appreciate the time you put into informing "us" what your feeling inside the lock. Again brother, I've got two different model locks that I keyed alike I'd like to get to you…. I know you'd have fun with and might cuss me a little too, and no l didn't put any screws in them….lol

  6. You make me so nervous when you have to really pry things apart 🙁 I feel like you're going to do exactly as you stated – gouge your hand
