I’ve opened a few Union padlocks in my time, but this one was “special”. Yeah, there’s the “secret” of tensioning these locks and I felt confident that was all I’d need to whip this thing open for you. Instead, a lesson in humility took place. This Union was VERY resistant to being picked. The feedback was subtle and the security pins set and unset themselves seemingly at random. Of course, that’s exactly what spools are supposed to do, but these fell into coordination with each other, causing multiple resets. Frustrating, but refreshing to find a lock that provides the promised level of security.
