  1. Great video, great pickin’, raking and info, Bill. Wonder if it could be by passed??

  2. Bill–How would you SPP this lock? I lever the pick off of a ward or bottom of the keyway, and this wouldn’t be a possibility with this type of lock.

  3. A 16 pin lock does sound impressive, but it gave up the ghost pretty easily. It is a shame they don’t at least keep the lock from being shimmed. To easy! It is amazing how some of the locks I have great difficulty SPP-ing, but I rake them open in no time at all.

  4. Hello bosnianbill i love your videos been watching them for a while now and was thinking about to start lockpicking and i have a idea for a lock that i would like to discuss with you in private if it is possible

  5. Hey Bill, about how many times can you rake a lock before you destroy the pins (assuming they are all brass pins)? Are all brass pins made using the same alloy, or are there some that are more durable than others?

    1. Just think about how many years you can jam a key in a lock, multiple times per day, and have it still function. I don’t think raking it is going to do any damage.

  6. The brazilian price is very expensive for a padlock but it has a different key so maybe it's worth it, the one with common key cost 1/3 of this one.

  7. Hi, Bosnian. If you were to ignore the pins (since you haven't shown them), would you consider it a 8/10? I mean, the gap for the shim seemed to be quite tight thanks to the strong spring and there are 16 pins so it's natural it would take longer to rake. I am no expert on locks but my guess is that a 8/10 would be a fair enough score for it, not too high, not too low.

    1. 8/10 seems too high for any lock that’s rakeable. 5/10 is too high for any lock that’s shimmable.
