(126) Evva DPI 6-Pin Euro Cylinder SPP’d


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. Just keep at it – you'll wear it down. Remember, the videos you see are not always the first take… Mine or anyone else's. Unless I specifically say in my videos it is the first attempt, it is usually the 2nd, 3rd or 100th. Persistence!

  2. Great fight… very entertaining. Glad ya got it on camera. If everything flew open like a Master we wouldn't still be picking now would we. lol

  3. Good point. And the magnets will stick together, preventing unfortunate slip-ups.

    As a side note, some of the newer EVVAs are modular, so you can take the double cylinder apart and, for example, change the length or swap in a thumbturn. I believe this will also enable the use of a plug follower. Nice to see the folks across the pond finally catching up with the rest of the world in this regard 😛

  4. I wish it it had taken me three attempts. I've deleted probably 3+ hours of video of my flailing around with this bastard. But it will be mine.

  5. I have two more… I've been spending some time every night fighting with them (in front of the camera, just in case). I think I must have sent him the friendliest of the bunch 😀 Or Bill's a much better picker than I.

  6. fantastic picking bill buddy!!, ive had one of these for a while and never picked it. The first pin drops mine straight into a false set also, so im gonna have another bash at it (bearing in mind ill need to maybe reset it)

  7. Thank you sir! What you DIDN'T see was the three failed attempts… Painful and frustrating. This lock whipped me and I had to EARN the open. It gives nothing away. One mistake and she drops all the set pins. I love it tho, a GREAT lock & I wouldn't mind having one on my door.

  8. It could but I would not. The washers are thinner so there is so much more of a chance of just 1 slipping and they you are screwed :/

  9. Damnit, now I can't blame the sidebar. OK, so I just suck. LOL. More practice, AGAIN!

    No, don't destroy the lock! But a really good gutting video would be sweet.

  10. Actually, I've picked both ends of it and can say there are no active elements in this lock that I had to deal with – just avoid the passive pins and you'll be OK.

    Or… is this an attempt to con me into cutting this baby open? Actually, mresurm had a great suggestion (non-destructive) to open it up – I'm working on it.

  11. Nicely done, Bill.

    Just one thing — which end of the cylinder did you pick? The other two DPIs I have from that lot only have sidebars on the longer end. And there is an active sidebar element right around pin 3 — or so say the forums.

    Damnit, now I have to spend even more time with that bastard lock. Glad you had fun with her.

  12. What an innovative idea! I'll shop around for some magnets of the right size because I would LOVE to see the innards of this thing. It was an awesome pick!

  13. If you take round magnets the diameter of the plug you can use them as a multi part plug follower. If you take the circlip off the back of one, insert key, turn the plug a bit and pull it out just a little bit you can remove the black rotating part. Then put the magnets in the gap 1 by 1 as you pull out the plug.
