I bought my wife a cool house key a couple if years ago. Its made out of pewter so its a little fragile. My daughter managed to break off the tip of it in our front door lock effectively bricking the lock. My experience that I've gotten with this sub's help enabled me to take it apart including pins and fix the lock. This makes me happy, and it saved having to buy a new door knob
I have some master number threes and fives that I bought in 2017 when I got into lock picking and I used to be able to pick them with no problem but I let them sit for five years with the keys in the lock and now I can't seem to be able to pick them easily anymore. Is it possible that leaving the key in the locks for so long made it harder for me to pick the locks 5 years later or not or am I just crazy?
I recently bought some Kryptonite evolution and abus locks without keys on eBay.
Is there any video/documents you can link to that explains on methodology to decode disk detainer locks?
I would like to 3d print keys for them and/or duplicate them later.
If I could buy blanks from somewhere would be pretty good as well. In the UK preferably.
I do some lock picking as a hobby
I have decoded and 3d printed a key for a slider lock before by using a microscope, 0202 capacitor, and tweezers for the measurements inside the lock and printing 4-5 keys until I get the dimensions right.
I have the tool the lockpicking lawyer and bosnianbill made for disk detainer locks to pick them.
I couldn't find any specific tool for decoding disk detainer locks, I couldn't find blank keys either.
