  • Introduction to hobbyist Lock picking Aka: LockSport

    Those are rather easy to unlock..Gently pull the lock from either end to add tension to the number rings, Each number ring is "notched" to a specific number, so just slowly turn each number wheel,while applying the tension, until you feel the position with the least amount of resistance, it should be at the correct setting to "unlock".. repeat for all numbers until it's unlocked...starting at the end of the lock body helps too versus starting at the end where the lock goes together. Thouh that's jsut my experience.It may take a bit to unlock. Also "wiggle" the ends of the lock by pushing them together and pullingat the ends of the lock.....as the number rings will sometimes wiggle as well, depending onif they're in a locked position or not. There's a reason...

There's a reason I don't use those kind of locks for my bikes...One lock I use has special keys, with angled laser cut teeth and the other uses a cylindrical keyway.
