Oppan €uro Style

I hate picking Euro style. And I’m from Europe. So I figured the rest of the world should feel the pain too. So I made it so that this challenge lock could only be picked Euro Style. Also, beware using the bottom of keyway as leverage point…

Izzi Pizzi

Despite the apparent complexity of the pins and plug modifications, it was made to be “izzi”ly pickable by an intermediate challenge lock picker, and still be fun. Might be easier than what it was made to be, though…

I’m happy with the result: a crappy feeling lock with difficult feedback.

Springy Bast3rd

For me, making Challenge Locks is not only about making fun new challenges for other lockpickers, but also for testing and innovating new security ideas. Although not completely successful in all the ideas I wanted to integrate in this lock (and you’ll see why once you gut it), the main innovation I seeked to implement in this lock promises to change the way feedback is perceived. Springy Bast3rd will test your patience and resolve, more than your skill.
