Let's meet your new adversaries:
Rumor has it that The Devastator made it through three years of Harvard before washing out and turning his full attention to thwarting lock-pickers. He’s got spool pins in chambers 1 and 5, and has a serrated pin in chamber 3. (He’s still working on his undergrad degree at state college.)
Lock #1A: THE DEVASTATOR
To defeat The Devastator, the secret to picking these spool pins is getting the lock to a “false set” state (illustrated in the included guide). The serrated pins will try to prevent this but the false set is what you are looking for. The serrated pins will bind up as you apply tension with the tension wrench, so the key is light tension while picking.
Lock #2A: THE PUNISHER
The Punisher wants you to know one thing very clear: He’s not that guy from the Marvel comic books, and he doesn’t want another cease-and-desist letter. He’s just a lock. A lock that wants to punish you. If it makes your lawyers happy, then call him just “A Punisher” from now on.
This lock only has a spool pin in the first chamber, so you may be able to pick this without the spool pin going to the false set position. (Good!) But try to achieve the false set on this so you can practice unlocking the false set.
Lock #5A: THE PUNISHER IV: RUSSIAN JUSTICE
This lock is kinda ironic, in that Dolph Lundgren played both The Punisher in that 1989 movie, but he also played the bad-guy Russian boxer in Rocky IV. So it’s pretty weird that his spirit has been reincarnated as a hard-as-balls lock to pick , with a spool pin in chamber 1 and chamber 5, creating a more difficult version of lock #2a.
Good luck, and can’t wait to hear about your success and frustration.
