If you want to be a nice person you can click below to help fund the purchase of more locks and picks and help further my testing as I only have a few locks because they are a bit pricey sometimes. It will also help stop me from becoming homeless when I get out of the navy in April.

Some of my locks(from left to right): Master DG (US set), VingCard mortise cylinder, American lock series 5200 (US set), Medeco Biaxial mortise cylinder, Abloy Protec PL330, Kwikset deadbolt cylinder, Master #1, Schlage deadbolt cylinder. I have working keys to every lock I own so far except the VingCard, one of my Master #3's, and the American. On a side note these are only the locks I take to work on a daily basis, I have a lot more Masters since that is all I can buy on base. I also have a few other non-master locks not pictured.

I am slowly making progress on my exploit of the Abloy Protec. I lost the spring that compresses the cylinder to keep all the internals in place but a new one should be here soon. I plan on getting the rest of the parts to construct my pick/decoder sometime soon. I have already made the actual pick tip.

On the Medeco Biaxial I am up to 4 pins without the side bar. Soon I will be adding the 5th pin but I am not quite that good yet. The American is still kicking my ass but every time I pick it up I learn a little bit more about it and the serrated pins the only problem being is with that lock I get frustrated so I can only work on it for a few minutes at a time before I have to set it aside for a confidence lock.

August 10th, 2009 I emailed Abloy's US office to inform them of this possible exploit. As of right now I plan to keep the page with the exploit password protected until November 10th, 2009. This is to give them a chance to investigate and fix the it. I reserve the right to keep it protected longer though if they get a hold of me and talk to me about the exploit and need a little bit more time to implement a fix. I will only give the password to people I know and trust and anyone with access to the Lockpicking 101 advanced area.

As of September 10th still no word from Abloy about the exploit.
