More toys from Portugal

These arrived today. Filipe says that two are typical Portugese locks, the other is a VITO, and he is not sure if it is Portugese or not.

On the left is a Teicocil 4 pin lock. Both sides seem to flinch and open the moment I put one of Rai's Bogotas into it. Literally 2-3 seconds per side max. At first, I thought it was an accident. Not much longer SPP. Bit it is fun, and is the first euro-profile my son has succeeded in picking. The middle lock is a 5 pin Vito. I would equate this to a typical Kwikset here in the United States. (Not SmartKey). The last one is a 5 pin AGC. The key on one side says AGC, on the other Rio Meão. It does have a couple spools and as you can see, it has a deep cut for the first pin. It was the most fun of the locks to pick.

Thanks, Filipe!

Re: More toys from Portugal

The cuts are a little hard to see but it looks like the first two are keyed with almost the same depth on every pin. Hence the easy pick.

Exactly. I've had a 5pin Teicocil with an extreme hi-lo bitting, which was actually very difficult to pick. Not too difficult though :mrgreen:
Go ahead, keep plugging away, picking on me! You will end up on bypass or with rigor mortise.
