I’ve finally picked this high security Brinks padlock I’ve been working at for a few days now!

I’ve always suspected that there were security pins in this lock, but never could tell exactly how many…until I watched this Picking a Brass Brinks Padlock video!

4 security pins??  I never would’ve guessed four, but knowing that helped a lot.  As well as knowing that the 2nd pin seems to always been the pin stack without the security pin.  So now I gotta re-pin some of my other locks…or get some new ones ;-)
