Repinning an American 1305

For the past six months, I’ve been focused on a project I hope to share with everyone very soon. In the meantime I took a break a couple of days ago to work on building a progressive set of American 1305 locks – removing 1, 2, and 3 pins from these 5-pin locks. This set makes a great practice set for locksport folks – especially those who aren’t comfortable picking American locks and overcoming the strong spring tension needed to release the shackle. I decided to document this process on video – my first locksport-related YouTube video. Enjoy! Hopefully we’ll start having in-person meetups again soon and people can try picking these.
