But, when i went to the second lock, with pick set to the right marks, it would not open. I am afraid I have damaged the pins using the BIC pen method prior to getting the southord. When i look in, I do not see some of the pins.. maybe they have been pushed in and won't pop out now. This is discouraging, as I am so close. Thank you for all your encouragement. Not sure how to fix this mess.
Good job so far, you're getting better at this =)
The pins in the lock are harder than the material in the pen. Use a small slotted screwdriver, put it at 12 oclock in the slot cut into the plug, and quickly torque it back and fourth until all the pins reset and pop back out. Then the Southord can do it's thing.
Keep going, you're almost there!
