Jos wins the German impressioning championship

The German Impressioning Championships took place in Kassel, Germany on June 27th.

In the first round, Jos was the only one who managed to open their lock within an hour. Jos opened in 5 minutes and 20 seconds, which means that he is the champion and the trophy is back in the Netherlands.

The locks were, as always, Abus C83/73 cylinders. New this year was the use of special pins inside the locks. Here you see a few of them:

Jos is looking forward to the next international games, which will be held in Seattle, USA.

    Congratulations JOS and because no German could open their own ABUS locks after 15 years – congratulations to ABUS, too. Were there only four competitors on the German championship?

    Hi do you have an email I can reach you with? big thanks

  4. Wow, look at the serrated pins in that!

    Was this a cylinder or Padlock? I don’t see many Abus but they are usually very hard to open NDE
