LockCon 2019 – lever lock picking

The lever lock picking championship has been part of LockCon for a few years now, thanks to Jord who set it up. This year, our friends from Italy brought with them a setup for a competition including locks in nice stands and tools to open them. The locks needed to be picked 4 times, for a full 360 degree turn. LEDs on top showed the progress.

There were 29 participants. In the first round, people needed to do one opening on one lock. The fastest 16 went on to the semifinals. Four groups of 4 would get 5 minutes per each of 4 locks. The best of each group, plus the best runner-up then participated in the final.

Impressioning Italian style

The final score was as follows:
1. Julian
2. Alex
3. Christian
4. Torsten
5. Nigel

Since Julian would rather not be in the picture, we include a picture of Alex getting prizes from Jos
