Opening procedure and important tips to follow:

Clean the lock with some light oil spray such as WD40 to ensure free lock wafers movement!

To discover the lock orientation you need to use your turbodecoder tool. Insert it after the turbo wheel was rotated to the right and the pin activator wheel is pushed all to the front! Take the decoder for the ring on the pin activator wheel and insert it carefuly in to the lock. Not necessary to force strong the tool , it will enter if the lock is in good mechanical conditions. Now pull back only the pin activator wheel and apply rotational force on the tension wheel to the left. In that moment start to rotate the turbo wheel to the left also and feel the rotation, it will be easy with no resistance and in some point you will feel a resistance on it. note where is it line pointed in the moment of the resistance begining. IF the line of the turbo wheel is before the first stop sector – your orientation is good and you can start the opening procedure. If that line is after the first stop sector please turn the turbo wheel all to the right , push to the front the in activator wheel and extract the decoder from the lock, reverse it and insert again. Now your tool is correctly orientated.

To open the lock please pull back the pin activator wheel , force the tension tool to the right and rotate the turbo wheel to the left till it line match to the first stop sector. Turn back the turbo wheel at the initial postion – all to the right. Loose the tension force on the tension wheel and check the lock. Now apply the force to the left on the tension wheel and repeat the rotation with the turbo wheel up to stop sector 1. Go back with it and loose the tension. Repeat those steps for 20 times.


If the lock is not open please increase the rotatuing of the turbo wheel to the second stop point. all the rest is the same. only stop point is changed from 1 to 2.

Do that for next 20 times and if no result – do all but stop at the sector 3 for 20 more times.

In some moment uthe lock must be opened. Usualy we open the locks in second stop sector but off course that depend of the operator abilities or fo the lock code configuration.
