Have you ever thought, "Just what is it that actually allows us to pick a lock?" It is the inability of the manufacturer of any product to machine parts to an almost flawless level of tolerance. Even if they could reasonably approach their goals, the expense alone would be astronomicaL
Therefore, we, as locksmiths, are able to pick a lock, so to speak, due to the reality of this situation. To see specifically what is involved, we must look at a typical cylinder.

The tolerance inadequacies to which I refer can be categorized for easy reference. The first is the difference between the plug and the shell. An acceptable amount of

The process by which the keyway is "cut" into the plug is called broaching. This process is easily observed when

a blank or cut key is inserted in the keyway and "play" is felt due to a significant tolerance differential.
Probably the most significant problem of this sort is the

kosong atau memotong kunci dimasukkan ke dalam alur pasak dan "bermain" dirasakan karena adanya toleransi diferensial.
Mungkin yang paling signifikan masalah semacam ini adalah
