This is a mauer president fitted to a lock some distance away from Horsham. I attended the site hoping I had everything I may need to get this open and replace in the shortest possible time.
Using Jason Jones’ excellent president 2 in 1 pick I think I broke my personal record. The lock fell open. I had practiced solidly though and knew that a president lock was fitted to the safe. The practice paid off. I have a couple of tools for this lock and I spent longer creating a workspace for myself in a cramped stock room / managers office then I did actually opening the safe. The re-fit was quick and even with a second lock to open I had packed up and started on my way within an hour of arriving. Its the first safe I’ve put my new magnetic business cards onto. Its something I plan on doing on all jobs from now on as all my contact details are on one little card and unlike a sticker can be removed easily and put somewhere else if required.
Although I primarily cover M25 South to the coast I’m willing to travel pretty much any distance to do an opening.
