This high quality CNC-machined cutaway of an American 1100 lock beautifully displays the entire inner workings of the lock while remaining fully functional. The pin stacks and security pins are clear to observe as you operate the lock with its key. Also visible is the ball bearing locking mechanism and the shackle’s spring opening action.
Do not mistake this for one of the cheap cutaways found online — they often start with inferior locks and feature sloppy machining. This collector-grade lock is machined to perfection, and is meant to be a display piece for an aficionado, or a demonstration/teaching aid.
All cutaway machining was performed in the U.S.A.
