Some of you might be wondering how to deal with the new kind of lock mechanism, well when you encounter a new kind of lock mechanism, try turning the plug/key in both directions. In the correct direction, the plug/key will be stopped by the pins, so the stop will feel mushy when you use heavy torque. In the wrong direction the plug will be stopped by a metal tab, so the stop will feel solid.Try to feel for the click that happens when a pin reaches the sheer line and the key rotates slightly. That is the point when you need to have all your senses working well, just rotate the plug slightly and hopefully you will hear a happy click.

NIce...You certainly made a good point...That's the information that would be really helpful to all...Having all your senses working is not just important in picking a lock but for everyday life as well...Thanks for the post!

At first if you talk about locks you can't say that lock will provide better security once you come to know more about locks and keys you will experience which one is good for a particular door.Like i doesn't know much about remote car keys but after coming into the business of locksmith i come to know how to make and repair such keys.So, it's difficult for the newbie to lock pick, by the time newbie will come to know the whole about it.
