You peaks are 2 high. It looks like it was built to hang up in the lock. Spread the valleys out and lower the peaks.

I know it doesn't look right, but make them look like the pics.

And...all of your o's are capital O's.
Bump first and ask questions later.

Bring the peaks down, as skip said, and also reduce the angle of the faces of the peaks. With such sharp angles you risk it getting stuck in a dirty and/or worn lock and reduce the efficiency of the key.
