2: Number of codes for 5- and 6-pin locks with 9 and 10 pin sizes, taking both MACS and additional constraints into account. 44 CHAPTER 2 PIN-TUMBLER LOCKS differ by three depths in at least one position. 6 One would surmise that the requirement that all codes must differ by at least two sizes would approximately divide the number of codes by two. However, this is only the case if we consider differences in a single bitting position. As an example of the effect of the preceding requirement, we take a 5-pin system with a MACS of 3.

13. 13: Terminology and positional conventions used for pin-tumbler lock cylinders. ) In this orientation, the bottom of the keyway is at 6 o’clock, the right side of the cylinder at 3 o’clock, and the left side at 9 o’clock. The 12 o’clock direction is referred to as up and the 6 o’clock as down. Directions toward or away from the central axis of rotation of the plug are called radially inward and outward, respectively. Directions along the axis are called longitudinal or axial. Along the longitudinal axis, the direction toward the front of the lock is called forward, and the direction toward the rear is called aft.

8: Master-ring cylinder from E. J. O’Keefe’s 1889 US patent 414,720. Pins aligned at outer shear line (left) and at inner shear line (right). a multiplicity of operating keys results. The effect on the number of operating key combinations is multiplicative. Thus a 5-pin cylinder with a single master pin in chambers 1, 2, and 3 yields 2 × 2 × 2 = 8 possible keys, all of which operate the lock. This may be good or bad, depending on the requirements of the MK system in terms of the number of levels and the number of change keys required at each level.
