Picked: Fulton hitch lock

[caption id=”” align=”alignnone” width=”2560”] picked[/caption]

This is a weird, beat up lock I picked up for a buck or two at the thrift store in La Grande.    After opening the plug is rotated many turns to unscrew the hasp.  No problem if you have the key, but it would have to be picked many times in a row in an actual attack.  Every time the plug rotated the pins would unset themselves.  A plug spinner might help, but those are really made to get past the setpoint once.

After I SPP’ed it (single pin picked) I did some googling and it appears to be a trailer hitch lock.
