THE WORLDWIDE CHALLENGE!

Hello, as you notice I have first prototype of my Polish Combination Lock mechanism 3D printed and inserted in padlock. 

I claim that this is  100% uncrackable mechanism and there is no one around the world that will be able to open it without any tools to damage or destroy it.

I can send you on my own cost this 3D printed padlock from my video for real review and show it on your YouTube Channel. Then after review you should send it back to me for next attempt from next person. You can only manipulate and not destroy or defect the mechanism by any tool just use your skills and fingers.

The try should be within one week from receiving my package. You should make real and honest review and you should confirm that you open it by showing this in front of camera, you are not allowed in case you succeed to change the code setting by me prior to send it to you.

The rules of this CHELLENGE summary:

(new rules after 17.03.2019 : no minimum number of Subscribers required anymore and I have a right now to reject any participant request).

  1. You need to have your own YouTube Channel and minimum 5 000 Subscribers. (I have only one prototype to send therefore I need well recognised people).
  2. You send me by e-mail request for this Challenge, my e-mail is polishlocks@tlen.pl
  3. In your request please send me the address for delivery and your YT channel link for verification that you are really you ;). In order to do it you should after my approval of your request mention on your channel that you will participate in this Challenge.
  4. After this confirmation I will on my own cost send you this lock for your review and attempt to open it.
  5. You should make and publish your review video  in one week after receiving it. This is the time you can play with it and try to open. 
  6. During all time you have it you should not damage it or destroy or use any tool that can damage it, this is important because I like to use it few times for this Challenge. Please do not use too much force this is just plastic model and can be broken.
  7. If you will not be able to open it you will request by e-mail the correct combination and I will send you the correct code to let you open it and make review which must be honest. The correct code will be publish as well here on this page.

  11. The Challenge is worldwide and everyone who agree with those conditions is more than welcome. 
  12. Final HINT: Do not pay too much attention to publish 3D model , I have multiple sets of wheels with different deep cuts gates so you should not rely only on CAD analysis but rather on your real skills.
  13. I have right to reject any request.

If you have any questions just send me an e-mail. polishlocks@tlen.pl

The list of accepted participants:

  1. Potti314 from this YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSCUS_rVVks_NKookFW9m4A

02.JAN.2019 – The package is delivered to Potti314, the 7 days Challenge begins.

03.JAN.2019Potti314 suggests to add clicker for better operation, it is now added in download section. This is very important upgrade for easier operation, clicker is stopping all wheels while you turn only one (easier way to set up the code).

23.JAN.2019 just few minutes ago (14:44) LockTube asked for correct code. This Challenge is over. Thank you LockTube very much for your attempt to open my lock mechanism. You are great and your review is awesome.

Time to finish the Challenge:  DONE

Outcome: The lock is NOT DECODED.

Correct code: 7, 20, 6, 15, 16

25.JAN.2019 LockTube made final video: opening, disassembly, assembly and final remark. You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0_6P2k84nQ

Thank you LockTube for all your valid feedbacks and great effort to open my lock.

I am waiting for next participant however I think that the lock is so secure that no one else will take the challenge. I think all possible decoding options were used up to now.

Very valid feedback both from Potti314 and LockTube:

In the full metal version the false gates on the internal wheels will be differently cut (now all gates are at the same depth). It would eliminate the decoding attack or make it so hard to do, much harder than now.
