Welcome to guided series of picking and decoding the BMW HU100R door lock using the Genuine Lishi pick and decoder Vol.2. For more information, take a look at Vol.1 of the picking and decoding the BMW HU100R door lock guide.
Picking the HU100R Lock
The picking process and rules are identical to that of the Vauxhall HU100 lock. We begin by ensuring both the lift arms are centred on the tool and fully insert this into the lock. We can confirm full insertion by feeling a spring and a wafer in both positions one and eight.
Once inserted, we apply only a very light tension to the tension handle in the opening direction, normally clockwise in the UK. We then navigate to each position in turn and gently lift each wafer a fraction. If the wafer has movement we leave it alon , we are only interested in solid binding wafers. Each time we find a solid binding wafer we pick it until movement is felt again – normally a tight slapping bounce which confirms a set wafer. Once all binding wafers are picked, the lock will open.
So, with our tool fully inserted in the lock and a light tension applied in the opening direction we are ready to navigate and pick the solid binding positions.
Position one is the first to bind and pick.
Position six is the next to bind and pick.
Position eight is the next to bind and pick.
Position five is the next to bind and pick.
Position seven picks next and the lock opens.
What is significant is that we didn’t need to pick positions two, three or four which confirms to us that these are all number 4 key cuts and already preset by the tool, so they don’t need picking. We have the lock picked to the open position, we now hold it via the tension arm in the picked open position.
