    Trying to figure out how this is supposed to be mounted, because it really looks like you are supposed to have the mounting screws exposed... If so this can't be a safety lock but a function lock.

    The problem is that it isn't a lock, it not suppose to keep anything lock away, all is does is prevent someone from activating something by accident, it suppose to pop the key back out unless you are putting pressure on it when it has been installed, you hold the key in the on position and press the button, usually for industrial compactors and shredders, the kind where a person could fall inside, I used a similar one for compacting the empty 55 gallon drums of raw materials.

    The lock isn’t that good because in a production plant you are just trying to limit access to certain operators, not trying to stop criminals. It’s not really it’s intended use.

    These locks are actually more often than not used in a key exchange system, a solenoid operated unit exists as part of a machines electrical safety circuit and the safety architecture determines when the key can be released, that key is then removed and used to either exchange for a guard key (where multiple keys are released by that master key simultaneously) or used to open a single guard.

    as a user of this, merely turning it will do nothing. The key HAS to be inside for the contacts to be actuated. Moreover, you can't really pull out the key if it's on. I mean.. you CAN... but you just destroyed the lock... The use of this is NOT for lock-out tag out. It's for local sequence operation. For exemple, if you have an hydraulic pump that needs to be shut down, you have the technician shut down the pump by turning the key OFF, remove the key from the PUMP lock, place it in the Accumulator Discharge Valve Bypass Power ON lock, turn it on to release and discharge pressure. It becomes impossible to do one and the other at the same time. That's the idea behind this product.

    ive seen these on the gates around robot arms and other automated equipment in its own area. Basically if you have the key they can't shut the interlock and thus can't restart the machinery. the key stays in the lock and is only removed when entering the operational area

    if it is for industrial use, especially with that kind of built, normally (not always) it is merely to prevent accidental or spontaneous abuse. not to guard against trained and intentional picking.

    To start the launch sequence for a Titan II ICBM launch required two keys, ~ 15 feet apart, to be turned within 2 seconds of each other. Thus it didn't matter what kind of keys they were since they couldn't be turned together by one person. (unless you were a BMAT, then a 6" wire with clips on the ends were attached to a terminal block that bypassed the launch keys...) Also the keys were kept in a red safe, with two pad locks that only the two launch officers had the combo for and both officers were armed. Later in the use of the Titan II, there was a electronic lock on the stage one oxidizer feed that could only be unlocked by a code not kept on site. Once that lock onboard the missile was installed, no one was going to launch the missile without that code. Retired BMAT, 784 alerts under Kansas.

    Generally these locks are not actually locks as in protecting valuables. The idea is in order to remove the key you have to turn it off (rotate it) this turns off the equipment it is protecting, isolating it. You then use the same key to open the equipment to work on we're it then locks into place until the equipment is closed again, when the key can be removed. Each key being unique to an item of equipment.

    OK, what if we make a lock with an electronic shield blocking the pins and the key has NFC, so you need the nfc tag + physical key to open at the same time.. that would probably be somewhat tricky for LPL.. It couldn't be defeated totally by hacking or by lock picking and the nfc thingy in the chamber would make it hard to pick around even if you somehow got that part down.

    We use keys like this at work to shut off a robot arm if you need to go inside the cage to fix something. The robot is off when the key is out so picking this lock makes it possible to get smacked in the head by a big robot.

Would a lock with a cover that you need to hold open, or some other thing that required multiple fingers to hold make trying to pick the lock significantly harder just because you only have two hands?

    Castell interlocks are not used for security, they are operation safety locks. Idea is that with a dangerous part of a machine unlocked/open the machine cannot be started (you have two locks and only one key which is held in the unlocked lock). Still interesting to see one picked.
