DIY Kit of the legendary Silver Bullet disc detainer pick. These include the standard tips that the metal handle ones have, but include 3D printed handles. This is the assembled and tested version.
- Rear Tension
- Highly visible markings in a 360 around handles
- High strength tool steel pick tips
- Designed for nearly every central Disc Detainer (DD) lock. Generally any centrally designed DD lock where the tips fit, the SB can pick it. The shape of the tensioner and tips have evolved very slightly over several years to pick the widest range of locks
- Abloy Disklock (non-Pro)
- Abus+ Cores (all current generations)
- Kryptonite (Evolution Mk2, Evolution Mk3, Fahgettaboudit “New-U”, Series 2)
- HSS Gerda
- Baton (central design)
- IFAM High Security (central design)
- Soho and MANY other Chinese DD locks
- 1x Tool Steel Pick Tip
- 1x Rear Tension Tip
- 1x 3D Printed Front Handle – attaches to Pick Tip
- 1x 3D Printed Rear Handle – attaches to Tension Tip
- 4x Brass Threaded Inserts – M3
- 4x Alloy Steel Set Screws – M3 – knurled tip for extra grip
Some Assembly Required (will be a video):
- Use a soldering iron or other hot implement to heat the brass inserts and sink into printed handles
- Cleanup excess melted plastic that may be in front of inserts
- Sand handle mating surfaces if desired – not required but makes feedback better
- Screw Tips in place
- Feel movement and if any parts bind, minor adjustment of set screws may be needed
- If you want crazy tension or picking, you can file flats onto tension rod or pick tip where the set screws mate. This isn’t suggested, as some slip is nice to have in case of over-tensioning. However preference on pick style does allow it!
- (Optional) Make your own handles! 99% of the price here is all in the tips design and manufacturing. The 3D printed handles are functional, but can be massively improved by making your own handles out of metal or wood or other material you can work. The STL is not public, however you are free to generate your own design and 3D print more precisely!
- Free of manufacturing defects that affect performance.
- Not free of minor surface scratches or defects – As 3D printing is not a perfect process, the handles won’t be perfect, but they will function and can be improved by sanding the mating faces.
