    Default Bramah challenge padlock

    While in the Science Museum in London I took this picture of the Bramah Challenge padlock. The lock originally had 18 slides and a single spring, however after it was picked by Hobbs it was converted to 13 steel, false notched slides each independantly sprung. In it's current form I am quite sure Hobbs would not have been able to defeat it.
