Medeco Bottom Pin

Medeco (non-Biaxial) bottom pin. The V-shaped bottom (at right) allows the key to rotate the pin so that the sidebar notch (across the lower half of the pin in this image) is lined up with the sidebar fingers. Note the other security features: the serration near the pin's top (at the right here) and the shallow false sidebar notch running along the length of the pin (across the center here). These locks are very difficult to pick.

Image taken with a Nikon D-100 digital camera with the 85mm f/2.8 macro PC shift/tilt lens, attached to a PB-6 bellows and tripod mount. Note that this image is not color-corrected.
