Basic operation of Magnetic lock involves the principle that like poles of a magnetic repel each other, while opposite poles repel. A magnetic lock then does not have pins, but magnets (which are often behind a plastic “roof” on the keyway).
These locks may be activated either by a flat, notchless key, or by use of a magnetic card, where in the lock actually uses a two dimensional arrangement of magnets. These are not too common, but can be found in some installations.
You are going to learn to open the Magnetic lock, which is one of the recent innovation to the security world.
