Both locks are pretty much identical, with the exception of anti-drilling inserts - FAB 2** has no anti-drill elements. Also FAB 3*** comes with the identification card, which is only a convenience, because blanks for both are freely available. Both locks have six pin chambers, but the first chamber is left empty. Other than that, everything is identical to the FAB 3*** Profi.

Disassembly instructions

The core has two groves for the cam clutch at 3 and 9'o clock positions, that would allow driver to jump out before the follower would hold it. Pinning shoe can be handy, although you have to count with the stronger springs and smaller pin diameter. Segmented follower can be used for the double euro format too.
