The NF2 (or 111/9) is a SKG**-rated pin-tumbler lock made by Nemef. It is resistant to manipulation, key bumping, and drilling. Nemef claims the NF2 to be the best-selling security cylinder in the Netherlands.

Principles of operation

See also: Pin-tumbler (Principles of operation)

The lock contains six pin stacks. Its most distinctive feature is the use of multiple diameter keypins, which together with a special warding causes the key pin tips at rest aren't at the same level (sometimes referred to as "shadow drilling"). These features provide additional resistance to key bumping attacks. The pin stacks alternate between serrated and spooled drivers, but due to the way the key pins rest in the chambers, the spools effectively engage only when paired with three shortest key pins. All of the drivers have slightly tapered tips. The warding is not very restrictive and the keyway itself is not paracentric.

Disassembly instructions

To disassemble a double euro cylinder, use of a pinning shoe is the preferred method.

Other possibility is to use a segmented follower, but that requires that both cores are pulled out a bit to allow a cam removal. Then a core should be rotated to approximately 4:30 or 7:30 o'clock position (135 degrees either clockwise or anti-clockwise) to prevent driver entering a gaps for the cam clutch. Then a segmented follower can be used to remove the core.
