ChastiKey Chat / Re: Combination changed from 12 digits to 10?
« on: November 30, 2020, 07:57:56 AM »
On my phone it shows 12 still.

Thanks. 8)

I took a second look at my settings and found I had "Allow duplicate characters in the combination"... turned off.  ::)

ChastiKey Chat / Combination changed from 12 digits to 10? - (Resolved)
« on: November 29, 2020, 06:22:37 PM »
I could have sworn the number of digits in the combination was previously maxed out at 12 digits/characters. It's now just 10. Is there any possibility it can be set back to 12?

Oh, thanks for the tips!

You're most welcome.

As a newbie keyholder, I would recommend playing around with combinations of the various cards and settings in test locks to get a feel for how the cards interact and to get a feel for how probabilities and odds work in practice.

 In my experience, the Sticky cards are the most difficult to reliably predict the length of time the lock will run. With Sticky cards, what may initially appear to be very reasonably odds of escape can occasionally turn into a unexpectedly long lock.

This is my first lock. I have played many times (and am currently locked), but I wanted to try sharing a lock.

This is a variable lock with 0-100 freeze cards, 0-100 reset cards, and only 1 green card. Tries every 15 minutes, cumulative.

Give it a try, and let me know what you think.

The Reset cards in your lock are non-functional as they don't reset Freeze cards, and you only have one Green card - so it wouldn't be of any consequence there either.

If you wanted to make the Reset card(s) functional, you'd need to add a batch of (I'd recommend 20ish.) Green cards. I'd suggest keeping the Freeze cards, adding maybe a 2-5 Reset cards, and adding 20 Green cards.

ChastiKey Chat / Re: Feature to help forget combinations.

You may want to try using a lock-out hasp and spreading a 12 digit combination across multiple locks.

Personally, I use a Master Lock Word lock and I use a chart to convert the numbers from the app to the letters my lock uses.

General Chat / Interesting 12 Character Cryptex Lockbox
« on: October 16, 2020, 08:18:19 PM »
I stumbled across this on Etsy. This expensive as it ships from Spain. ($52 + $75 Shipping to U.S. = $128)

This just may be the solution for those having difficulty forgetting combinations as it can be ordered with the 12 characters that the Chastikey app can provide. The combination is changeable.

 Is anyone currently using something like this or something similar?

There are other (cheaper) versions available that use numbers instead of letters and fewer (up to 7) wheels. ($25 with shipping.)

I also viewed another inferior version on Amazon ($30), but it uses a single locking pin so it would be a much easier lock to defeat.

ChastiKey Chat / Re: Increasing card caps
« on: April 30, 2020, 04:11:44 PM »
To be honest the 15 minute draws was never created for long locks. Yes it could be increased so that you could play for a year like a daily draw but would you really want to be drawing every 15 minutes for a year?

You haven't said how much you want them increased by

Thanks Keven,

I was thinking an increased card cap could be tied to the trusted keyholder option and/or it could be it's own separate option? The increase could also be tied to having both the trusted keyholder and cumulative options selected?

I'd suggest upping the red and yellow cards each to 800 or 900 for the number of cards that can be in play. The increased card counts would reduce the blunting of double up cards, allow for longer locks for intermediate to advanced users and increase the jeopardy and mind fuck factor capability for keyholders.

The initial settings caps are fine in my opinion.

Hello everyone - I'm new here and was hoping for a little help to get started. I'm already locked in a cage. I do have an electronic safe and a long distance keyholder that has downloaded the app onto her phone.

Is there a way to pair my safe to the app on her phone so that the key can be locked in it and so the safe can only be opened through the app on her phone?

Thank you in advance,

QC

No, there is currently no way to "pair" the app with your safe.

After loading a lock shared from your keyholder, you'll have to reset the combination on your safe to the combination provided by the app.
