Bicycle Alley says:

I tried picking the Bell Catalyst 200 U-lock using the Bic pen hack, but I couldn’t pick the lock open. The picking difficulty for a lock can vary with the length and combination of pins used in the lock cylinder, and that pin combination is called the lock Bitting. Its possible some of you have a bitting where all the pins are close to the same size. This might make it easier to pick the lock using a Bic pen. Also, make sure we are all on the same page and talking about the same lock. Over the years Bell has sold different model Catalyst U-locks and they don’t all use the same lock cylinders.

WeTheTech says:

That locking key mechanism is easily exploited using a pen. You should not trust this lock.

I’ve picked these with a bic pen.. Mine eventually seized up on me and I chucked it. Definitely low security but this was a great deterrent and fit in my back pocket comfortably.
