    seven pin, eight carn lock...

    I need to translate this sentence and I don't understand the meaning of the underlined part. Can you help?

    You managed to escape my fail-safe holding cell - a titanium alloy, seven pin, eight carn lock with three layers of redundancy.

    What is "seven pin" and "eight carn lock with 3 layers of redundancy"?

    Thanks a lot!

    I can't help you, I'm afraid, but I think you might mean eight cam lock. Check your source. If I am right, this might be helpful for people who know more about locks than I.
