Frequently Asked Questions
Firstly, remember the rules! Only pick what you own.
Car locks can be a bit different, it really depends on the model of vehicle.
For older vehicles normal picks will work, for anything a bit newer they use high security locks which need specially made tools for that make of car.
People often ask what set to go for when starting out with Lock Picking.
I’d suggest going for the intro set if you’re just getting into it. It is a bit easier to use the individual picks and the choice of tension wrenches should help greatly.
The pocket set is excellent for portability or just throwing in a bag for use whenever its needed, but it doesn’t offer the same level of “feel” as the individual picks.
It is pretty fun hobby and can be a good thing to impress your mates.
They do allow very quick entry without “getting to know” the lock like you would with standard picks. You do however need to get used to the tool with lots of practice, particularly if you’re not familiar with lock picking.
It still requires some skill. With experience Lock Pickers open most standard door locks with it in about 5-10 seconds however that was after an hour or two of practice.
The best technique is to line the needle so that it is touching all the pins in the lock then rapidly pull the trigger while providing a small amount of tension. It works like one of those newton’s cradle desk toys, bouncing the top part of pins up in unison, then you catch them on the way down through the application of tension.
For anyone concerned about these being used to break into buildings with a minimum of skill, don’t be. Pick guns are quite loud (not stealthy) and still take time to learn.
Like any good product there are clones on the market. We strictly stick to products we believe are good quality and fit for purpose.
Our Lock Pick sets are genuine from reputable US manufacturers, of course a clone doesn’t mean it is bad quality, we can’t really comment on the clones as we don’t use them ourselves. We can however say there is a lot of engineering, trail and error that goes into any good quality picks.
Found a cheaper price? We definitely don’t want to discourage people from finding other deals, so its always appreciated when this other stuff is pointed out!
