  • Nice tool

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Build quality is quite good, nearly all the important parts are made of metal.

    - additional spare part (pick holder+screws) included

    - battery capacity is enough for a lot of locks

    - you can adjust the strength

    - overall: works good, a skilled user should be able to open most locks in less than 10s

    Cons:

    - each pick is included only once, even the most important (flat) one.

    - only one tension wrench included

    - the bayonet like mount of the heads has sharp edges, each time you change the head you will chip off a little plastic.

    - the eccentric on the motor is made of plastic, looking at it after some hours of use I think this will be the first part that fails.

    OtherThoughts:

    I really would appreciate if DX would offer replacement parts, especially the picks.

    Bottomline:

    Dont expect this thing to be some kind of magic lock opener.

    I was quite good at picking locks manually and with bump keys before, but I must admit it took some time before I could use this gun.

    You should also get a dedicated lock rather than practicing with your front door, electronic pick guns will always leave a lot of traces or might even damage the lock.
