    As I posted in the other thread, I picked my first lock 2 minutes ago :D

    Cheap chinese "Tri-Circle" 4-disk lock, 20 seconds.

    The tension wrench tool that came with the 9-pick pack is way too big for smaller padlocks, so I had to make a tension wrench out of an hairpin.

    I just bent it 90 degrees and with a dremel made it thin enough.
    As it is quite flexible steel, and doesn't bend in a bad way, it's good for tension wrenches.

    DX should get some tension wrenches?

    >.< I can't wait anymore to get my set... It will take more than 2 weeks I guess, since the status is still on "Waiting for Supplier".

    Mine wasn't with any proper pick, it was with a home-made one. On a Padlock i had laying around, thought i'd give it a shot. I used a screwdriver as the tension wrench =P Was difficult but it worked haha

    Mine was as a kid i got one of those pathetic padlocks from a christmas cracker, I lost the keys very quickly so i figured out where the single catch to unlock it was and used a bent paper clip :P

    Have picked the lock on someones house when they got locked out before, though I had to improvise with bits of wire and a screwdriver, took over 45 minutes to do too.

    Picked a lot of locks, just for fun. Old worn out 5 pins dorlocks is fairly easy. New 6 pins is impossible. I also have a lockpick gun, which works ok allso. But even professional "pickers", dont open all locks. Often they drill it out.
    But resently I found out, that if you make a bumpkey, it makes MUCH easier access. The bumpkey lifts all pins at once, but on the downside you need a key, that fits the lock and make it the lowest setting possible.
    But after 5 trys on a brand new 6 pin lock, I even impressed a locksmith, that thought is was impossible.
