Lock Picks

Your first experience with lockpicking

    Well all basic lock picks are is just shaped bits of metal.
    So there is no reason that they should be stupidly expensive. Obviously quality varies with price.
    It will take aroun 7-14 days (depending where you live and on customs checking time aswell as postal infrastructure at the time) after being sent.

    i bought this cheaper pick-set and i unlocked all my locks (had it for about 1month now) and got all my locks in about 30mins or less (6-8 padlocks)

    For all beginners out there (incl me :P) search in youtube for videos and similiar how locks works and look inside, in that way u will understand the whole thing alot better and it will become much easier to get started in this. About tension wrenches a good and very easy way to make em is with some "steel blades(?)" that is avalible in wind-screen wipers and they work way better then paperclips etc.

    Hope this will help some of you guys out there, btw i ordered the KLOM pick set the other day and i dont doubt that they will help me getting better in this hobby.

    A good tut film is the "Lockpicking for the New Millennium" that helped me alot :)

    regards

    wow maersk I'm pretty sure a locksmith could open a 6 pin lock otherwise that would be a really crappy locksmith.

    @Pepsi.
    Well how many locksmiths do you know, that opens 6 pins?
    Normally they just drill the lock.

    As I wrote, it is pretty difficult. And why stand for half an hour, using your pickgun, if it takes 5 min. to drill and 5 min. to replace the lock. Using just a rake or diamondshaped pick would take forever, unless you have a lot of traning. And most don't.

    Can't wait for my Klom 31 piece set to come.
    Was sent out on 13th and HK mail said it shipped out of Hong Kong on the 17th, so in about a weeks time I should have it. :)

    My Klom set came today :D
    Found out it's actually a 32 piece set plus tension wrenches.
    Will have closer look at them tomorrow.
