Lock Basic Structure:
So what does lock picking actually means?
Lock picking tools:
In order to mimic the key we will have to use a tool that will allow us to move the pins inside the lock’, up and down, like a key would, and eventually allowing the cylinder to rotate and opening the door. The Proper tools are lock picks, but they are expensive and you want to avoid ordering cheap ones on the internet because they tend to bend and break and even damage the lock (you can find a decent lock picks set for about 100$ if you are willing to invest). That is the main reason we mostly recommend calling for a professional locksmith who has the proper tools and the experience if you are locked out at this moment or if it is an emergency, An experienced technician can be on site in 25 minutes. Back to our business, there are a few other more amateur options when it comes to tools, You can use a paper clip or a bobby pin all versions of a tension wrench that will allow us to push the binding pin up and by that allowing the cylinder to begin rotating, we have to make sure to keep the right amount of tension so the pins we are trying to align won’t just pop back to their place preventing us from rotating the cylinder and unlocking the door. The amount of tension we use is the main factor in successfully picking a lock. If we use too much pressure the pins will bind below the centerline, If we don’t use enough tension the pins will simply fall back into their place. Achieving this sense for the tension wrench is the primary skill involved in lock picking.
