Hello Agent X
Raking is a lock picking technique that takes the work and effort out of single pin picking. Rather than deal with all the pins individually, Raking works them all simultaneously, meaning it's ideal for beginners, and will get results, fast.
As with normal lock picking the tension wrench is inserted first, and a little (very light) pressure applied. This causes a little 'ledge' to appear inside the lock. We call this the 'shearline'. Lock Picking relies on getting the split pins in the lock to rest on the shearline.
Once the tension tool is inserted with a small amount of pressure, the rake is inserted. From there, there's a variety of ways of 'raking' the lock. In the video below I look at two of the many Raking techniques available.
In a future blog I'll look at some other raking techniques, but in the meantime don't be afraid to experiment yourself. With a set of rakes and some locks you'll be surprised how quickly you can become excellent!
Watch these two Raking techniques, and give it a go! You'll definitely surprise yourself.
