Perhaps no other lock picking tool is surrounded in as much mystique as Skeleton Keys. They crop up in literature and the movies all the time. But what are they? And how do you use a skeleton key? 

A Skeleton key is any key designed to open more than one lock. Normal keys tend to fit one lock and that is that. But a Skeleton Key is designed to open many locks of its type. Using various techniques, and clever manufacturer, this range of Skeleton keys will help the beginner wishing to learn how to pick locks, and the professional who needs to open a wide range of locks in their daily work. 

Skeleton keys do not require a tension tool and offer you, the lock picker another excellent technique to add to your repertoire. That's why locksmiths have a variety of tools for each lock type - to ensure entry when it's essential. We have a great range of Skeleton Key options, including many exclusives, designed and manufactured by us. Have you got any in your closet?

You'll notice that we have included the Polaris Rake set in this collection - and that's because even professional locksmiths recommend it to get through many, many different types of locks.
