Want to know what all the hype is about lock pick guns?
Essentially, there are three types of pick gun. And they aren't actually guns - they are just a kind of power tool. Through clever technological application of a vibrating motor, they're particularly good at jiggling the pins in locks so you very often reach a configuration that allows you to open them without a key. Why do you need this if you have manual lockpicks? Well, in the same way that having more picks gives you access to more types of picking, and having more types of picking allows you a greater range of options for success ... this is just the same. When you don't want to damage and replace the entire door, hinges or whatever else - lock picking is always the first primary method we choose.
Another versatile tool that again further improves the probability that you open a lock without having to cut it out expensively, or damage whatever door the lock is holding closed.
There are three types of pick gun:
We'll be introducing just the fully automatic electric pick gun here, but you can read about or browse the rest on lockpickWorld.

One of the most frequent questions we are asked is “What’s the best set for a beginner?” That question was finally answered for the last time when designing the Serenity set. An introductory lock pick set needs to be punchy, compact, no-nonsense and high quality. These are the core defining qualities of this set.
But more – we wanted to make a beginner lock pick set that didn’t need to be replaced, one that would last well into the future. There’s no reason a starter set needs a shelf-life. The Serenity lock pick set offers an affordable popular and professional collection of useful lock pick tools and wrenches picked out specially for you.
Just add a Clear Training Lock and you can get started instantly.

Peterson's lock picks are known for their attention to detail, especially the small differences in the picking surface that can make all the difference. The angle of the cut, the curve of the neck - when using Peterson picks you know they have been designed by people who pick locks.
This was Peterson's first offering of slender government steel picks to allow working within narrow key ways. Based on their thinness they kept them at a standard profile for strength.
This set of Peterson's 0.015" picks contains 5 of Peterson's most popular profiles. The perfect addition to any pick set. Just slip them in with your favourite set and instantly make it a superior set. Tough as nails and laser precise.
