Picking Practice Recommendations:

Don't forget that practice makes perfect - and what better way to get started than to include a good selection of practice locks to go with your picks. This way, you'll be learn to better visualize the inside of the mechanism and be able to pick locks much more successfully.


Electric Lock Pick Guns - The fast way to pick locks?

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.

We know that the current most popular and recommended EPG is the German manufactured Kronos. There's a certain benefit to knowing that your automatic picking tool is made with reliable German craftsmanship and technology.

Quality, effectiveness and superior service - this matches perfectly with what LockpickWorld stands for and how we love interacting with you, our customers.

2. Best Lock Pick Set - Dangerfield Serenity Lock Pick Set


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.

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.
