DIY Lock Pick Set

Here's another very interesting post on lock-picking, like making a padlock shim out of soda can: How to make your own lock-picking tools from a windshield wiper. Of course, the skills that come with it, plus the ethics of when it's acceptable to use it, are just as important (if not more).

After you've picked that up, try a copy of Practical Lock Picking: A Physical Penetration Tester's Training Guide or The Complete Book of Locks and Locksmithing.

It is interesting post. lock picking is a skill that takes a practiced touch. Every commercial location and every consumer can potentially be the victim of a technique of opening locks known as bumping.

A lock pick set /kit usually consists of picks and tension wrenches.The tension wrench, often called a torque wrench, is used to apply torque to the plug of a lock; in order to hold any picked pins in place. Once all pins are picked, the tension wrench is then used to turn the plug and open the lock.
