the book, Secrets of Lock Picking by Steven Hampton, minus the chapter on Lock picking means to open a lock by use of a flat piece of steel called a pick. A self teaching manual in the technique of lockpicking. For trade purposes only. Published by. Beckman Associates int. A DIVSION OF C.E.N. INDUSTRIES. In regards to the first question, learning how to pick locks is in fact a very This all being said, lock picking is still a skill and like any skill, mastery requires.

The final possibility is that the pins in the chamber are under pressure, but not bound up see Figure Simply continue the process of analyzing the condition of each chamber until they are all picked and the lock is opened. The pins wil not necessarily pick in their regular order.

By this, I mean that pin number 1 will not necessarily pick first. Perhaps, pin No. It is the fastest to use and the quickest to learn. The raking method will work in opening most cylinders where there is not a sudden change in pin sizes, such as a combina- tion of , where there is one long pin, one short 1 pin, one long pin, and so on.

Various types of key ways 25 FIGURE 22 Grooved ends, rigid tension tool Double-sided tension tool Twisted, flexible tension tool Various tension tools in position The tension tool and its use are the whole trick to raking or picking. Insert tension tool into the bottom of the keyway.

I stress the point: You must develop a light touch with the hand that ap- plies the tension. If tension is too heavy, the top pins will bind below the shear-line and will not allow the breaking-point to meet the shearline.

FIGURE 24 — Shear line - Top pins bind below the shear line when tension is too heavy 27 FIGURE 25 Light tension applied Now, with light tension applied, go through the raking operation, in slowly and out with a snap with upward pressure on the pins with the tip only. Release tension slowly so you can hear all the pins. If there is no sound, you were applying too little or too much tension, not allowing the breaking-point to bind at the shear-line.

With prac- tice, you will gain the right touch hi applying tension, and you will find that you can open most cylinders in a few rakings. I suggest you set up a cylinder with only a two pin combination to start with for practice. You should have the cylinder on a large mount, on a door, or held firmly in a vise.

Do not try holding the cylinder in your hand while raking it. After you have conquered the two pin combination, go on to a three pin and so on, until you can rake a six or seven pin cylinder. I have found 29 riuuitL xo Lock cylinder placed in vise that in some cylinders, where I have tried raking the regular tension and had no luck in opening them, I would then use a slight pulsating tension, but again— not too heavy.

You will find, in raking cylinders, some will open very easily, regardless of the pin combination. This is due to the poor construction of some cylinders.

As a rule, the lower the price of the cylinder, the easier it picks. The following characteristics are commonly found in low-priced cylinders; too much chamfer on the top of the bottom pin; die-cast plug and body with poor hole alignment; and, over-sized pin holes; too much clearance between plug and body.

Higher-priced cylinders are manufactured with much less clearance. Clearance between plug and body 32 plug.

The pin holes are drilled and reamed for a close fit with the pins and when the plug and body are drilled while together the hole alignment is excellent. But, in spite of the fine construction, you still can pick or rake it open.

It might take a little longer— it might take some adjustment in the tension— it may have to be picked in- stead of being raked, but you can do it. No matter how minute the clearances are, there are clearances, or the parts would not go together and this is what makes picking and raking possible.

At times you will come across a cylinder that you can not pick or rake in a reasonable length of time. Even the expert runs into these same problems. Do not become discouraged. Most locks can be picked or raked in a short time.

Do not waste hours working on an extremely difficult cylinder. You will soon be able to determine just how much time to spend on picking or raking a cylinder before resorting to other methods such as drilling. I have not gone into the handling of the tools. You will probably develop your own personal grip, but for my suggestions see Figure The most important thing to remember at this point, is that the tools must be comfortable in your hands.

I sug- gested at the start that you use a medium weight and length tension tool, but after you have been raking for awhile, you may prefer to try your skill with a light weight or rigid tension tool.

You will soon find which tool is best for you. As you apply tension to the plug, you will be working against the direct pressure of a spring which is used in the locking of the shackle and returning of the plug to the locked position, This lock will require more tension.

Use one of the rigid tools see Figure FIGURE 36 I Push downward on shackle td relieve spring pressure on plug If you discover that you have raked the plug in the- wrong direction and the lock will not open, this is no problem.

If the lock was very easy to pick, just apply, tension in the other direction and re-rake it open. Now, if FIGURE 37 " Plug spinners or flip-its Turning to the left Turning to the right 35 you have raked the lock in the wrong direction and open- ed it with difficulty, hold it right there.

Do not lock it and re-rake it. There is a tool just for this purpose see Figure This pair of coiled springs with handles, one coiled to the left and one coiled to the right, will be referred to as Flip- Its.

The first procedure is to determine if the left or right hand Flip-It is required. This is done by facing the lock and visualizing the handle pointing towards you and the flange inserted into the top of the key way. Now, say that your plug is turned to the left and this is in the wrong direction for opening the lock. You may have to get the plug to go to the right.

Carefully remove the pick and tension tool. Next insert a small screw- driver into the lower portion of the keyway on the raked lock. Keep the tension on the plug with the screwdriver. Do not allow the plug to slip into the original locked position. You already have chosen the proper flip-it.

Now place the centered flange end of the coil into the upper section of the keyway. Grasping the small handle of the coil, strongly wind the flip-it toward the direction into which the plug is to be turned.

This will be to the right. At the same time, remember to keep the plug in position firmly with the screwdriver.

With a quick yank, pull back the screwdriver. Some are very old now. The Mit Guide to Lock Picking.

Do not allow the plug to slip into the original locked position. You already have chosen the proper flip-it. Now place the centered flange end of the coil into the upper section of the keyway. Grasping the small handle of the coil, strongly wind the flip-it toward the direction into which the plug is to be turned.

This will be to the right. At the same time, remember to keep the plug in position firmly with the screwdriver. With a quick yank, pull back the screwdriver. The tension of the flip-it will snap the plug over to the opposite direction quickly enough to prevent the pins from falling back into their locked positions. After practicing this procedure, you will find the tool is quite easy to use. Occasionally, you will come across a cylinder that rakes easier in one direction than the other and if you have to rake it into the unlocking direction, you will find this tool quite handy.

Now, for the method of picking. When picking a cylinder, you will be lifting one pin at a time, for this we would use a hook-type pick see Figure 8.

You apply tension in the same manner as you did when raking. The insert the pick all the way into the keyway and raise up the last pin until the breaking point will bind at the shear-line see Figure Then proceed to the next pin until you work your way out of the keyway.

After each pin is picked, you will feel the bottom pin become free of the downward spring pressure. But, don't be fooled just because the bottom pin is free. This doesn't mean it's picked. You may have been applying too much tension to the plug and caused the top pin to bind below the shear-line see Figure That slight turning of the plug will become greater with each pin you pick until it turns fully when you have pick- ed all the pins.

Lock picking

Always remember, the tension must not be too heavy. You must develop that touch with your ten- sion hand. To practice picking, do so as I suggested in the raking method. When dealing with the disc-tumbler, see Figure The raking is performed in the same manner as that of raking a pin-tumbler cylinder.

You will find they rake open quite easily. The tension is also used in the same manner as that of the pin-tumbler cylinders. The only variation would be in the double- sided disc or wafer cylinder see Figure Double-sided locks can be raked in two different ways.

Number 1 —with the use of a standard raking tool— but I suggest the single or double ball pick which I have found to work very well. Apply tension in the same man- ner as you did with all other picking and raking.

How- ever, if you are using a double-sided tension tool, it will fit in the top and bottom of the key way see Figure FIGURE 44 Double sided tension tool for disc tumbler cylinders 41 After you have applied tension, you begin to rake the up- per discs or wafers as you would have in the single-sided lock. When you feel a slight give in the tension of the plug, you switch your raking to the bottom— but do not let up on the tension.

You rake the lower discs or wafers in the same way as you did the upper ones, but use a downward pressure when pulling the rake out see Figure Now for the second method of raking double-sided locks.

Use double-sided picks see Figure You will find these tools very effective in opening most disc-tumbler double-sided locks.Make sure to stop after the pin is set. In fact, if you wish, you may ignore this chapter and solely use the techniques you have learned previously. This pair of coiled springs with handles, one coiled to the left and one coiled to the right, will be referred to as Flip- Its.

However, such specialty items as mushroom, spool, and serrated pins still have to be taken into account and treated as special cases see Figure Take a break. Organize the logistics easier. There are two basic types - "bottom of the keyway" and "top of the keyway". Carefully remove the pick and tension tool. Tubular lock pick[ edit ] A tubular lock pick is a specialized lockpicking tool used for opening a tubular pin tumbler lock. All responsibility concerning criminal or legal acts using the picks is taken by the owner of the lockpicks.
