You get shown how to make lockpicks.
i posted this long ago then took it off and left .


you will need:
A bicycle tire (the kind with spokes)
a windsheild wiper(the kind That is somtimes attatched to vehicles)
dremel tool or benchgrinder
some string(optional but fun to play with)
Some plyers (2 is fine)
and gogles(or you will have a lot of eye pain for a while)
can the metal sheets from the wipers be replaced with anything else? I need a different way to get a tension wrench other than buying one...
You can use paperclips, straighten them out and twist the paperclip then bend it into an L shape. It's kinda hard to explain but the paperclip tension wrenches are what. I found works the best for me because you can use different thicknesses of wire to make tension wrenches for different size locks. Another thing that works well as a tension wrench is an Allen wrench ground down to fit inside the lock. You can also bend a nail into the same L shape and grind the L part of the nail thin enough to fit in the lock <br>
<p>Hey letnetik, i found the tension wrench on this site works really well (diy), but the pick is just about useless. Check it out. <br>http://www.itstactical.com/skillcom/lock-picking/how-to-make-a-paperclip-lock-pick-that-works/</p>
Good, never seen it made from bicyles before :D<br> This would save me some money : <strong><a href="http://www.lockpickwinkel.n/lockpick-set" rel="nofollow">Picklock sets</a></strong><br> <br> Thanks Cya!
that's not a rake pick, that's a hook pick rake picks are more wiggley the pick u made is for single pin picking, not raking
im getting sick of this........ okay rake is a very general term used for picks of this type. the "wiggly" type of pick you mentioned is called a snake rake i just say rake pick. this is a super simple pick and i will use terms that everyone can kinda understand
i know what it's called and it can also be a camel back, which is more of a pointy wiggle, but it's still a rake pick same with the diamond, half diamond, double ball (snowman), half ball, full ball, and many others.... and nobody uses those picks for raking, so why would they be called rake picks?
nobody eh so you know everybody who ever lived and picked a lock. i dont really care what you call it, its a lock pick it picks locks and nothing more, just another instructable on how to waste your childhood. i dont know what more you could want
Uuuuhm.... I agree with rippinblaise, i spend my whole night studying lockpicking (my new hobby, yay) and its not a rake pick (or snake pick), but a hook pick. rake/snake picks are for muliple pins at once, and the hook picks are for 1 pin at a time. so yeah dude, your wrong. but everything else is great about your guide. once i &quot;borrow&quot; some wipers ill get to it.
just to let u know.....the pick u made is NOT a rake pick.....it's a hook pick.....it's not for raking but it's for SPP-ing (single pin picking)
very unoriginal comment is unoriginal
i'm not trying to be rude.....i'm just correcting your mistake.........everyone makes mistake.
it was made and purposed as a rake I do not ever use it to single pin pick. I did not buy this there was no package saying single pin pick. You are not the first to bring this up.
See if your camera has <strong>Macro mode</strong> it'll make <strong>close-up</strong> pictures clearer :)<br/>
will do
Cool, if it helps, the <strong>macro mode</strong> icon is a <strong>flower</strong><br/>
Thanks I was kinda confuzzled
LOL haha!
wow, you deserve a break from all that ranting lol nice work. I found hacksaw blades work rather well, too.
yeah i first tried the hacksaw blade approach it looked very proffesional when it was something i can be proud to hang offa my keys and they worked for a while but my snake rakes all failed me they just kept breaking T.T. btw thanks for the non rant comment lol
haha no problem. And mine have yet to break! But my friends have; unfortunate, I know. lol My first approach was a bobby pin/paperclip combo, didn't work. epic failure... lol
For some reason 2 safety pins worked for me that and a makeshift tension wrench (just a random strip of metal) and a safety pin worked great. Safety pins are just made of stronger stuff
you're using this to only break into your things... right?
of course you could use this if you got locked out of your house and you had access to your garage which happened to have tools a car and a bike inside
well, if you try to open locks that... aren't yours... cops using forensics can find the lockpick etchings on the sides of any lock. it's possibly a felony. ye have been warned.
...you do know lockpicking is commonly used by burglars, right?
Not as commonly used as door kicking
my point is SMART(er) criminals lockpick, which isn't even that smart anyway.
nah its not smart it takes too long lock picking is better suited to people you hire to open locks.....aka locksmiths Burglars need to be fast
well, that's true. but, have you heard of snap pick guns, or bump keys? they can open locks in a matter of seconds.
yeah ive made some bump keys and pick guns they still take some skill to use and bump keys only work sometimes on certain locks. Bump keys are a good solution but youd better have enough of them to fit every lock ever.
you really don't need that much bump keys to open your things.
maybe.......maybe i just suck at making bump keys.
...wait, you make your own? you can just buy one for 2 bucks though... or maybe cheaper, I'm not too sure.
Yeah i could and i could also get on the governments black list for purchasing them that and i dont want to spend money on my useless hobbies
well, yes. that would be a bad thing. if you did anything illegal.
Forensics is expensive. They dont use it unless its a serious criminal offense.
Japanophile. And since when does Macgyver have a dremel?
since when has he not had a dremel? maybe he found one i mean he found a bench grinder once he could even use a file or a rock.
Look, all I'm saying is that Macgyver improvised most of his tools. And I doubt that he had a dremel.
hey whatever works for you 20 year old bike spokes were perfect for me so used them but let me ask this if you are trapped in a warehouse with enimies are you going to look for the perfect tool steel ?
there are better materials. You want spring steel. The spoke is a poor choice. The best things are street cleaner bristles and packing strap. The kind for bricks is too thick, but the stuff used for reinforcing cardboard boxes would be better. Use a dremmel to shape the picks (you're going to want a fews hooks, rake and diamond at least) you can't shape a hook to match all locks. The spring steel is important, because you'll need to feel whats going on. Both the tensioner and the pick will transmit the feel better.
spring steel sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can you elaborate? Spring steels sucks because pro tools are made from it? It sucks because good how-to's include tempering to remove brittleness? I know it sucks because it transmits the feel of the pins better. Who wants that? Throwing out adolescent "This or That sucks" is pointless and of little help to anyone if you don't explain it. That said the above instructable wasn't about making great lock picks, but from stuff lying around. MacGyvering if you will. I don't like spokes because the handle is tool small. Pro tools all have a much braoder handle for a reason, feel. But if you are ever locked in a garage by foreign terrorists, and the phoenix foundation can't help thesd would be great. Considering the number of times McGyver needed to pick a lock you'd think he'd carry a set along with the swiss army knife
oh, sorry, what i said was supposed to be in a &quot;joking&quot; matter...<br/><br/>spring steel isn't so strong... it wears out after 100 or so uses.<br/>pros always make their own, &quot;proffesional&quot; sets you get online are crap. <br/>locksmiths never buy sets, they <em>make</em> sets.<br/>any website you look at will tell you spring-steel sets from the internet are crap...<br/>sorry for any confusion<br/>
tool steal is good for this small Alon wrenches and or needle files but requires heating and tempering to finish them off.
Damn right they're like MacGyver, he can make C4 out of Gatorade and Q-tips!
hooker srry bad speller
ur anima looks like my jap hocker gairfriend
