Introduction: Create a Lock Picking Tools From Scratch

About: maker, steampunk lover!

Hello friends! today I'm going to teach them how to make tools to open any padlock or drum lock with only a Wiper/Washer!

  • For this project we will only need: Wiper/Washer
  • Some tools like a grinder or bench grinder
  • files
  • blade of Jigsaw (optional)
  • pliers

Let's begin!

Step 1: Removing the Wiper/washer Blade Insert

The first thing to do is to disassemble the wiper/washer, for that we
must remove the rubber weatherstrip, and then remove the two metal blade insert.

Step 2: Prepare the Blade´s

Now we take one of the rods and proceed to mark and cut, we need to make two cuts, one of 4 inches and another of 3.5 inches.

Step 3: The Torsion Wrench

Now take the 3.5 inches and bend the tip to 0.3 inches (1 cm) and then
apply a twist to the middle of the tensioner to give it more rigidity. We already have our tensor ready! we only have to make our picks

Step 4: The Picks!

To make the picks we occupy the blade of 4
inches (10 cm), with a round file we roughly chopped close to the tip and once made said muezca, with a flat file we match the surface about 1.5 inches (4 cm) as we can appreciate in the pictures... Instead of wiper blade, we can use the blade of a jigsaw tool. And ready! now we can open any kind of padlocks or drum locks!

Step 5: Final & Templates

Here I leave this template so you can take as an example when making
your picks! In the video you can also see how a ganzua works with a blade of jigsaw tool. I hope it has been useful, see you in the next instructable!
