Step 1: Parts List & Tools Needed
All of these parts were salvaged from various products but I will also provide links to the relevant products.
- rumble motor from old ps3 controller
- 1s 300mah LiPo from old RC helicopter ( I changed the battery in the picture to another one because when it was charging it caught fire! luckily it was charging in a lipo safe bag)
- button from a random circuit board
- battery connectors from the same RC helicopter
- 65mm aluminium bar from material binVelcro
- lock pick tool head ( I made this myself)
- soldering iron
- super glue
- wire strippers (optional)
- craft knife
Step 2: Electrical Stuff
First solder the male battery connector to the battery and insulate the connections using either electrical tape or heat shrink.
Next to make the circuit board I have provided both a circuit diagram and a close up of the actual circuit to help you build it. It is simply a switch breakout so not complicated. Once your done connect up your battery and see if it works.
Step 3: Putting It All Together
First get out some super glue, apply some to the rumble motor, then stick it securely to the aluminium bar. Next feed your wires around so they seat neatly and dont get in the way of anything and then superglue the pcb on to the bar. Next get out your velcro and affix the battery just below the motor. Finally affix the tool head in place. If you dont want to glue the tool head you could use a bolt or a similar method to attach the tool head.
Then you're done!
Step 4: Conclusion and Review
Before all of you go into the comments section and tear my head to shreds, this lock pick although not looking very good, has been able to pick a few locks with decent success. You could very well upgrade the pick with a more powerful motor and a bigger battery but this was a proof of concept, if a rudimentary lock pick could be built cheaply and could be easily concealed.
In the future I do intend to revise it with a newer version which will have the ability to pick much more complex locks.
