I "may" have a set and "might" be good at it.
You see, it "might" be unacceptable to have a kit if you live in NY.

Describe these regulations that might exist.

Kinda not really showing any type of true "It's Illegal". But generally some online sites wont sell to NY residents. It appears that where I "may" have gotten them from "possibly" didn't have much interest in caring.

It's kinda odd. For the most part it's not illegal to have them, but it's illegal to carry them if you dont need them.

I've been doing some looking. it seems they only become illegal when yu add intent (like a screwdriver or a pocketknife).

As for using them, found this cool and well illustrated tutorial:

The bump key will not work on a wafer lock due to the way a wafer lock works. They only work on pin type locks

i have a set I was given 21 years ago, it has over 100 picks, tensioners, extractors etc. I have not found a lock I couldn't pick yet. I can even get into the tubular locks like found on soda machines. Some take only seconds and some take upwards of 30-45 minutes depending on the brand and design.

I had the privilege of attending government sponsored training on bypassing locks. Learned how to pick locks and bypass the locking mechanisms entirely. It is more fun to think of it as how to hack the lock. Once you get an idea of what I mean, you never look at a locked door the same way again. There are often faster and easier ways to open a locked door without a trace than using a lock pick. But picking a lock is good fun! I am not very skilled at picking higher security locks, that comes with practice.

If you ever lock yourself out of your old 79 the hold down wire on the master cylinder cap works perfect to open the vent window on the door.One handed, no other tools required.

And can use it to open just about anything.

30 seconds to open the door, hopped inside, and had the engine running in another minute

I learned how to do it, cause in my business, I get alot of medication carts and sometimes file cabinets and stuff that are locked. It's actually a very useful skill to have, and so surprsingly simple, you'd be amazed. There are very few locks that can't be defeated with that set above. The ones that are more persistant? Shims, jigglers, and electric pics
Where did you pick up that set?

I drive a towtruck by the way, not some thief lol. Lately I have been getting lazy and and have been using this to wedge the door,



Then this to flip the lock/window/handle.



Been doing it almost 8 years now, I have opened every thing from an 06 aston martin DB9 to a running cop car with a suspect in the back (lmao).

Its the best part of my job

With those padlocks and some others you just take two hammers and hit both sides (narrow sides) at exactly the same time and they pop open, it's because of the spring loaded latches that face each other.

Sorry guys, I forgot to check this thread.

You can get the tools I have at www.southord.com for around $50.
They have lots of different kits, and individual parts
