    Comments about Duluth Trading Lock Pick - Lock Pick Tool:

    I actually bought this years ago from Duluth & didn't have an occasion to use it until last week. I managed to lose the key to my fire safe & needed an important document from it. Fortunately, I remembered this tool. I've never picked a lock before in my life, but with a little help from Wikipedia, I actually managed to get my safe open & retrieve what I needed! I'm kinda proud of myself & have to admit, I feel a bit like a delinquent! I can honestly say this thing works. I'm really glad I had it in my toolbox.

            Thinking a lock pick purchase, even for home use should have more of a description or explanation that "picking" is not something you will pick up in a few minutes...

            It's not magic, but it works well

                Comments about Duluth Trading Lock Pick - Lock Pick Tool:

                You have to know how lock picking works in the first place, or you have to have the desire to learn. I have home made wrenches and picks of various sizes - I took up lock picking as a hobby out of college. What I like about this is that it is self contained, and the wrench is nice and long so you can hold it steady while holding the lock, and it gives good feedback.

                My sense is that if you work with this tool regularly there are few limitations - you kind of have to get used to it. That said, you still have to have some skill, and understand locks. If you're interested in practicing with the tool, it'll work - but if you've never picked a lock before, this is no better or worse than anything else - in other words, it's not magic; it's just a good tool that's self contained.

                The pick end, as depicted in the picture and as others have said, is wavy. It can be used with the large hump facing the pins, or flipped over so the tiny tip can push the pins. I think the design is quite nice. Someone asked why it was spring loaded - my theory is that you can adjust for different depths of the cylinder and lock it into place for your comfort - after all, it's about "feel". Just a guess though. Since I have a variety of picks, this self contained, single unit is comparatively great and seems pretty sturdy.

                  Comments about Duluth Trading Lock Pick - Lock Pick Tool:

                  Bought four of these, one for myself and the other three as stocking stuffers for Christmas for people I work with who are always locking themselves out of somewhere. I used mine already at work. We have a desk and a file cabinet we've been afraid to lock because we couldn't find the keys. We locked both and used this lock pick to open them. We did practice on a couple of locks before to get used to the lock pick first.
