Peterson Hook 7 Lock Pick .018
When it comes to selecting different types of hooks, you are typically choosing between reach or maneuverability.
The Hook 7 is a combination between the shank length of the Hook 1 and the profile of the Hook 4. It is truly the best of both worlds. If you need something with a little more reach and leverage, the Hook 7 is your huckleberry!
The round tip reduces pin slippage and gives an overall smooth picking experience.
What Are Euro/Slender Lock Picks?
Eventually, you will run into locks with tighter or more restrictive keyways and as such you will likely need thinner picks and more maneuverable lock picks.
This is the purpose and intent behind the euro slender lock pick!
In addition to being thinner—at .018“— Peterson’s euro slender lock picks are also designed with a “Euro” shank, which simply means a reduction in shank height.
This shank reduction makes it much easier to access more restrictive keyways and get more leverage within the lock.
What Is GSP?
The GSP stands for “Government Steel Picks” and is exclusively a Peterson Manufacturing product.
While most lock picks are made of 10-95 carbon steel, Peterson GSP picks are made of an elite stainless steel alloy similar to the 420 stainless steel that is used in many surgical tools—like scalpels—essentially making these the strongest lock picks on the market!
This is where GSP has a HUGE advantage over other lock picks.
What this means for you as a picker is that your picks will last significantly longer than traditional and cheaper picks.
In the long run, this will save you a lot of money in replacing picks. This also makes these picks ideal for those starting out as beginners tend to be rougher on their tools.
There is something about holding tiny tools in your hands for an extended amount of time that will cause you pain… and not just physical, but emotional. There are few things worse in this world than being so close to opening a lock and having to drop your tools because of hand cramps or bleeding fingers.
To solve this affliction each lock pick that we offer has an ergonomic and comfortable plastic handle.
These handles not only making your picking sessions more enjoyable but also increase the feedback you receive due to more surface area of your hand being on the pick.
