The beauty of the Hooked Diamond lock pick is the profile and how it affects the pins changes as you alter the angle.
When slightly angled, this pick offers a similar slope to that of the gem—which gives us the benefit of being able to slide it across pins. Additionally, this makes the pick slightly more maneuverable because we don’t have to lower it as far as to get it under each pin stack.
However, when we begin to remove the angle, the tip of the pick begins to flatten out and rise which makes lifting pins very easy and reduces any chance of slippage. And because it has a very wide offset, it easily pivots and curves around pin stacks without touching them, making setting those short pins in the back an easier task!
What are 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 slender lock pick!
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.
