FAQ About Lockpick Sets
A lockpick is a tool for opening various locks. It has a handle and on it is a curved bit that can be used to open locks. There is a distinction between classic lock picks and lockpick lock picks.
A lockpick is curved at the front and has a handle in the extension. This handle is partially rubberized to ensure a better grip.
A lock pick must be inserted into the lock so that the pins of the lock are pressed down. Then, using a tension tool, pressure is applied to the locking mechanism to hold the tension and open the door.
