Snap Gun Lock Pick
This tool was originally manufactured for the purpose of allowing police officers who aren’t skilled at lock picking to be able to quickly and efficiently open locks. The snap gun is simple to operate and therefore the user doesn’t require instruction.
This device doesn’t open locks with the traditional raking technique. Instead, the snap gun has a needle protrusion at the front which snaps upwards sharply when the gun’s trigger is pulled. This exerts a great force on the internal pins in the lock, causing them to bounce up after being pushed by the needle, clearing the shearline most of the time.
Using the supplied tension tool, you can take advantage of the shifted pins and the ‘cleared’ shearline. By inserting the tension tool into the lock and applying gentle turning pressure, you can move the plug and open the lock. This product arrives as a complete and ready-to-use kit, with three needles and a tension tool.
