Facts About Lock Picking That You Might Not Know
Lock Picking gathers far more negativity than it should, since our associations with lock picking come from Car and Home break-ins. In this Swansea Lock Picking
blog, it will tell you about how lock picking, when used conscientiously, can be interesting and useful and it just might change your views on this valuable and beneficial craft.
1. Locks are not complicated and most can be picked.
The majority of the time, the more pins stacks a lock has the more secure it should be. Having more pin stacks means that there are more possible key variations which usually means a greater chance of the lock being picked.
However, a simple flaw in the majority of locks allow the pins to be stacked one at a time. This allows someone to pick the lock, regardless of how many pins it has.
2. Unpickable isn’t Invincible
Dual combination locks are popular because they are relatively inexpensive and don’t have the need for a key. However, they provide very bad security. The process to pick a dual combination requires the knowledge that the locking bar (which is spring loaded) can be ‘pushed’ back when any force is applied to it. They can usually be picked with a tool call a shim.
Dimple locks and keys are a unique design which are have small holes drilled at different depths, rather than the sharp slits on the blade’s sides. Although these are much more difficult to be picked, they’re not inaccessible. Impressing, is a technique where a soft material is inserted into the lock and will weave to the locks shape. A few movement and some patience and the stack is no longer binding.
