Clear Acrylic Practice Lock
If you want to see all the movement of the pins and springs a clear Acrylic shell is the only way.
This is a polished molded shell featuring pins and springs designed specifically for this lock.
The result is a very clear view, comfortably hold and realistic lock picking action.
Available with either standard or High Security pins
That is the most important part of this lock – the action and feedback is very similar to that of a real lock.
Other great feature if you are a lock picking instructor this lock can be used by both left and right handed students.
Finally the visual aspect of a clear lock makes it easier to see the pins.
Even with a cutaway window looking at small brass pins in a brass frame can be difficult for some.
The one question that we get is what is the difference between a Clear Acrylic practice lock and a Brass cut away.
A brass cutaway has a bit of a different feedback.
With the brass pins on a brass shell the feedback that you feel in both the pick and in your fingers holding the shell is sharper.
The clicks from picking are also a bit more natural to that of real lock.
These differences are minor but as you gain experience you would notice them.
Standard Pins – As the name suggests these are normal tube pins and this is where you want to start if you are new to lock picking.
Spool Pins – Shaped like roman columns these high security pins with shift and bind in the lock – get ready to learn what a false set is.
Serrated pins – The worst of the batch and the hardest of these locks to pick. Serrated pins constantly catch the sheer line binding and stopping your progress.
