The “Standard short hook” or lifter is the first “go-to” pick in the arsenal. This Pick is more versatile and is used more often than any other pick. It is designed to let the picker feel of the intricacies of the lock and manipulate pins individually. When the pick is used in a raking type technique it is also possible to work several pins at the same time. This pick is good for a wide range of keyway types, and pinning arrangements.
The “Shallow Euro” hook is intended for small and restrictive keyways often found in European, and “high security” locks such as Yale and Chubb. The slack curvature and slender profile allows the pick to slide past set pins and through highly restrictive keyways where a standard short hook is too large to do the job.
The “Steep Hook” is very similar in effect to the high reach tool, but is intended for very restrictive and tight, high security locks. With its downsized, slender profile, it is also very useful in taller Euro style keyways.
The “High reach” is designed to access and set very high (or Short) cut pins, that lie directly behind a very “low”(or long) cut pin. The dimple cut at the tip adds extra pin control, especially helpful when attacking the pin from the side.
The “Triple-Peak” is used on the withdrawal stroke of the makeing it one of the most effective rakes available. It differs from a traditional rake in the way it functions by using a “ramping” effect similar to bumping. Similar to the double peak with different spacing.
The “City Rake” is a standard rake that has proven to be indispensable over the years. This pick does a fantastic job of emulating the key bitings found among most common commercial and residential locks such as Kwickset, Weiser and master.
