Locksport, as the art of picking locks for enjoyment is called, is a rewarding and fun activity that stimulates the mind and challenges ones finger dexterity. Having the proper tools and skills to use them could be valuable in Go Bag or EDC kit if you spend any amount of time in or around urban areas. It can also save a pricey locksmith bill from time to time, when you or perhaps a friend lock yourselves out or lose a key. If you want a dedicated case to hold the kit, check out our Compact Lockpick Case!

The Entry Kit Basic Contains:

  • 5 Piece Bypass MultiTool: Custom made for this kit, the Bypass Multi-tool is a powerhouse of lock bypassing capability! It features two of the most useful “jiggler” profiles, three of the most useful “comb picks”, and an upgraded version of the QuickStick.
    Jigglers are used for “wafer locks” (Such as found on filing cabinets, access panels, RV side compartments, toolboxes, trailer hitch locks, etc). Jigglers do not use a separate tension tool like their “lockpick rake” cousins.
       Comb Picks are bypass tools designed to push the entire pin stack above the shear line, allowing the plug to rotate and the lock to open. These tools work with a variety of cylinders most commonly found in solid-bodied padlocks, and puck locks. With a wee bit of practice, it is almost as easy as using the actual key. A short, but certainly not exhaustive list of what these open are:
    – 4-Pin Comb: Master 40mm series solid body padlocks and various clones of this common design. (M140, M141, etc.) We have not had success with Brinks brand padlocks
    – 5-Pin Comb: Master 50 and 60mm solid body padlocks and some Abus padlocks. (M150, M160, Abus 55/60)
    – 6-Pin Comb: Master 6-Pin Puck Locks and Trailer Hitch locks (A2000, A2001, 6271), American Series 748 and other locks utilizing the American 2001 series cylinder. As well as some older model PacLocks.
      The “Quick Stick” is designed to quickly open poorly designed Chinese padlocks, by reaching past the pins and bypassing the rotating core together.
  • 5-piece Riveted Lockpick Set: Fully custom made for Tuff Possum Gear from 0.025″ thick tempered stainless steel. This is a selection of the five most useful profiles for “in the field” use and easy/medium skill level, based on my personal preference and the recommendations of many folks far more knowledgeable than I ever will be. They are the same length/format as the popular “Bogata Pi” set at just about 3.14″ long and are riveted together for easy handling in the field. The five lockpick profiles are:
    Short Hook
    – Half Diamond
    City Rake
    Triple Peak, Large Wave Rake
    Five Peak, Small Wave Rake
  • 3 Piece Tension Wrench Set: Getting a good tension on a lock is crucial to good picking. Each one of these three picks are a different thickness and double ended for a total of 6 different tension options to fit a multitude of keyway situations. The wide/long ends are for “bottom of the keyway” and the narrow/short ends are for “top of the keyway” tensioning. Color coded: Red is .030” thick, White is .040” thick, and Blue is .050” thick.

The Entry Kit Plus contains all above, plus the following:

  • EZ Card: Designed to work like a standard shove knife or gate latch tool with the convenience of sliding in your wallet like a credit card. Let’s be honest, a lot of the doors folks accidently lock themselves out of are the easiest to bypass, especially outside swinging types.
  • 5 Piece Warded Pick Set: Warded picks are designed to pick both modern and older Warded Locks. Made from full hardened stainless steel and designed to withstand the torsion needed to open even weathered locks.
  • 2x Notched Decoder Shims: These are a bypass tool designed to open many combination padlocks made by Sesame and Master Lock, as well as many luggage locks by decoding or shimming. Picture those padlocks, keyboxes, and briefcase locks that consist of a row of 3 to 4 little number wheels next to each other. That’s what these are for. The shims included in this kit are an upgraded version over the previous “EZ Decoders”, with a longer handle and a notched tip profile. Included are one shim 0.010″ thick and one shim 0.006″ thick.
