The diamond tip is a favorite for many, the half diamond in particular. Almost every set by every manufacturer will have a half diamond lock pick in the set. It’s a classic because it is highly effective.

How Diamond picks work

Similar in shape to the teeth on your keys a diamond pick can slip through a lock in a fashion that others like the short hook can not. Its smooth action is perfect for setting pins that are close in set heights. Fortunately, for locks to be smooth in operation, manufacturers often do not have large differences in the heights of pins to prevent your key from jamming? If they do you might be better off using a deep access hook like one of our SSDeV picks
