Lock picks made from a .015 thick steel and very thin and this can be needed when picking european keyways. In Europe, many manufacturers tend to use a narrow keyway and using a thinner pick gives you the needed space to pick the lock open.
When would you use a .015 lock pick?
For almost any high security lock a thinner pick will give you more room to work and greater access to the inner workings of the lock. Because it is a thinner pick just remember to use a more gentle and precise technique when picking.
Why Choose Sparrows’ .015 Lock Picks
All our .015 picks are made from the same steel as our standard picks. This steel has a great memory to rebond back to its original shape when flexed and this is incredibly important with these thinner picks. They also go through a special slow tumble to ensure they are not damaged during polishing but still have a superior smooth finish
