I locked myself out of my house the other day… D’oh! It would’ve been easy enough to break a window, but hey it’s my own home. So I decided to try and pick my way in. I used a pair of garden shears to cut up a hose clamp which I used as a pick and tension wrench. Even though it was a very crude piece of work, it did the job!
So I decided to polish my impromptu lock picks into something more presentable. Now that I’m not locked out of my home, I was able to use these things to make a simple lock pick and tension wrench:
Hose clamp, Dremel, Sugru,Pliers,Vice, Safety gear
Don’t have a Dremel? Like I said, I made picks using rusty garden shears, so I’m sure you can be resourceful, too.
