out that they're a lot easier to get than they were 4 years ago).
I ended up getting some bigger sets this time. Now, the problem is that
I've got all of these wacky picks and I'm not sure what to make of them.
Keep in mind that I've been able to open (through days of trying in some
cases) all locks I've tried my hand at, except two (one is a padlock
with one high pin in between two low ones, so I need a taller hook...
and the other lock is a 7-pin Best lock, that I haven't tried since my
skills have improved).
The locks I've been able to pick are a handful of pin padlocks, a few
kwikset locks, and a few wafer locks consisting mostly of those cheap-o
cam-type locks that you see on display cases and whatnot.
Anyway, the point of all of this is that I've picked all of these locks
using only the *hook* pick that came with one of the sets. Now, in a few
cases, I'll use the half-diamond (aka. triangle) pick on a cheap lock to
see if I'll get lucky and not have to pick the individual tumblers....
but that's about it. One pick and one tension wrench have gotten me by.
So, I'm wondering what I'm supposed to do with these other picks. I've
got one that looks like a set of teeth or a mountain range with about 4
or 5 triangles in a row
really worked in anything I've tried. And the one that *completely*
baffles me is this one that has a little ball on the end
. What in the
tarnation am I supposed to use *that* on? Are these for some strange
locks that I haven't encountered yet, or are they just something more to
