Lockpick Hook Card


Hook lock picks are used for single pin lock picking and is precisely that, a method where you raise a single pin at a time, eventually raising them all and opening the lock. single pin lock picking requires a very precise tool, which is why you often only see a single point of contact on these picks. A good lock pick set is a critical tool in an urban escape and evasion kit or sere kit. This method is exceptionally effective and requires quite a bit of practice to use effectively, unlike the rake picks, which are very beginner friendly.

Difficulty Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Primary Function: Picking Locks

Bypass Card


The Bypass card was designed to open more basic door designs by completely bypassing the lock and going straight for the latch instead.  This tool can also be used to slip gate latches and be dangled over a gate to reach latches further down using the section marked as a Kevlar saw wrap. Kevlar is an extremely durable material that can work to extend your reach and function as a friction saw.
