So, if I read the fine print correctly, then I can’t get these shipped to Canada. Is that the correct reading?

I am disappointed that Massdrop would sell these. Who would be purchasing this item other than someone who wants to break into a business, home or apartment? This is terrible.

Well, a good picker can open a basic 7 pin lock in under a minute. If you want NDE then picking is efficient, buying picks isn't though. Dimple picks, wafer picks and other specialised picks and wrenches are easy to make. Impressioning is a far better skill to learn though since it gives you a copy of the key, in which case you simply "had the key" and didn't break in. They are good practice tools, but locksmiths are taught to build their own tools.

I see the "Fine Print" still hasn't been updated to include people training to being a Locksmith, where they would hold no certification for having such tools while still requiring them to learn...MD still trying to save their own skin in an instance where no one is holding a potato peeler...-_-

A good bump set, unless someone has the standard bump preventing spring in their lock. More torque wrenches would be good, especially long ones and side grabbers. An overlift would be a good addition too.

I wasn't aware that locksmiths could upgrade locks like that. I know off the shelf locksets generally won't have upgrades like that. I've installed hundreds of Kwiksets and clones over the years and never run into one. I would expect those upgrades to be included in brands like Yale or Schlage for example, but most people don't buy those due to increased price over the KW1 locks. BTW, I'm not a licensed locksmith. I used to work maintenance and my bosses always went the cheapest route when replacing locksets. I got into picking and bumping for a short time as a hobby since I had access to countless used locksets.

You pull the spring out of an old lighter and use that, cost is less than a dollar, very effective. It's a DIY upgrade for any brand. KW1 or KW2 locks can definitely have it done to them.

Street sweepers often break off bristles in the gutter. They make excellent picks or wrenches and are spring steel.

My favorite tension tools are ones I'nv made myself from the steel inserts in windsheild wipers. There are 2 primary styles of wipers, one has (2) flat thin steel pieces on either side of the rubber, and the other has (usually) one wider thin steel piece down the middle of the rubber. Look at the ends for two shiny spots for the first kind. *CAREFULLY* take them apart, and cut and bend those pieces of stainless into tension tools. The best method I've found for collecting these is to wait until a big rain storm, and go to the parking lot of an autoparts store. There will be a dozen or so old broken wiper blades in their garbage cans, but the steel inserts will be in great shape. They vary by thickness and width by brand and model, so you can get a large variety of subtly different tension tools. Use a flat jawed pliers and carefully bend them after cutting to length, and then sand the cut ends smooth, I go up to 400 or 800 grit wet dry paper depending on how worn out it is.

I purchased the same 9 piece set almost six years ago, these things are built for life. Excellent starter kit or carry kit, has saved my butt a few times when I locked myself out of my apartment.

So I’m just curious and I do not intend to slam or make fun of lock picking, I think it’s really cool and would love to get into, but I do not understand why you would carry them in say an edc it just does not seem practical to me as I personally have never been like “man, I wish I could pick this lock right now.” At least in a day to day sense. Again I do not mean to offend or be rude I’m just curious if anyone has had a practical use for lock picking.

Unless you have locksmith license, you don't want to get caught carrying lockpicks, as you will be charged with possession of burglary tools. Which reminds me, I have some hidden in my wallet I've had for years and totally forgot about. It's a Readyman Hostage Escape card. It has 2 lockpicks, tension wrench, handcuff shim and a saw for plastic handcuffs, all stainless steel. I don't know how many times I've gotten through courthouse security with it.

Or if you're a tradesman, lock picks are something you can carry. Stainless steel is junk, you need spring steel for proper tools.
