Snap Gun With Lock Picks

Open Any Lock Instantly!

No Skill Required!

The snap gun was developed decades ago to allow police officers who were not skilled in the art of lock picking to open locks with minimal instruction. Rather than opening locks by the traditional raking techniques, a snap gun uses a primary law of physics, the transfer of energy, to compromise locks. Comes with picking needles, tension tool and instructions.

1. Introduction

Different Kinds of Lock Picking Guns

Lock pick guns come in two main types:

  1. Manual Lock Picking Gun:

    • Insert a thin blade (needle) into the keyway of a pin tumbler lock.
    • Apply rotational force (tension) using a turning tool.
    • Pull the trigger repeatedly to fire the rod against all lock pins simultaneously.
    • Use a tension wrench to turn the lock once the pins align.
    • An alternative to traditional lockpicking methods like raking.
  2. Electric Lock Picking Gun (EPG):

    • Similar to manual lock pick guns but powered by an electric motor.
    • Continuous firing with the trigger held down.
    • Suitable for various lock types, including dimples and plug spinner pins.

2. How Lock Picking Guns Work

Lock pick guns operate based on the principle of inertia. Here’s how it works:

  1. The steel rod strikes the pins simultaneously when the trigger is pulled.
  2. The rapid impact separates the pins, allowing you to catch them above the shear line.
  3. Use a tension wrench to turn the lock and open it.
  4. Depending on the lock’s pin configuration, you may need multiple strikes to align all pins.

Remember that while lock pick guns speed up the process, not all locks are susceptible to this technique.

3. Why Use a Lock Picking Gun

  • Time-Saving: Lock pick guns significantly reduce the time needed to pick a lock.
  • Versatility: Useful for both professionals and hobbyists.
  • Effective: Quickly aligns internal pins without trial and error.
  • Limitations: May not work with all lock types (e.g., restricted keyways, security pins).

4. Using the LAT-17

  1. Insert the Needle:

    • Place the thin blade (needle) into the lock’s keyway.
  2. Apply Tension:

    • Use a turning tool to apply rotational force (tension) to the keyway.
  3. Pull the Trigger:

    • Repeatedly pull the trigger to fire the rod against all pins.
    • Catch the pins above the shear line with your tension wrench.
  4. Turn the Lock:

    • Once all pins align, turn the lock using the tension wrench.

Remember to practice and refine your technique. Happy lock picking!
