Good for picking, not for tension q
The pick/rake section of the tool works great. But the tension aspect of the tool is very springy and does not provide good feedback. Hard to do with a flat tool for a wallet, but I have better success more consistently with the OSS tradecraft toolset.
Saved my Nephew
I was home on leave when I get a panicked call from my sister saying my 2 year old nephew locked the door from the inside. I was able to get the door open with the Picks I keep taped to an old credit card in my wallet.
Exactly what I expected
Very small, very flat, very lightweight and very durable. These were my first picks and I had no big issues using them on a training lock and am looking forward to continuing to use them. I did take some sandpaper to them in order to smooth them out a bit, and they now glide in and out of locks pretty easily. I like how they are useable in either orientation (peaks facing up or down) and in my short experience I have found both to be useful, something I haven't seen in other tools. I purchased these alongside the ITS SPIE pouch, and it holds them securely. The only thing to note is that these picks are small (smaller than my palms) and this may reduce one's maneuverability inside of a lock. Having a longer handle would definitely improve this, however that is not the intention of these picks, just something to keep in mind. This is why my review remains 5 stars.
Enjoying everything, loved fast service Thank you

I’m a firefighter/paramedic and having a non invasive means of entry for deadbolt locks is of great value on wellness checks and medical that may be time sensitive and we’re licked out. These picks provide an efficient solution to these events and are a great product
