Early Preview Lishi Kwikset Pick | Mr. Locksmith
For further info and to sign up for my new On-LIne “How to Pick Locks” Course go to http://mrlocksmithtraining.com/
I had the opportunity to try out the new and soon to be released Mr. Lishi Kwikset picks. The KW1 is for picking and reading 5 pin Kwikset locks and the KW5 is for 6 pin Kwikset picks.
Unfortunately, I was not allowed to video but I could take all the pictures I wanted. However, I will soon have the new Lishi picks and I will post videos.
The KW1 and KW5 picked the sample Kwikset locks as expected. One of the major advantages of the new Lishi Picks will be the ability to read the depths of the lock once it is picked and you will be able to make a key. However, if the locks have Master or construction pins the key will unlock and lock the lock but maybe not any other locks in the building. The New Lishi KW1 / KW5 picks are not designed and will not open Kwikset Smart Locks, yet lol.
The Lishi picks are well built and have a nice feel to them.
Picking method is classic Single Pin Picking (SPP). I do not foresee any problems with security pins, just will require a slightly different method of SPP to open. Actually, on Kwikset locks, I find them very easy to SPP security pins. (the binding pins cry out to be picked lol).
The new Mr. Lishi picks are expected to retail for $120 US each.
Mr. Lishi will soon release the Schlage SC1 5 pin and Schlage SC4 6 pin picks soon too.
