 The worst feeling in the world is right after you close the door of your car and realize that the
doors are locked and you left the keys inside. Wouldn't you want to be able to pick the lock to
retrieve your keys? When we hear the phrase "lock picking", we think crime, burglars, illegal
activity. But this is not always the case.

Of course, you can break the window of your car to get back in, but the best idea in this case is to
call a professional locksmith to open your doors so that you can get back on your way with
minimal effort and aggravation.

Just like anything else in life, in order to pick a lock you need the right tools. The basic kit contains
a lock pin and a tension wrench. Of course, in an emergency, you can replace the lock pin with a
hair pin. The Professional kits include a wide variety of tension wrenches that will cover a variety
of lock pins. Some of them will even include a lock picking gun which uses vibration in order to
push the pins inside the lock at the same time in order to open the it.

The first thing you need to do when picking a lock is to insert the tension wrench that came with
the kit into the keyhole of the lock you want to open. After the wrench is in all the way in, try to turn
the cylinder. Next, use the appropriate lock pin to help pry up the pins in the lock. As soon as the
pins reach their normal "open" position, you will hear a "click" sound. This click lets you know that
the lock is open.
