2014-12-02 (F) Sinister Flick Lock Pick

The purpose of a flick style lock pick is to jostle a tumbler lock such that the pins align themselves at random until they catch at which point they are held in place by tension by the twisting of a lock pick wrench.

Enough background.

A flick style lock pick was attempted using a hitch pin. The end was flattened using a hammer and anvil. The tip of the pin was heated to aid in the flattening. The end was sharpened and shaped on a bench grinder.
