7 pin Safe Tubular Lock picked.

  • Published: 19 August 2013
  • Another little fun project which hopefully will advance my technique in using these tubular picks. Could SPP it I suppose, but why do that when you've gone to the expense of buying the tools.

    Good show old boy, bloody American with a cheap gunsafe that others on here wiggle the tubular pick 2 seconds and wa la Open!!! But like you said old boy you have to tinker with it a bit and it does piss you about quite a lot!!!! Also you showing how to set and zero out the pins helped a great deal!!! Cheers!!!!! Wish me luck!!!!

    I just ordered one of these sets. I have a safe like this and the battery died. Inside is a loaded .357 Magnum. Ouch!

      You’re not using the right technique with the pick. You should not be lifting the pick in and out, you need to be using constant pressure down into the lock and lightly jiggle left and right.

      If you have trouble getting in right away still then you need to adjust the tension of the collar. You should always start with the lightener tension on the collar followed by very slightly tighter tension if needed.

      Once the lock is open immediately pull the pick out and snugly tighten down the collar so it holds the feeler gauges into place. You now will have a the equivalent of a working key. You can use southords included decoder for the purpose of having a new key made.

        Turn it half way so that it's not all the way open. Remove the pick and reset the feelers. Then careful not to turn the lock push the pick in solid so the feelers will set, then tighten the ring.

        You then will have a "key".

                              Maybe it was the camera, but it looked to me like you were not holding the lock picker straight enough, a little too much downward angle?

                                      Those small digital safes can be opened by hitting the edge of the plastic housing above the bit you turn with any hard object, hit and turn together & it should open. Failing that, picking up the safe then dropping it as you turn the open dial thingy usually opens them, you can bounce the safe on a mattress or sofa turning as it hits, this opens most electronic safes. Some can also have their codes changed by cutting a coke can to make a slim piece of metal which slides in between the door & hinges where there's a reset button which gets pressed in, enabling you to change codes. Helpful if you forget code & loose keys!!!

                                        Yeah I know Paul, there are plenty of YT videos doing the bumping method, but this video is purely for the Locksport enthusiasts. You access that reset button through the hole at the back of the safe, obviously when the safe is not fixed to the wall of course. This video is more about practicing with a tubular pick among the Locksport hobbyists such as myself. Thank You for watching and input though Paul ;-)

                                        But don't expect them to work on every lock, you only see tubular locks being successfully picked on YT?  They are OK I suppose, but you need a lot of practice and patience if you think all locks can be picked with these?  Happy picking :-)

                                      Use a better tubular pick and practice and it will be in some case's quicker than the key its self. Brilliant pick in the right hands of a locksmith.

                                        Ben7seven7 actually knows what he's talking about. That safe is very cheap and easy to open. It should be stupidly easy. You don't have the right technique or feel. You're doing it wrong, making excuses, and have people that don't know how to pick backing you up and making excuses for you.

                                        Trust me, I can open these safes without picks with and without batteries, and no damage.

                                        If I can offer my opinion Stephanie, I have this one and a cheap Chinese one, they all function the same. For example, the collar to tension the 7 pick wires don't tension them equally. This may work on normal cheap tubular locks, but they certainly cause problems with high end security tubular locks, with variable spring tensions acting on different pins, and security pins in the lock. "Peterson" tubular pick I believe is the best, but are very expensive.

                                                Experimenting with this things is what makes it fun.
                                                Try different tension prior to picking, and you'll figure it out.
                                                I normally start with quite heavy tension. And if I'm not successful, I'll lighten up on it. That way when the lock turns, non of the pick pins moves further, and after locking the pins I have a working "key".

                                                Good luck :o)

                                                  Yeah, I'm still honing up on the techniques required for these. Even though I locked that collar after picking it, I still had trouble relocking it using the pick? Of course it wouldn't relock straight away for the camera, just doesn't relock consistently using the pick for some reason, again it's technique I guess.

                                                          Tubular lock on a safe. Nice one.
                                                          I don't have very much experience with this locks and picks. But I have had similar challenges when using my tubular pick. I uses a little more tension on the pick pins (tight the tension srew a bit more). Solved my issues.
