Here are some tips on how we actually get your locks working again.
Specialist equipment: By virtue of our experience in this industry, Locksmith Moreno Valley has access to many locksmith tools. That does not mean that our clients have access to the same arsenal of tools. In fact many of them rely on us to offer them both guidance and the tools to use. However you may be able to get away with the use of safety pins, paperclips and even hair clips when you are attempting to pick your lock. You do not have to be a lock picking enthusiast in order to avoid the panic of emergency situation. Make sure that the house or car is secure before you leave it because there could be robbers around waiting for an opportunity.
Locksmith service available for all kinds of locks.
Raking and Scrubbing: This is a popular tool and methodology that we have adopted for our work as a commercial locksmith. The pins are inserted to the back of the keyhole. This allows us to operate without applying the torque to the cylinder. We will then quickly pull out the clip. This results in the raking motion upwards on the pins. Pressure is applied with a light torque and an extension wrench. This is done until the lock has been picked apart. Obviously this will not work for electronic keys on modern cars.
Tension Wrenches: The key to lock picking is working with the tension wrench.We will try to find the right amount of torque on the hold so that we can push the upper pins right out of the cylinder. At the same time the pins are left to remain in the set position so that the lock can be opened.
