Peterson Wombat Lock Pick Set (GSP)
This is another pick set designed by the team that designed the Mayor set.
These experienced pickers of course tend to pick pin by pin. All of their sets focus on hooks. The selection addresses egress into key-way widths, and the pick selection is what this lead developer has found to be the most effective to them, plus of course a selection of turning tools.
In 0.025 Goverment Steel this set includes the hook 1 and the hook 7.
In 0.018 Goverment Steel this set includes the hook 1 and the Peterson Gem. I developed the Gem by simply placing a triangle on the tip of a hook 1. That does more than just nicely increasing the reach of the pick; it also provides a point that allows you to locate your position between pins
In 0.015 Goverment Steel this set includes the hook 1, hook 4 and the Peterson Gem again.
Turning tools included are the Peterson Prybar (0.050) and Prybar Lite (0.040) BOTH with teeth, plus for BOK use, the 6 piece “I Like Bent” set.
This selection of picks and tension tools all fit nicely in our 3.0 inch wide nylon case.
The GSP stands for “Government Steel Picks” and is exclusively a Peterson Manufacturing product.
While most lock picks are made of 10-95 carbon steel, Peterson GSP picks are made of an elite stainless steel alloy similar to the 420 stainless steel that is used in many surgical tools—like scalpels—essentially making these the strongest lock picks on the market!
This is where GSP has a HUGE advantage over other lock picks. What this means for you as a picker is that your picks will last significantly longer than traditional and cheaper picks.
In the long run, this will save you a lot of money in replacing picks. This also makes these picks ideal for those starting out as beginners tend to be rougher on their tools.
There is something about holding tiny tools in your hands for an extended amount of time that will cause you pain… and not just physical, but emotional. There are few things worse in this world than being so close to opening a lock and having to drop your tools because of hand cramps or bleeding fingers.
To solve this affliction each peterson lock pick that we offer has an ergonomic and comfortable plastic handle. These handles not only making your picking sessions more enjoyable but also increase the feedback you receive due to more surface area of your hand being on the pick.
