Brief explanation of opening tools – Info for your customers

Locksmith on the job

What exactly are opening tools?

Opening tools are designed to open doors and windows that have accidentally been closed or locked – ideally without leaving a mark or causing any damage. Professionals rely on special tools to “outsmart” locks and bolts. Non-destructive tools, ranging from lock pick sets to special wires, can deal with barrels and latches or click-to mechanisms.

If the door can’t be unlocked using a lock-pick set or similar tool, brute force may be required. In this case, the destructive door opening tools involved will simply break the lock. In an emergency, this is sometimes the best option. Even so, every professional will try to open a customer’s door without damaging the lock.

What are non-destructive and destructive door opening tools?

Non-destructive unlocking tools act in a similar way to a key. They open a lock barrel or profile cylinder using mechanisms similar to those found in the lock itself. The most famous are the skeleton key and the lock pick, which has now evolved into the electronic lock pick. Opening cards unlock simple door latches, while bump key sets act as universal door opening tools. When keys have broken or snapped, professionals rely on extraction tools, using holding or clamping tools to hold the barrel in position. With the aid of such tools, locksmiths can provide one of their most important guarantees: a promise to open 99% of all accidentally locked doors without leaving a mark or any damage. Our vehicle opening range also includes special tools for a problem that arises virtually every day. These are used when a car is firmly locked in its parking space but when the owner can’t find the key. If non-destructive opening tools fail to work, more rigorous tools may be called for. These include our drilling and metal-cutting tools, pulling screws and hole saws. They can be used to remove lock barrels and destroy lock mechanisms and may be unavoidable in an emergency.

We’re here to help.
