Locks That show a preference to sequence picking

The Lishi picks and the new Lishi Pick and decoder tools will pick each lock that they are designed to open, in one locksmiths hands better than another , as one locksmith will have a heightened level of feel to another , However , it is possible to balance this out with some locks, as some locks prefer being picked in a set sequence.

Due to intolerances of manufacture , certain factors influence a lock to such a degree, that picking to set sequences can simplify and speed up the picking process.

Far better results will be achieved if the following sequences to picking are followed , insert the tool ad apply tension to the lock via the tensioner and then , Pick positions 1,3,5, and 7 first until set ( all slapping ), then when set , pick positions 2,4,6 and 8 , until each position is slapping , if it doesn?t open then ease back tension slightly and repeat as a wafer will have been overlifted.

The lock produced after 2002, the heads of the wafers 1,4,5 and 8 are wider, The heads of wafers 2,3,6, and 7 are smaller, so it is easier to pick positions 1,5,8, and 4 into the correct position determined by the slapping feel , once these are set increase tension slightly , and then pick positions 3,7,6, and 2 a few times each. If the lock doesn?t open, pick positions 1,5,8, and 4 again, pick every wafer until all are slapping in their open position and are set . If you have applied too much tension as a bit heavy handed, you need to ease back on the tension slightly, and listen to the sound when you ease off, for dropping wafers that were overlifted, then resume the picking process.
