Pick Open Master Padlock with Lishi Tool | Mr. Locksmith Maple Ridge

Pick Open Master Padlock with Lishi Tool | Mr. Locksmith Maple Ridge: A Lishi tool is a very good tool for locksmiths to use as it is a time-saving way of making replacement keys or opening locked cars. Lishi is also a style of lock picking technique that is very easy to learn compared to the conventional way of picking locks. It only uses one lifting probe, which can be set at a specific space marking that allows each tumbler to be moved into the open shearline position.

The Lishi picks are well built and have a nice feel to them. Only a small amount of training would suffice to learn Lishi picking. Two reasons why I love Lishi tool: One, It’s going to teach how to become a better lock picker, because you’re gonna know exactly where you are to feel the binding pin, and the second thing is, my biggest pain in the butt for pick is 6-pin Schlage.

Lishi is a very good tool for locksmiths to figure out, because you have to use a Lishi tool and most the application you’re basically feeling the wafers, you’re going the binding wafer, you pick that one first and then you can go for the next binding wafer. That’s how you use the Mr. Lishi tools for automotive. They’ve come out with fantastic tools, they’ve come out with four tools now. One for 5-pin quick set, the 6-pin quick set, also the 5-pin Schlage, and the 6-pin Schlage.

Open Master Padlock with Lishi Tool | Mr. Locksmith Maple Ridge

Open Master Padlock with Lishi Tool | Mr. Locksmith Maple Ridge

So you can get KW1, KW5, or KW10 I will call it. The SC1 and the SC4. I had the pleasure of testing some of the prototypes. The tools made my Mr. Lishi, I tested the 5-pin and the 6-pin Mr. Lishi tools on quick set rocks, and they say it’ll do whether it has mushroom or spool pins or whatever. It’s exactly the same as when you’re using regular picks. You put the tool in and you’re feeling for which pin is binding first.

Single Pin Picking, SPP, or they like to call the field method or the French method. We’ll call it the SPP for today. Because of the tolerances within the lock and the inaccuracies of machining, we will find um let’s take a 5-pin one of the pins will be binding, and that’s the pin you pick first. And the tool is fantastic because it has all your spacing for quick set and the depths and we know they go most of the quick sets go 1 to 6. So you can feel with the tool you can find exactly which one is binding. You pick that one and then find your next one. So it’s not always 1-2-3-4-5, it could be the 3rd, the 5th, the 4th, the 2nd. You just remember which one’s binding first, and it’s not the same in all locks, because of the different machining processes.

Now that picks really quick now watch this we leave it picked we can read this thing, so let’s read it. So the first cut is…so that’s a four. The second cut, is a five. Third cut is a five. And the fourth cut is a one. So, not only can we pick this pretty quick, we can read it and I’ll make a key to it!

I am now replacing my crescent wrenches and other pliers with the Knipex pliers. Now, I do not use this. I saw it for sale and it wasn’t expensive and I bought it and I just hang it on the shop wall, so I just thought I would show you. So this is what I use. I’ve been using this forever and in my installation kit, in my everyday carry. I saw this. I am very, very happy with my Knipex tools, so I thought I’d replace this crescent wrench in my everyday carry and it’s getting heavy, but I’m trying to make it lighter. So I replaced it with this.

So let’s just take a peek at what we got here. So what bugs the heck out of me on my crescent wrench, it doesn’t matter what you’re doing. It always comes loose. So you’re trying to use it, I put up with this my whole life. Unless you got the exact tool you’re needing, but in your locksmith case, this is what I use and I really just need, I use it mostly for mailbox locks. So I’m happy with my other tools. So this is the Knipex pliers and it’s got the little button here. look at wide that goes. So this crescent wrench is going in the spare kit. This is going in my everyday carry, in my tool case. So that’s the Knipex. Look at that. No matter what angle it does, it’s locked in. It’s not gonna move on me ’til I push the button and move it where I wanna go. So this is gonna be really handy and

Knipex Pliers

Ia going to show you how I use it on a mailbox lock. So this is my mailbox lock. The Mailbox lock kit has all the different tail pieces for it. So let’s just put this tail piece on there for now. Just for the demonstrations. Normally, I usually install it first and then I put this on last. I’m trying to make this good for the camera to see. Go finger tight. Now what I can do hold my lock. Take the key out, really, put that on there. They are down there just snug. You can really over-tighten these, so be careful. Give a little test. Lube that up. So, perfect. So this tool has replaced my crescent wrench. So this Knipex pliers has now replaced my crescent wrench, which for years has driven me nuts, but I didn’t really have anything better. This is way better. I willl be using this every day now and soon I will have some more videos with this in action on job sites.

Here is a comparison, these are new in my kit now in my everyday carry locksmith tools, and here’s the new tool. Apparently there’s one, that’s a five inch one. I don’t have that one yet. So I’m going to probably add that to my collection. This is my Knipex pliers that I have so far, and they’ve been updating my locksmith tools for these, and I’ll show you how this goes in my little pick case. First thing I grab when I go to do a lockout, most times.

The little pair of Knipex pliers are right in my case for every day, every single locksmith job, this is in my kit and that’s my little case for it. So I have a bigger pick case, but this is just first thing I grab, I got a lockout, go to the door. This is my first kit I grab.

My Lock Picks: Hi, I’m Terry, and I get asked many times, what do I use for picks.

My Lock Picks

Mr. Locksmith Maple Ridge: (604) 259-7616

Mr. Locksmith Automotive Maple Ridge(604) 259-7617

Lock Pick Case

When I show up at a job site, I pull this out of my locksmith tools and it’s just a little map expedition case, this is a EDC case. And in it, and this is what I do probably 95% of my picking lockouts, is just, I grab this kit, it’s quick and easy.

Knipex Cobra XS 4″ Plier

And just inside is, I’ll show you what I got here. I have my latest little toy. I have my KNIPEX pliers, and these are handy and they’re narrow enough, sometimes I can get a broken key out of there, but this is for picking. I just grab this. I can have this, if I have to turn it.

Knipex Cobra XS 4 inch Piler

Knipex Cobra XS 4 inch Piler

Lock Picks

The main tools I use, every single time. So my favorite pick is a hook pick with a diamond. And some of these are Peterson’s, Rytans, whatever. That’s my favorite pick. This one’s a little bit thicker. This one’s a little bit thinner. And I always grab, I prefer a rigid tension wrench, and I also have a flexible one. You see, I bent it. I bend this whichever way I’m going. So these three things right here I’d say open up 90, 95% of the lockouts I have if I have to pick the lock.

Plug Spinner

This is it, very simple. I either use a rigid, a flexible, and a lot of times the locks will pick the wrong way. Well, I’m not gonna re-pick it. I’m gonna use my plug spinner. I call it a flipper, a plug spinner. I have a whole different types of spinners, but this is the one in my case. I have a bigger pick set that I use if I just not picking it.

WD40

And of course I always have a little can of WD-40 I use for picking locks, not for lubricating locks, for helping me to pick it. My friends all use TriFlow and I like using WD-40. I had a lock the other day, it was funny. It was a lockout and it was a Schlage deadbolt, and they can be difficult to pick. And I was having no luck picking it at all. And then I just gave it a little spray of WD-40 and it picked like in 10 seconds. Lubricant is extremely important for picking locks. I always try to pick a lock without using lubricant, and then if I can’t pick it, then I’ll spray it. Some guys will spray it with the lubricant right off the bat, some locksmiths will just spray it right off the bat. I’ve had extreme luck. Sometimes you go there, the lock is just ready to pick, so by the time I apply tension, put the pick in, and it opens. People ask about the technique.

Sticky Lock Maple Ridge

Sticky Lock Maple Ridge

 

Single Pin Picking

I’ll show you in a couple of videos coming up, but there’s two techniques. There’s the single-pick method, which is the best method, and then there’s raking, which works well. What I do is, I rake the lock, apply tension, I rake the lock a few times and then I’ll single-pin pick it. That seems to work really good for me. Also, don’t be afraid to release tension. I’ll rake it, single-pin pick it, and then I’ll let go. And if I don’t hear click, click, click, it means I haven’t applied proper tension. So one way, instead of just picking away, some people are afraid to release tension, release the tension, then you can see, “Oh, I picked a bunch.” Or if you hear nothing, you don’t hear the pins falling back in, then you know you got bad tension. But back to the point, this is my everyday carry. If I show up a lockout, this is what I have in my kit. Hope you enjoyed the video.

You hear the expression, especially when it comes to tools, “Cry once when you buy it or cry twice when you have to replace it.” You buy quality tools, you really save yourself a lot of time and money over the long haul. Same thing with key machines. I’ve got key machines that are 35 years old. They work absolutely perfect. They work some better than some of the new ones. That’s another story. But a couple of years ago, I bought the Knipex bolt cutters for cutting screws and tail pieces on locks. And because of that, I’ve now purchased, I’ve gone into the little tiny, probably the most expensive pliers I ever bought, the Knipex a pliers.

Knipex Pliers

This is in my pick kit, my EDC. I’ve replaced my crescent wrench with this little Knipex. With pliers, it’s basically replaced my crescent wrench. I’ll never go back to a crescent wrench. I’m actually now looking at the larger one, I still use a large crescent wrench for when I install with my pit ball, which is another video, when I’m installing latches on steel doors. So I’m gonna get the bigger set and that’ll be the next thing to add And these two tools, I call them channel locks, but they’re actually called water pump locks.

If I got to grab something, these are unbelievable. So this is in my tool case for every day. This is in my backup kit for when I have to do something a little bit more heavy duty. The power of these and the gripping power is unbelievable. I was in the rain the other day and some of my other tools that were getting rusty, my fault, I should have oiled them down. These things still look brand new. I’ve had excellent luck with these.

Knipex Cobra XS 4 inch Piler

Knipex Cobra XS 4 inch Piler

So I’m extremely happy with my Knipex pliers. Very, very happy. I’m gonna add a few more and you’ll be seeing them in future videos as I’m doing jobs. So these are the very best pliers you can buy. If you look at the Mack Trucks, I think even Snap-On, they’re carrying the nitpicks line in there. I don’t know if they’ve rebranded them, but you can buy these at your, they’re a little bit harder to find at your big box hardware stores ’cause they’re trying to flog their in-house brands. The advantage of buying off of a, I call it the big box trucks, is if something breaks, it’s very easy to do a replacement.

I haven’t had to replace the thing yet, but it’s extremely easy with other Snap-On tools I have, especially my circuit pliers. I tend to break them every couple of years. They just give me a new one. I have some screwdrivers and some Snap-On ratchets and whatnot. If I crack them, they replace them instantly. So I love my Snap-On truck guy and I love the Mack tools guy. That’s the two I like. The tools are good and a lot of them are selling these lines. So it’s just to go in and get a replacement.

Mr. Locksmith™ Maple Ridge

This is the second most little tool I’ve ever bought. It’s a Knipex pliers, it was under $50. Look at the size of this, it’s tiny. It’s extremely strong from what I’ve seen.

It’s overpriced, yeah, I wanted one and I’ll show you how I put it in my, in my pick case.

Weiser PowerBolt 1 Installaton

So the Weiser Powerbolt. And I don’t know if it is a good lock or bad lock, I’ll say that upfront. The reason the customer had problems was, the battery went dead. So the battery was dead on their Weiser bolt. So we got instructions, installation thing, little skinny little keypad, box of stuff. You know, the inside is not so small. Instructions is what’s in this should be the bolt. So, we have the bolt, this is if you wanna convert it to a drive-in latch. And we have a strike plate for the edge of the door, another plate, and our screws. Now this is different than a lot of the newer locks, we call it the D, this is still using the, just the little slot there. So the bolt is using just the slot. So it’s not your typical D, D latch on this one. And it’s adjustable. So it goes from 2 3/8″ to 2 3/4″ backset

You remember, does this say top? It doesn’t have top on it. Remember we call it Mickey mouse ears, the ears go on top. So that’s the top and it’s adjustable 2 3/8″ to 2 3/4″ backset. There is a different bolt than they have in there, in their other locks, more of an old, old style, but it’s still different. Oh, there’s the tailpiece, I said bits and pieces inside plate. Let’s see how it goes on. Okay. It’s got long screws, short screws, different thicks of doors. Takes four AA batteries and no batteries supplied. It didn’t say that on the box, Where are my batteries? Okay. I’ll just grab some batteries.

I got lots of batteries. Remember as locksmiths, always carry lots of fresh batteries. So here are no batteries, no big deal. We will play with that. Let’s throw in some width screws, to there. Remember, don’t crank these in all the way. It’s, we just want them snug. That’s all. That appears to go under. And, the cord from the exterior to the interior goes under the bolt, goes into the lower part and we’re gonna use the slightly longer screws. Okay. So that looks good. That’s not crimped. Here we go. Now, this is the interesting part. It says just fit that in there. Okay. Just fits in. Okay. Where does it go?

We’ve got that into there. So there’s nothing on the exterior of the tailpiece to activate the deadbolt, just slips in. Then we take the power supply or hook up the cable. Let’s get going, see if it fits. One of the big problems you have to have with all these locks is, do not crimp the cables, cause that’s a pain in the butt. So we have machine screws. Remember, use machine screws don’t use wood screws. I always have lots of batteries.

PowerBolt Batteries

The lock requires four (4) double-A batteries. Ooh, it’s happy. So right off the bat, I’ve always found these kinds of hard, if you’re doing the manually, it’s the, you think, I haven’t. The first time I installed the early, early versions of the Powerbolt, I thought I installed it wrong cause it was so hard turning that thumb turn. But that is normal. It’s not like a normal kind of lock. You don’t even feel the deadbolt going out, to the bolt itself, going out all the way. But it is going all the way. So, right off the bat that’s kind of hard, but not too hard.

PowerBolt 1 Instructions

Okay. I had to pull up the instructions. I can see why people hate these things. So from the inside, I have to hit the program. So the programming button is on the inside. So I guess you gotta be inside already to get this. There are different instructions for the left and the right. So this is left. Hit program. Two beeps. Press one-two. Press program again. I will hear one short beep. Now press in a four to eight-digit code. Didn’t like the last one, let’s do this. And then, press the program again. Now we hear one long beep. Okay. Let’s lock it. It locks. It unlocks. Lock it. Okay. Unlock it. Let’s see if it’ll handle another user code.

So we do a program, two beeps. Hit one-two. Press program again on the inside, one short beep. A four to eight-digit code. Let’s see if it’ll do this. One, two, three, four, then I press the program again. One long beep, successful. Okay. Let’s lock it. Then push the button. Okay. Now let’s lock it. The old number. Okay. It holds two numbers. So we can do, let’s just try this one more time and add another number. Press program. Press one-two, because it’s a left-hand lock. Press program again. And I’m gonna try one, two, three, four. Then I got to press program again. Nope. It didn’t like that.

It said three beeps, if you hear three beeps, it was unsuccessful. You know why you probably didn’t like the one-two, because this is left, by their, by there, this is a left. They call it a left walking latch. Well, that’s a bolt visor. It’s called a deadbolt. So it’s a left locking latch as per their instructions. So will, does not like the one two number, but it does like. Like that number. Lock again. And it likes That number. So if it’s a programming number, it doesn’t like that. So the other programming number, if it was the other way around, let’s see if it just locks that one out. Five six is considered a lock code number. So let’s just lock it. So we’re gonna program.

Press one-two, then press program again. Well, It liked that. Let’s try the number. Okay. So, because this is a, if I had to program it from original to a right hand, it won’t take one-two. But if I program it from here, it will take that as a programming code. Let’s just try one more programming code. So let’s just lock it. That’s it. Program. One two. Program. Didn’t like that, three beeps means wrong. The box and the instructions, I just took a quick look at it. I, it, I had to look at how many user codes of this handle. I had to go to the website to look it up and it will hold four user codes. They can be between, four or eight-digit, four to eight digits, whatever. So they don’t tell you that.

So it only holds four user codes. The instructions are poor. But we do know that if I, in theory, let’s try this. If I punch in, three times wrong, I’m locked out for 60 seconds. So if somebody is playing with it, gets locked out. Now I wonder, let’s try a proper code. Now it won’t let me try anything. What if I lock it and unlock it? No. It’s still locking us out for 60 seconds. Some of the locks, if you lock it, unlock it from the inside. So four user codes, 60-second lockout, if you do it three times in a row wrong.

Weiser PowerBolt 1 FAILS

I am going to remove the batteries and test the battery backup. Now, this is what, the first time we ran across this lock, the customer, the batteries were dead and the lock would not open. And, the interesting thing is you’re supposed to have a nine-volt battery. So let’s disconnect the battery. So, disconnect the battery. What’s kind of interesting is, and quite a few locks have this and some of them work really well.

This is a fresh battery. It’s a Duracell. It’s one we use all the time. Right under the nameplate is, cause there’s no key override so you locked out of this. There we go. Stick my battery on here. Okay. It seems to have a rear proper wedge, a little plus or minus but we can figure this out. Okay? Okay. So it does take, plus goes on that side. This is why I have boxes of smart key locks, smart locks. I got boxes of broken ones, because out of the box. Okay, we’re gonna, this is a fresh nine-volt.

Let’s grab another one. This is out of my alarm kit. So, these are good batteries. So we know we have the plus goes to here. Oh, don’t leave it, leave it running, leave it running. I find this fascinating. My, my camera guy is not liking this, but no no, keep it running. Let’s see. Okay. Just hooked up the battery. Okay. Okay. This is a real test here. So let’s lock it. Let’s disconnect all the, let’s just pretend the batteries are dead, I will disconnect them.

I remove all the batteries the lock is dead. We are locked out. You go there as per the instructions. I take my battery, nothing with that one. This one. Okay. Likes that one. Just in case, here you hold that. press it. It says, wait until it makes a noise when its got the positive on this side. See. It’s crap. And this is why the customers are locked out.

We had, we tried everything. I bought one out of the box. You saw this. I went to the local Big Box Hardware Store. I bought this, hooked it up. Just like our customer had a problem. I could not get it open. I had my nine volts. He was sitting there with his nine volts. We did not, I didn’t wanna, we did not get it open with the battery pack. We did not get it open from the front. And I tried everything. And in the end, what did do? We drilled it off the door. Cause we only got one door going into the pool room. And it didn’t work for me. And I just thought, maybe it was a faulty lock.

It was, it didn’t work. I couldn’t use my batteries. I couldn’t get it to work. And the customer had batteries too. But a lot of times we go to a lockout, the customer’s batteries, we put in our batteries and the customer is using old batteries. And so the lockout, look at this right here in the shop, having fired a round, right out of the box. You saw it, didn’t work. If a Weiser sees this, cause they know I pick on their products a lot. Let’s put, let’s go to Home Depot together, or Rona or wherever you want.

Let’s buy one of these, right out of the store. Okay, we’ll go together and let’s do this. And let’s see if this works. Hey, one more time. Try the other battery. Seems to like that one. How’d you like to be? I am a locksmith. How’d you like to be a homeowner and this is what’s happening to you? And you call me up in the middle of the night, we come out here, sometimes we take our battery or whatever, we open it up.

Weiser PowerBolt Problems

  • Poor Instructions
  • No Batteries Supplied
  • Battery Backup Failed

I don’t feel so bad now. Crappy user instructions, crappy lock. We know it works with the batteries, four user codes, 60-second lockout. This is why I don’t sell this at all. Because of the problems. I ran around, we grabbed a few more nine volts, stole one out of my smoke detector, it still doesn’t work.

In conclusion, I would not recommend this lock and I can see why locksmiths. It must be. I dunno, who knows, but I can’t recommend this, but I can see why it’s, why do locksmiths love these locks, cause we’re going out at night and daytime, and we are opening these. I have a video on my training site on how to totally bypass this, but it does require you to drill the lock and it destroys the lock.

Hopefully, that customer has taken that lock back and got the warranty out of it, cause it doesn’t work. I hope you enjoyed watching this video. Subscribe to my channel.

Sending a locksmith the picture of a key can help us identify the key or lock. This may seem like a silly video, but it’s actually very important. I made the “How to Take a Picture of a Key” to help our customers.

  1. Take an in-focus picture of the key.
  2. Take a picture of both sides of the key.
  3. Remove any tape or obstruction covering the head of the key.
  4. If possible a picture of the end of the key.
  5. In-focus pictures of the key.

Key Copy Near Me

A lot of times customers ask Where can I get a “key copy near me’”  “I need my locks rekeyed.” or “Duplicate Key” and then they try to describe it to me. Sometimes they can, sometimes they can’t, sometimes there’s no information that you can see, but I can see. So, a lot of times we ask our customers “Take a picture, take an in-focus picture of the key.” So we ask our customers, email or just text me, a picture of your key. So this is how to take a picture of your key so I can see what you have. You gotta take both sides of the key. So take a picture there, so I can see what the make is, I can look at some of the grooves and then turn the key over and take a picture again, and then I can see from the other side I know it’s a Schlage, and on this I can see it’s a C123. So I can tell you “Yes I have that key.” So whatever key you have, whether it’s a car key, or house key, motorcycle, whatever, in focus, both sides of the key, then you can email it to me or a locksmith and we can tell you if we have that key.

Sometimes we’ve had people on fishing expeditions up north, they’ve taken their keys with them they’re in the middle up north, in the middle of nowhere, the wife is locked out, they have the key, and this one, we can actually see this one has a code, so we now know we can cut that by code and we can get that person in the house really quick and easy.

In conclusion, silly as it sounds “how to take a picture of a key”, in focus, both sides of the key, text or email, then we can tell you what you have. [email protected]
