The tool that can be used to open a keyless pin lock is called a pick gun. It is also known as a snap gun. A pick gun can be manual or electric. This is the best solution to open locks without the proper key if you do not wish to use any of the conventional guns. The perfect picking tools are:
• Hook hook
• Rake hook
• Bump key
• Slim Jim
• Half diamond hook
• Tubular lock
• Ball hook
• Hook for lining lock
Classic picking tools are manual. By buying a pick gun, we offer you the opportunity to have all these hooks in an excellent design tool: a gun. The electric gun is much faster than the manual one. The pin lock is a locking mechanism that can not be opened without the right key. It is based on the following principle: if one does not use the correct key, the pins, which have different lengths, prevent the lock from opening. There are two elements in a pin lock: the cylinder and the lock case. Also, the pins are formed by the upper bolts, which enter the lock casing and the lower pins that enter the cylinder. But, using our pick gun, we offer you the possibility to open locks without the right key. To open the lock, the pins must be in the correct position: the upper pins in the lock housing and the lower pins in the cylinder. When this position is reached, using the gun, use the supplied tension tool to turn the cylinder, and that’s it: the lock is open!
How does a pick gun work?
Practically, without a key in the lock, the pins are pushed down, in their normal position, in perfect alignment. This position prevents rotation of the lock, so it automatically prevents the opening of the lock.
When an incorrect key is inserted into the lock, the pins are pushed upwards, but not on the same level, by the shear line. Therefore, again, the pins lock the latch rotation mechanism so that you can not turn it and open it. If you insert a correct key, all pins align with the shear line, allowing the latch to rotate freely so you can open it.
On this basis, the gun snap or the pick gun, in general terms, uses a fundamental law of physics, the transfer of energy. Triggering several times activates the pins. The lower pins, actuated by your gun, push the upper pins. By doing this several times with your weapon, energy is transmitted through the lower bolts to the upper ones. Being very rigid, the smaller pins transmit power to the upper ones, pushing them into the lock case and stopping completely, without passing through the lock case, leaving room to turn the cylinder and open the lock.
The Pick Gun is used to create a gap between the pins and the cotter pins and quickly open a paracentric lock and sometimes some radial locks.

If you call a locksmith for a door opening, the picking gun may be the only picking tool you’ll see in action.
The picking pistol remains the most accessible tool to dominate to open a door, provided that the lock is vulnerable to this type of attack.
The operation of this technique
The easiest way to open the pin locks is to snap the pins; this will cause a transfer of energy between the pin and cotter pin, which will cause the nail to stay down and the pin against pin goes up alone, this will create a gap between the pin and cotter pin that will allow opening the lock for a few small fractions of a second.
Like billiards, if we have two balls against each other, when we hit the first ball, it will transfer the energy received to the second, and it is the second ball that will move while the one that received the shot initially remains on the spot.
