Some thoughts on anti-pick locks from an expert

 all for anti pickToday there are many locks out there with the title of anti-pick, and although our staff highly recommends that anyone get a high security lock which is pick resistant, we are also aware that the term is widely used and in many cases plainly not correct.

A vast majority of common lock types are pickable, however some provide a much greater challenge and can only be bypassed by a master who spent years perfecting the technique and studying the locks in question. If you need a new lock installation or a lock replacement, our experts will provide a high security, anti-pick, amongst other things, lock which will have the average deterred, as well as provide great protection against physical attack should someone attempt to break through the door by force. There are of course a few varieties of locks which are impossible, or near enough to pick, one option of course is an electronic lock, however, it comes with other weaknesses.

Although we do not stock them, there are also chain key locks, in which the key itself is made as a chain of mobile parts, making the corners of the lock mechanism impossible to navigate for any picker, even of the highest skill.
