The Hook 1—also known as the short hook—is arguably the most used and versatile tool in any lock picker's toolset. Mastery of the hook is often correlated with mastery of lock picking itself.

What Is GSP?

The GSP stands for “Government Steel Picks" and is exclusively a Peterson Manufacturing product.

While most lock picks are made of 10-95 carbon steel, Peterson GSP picks are made of an elite stainless steel alloy similar to the 420 stainless steel that is used in many surgical tools—like scalpels—essentially making these the strongest lock picks on the market!

This is where GSP has a HUGE advantage over other lock picks.

What this means for you as a picker is that your picks will last significantly longer than traditional and cheaper picks.

In the long run, this will save you a lot of money in replacing picks. This also makes these picks ideal for those starting out as beginners tend to be rougher on their tools.

Ergonomic Handles

There is something about holding tiny tools in your hands for an extended amount of time that will cause you pain… and not just physical, but emotional. There are few things worse in this world than being so close to opening a lock and having to drop your tools because of hand cramps or bleeding fingers.

To solve this affliction each lock pick that we offer has an ergonomic and comfortable plastic handle.

These handles not only making your picking sessions more enjoyable but also increase the feedback you receive due to more surface area of your hand being on the pick.

  4. Cameron

    This is the first pick I ever bought and after 2 years of picking and hundreds of dollars into the hobby, the Hook 1 is still the first pick I reach for. Highly recommend grabbing this in .25" and .18"

  5. Bernardo

    Great pick, one star off for slow shipping. Included starter guide is top notch though.
