Hook 1: Short Hook – Slender 0.018″
The Short Hook is arguably the most used and versatile tool in any lock pickers tool set. Mastery of the hook is often correlated with mastery of lock picking itself.
This pick is manufactured from 0.018 thick Government Steel and then molded into a purple toned plastic handle. This is our second thinnest series of picks. While they are somewhat thicker than the 0.015 picks, they are designed with the “Euro” shank reduction to enhance egress into restrictive key ways. They are are very useful for locks having narrow key ways

What makes these picks superior?
1. Outstanding Feedback and Comfort: The feedback you receive from the lock is everything! Because each pick has an ergonomic plastic handle, the feedback you receive as a picker is significantly amplified due to more surface area of your hand being on the pick.
Also because of the ergonomic shape of the handle, the pick fits snug in the hand to reduce cramping which gives you longer picking sessions and helps you get better faster!
The handles are also textured to help you maintain your grip during picking (having a lock pick slip during crucial moments is a very frustrating experience).
2. Unbelievable Strength: You deserve picks that are strong! This set is made of Government Steel — an elite stainless steel alloy which is the strongest steel available for lock picks.

What is GSP
GSP stands for government steel picks and is exclusively a Peterson Manufacturing product. While most lock picks are made of carbon steel, Peterson GSP picks are made of a special stainless steel alloy that is much stronger than simple carbon steel.
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 this kit ideal for those starting out as beginners tend to initially be rougher on their tools.
