Toool has designed two laser-engraved lock picksets to commemorate the 7th and final Hackers On Planet Earth conference –

It is called ‘the last hope’ emergency pickset, and the main idea is to carry it in your wallet. You will most likely use it when you lost your keys, or when you are assisting others who lost their keys.

If you look at the back of the set, you see the edges of the set can be snapped off too, and are actually four separate tensioners. If you snap off all tools, you will end up with and eleven (!) piece pickset. As you can see, there are three basic picks, designed with the novice pickers in mind.
The other Toool pickset is the new and improved ‘double sided picks series’. There will be eight double sided picks in this set. For the moment I will only show you one of the picks, but you can imagine what the other seven are going to look like.

    It’s a great kit, and being credit card size isn’t just useful for transport, but also very cool.
    How can I get one?

    Go to HOPE and visit the lockpicking stations.

    I would love to go, but being in Portugal, in middle of exams and not having money to fly to NY, makes it kind of difficult, lol

    Isn’t there any other way?

    I’d be careful – in Virginia and DC at least, merely posessing a pick set is a crime…

    “just for emergencies”….. yeah, right!

    Pull the other leg.

    I couldn’t get to NY for this either. But as nice as they look, it’s a crime to posses them in Canada too.

    It looks like the maker is in the UK? Are they legal there, I wonder? Interesting that almost anyone can have guns here, but not pick sets . . .

  8. Dave says:

    The maker is in the Netherlands, where lock picks are legal but using them on someone else’s lock is not. In the UK it’s legal to have them in the house but not to be caught with them out of the house. See Wikipedia entry “Lock Picking” for other areas.

  9. The Oracle says:

    @Patti – As a Maker, you should be very sensitive to that issue living in the states. In a lot of areas (like texas) it’s easier to get a handgun than a chemistry flask…apparently the only reason one would own a flask is to make drugs..
