Many are the times we lose our keys and end up breaking our padlocks to get access to our homes.

Seeing that this is a major problem facing many homeowners, it is worthy that we, a padlock locksmith company, show how you can pick your padlock in case you misplace your house key.

Using bobby pins or paperclips

The first thing you do when using bobby pins is making a lock pin and a tension wrench.

The tension wrench is made by bending the close end of a bobby pin until it makes a 90 degrees angle with the rest of the pin.

The single-pin pick is made by unbending the bobby pin until its straight.

When you have done so, bend the flat end slightly upwards.

You, therefore, need two bobby pins for this.

In case you have no bobby pins, the wrench and the ick can be made from paper clips

Once you have the wrench and the pick, you now insert the bent end of the tension bar into the keyhole.

This should help keep the keyhole open as you are picking the lock.

After doing so, rotate the tension wrench as if you are opening the lock with a key.

Since the lock is locked, the wrench won’t go far but try to rotate as much as you can and hold it with your finger to maintain pressure.

Finally, insert the single pin pick into the keyhole and push it inside as much as you can.

Different padlocks have different series of pins that need to be raised for the lock to open.

To find the pin at the furthest end, push up the lock until you feel something go up.

Keep pushing the pins in the row until you get to the last once all the pins are up, the cylinder should be in a position to turn and the lock pop open.
