Re: Picking a bilock

This right here is why I like this forum. Thanks guys for the replys!
I have that article by lockpickingforensics but it didnt give much info for picking.

That little piece in the center is made out of brass?? I was thinking it was stainless! Looks like making a custom tension is the consensus. Ill start with that.

Note that it is not an HPC pick, I placed an HPC handle onto that pick.


That is a very interesting design for a tension tool Is there a reason you didnt go with the normal L?

There’s a link to the older thread on the previous page which, iirc, notes that this tensioner design avoids touching the inner parts of the center nub, instead displacing force on either side of the center nub, or I think that’s the intention at least.

I think an F shape would work ok. I turned another tool I didn't use into that, and it was already roughly that shape.

Hi guys, I'm new to this forum (have been on the other for a number of years) and have had a lot of fun learning to pick these. How did you go with the bilock.

Re: Picking a bilock

BiLock is an entirely different animal than a V7. The V7s are downright easy compared to the BiLock.

Re: Picking a bilock

I've not had the chance to pick a Lockwood v7. Even though I live in Australia I've never seen one either. If anyone has one they'd like to sell I'd definitely be interested.

I have 2 bilocks, both are the quick change style cylinders.
