The master key is a specialized tool used to open locks without using a key or breaking a lock.

The manufacturer of the first "professional" master key was the American inventor Alfred Hobbs, who received several patents for his master keys and in 1851 founded Hobbs Hart & Co. Ltd, traded master keys.

Lock picks can be used to break locks by criminals. According to R. S. Belkin, the Forensic Encyclopedia, the master keys can be classified according to the types of locks for which they are intended to break (cylinder, lever, spring); The principle of operation of each type of master key is somewhat different. Uistiti can also be used to break locks (a term from thieves' slang, derived from the English name of the martins, a sort of small South American monkey), which is a handicraft tool that looks like tongs and is designed to grip the tip of a key left behind a locked door. S. I. Potashnik in his “Forensic Investigation of Locks” singles out a type of device for opening locks that is separate from a master key.

At the same time, master keys can also be used by, for example, locksmiths in the event of a lock or key break or a key is lost. In addition, sometimes opening your own locks with master keys can be a hobby or even something like a sport, with the presence of “interest groups”.

Attitude to the master keys and their use in different historical and modern states is different, but mostly negative. For example, in the Brazilian Empire, it was illegal to store or sell any items that could be regarded as intended for hacking. In some states - for example, in Great Britain, and Japan - even the storage of master keys is actually prohibited.

How and from what to make master keys

What we need for this

  1. drill or machine, but rather sharpened;
  2. forming circle (if only a drill) (Photo1);
  3. rasklodny meter (Photo2) or a suitable plate with a thickness of 0.5-0.7 mm (the main thing is to be made of good metal and not too bent, for example a knife, a tempered plate or a spring suitable in size) we will make a master key from it;
  4. Malinky hexagon of it, we will do the knob;
  5. Test (any lock from the castle is suitable, but it is better to have a Korean one, as it is easier to start training);
  6. teski (without them it will be very inconvenient);
  7. patience and hands from the right place.

Let's start!

First you need to choose which master key we want to do (their huge choice). We will do one of the three most simple and most common. We disassemble the meter for this we need to grind off the sides of the rivets, but they will not be used to throw them away (see Photo 3).

The next stage is the processing of a link of a meter. We process it according to the sizes shown in Photo4. Processing is carried out using a stone attachment (see Photo1) the main thing is not to overheat the meter link. Too long working part is not worth doing, because it can break, but we need everything so that the master key gets to the last soldier (see Photo 5).

After we have done the master keys, we need to polish them so that they do not cling to anything, so that someone does not speak, but with polished master keys it is easier to work (opening locks with master keys is a very delicate science).

Now ready-made master keys are fastened three pieces together with the same rivets, but you can also not fasten as you prefer (see Photo 6).

The next thing we will do is the pusher, we need it to give a turning effort to the lock.

Take the hexagon 3 or a suitable bar of good metal and make a “poker” (see Photo7).

You can also make a pusher from the key (see Photo8), we simply remove the working part, leaving only the upper part of the key.

Consider other types of locks, master keys to them and methods of opening without master keys.

The first, which we consider this Finnish lock so-called disc with semicircular keys .

It usually opens in two ways:

  • 1. By rolling it from the nozzles (bits) of the company KRAFTOOL or similar well-known companies, but not from such as STAYER and similar common goods. You can make it from bars of a good alloy it is checked by the method of spear. Best of all, of course, to make it out of titanium, you can get it from a turner and process it there. Looks like a folding one. See Photo9 as a key with a hexagon on the end under the head. Processing the bits with the same stone, see Photo1 and most importantly the temperature of the bits during processing should not exceed 80 degrees, as this will lead to the release of the metal. After processing, the finished worm is to be polished to do this so that it does not break. Imagine if you make a scratch on the glass and hit it, then the glass will break in this place on the roll and the same if there is a scratch, then it will curl up in this particular place, Verified! Well, how to use it is clear to everyone. We put the worm in the lock into the lock and put on the head and turn clockwise.
  • 2. Using a puller. Buy bolts, screws. The screw is screwed into the discs all the way so that the bolt head protrudes from the lock for a centimeter so that the puller is hooked. The puller looks like this. The same way you can open the English lock (pin).

Consider padlocks

Well, everything is simple to open padlocks it makes no sense if it can be bypassed. We take an adjustable wrench 40 centimeters long, the longer the easier it is to wield them. Clamp one of the door doors and bend it over.

Bambing invented this method in 1950, it was based on a simple method. We all played billiards, if we hit the ball 1, then we give him the impact impulse. Ball 1 hitting 2 ball stops, and 2 begins to move. As we know, cylinder locks have two soldiers in each cell. If we hit the upper soldiers, they will remain in place and the lower ones will go down to the bottom for a few nano seconds. If at this moment we start to turn the lock, it will be opened as easy as it seems the first time. According to this method, they invented spring pistols that hit the soldiers. But just recently a brilliant thing was invented by the BUMP key, see Photo 11.

Now I will explain the meaning of the alteration. We need to open the lock, which is a good company; we get the key from the same lock; we pierce the grooves to the maximum secret length, now we grind off the nose and the key stop, this is done so that the key after we insert it will leave a gap between the key and cylinder 0, 5-1,0mm. Now if we hit the end of the key, it will go 0.5-1.0mm into the cylinder, causing the soldiers to drop down. Advanced energy to the lower soldiers and at this moment we turn the key. Even Mul-T-Lock and absolutely any cylindrical locks with vertical and horizontal cutting of secrets can be opened this way.

Good luck in your endeavors and do not break the law!
