Lishi pick tools and Lishi automotive picks are some of the best tools on the market for picking and decoding today's high security automotive locks. We are an official distributor for Lishi Tools and use them regularly in the San Francisco area.


Once upon a time, locksmiths had to solely rely on 'pick and read' techniques, where they had to use a magnifying glass and a flashlight to see and approximate the position of the picked tumblers. As you can imagine, even if this method was effective, it was prohibitive to locksmiths because juggling lock picks, a magnifying glass, and a flashlight was pretty cumbersome. Lishi lock picks like the "Original Lishi 2-in-1 tools" works on the same premise as the "pick and read" technique in a highly portable device. Lishi tools allow locksmiths to individually pick the tumblers until the lock turns. Once the lock has been turned, the Lishi pick tool then allows the locksmith to then decode the tumblers one at a time. But the 2-in-1 tools are not the only product of Lishi. They also make a number of direct read decoders and other lock pick devices. Thankfully, locksmiths can easily purchase authentic Lishi lock pick tools at American Key Supply today.
