Kronos Multipick Lock Pick Gun Part 2

If you missed part one of this mini series you can find it here.

In part one, we went through the theory of the Kronos EPG and also showed some practical examples where we showed it in action picking a selection of locks.

In Part two we go through everything else, and that’s quite a lot! The full kit version of the Kronos is packed full of additional tools to make your life a little bit easier all wrapped up in a nice foam cut case. As you will see from the unboxing, there’s plenty of gadgets inside.

Probably my favourite thing (other than the Kronos itself) is defiantly the circular tensioning tool (TNT-20-v3) allows you a lot more vision when attempting to pick, it also allows a more steady pressure because you can keep your hands still and it’s really the spring that keeps the tension on the barrel of the lock. As you’d expect from Multipick a perfectly machined piece of aluminium and as an engineer, I love the attention to detail with the small ball bearings to centre the guide. It won’t fit every lock and that’s why they gave you the additional tensioners but 9/10 times it’s extremely useful.

Next, we have the Flip-it tool, I will confess I’ve personally not needed to use this… Yet. I can see where it would be useful, if you had to relock a door after picking or if the lock only functioned in one direction and you, unfortunately, had guessed the wrong direction. I guess it really allows you to use a tensioner in any direction that is comfortable for the pick and worry about the direction of the cam after, which is a nice feature. A electric shutter door lock also comes to mind:

So all in all a fantastic kit, and though I did toy with the idea of buying the Kronos alone without the kit, the extras pay for themselves just by making your life a bit easier.
