offer all of our students and clients the opportunity to purchase
and use the same materials which are featured in our training
courses and which we use during penetration tests. If you
would like to add any of the following items to your own toolkit,
feel free to order them using the buttons below.
NOTE - Due to The CORE Group's key staff being out of the country at events such as Positive Hack Days and CONFidence, orders are temporarily unable to ship until June 2nd. All orders which were pending as of this morning (May 17th) have been processed and are shipping out shortly. We thank you for your understanding and your business!
Blend Pick Kit - $30
have created relationships with vendors and suppliers of a
wide range of lockpicking tools in order to be able to pick
and choose specific items from their inventory and assemble
them into a single, simple beginner's kit. By mixing an assortment
of both flexible spring steel and hardened stainless steel
we seek to give new lockpickers a wide range of equipment
at the lowest price possible. The beginner's blend set includes
two hooks (a standard and a euro slim), two half diamonds
(a thick hard model and a thin slender one), and two rakes
(a snake and a Bogotá-style wave jiggler). These picks
are all made in the United States.
Jacknife Pick Kit - $40
vendors offer some variety of "folding" pick set,
and after experimenting with many varieties of them we determined
this particular model to be the finest one available. It offers
superior stability and solid friction locking of the tools
by means of the large arm on the side. The alimunum body is
well-milled, and the tension tool locks in place smoothly.
The pick tips in this particular kit are a custom assortment
that was specifically selected by The CORE Group. You won't
find any ball picks or wedge rakes in here!
Jiggler Tools - $8
tools have long been a favorite of pen testers, police, reposession
agents, and others who seek a quck method of opening wafer
locks. Filing cabinets, access panels, and even car doors
are often vulnerable to attack with jiggler tools. The problem
with most jigglers sets, however, is that they contain many
tools of questionable value and often the tools are far too
large to fit comfortably one one's keychain. This special
set of jigglers has been designed to offer only the most useful
tools in a compact package, perfect for inclusion next to
keys in your pocket.
Tubular Lockpick - $90
is one of the finest tubular picking tools it has ever been
our pleasure to use. Not only is the whole unit constructed
out of metal parts, but the picking head features a unique
"7-pin to 8-pin convertible" feature. It's like
having two tools in one! This pick also comes with a full
service kit and spare parts supplies in order to keep working
for you well into the future.
Keys - $10 / $25
per bag of ten
order to impression a key for a lock, it is necessary to have
the proper blank. The CORE Group stocks key blanks in a variety
of keyways, geared towards the most common locks seen in the
North American market. These blanks are all brass and they
are only sold in bags of ten.
for penetration testers who seek to use them for impressioning
under adverse or stressful conditions, we also make all these
keys available in pre-scored 0-0-0 cut style. Learn
more about that here.
Keys - $2.50
you are embarking on a specialized impressioning process or
perhaps attempting a master-key decoding attack, we are willing
to code-cut keys for you. These keys are priced the same as
our bump keys or our pre-scored keys, provided we have the
stock the following key blanks: KW1, KW5*, SC1, SC4, M1, Y1,
Kwikset keys are actually available in a number of interesting
formats and designations, most of which apply to the shape
of the head on the key bow. The KW1 key is officially a 5-pin,
but the same Kwikset "K bow" is available on a 6-pin
key. The KW5 and KW10 keys are both 6-pin, fitting in the
same Kwikset keyway, but they have differing bows. They are
an ornamental head and a Titan head, respectively. If you
are seeking a 6-pin Kwikset key, we can accomodate you as
long as you aren't too particular about the aesthetic look
of the final product.
are also willing to acquire other blanks if possible, should
your key needs be more specialized. You must email us first
before specifying that option above, but know that we will
always do the best we can.
- If you are ordering code-cut keys, please include the specifics
in the "comments" section of your order so that
we may be certain to keep everything straight.
File w/ Handle - $35
are many files available for impressioning, but we have found
this particular style to work very well for us during penetration
testing. And we are not alone in this opinion... Find me ten
locksmiths, and I'll show you at least nine who would swear
by Grobet Swiss files for this task. These small half-round
files come with removable plastic handles in order to store
and transport them more easily.
Magnifier - $10
large tabletop impressioning lamps are a common sight in locksmith
shops and during lock-opening competitions, large lamps are
less than practical for covert field work. This tiny magnifier
tool, however, is ideal for penetration testing. Barely larger
than a short stack of quarters, this tool provides astonishing
45x magnification and even features a small LED lamp. Batteries
and a black carrying pouch are included.
Gauge - $20
you want to check how well you are progressing during an impressioning
attack, a thickness gauge such as this one may help you. Many
covert entry professionals and even practicing locksmiths
opt to mark the face of the dial with small lines in order
to have a visual aid regarding how deep it is adviable to
file for every bitting depth.
Hooks - $5 / $10
item has become a favorite of many locksmiths and penetration
testers. It is very strong and quite useful for loiding doors,
reaching hard to access spots, or just generally poking around.
video that we shot demonstrates the real efficacy of having
such an item in your kit when you're on a job! The red hook
is standard steel, the blue hook is non-magnetic stainless
Keys - $2.50
don't tend to use bump keys often on covert entry jobs due
to the fact that they are a bit noisy, they can attact attention,
and sometimes they can damage a fragile lock. However, we
do discuss them in our trainings and therefore we offer them
here. All our bump keys are $2.50. No volume discounts, because
this already beats most pricing online. NOTE - Please check
your local laws before ordering, these keys are prohibited
in certain states and municipalities!
As mentioned above, Kwikset keys are actually available in
a number of interesting formats and designations, most of
which apply to the shape of the head on the key bow. The KW1
key is officially a 5-pin, but the same Kwikset "K bow"
is available on a 6-pin key. The KW5 and KW10 keys are both
6-pin, fitting in the same Kwikset keyway, but they have differing
bows. They are an ornamental head and a Titan head, respectively.
If you are seeking a 6-pin Kwikset key, we can accomodate
you as long as you aren't too particular about the aesthetic
look of the final product.
Spool Pin Lock - $60
is quite a formidable lock. It is drilled and pinned with
seven chambers. Three chambers have a spool style driver pin.
Three additional chambers have double spool drivers.
(The remaining driver pin is of the basic cylinder style.)
This is an outstanding lock both for individual practice and
also for learning excerises with others. You can use the included
key to field strip the lock and re-pin any number of chambers
with any mix of top pins that you like. Then, give the lock
to an associate without revealing which drivers are installed
where and let them tackle it. You'll not only learn to pick
spool pins, but also how to hunt and feel for them, too.
Combo Lock - $20
your skill in manipulating multiple-wheel dials (such as what
are found on executive briefcases and luggage locks) with
this four-wheel padlock. The combination can be reset in order
to allow others to set a combination that you do not know,
letting you hunt for the sticking points.
Lock - $5
locks are quite common in office spaces. They are found protecting
filing cabinets, desk drawers, and all sorts of access panels.
If you wish to practice attacking them, this lock is a fine
option. You can, of course, find locks such as this at local
hardware stores for a similar price, so it might not be wise
to purchase this all by itself... but it may be something
worthwhile if it's part of a larger order.
Lock Set - $120
training locks have become a very popular way to learn about
lockpicking and train to improve one's skills. This set of
eight locks is used in CORE Group training courses because
it progressively gets harder for both picking and impressioning.
The locks contain not only increasing numbers of pins, they
also start to introduce pick-resistant pins as one proceeds
through the set. For impressioning practice, the locks initially
contain only nickel-silver key pins (the harder metal marks
well agains the brass of a key blank) but one will start to
encounter more and more brass pins mixed in. Since these key
pins are softer, they will make more subtle marks, forcing
a closer inspection of the key blank during the impressioning
Training Kit - $250
is the full kit of supplies that is issued to students in
many CORE Group training sessions. It contains everything
necessary to attempt all of the excercises in our introductory
courses. This plastic case (included) contains...
The 8-piece Beginner's Blend pick kit
8-lock progressive training set (with Schlage C keyways)
padlock featuring simple pins
padlock featuring spool pins
