We 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 - We will be moving to bigger, better offices during the month of June and this, coupled with all of the major training work and conference appearances throughout May and June, will considerably delay order fulfillment.

Please note that orders received at this time may not ship out until mid-June. There will be another brief disruption of fulfillment in the run-up to Black Hat this summer.

Our students and clients can expect bigger, better offerings from our equipment catalog based around the new material that we will be prsenting this summer. Don't miss out!

 


Twelve Piece Pick Set - $30

We are thrilled with this entirely new design for our pick kit. Like before, it contains six pick tools... but now with a wider assortment of tips. Using higher strength steel and updated die patterns, we now offer a short hook, a deep reach curve, an offset diamond (DeForrest) pick, a standard half-diamond, a hollow half-diamond, and a multi-hump wave jiggler (a.k.a. Faux-Gota) pick.

All of these picks have undergone extensive tumbling and polishing for a finish that is sure to feel great in your hands... and in your locks!

Paired with these new pick tools are no less than six turning tools. In a wide range of thicknesses and fabricated from six different metal stocks, there will almost never be a lock that won't fit one of these almost perfectly!

These picks are all made in the United States.

 

Custom Jackknife Pick Kit - $40

Many 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 aluminum 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!

 

Titanium Bogotá Pick Set - $35

Praised as perhaps the smallest and simplest set of pick tools ever developed, the Bogotá set consists of a triple-hump and single-hump pick tool, each with a bent handle designed to act as a turning tool for the other. This Bogotá set is made of titanium alloy to reduce its magnetic footprint.

 

Covert Jiggler Tools - $8

Jiggler tools have long been a favorite of pen testers, police, repossession agents, and others who seek a quick 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.

 

Convertible Tubular Lockpick - $90

This 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.

 

Plug Spinner - $80 - NEW ITEM

Spending the time to pick a lock only to realize that it's been turned in the wrong direction can be unbelievably frustrating, particularly when one discovers that it's more difficult to pick in the opposite (and desired) direction. A plug spinner can often be employed to address the situation, and this model is especially useful due to its slim profile and high strength spring (spare spring and alternate spin head included).

 

 


Blank Keys - $20 / $50
per bag of ten
Select Your Keys...
Pre-Scored Keys...

In 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.

Specifically 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.

 

Code-Cut Keys - $5 / $10

Key Type

If 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 blanks available.

We stock the following key blanks: KW1, KW11, SC1, SC4, M1, Y1, AR1, & WR5.

We 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.

NOTE - 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.

 

Impressioning File w/ Handle - $35

There 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.

 

Mini Magnifier - $10

While 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.

 

Thickness Gauge - $20

If 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 advisable to file for every bitting depth.

 


Under Door Kit - $15

Many pen testers are blown away the first time that they see (or get to try) using an Under Door Tool like the Keedex K-22. Students in our trainings, however, know that we have little love for that particular incarnation of such a device, and that we typically advocate making your own. This kit contains all of the necessary components, save for a piece of bare rod stock.

You supply the thin metal rod (from your local hardware store or even just as a found item when you're on the job) and the kevlar cord, ring handle, tape, and heat shrink tubing are all you need to instantly create multiple Under Door attack devices. The small Gear Ties are incredibly useful and infinitely reusable items to assist with cord management and storage.

Usage Instructions

Keep one of these small and lightweight kits in your tool bag and you're always good to go, without any of the hassle and annoyance associated with attempting to travel with a four-foot-long rod in your luggage!

* Provided it is not a problem during shipping, this kit also includes some source of fire to activate the heat-shrink tubing.

 

Traveler Hooks - $5 / $10

This 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. This 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 steel.

 

Shove It Tool - $10

This "Shove It" tool is often paired with the Super Mica door shims seen below...


Super Mica Door Shims - $15

A decent compliment to Traveler Hooks, these thin tools are also used to loid doors and pop latches. One steel and the other polymer, tools like this are able to slip into especially narrow spaces and also have the ability to flex and bend in ways that the solid Traveler Hook cannot.

 

Lucky Number 7 & Tricky Number 3

To round out one's latch-bypassing tool assortment, some of the world's top penetration testers will have a number seven and/or a number three in their bag. Everyone has their own technique for employing them, and everyone chooses their own way of sourcing them. Not available as an individual purchase, these two useful digits are a part of our Red Teamer bag below!

 

Bump Keys - $2.50

We don't tend to use bump keys often on covert entry jobs due to the fact that they are a bit noisy, they can attract 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. NOTE - Please check your local laws before ordering, these keys are prohibited in certain states and municipalities!

 

Bump Hammer - $25 - NEW ITEM

Many people craft bump hammers themselves or simply use found items such as screwdriver handles, butter knives, etc. There's nothing wrong with that if it works for you... but bumping sure does seem to work better with a proper hammer. This is a fine one, with just enough flex in the handle and no small weights needing to be added to or removed from the head.

 


USB Borescope - $55 - NEW ITEM

This snake camera can make the difference between going into a room blind or knowing where security cameras or motion detectors are placed. While most individuals opt to connect this camera to a small laptop or netbook in order to view the feed... some very industrious types will hack the drivers and operate the USB port on an Android table or smartphone in host mode in order to view the image feed right in the palm of their hand!

 

Flat Gaffer Tape - $3

It's undoubted that gaffer's tape is an essential part of just about any tool bag or field kit. However, toting around a massive roll is rather impractical. This, however, is simply two yards of this fine adhesive wrapped around a solid plastic card. It's useful in dozens of ways... but most useful in the situation when you didn't plan on needing it!

 

Kevlar Line - $12 - NEW ITEM

A solid field kit can always benefit from some manner of cord or strong line. This is a 25 foot section of kevlar line with a 200 pound test strength.

 

H&K Multitool - $40 - NEW ITEM

Many folk include a pair of pliers in their tool bag, as these can aid in the shimming of padlocks or the crafting of improvised bypass tools. A far better option, in our opinion, is a high quality multitool. This H&K folding multitool sports a wire cutter, various blades, assorted screwdrivers, and more... all in addition to the heavy-duty needlenose pliers on the forend which open with spring-assist.

 

Photon Freedom Micro Light - $13 - NEW ITEM

This is, hands-down, the best micro light we've ever encountered. Pen testers, outdoor enthusiasts, or just plain everyday citizens will appreciate its incredible brightness, rugged construction (we've had ones go through the wash multiple times and not suffer one bit), and amazing feature set.

Not merely an on/off toggle, the momentary pushbutton on these lights can select through a whole range of options and features. Easily choose from low or high brightness and anything in between... or switch to blink/signal mode, strobe mode, and even S-O-S pulsing.

This light comes with lanyard and clip attachments, making it suited for hands-free use in all situations.

 

Folding Binoculars - $25 - NEW ITEM

These are the smallest folding binoculars that we could source which are still high quality and of a useful shape. With 8x magnification and at barely over 6 oz in weight, they are a great addition to any field kit.

 

 

Flat Pry Bar - $25 - NEW ITEM

Mini Pry Bar - $6

While we do not advocate the use of heavy prying or breaking tools on physical pen tests (destructive entry is not covert and should typically be out of scope in one's contract) it is sometimes useful to have the means to "adjust" certain doors and access panels in a manner that lets you slip tools or other hardware around their edges. Having small pry bars like these can often make the difference between a simple shimming attack or a longer, slower picking or impressioning process. Just be careful!

The flat model is one of the smallest and -- even more importantly -- the slimmest we've ever seen. It's so much easier to keep this in your pocket than anything else... well worth the expense. (NOTE - while some people enjoy wrapping the handle of their flat pry-bars in paracord, the bare and plain item is what we ship.)

 

 

Badges & Holder - $10 - NEW ITEM

It's remarkable how much easier social engineering gets if you are wearing a simple ID badge on a lanyard. Don't trouble yourself with buying large packages of plastic cards and so forth, however... This set of three cards and a retractable lanyard are sure to fit your needs just fine.

 

Tactical Shoulder Bag - $55

For the folks who don't like to carry all of their tools in their hands -- or their pants pockets -- we suggest this versipack-style shoulder bag. Low profile, but roomy enough for just about anything you could need... this is what many of our friends rely upon during pen tests and it is the basis of our Red Teamer kits seen below.

 

Fisher Tactical Pen - $25 - NEW ITEM

Waterproof Notepad - $6 - NEW ITEM

While some people take notes in the field on their smartphone, some of us like to rely on tried and true technologies such as pen and paper. These have evolved over time, however... and this Fisher Space Pen (in non-reflective Tactical finish) plus a Rite in the Rain waterproof notepad will guarantee your ability to jot anything down in all weathers and conditions.

 

Handcuff Key - $2.50 - NEW ITEM

Handcuff Shim - $7 - NEW ITEM

Few individuals working in the private sector have a need to escape handcuffs with any regularity, but students from our restraints class and law enforcement trainings know the value of these items. If you'd like to acquire one or both with your order, toss them in your cart!

The handcuff shim is titanium alloy, to reduce its magnetic footprint. The handcuff key is a Smith and Wesson new style key, which is perfect for converting into the "Ultimate Cuff Key" as seen in this presentation.

 

 


TV Tuner Dongle - $30 - NEW ITEM

For a quick and easy way to tap into assorted security camera feeds, this little TV tuner might just do the trick. We include it in the Pro version of our Red Teamer equipment bag, but it's also available separately here.

 

Wireless Camera Detector - $25 - NEW ITEM

This pocket gadget can help you assess a given area for wireless signals, particularly those relating to security cameras. There is also an optical filter designed to aid in determining the placement of said cameras, even when they are hidden behind dark filters.

 

AD2USB - $150

Veterans of our Wired Signals training know this device well. Used in the attacking of alarm systems, this is what allows an individual to sniff from the alarm bus or even inject additional commands straight to the panel.

 

Posi-Taps - $25

Used in conjunction with tools such as the AD2USB, Posi-Taps enable splicing into sheathed wires without actually cutting or disturbing the target line. This is a pack of 12 reusable taps in and a spare segment of alarm wire.

 

Rare Earth Magnets - $20 - NEW ITEM

If you detect a magnetic door or window sensor during the penetration of a target facility, proper and precise placement of strong magnets will often confuse it and prevent an access control system from registering a door open event. This is a set of five flat disc magnets and one cube.

 

Capacitance Wire - $10 - NEW ITEM

It's astonishing how simple some bypasses are... if you encounter a door that uses a capacitance-based exit bar (which relies on electrodermal conductance) it is often possible to trigger the unlock command from the outside using a segment of wire. This is a 2 foot length of moldable, solid-core copper that should usually do the trick.

 

Hand Warmers - $3 - NEW ITEM

Perhaps the most amusing of electronic system bypasses is the triggering of passive infrared Request-to-Exit systems by means of waving hot or cold items in the sensor field. These wintertime hand warmers are quick to activate and easy to transport. Combined with stiff wire or kevlar line, it's often quite possible to trigger a door unlock event by using these.

 

 


Advanced Spool Pin Lock - $60

This 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 exercises 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.

 

Mult-Wheel Combo Lock - $20

Test 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.

 

Wafer Lock - $8

Wafer 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.

 

Training Lock Set - $120

Progressive 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 against the brass of a key blank) but one will start to encounter more and more plain brass pins mixed in as the locks progress. Since these key pins are softer, they will make more subtle marks, forcing a closer inspection of the key blank during the impressioning process.

 


Full Training Kit - $250

This is the full kit of supplies that is issued to students in CORE Group physical penetration training sessions. It contains everything necessary to attempt all of the exercises in our introductory course. This plastic case (included) contains...

  • Our 12-piece Lockpick set
