Our robust Gov Steel Hook 1 Pick offered in a Plastic Handle. Our top selling GS Plastic Handle (Government Steel Plastic) Series Picks, are made to our "EURO" design approach that incorporates a reduced "shank" height for easier pick access into key ways that were designed to be restrictive. The hard fiber filled handles readily transmit every vibration from your picking, and the pick's light weight makes them extremely agile and responsive. Our Government steel is a legend in itself: Our proprietary steel is high tensile, but at the same time it is ductile instead of brittle. The textured handles insure your grip is secure. Many people however favor our Rubber handle picks when available in the profile they desire (also in Euro design). These customers may work in colder or hotter environments and they enjoy the insulating characteristics of the rubber handles. Others in this group may have arthritis, or just enjoy the comfort that rubber provides. I myself also enjoy rubber handles, and as I tend to place my fore finger on the metal shank while picking I can also feel the vibrations from the lock.

I'm still a beginner, but when I got this pick I achieved my first single pin pick after only succeeding with a rake before. I then managed to pick a lock several more times after that. It has a nice feel and seems to work well. The tip is very sharp, so don't scratch your back with it.
It's the basic go to and for what it is it can't be beat. I've put this one through some abuse and it's straight, solid and shows no ware or tear. It's still amazing to me that they can make the instruments so thin and durable. I'll not get these from anyone else.
I like this pic has a good feel in the hand and allows for good pressure without bending
Another GO TO pick I have in my kit. I have other hooks too, but seem to grab the Peterson first.
Up until now I've been picking with southord hooks. This is now my go to hook. My only regret is not ordering Pertersons picks sooner.
As an avid lock sport enthusiast, I’m always looking for the best tools to add to my set- and with Peterson products, I’ve found it. The feedback is great, the steel is strong, and the finish is almost perfect. This hook has quickly become my favorite and I will be ordering many more in the future.

This is the first think I pull out when I have to pick a lock on the job (as a locksmith). It works 90% of the time, and when it doesn't, I pull out either a thinner, or longer profile, and that does the trick.
I used to prefer longer profiles as much as possible in the past, but ever since I started using this hook, all that has been thrown out the window.
This one is a MUST HAVE in my opinion.
The Petersen Hook 1 in GSP is my absolute go-to pick that can open just about any lock it fits into. The handles on Petersen picks are the best in the industry in my opinion. My lock picking skills really improved when I started practicing with only this pick with a variety of different locks. You will want this same hook in .018 for locks with narrower keyways.
