    That pick is very sleek! Much lower profile than mine… got a link?

    Also, is the, uh, sturdy part (never learned those terms in English) detachable?

        Thanks!

        There’s one part you imitate the keys’ teeth with, those are the picks with different patterns visible in the photo.

        But then there’s the part with which you imitate the turning movement of a genuine key, and it has to be robust, as it needs to be able to turn the lock while still allowing space for the teeth-aligning-tool from above, so there’s higher forces on smaller surfaces. That’s why I said sturdy :D

        And it kinda looks like the longer part in your pic’s pick (sorry :P) in the back, but I’m not sure.

          Ahhh okay, those are just called turning tools. In this photo they’re located in the keysmart style tool that has covert instruments’ logo on it. The bit on the riv pick that sorta looks like a turning tool is just the plate that allows it to be stored securely in the same keysmart set

            Ah. That is a very neat design then. I thought it was just for the picks, but at that size, it makes way more sense to hold both!

            And thanks for the explainer/vocab primer :D
