DIY Vibro-Lockpick


By Bruce Eaton

In a very unique mod that changes an Oral-B Humming Bird from fighting the evils of plaque to helping the evils of lockpicking, comes the Vibrating Lock Pick by Jared Bouck. What a lot of people do not realize is that this is extremely old technology, with just a new take on it.

Lockpicking relies on a very simple process of just pushing up little pins in the lock and rotating the whole shaft to open the door or device. With this vibrating lockpick, you take the process of trying to push up the little pins one at a time to pushing them a thousand times a minute. The actual making of the device is fairly simple but a good starter for anyone wanting to try their hand at some homemade modding. The cost is only $9-15, which is great in case you botch it.

A graduate of Colgate University, Bruce is one of the elite Henro or pilgrims who have completed the 900 mile 88 Temple Pilgrimage on the island of Shikoku, Japan by means of foot power, a feat (no pun intended.... ok maybe alittle) which is no laughing matter. He not only finished this task with a crippling leg injury but he has attained enlightenment according to the monks on Koyasan. Currently the 23 year old is living in San Antonio where he spends his time working as a Data Analyst but also trying to accomplish his next great challenge, drinking all 200 beers at the Flying Saucer. Having recently married his long time friend from college and seen as nuts for doing so, Bruce relishes his life and hot dogs generously. KANPAI!!
