Lock picks are a set of locksmith tools. This set includes all the necessary picks and tension wrenches to open conventional pin and tumbler locks. Using lockpicks on a locked door will provide a bonus to the character's lockpicking skill. An advanced set also exists.[1]

Lock picks are replaced by Bobby Pins in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.


Lock picks increase your Lockpick skill by 20% when used, but only on your bread-and-butter tumbler lock. Mechanized doors and elevators require Electronic Lock Picks to break into.

Lockpicks are only to be used in emergencies requiring the opening of doors or locked containers when the proper key is unavailable. The proper use of the lockpick item will increase the successful chance of using the Lockpick skill."
