Eddie the Wire as he prefers to be called has created a new sickle-shaped lock pick that he claims cuts the time to pick a lock by 20 percent and makes impossible opens possible.
Eddie says it started when he made a copy of a pick allegedly used by Harry Houdini, but in his words, It didnt work at all.
Thats when Eddie began tinkering with it and came up with the design he calls Eddies Iron, which also happens to be the name of his new book published by Loompanics, that details how to make the pick.
Eddie says, It sounds hokey to say, but I almost didnt write the book because it makes difficult lock- picking easy.
But have no fear. Eddie says his design wont set off a crime wave because, as he puts it, only .03 percent of forced entries are used doing skillful lock-picking tricks.
