Who is This Set For?
The Ghost Set was designed to be an everyday carry set and is ideal for pin tumbler locks.
It is also perfect for the beginner looking to acquire their first set. The selection of tools allows for anyone starting out to tackle very simple locks and progress all the way up to high-security pin tumbler locks without any additional tools. Furthermore, because beginners tend to be rougher on their tools, it is far less likely that a novice will break a GSP.
Short Hook – Peterson Hook #1
The Short Hook is arguably the most used and versatile tool in any lock pickers tool set. Mastery of the hook is often correlated with mastery of lock picking itself.
Specs: 0.025″ thickness, GSP, flat tip on the hook
Deep Hook – Peterson Hook #5
The Deep Hook has an extra long reach that allows a lock picker to reach pins further back in the stack without chance of oversetting more forward pins. These picks are extremely helpful for setting high cut pins that are behind low cut pins.
Specs: 0.025″ thickness, GSP, round tip on the hook
The City Rake – Peterson Long Ripple
The City Rake — getting its name from its resemblance to a city skyline — is a very long rake that mimics the cuts of a key. By simply rocking this pick up and down within the lock, you can very quickly set pins to the shear line. These picks are very effective against locks with high cut pins in the front and back and low cut pins in the center.
Specs: 0.025″ thickness, GSP
The Peterson Reach
The Peterson Reach is a specially designed pick that has a long curved hook. This modification allows for deep access within the lock and the ability to work behind lower cut pins. It also has a lower profile on the shank to squeeze into tight places and is great for rotating pins if you find yourself working with high-security locks.
Specs: 0.025″ thickness, GSP
Bogota – Peterson Bogie #1 and #2
The Bogota is arguably the best and most commonly used rake and is a must for any beginner looking for their first lock pick set. These rakes have rounded and polished peaks that reduce friction and allow them to slip and slide like butter within the lock while raking. They are very effective against high-low-high-low pin cuts, which is something many other types of rakes cannot claim.
Purple Handle Specs: 0.018″ thickness, GSP
Black Handle Specs: 0.025″ thickness, GSP
Pry Bar – No Teeth
The Pry bar is a top of the keyway tensioning tool that grants the picker more room to maneuver their picks as well as torquing the plug from the center rather than the bottom. These tools are extremely useful for locks with tighter keyways, radical pin cuts, or security pins.
Specs: 0.040″ thickness, GSP
Tension Wrenches – No Flex
This set includes six GSP bottom of the keyway GSP tension wrenches with no flex. All with different specifications.

What is GSP
GSP stands for government steel picks and is exclusively a Peterson Manufacturing product. While most lock picks are made of carbon steel, Peterson GSP picks are made of a special stainless steel alloy that is much stronger than simple carbon steel.
What this means for you as a picker is that your picks will last significantly longer than traditional and cheaper picks. In the long run, this will save you a lot of money in replacing picks. This also makes this kit ideal for those starting out as beginners tend to initially be rougher on their tools.
