SNAP! Oh nuts.
This horrific sight does not have to be a problem. Nor does snapping a pick in a lock, or anything else for that matter - there's a simple solution!
Oh gosh, everyone and their mother has had the distinct displeasure of having a key break in the lock - and that's a job for a locksmith, and that's gonna mean time, and hassle, and money! Oh dear.
As lock pickers, we stick a lot more than keys in locks; picks, wrenches, pick gun needles, piano wire - even things like nail-clippers, crochet needles, many, many things that can, and have, or will, snap in the lock.
Using two of the tools from an extractor set, it's almost as satisfying as picking a lock when that broken key comes out!
And here's the rub, it's those damn spring loaded pins that cause the problems, they trap the object tightly, and you need a set of tools that can deal with these problems. Or lose locks, and time, and money!
However - this problem has a solution! A broken key extractor set! I am so surprised how few lock pickers have a set! All day long I get emails "I've snapped a key/pick/etc in my lock, HELP!" and my answer is always the same: GET A BROKEN KEY EXTRACTOR SET, they work!
