Archer using a lock pick

For the person with this skill, please see lockpick.

A lock pick was a device used for opening locks.

A small lock pick was once used by Commander Tucker in an ultimately unsuccessful effort to free Captain Archer from being shackled to a hand hold in a corridor aboard the NX-class starship Enterprise. (ENT: "Acquisition")

The term "lock pick" comes from the final draft script of "Acquisition". The call sheet for the day of filming, Friday 18 January 2002, also listed a lock pick in a section titled "Requirements - Props".

Being held prisoner, Archer asked his fellow inmate Kuroda Lor-ehn how he was able to get rid of his restraints as he was obviously carrying no lock pick. Kuroda told him that his lock pick was his as a subdermal implant in his wrist. (ENT: "Canamar")

In March 2153, Tellarite bounty hunter Skalaar gave a lock pick to Captain Archer, keeping it secret from Klingons who took Archer into custody. This lock pick was thereafter used by Archer while he escaped from Goroth's starship. After his return aboard Enterprise, Archer asked Skalaar if he believed the Klingons had discovered that he had given Archer the lock pick. Skalaar replied that he couldn't think of any reason why they would. (ENT: "Bounty")
