Lishi GM37 is a 2-in-1 pick and decoder tool designed for locks without wards in the keyway. It’s made of stainless steel and is designed to work on locks for Saab, GMC, Buick, Saturn, Chevrolet, Cadillac, Pontiac, and Suzuki vehicles.
Lishi GM37 is also known as the B106/GM37 2-in-1 tool. Picking and decoding a B106/GM37 keyway lock can be a challenging task, especially for beginners. The B106/GM37 keyway is commonly found on GM vehicles, and picking this lock requires patience, practice, and the right tools. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to pick and decode a B106/GM37 keyway:
Disclaimer: Picking locks without permission is illegal in many jurisdictions. This information is provided for educational purposes only. Always obtain proper authorization before picking any lock.
- Gather the necessary tools: To pick and decode a B106/GM37 keyway, you’ll need a Lishi B106/GM37 2-in-1 decoder and pick.
- Insert the key blank: Insert the key blank into the bottom of the keyway. Apply light to moderate tension in the direction the lock would naturally turn when using the key. This will bind the wafers in the lock, making it possible to pick them.
- Begin picking the lock: Using the lifter, begin to manipulate the wafers inside the lock. The goal is to lift each wafer to the correct height so that its gate aligns with the plug, allowing the lock to turn.
- Feel for binding wafers: As you apply tension with the tension bar, you should feel one or more wafers binding. Gently lift each binding wafer with your lifter until you feel a slight “click” or a subtle movement in the tension wrench. This indicates that the wafer has been set to the correct height. If you accidentally overset a wafer, release some tension on the wrench to let it drop back down and try again.
- Pick all the wafers: Repeat the process of lifting binding wafers until all of the wafers in the lock have been set. When the last wafer is set, the plug should turn, and the lock will be picked.
- Decoding the lock: To decode the lock, insert the decoding portion of the tool into the lock, and carefully measure the height of each wafer. This will provide you with the key cut depths, which can be used to create a working key for the lock.
Remember that picking and decoding locks takes practice, so don’t get discouraged if you don’t succeed right away. With some patience and persistence, you’ll become more proficient at picking and decoding the B106/GM37 keyway.
