Raking

Raking (or rake picking, scrubbing) is a style of lockpicking used to quickly open pin-tumbler and wafer locks. Raking is characterized by the pick being lightly brushed against the components, often with an up-down motion to simulate a wide variety of component positions. Tension may also be varied while raking to increase the chances of picking the lock.

Picks specifically designed for rake picking are commonly known as "rakes". Wafer rakes may also be referred to as "auto-jigglers", due to the popularity of wafer locks on automobiles. Though the choice of rake is personal preferrence, the C and S rakes are the most popular.
