We deployed to a remote rural area to conduct surveillance on a target. We needed a location to covertly stage the team and the only available area was behind a locked gate belonging to another government agency. We had permission to use the property but did not have keys. I did not have my lock picks with me. I made a rake out of a heavy duty paper clip, the tension tool was made from the metal clip on a BIC pen. A little gun oil into the lock and we were in a couple of minutes.
