What tools and which method should a trained locksmith use to open a locked door?

Locksmiths use a variety of professional lockpicking tools in order to open doors. A trained locksmith should always attempt to pick the lock in the first instance, using a hookpick, slim jim or any other professional tool. More destructive methods such as drilling will be used by locksmiths only as a last resort if the lock cannot be picked.
