Lockpicking devices policy
If you intend to sell on one or more of eBay's international sites, you will need to accept, and we encourage you to carefully review, the User Agreement, policies, and other requirements of that site. You can continue to reach out to the relevant customer service teams on the respective eBay site of your listing or transaction, as may be applicable to the nature of your query.
For legal reasons, you're not allowed to list any lockpicking or locksmithing devices on eBay. See the Additional information section below for more details.
Make sure your listing follows these guidelines. If it doesn't, it may be removed, and you may be subject to a range of other actions, including restrictions of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?
Lockpicking and locksmithing devices are highly regulated in the United States. It's against the law to mail locksmithing devices, or to sell them to unauthorized buyers. Because most eBay purchases are delivered by mail and we can't tell if buyers are authorized, we don't allow these devices on eBay.
