eBay- Lockpicking devices policy
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?
For more information, visit the Legal Information Institute's U.S. Code collection:
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.
