Anyone else adept at lock picking?

It's fun isn't it

I have this kit

And can use it to open just about anything.


One day my dad locked himself out of his truck...'03 F350

I showed up with my kit, and he's like "what's all this now?"

30 seconds to open the door, hopped inside, and had the engine running in another minute

I learned how to do it, cause in my business, I get alot of medication carts and sometimes file cabinets and stuff that are locked. It's actually a very useful skill to have, and so surprsingly simple, you'd be amazed. There are very few locks that can't be defeated with that set above. The ones that are more persistant? Shims, jigglers, and electric pics

I had a dumb class in high school were we pretty much did nothing and were left to our selves. My friend and I figured out how to pick a couple of locks on cabinents and what not using random tools lying around.

I used to mess around with it a little bit. I could do any padlock while my friend was better at deadbolts and doors. They have a lockpick competition at Defcon every year and every year I'm tempted to pick up a set like yours and get back into the groove...

we got a file cabinet at work that was locked with no keys but I had this in the office



I have always wanted to play around with lock picking. Do you have any suggestions on cheap good sets?

I've always wanted to try it too. Plus, at work, I have a lock that I locked to my tool belt to keep up with and subsequently lost the keys to it. Not to mention I have a bad habit of locking keys in my car.

I got very adept at using a slim jim and other access tools to open car doors when I parked cars in college. I could get into virtually any vehicle in under 10 seconds with the right tool.

When I was really young I could pick a master lock in seconds with a two piece set but I was a weird little lad. Haven't tried it in years. It got me into a lot of trouble.

Years ago. No fancy tools either. The local adult movie distributor used to throw their old movies out in the dumpster out back. Once they realized we were running movie extraction missions, they decided to put a padlock on the dumpster. At that point, it became necessary to learn how to pick locks, in the dark. Fun stuff. It was more for the fun of stealth missions than pron, but an added bonus never hurts.

Is it legal to possess lock picking equipment? I know it gets you extra jail time if commiting a crime with it. I was thinking you had to be a licensed lockpick to own that kind of stuff.

I was at a flea market and saw a 7 piece set so why not?, well I was going to help one of my buddies install a new lock in his basement door after it got kicked in. So we got the lock out of the package and I could pick the dead bolt in less than a minute. So we packaged it back up and when to the home depot and look at the locks on display and I picked them till I couldn't find one I couldn't open, the lock guy gave me some funny looks.

Probably depends on the state.

Also depends on the interprtation of the law.

Burglar tools:

- A hammer and screw driver in your toolbox in the Jeep - NOT

- A hammer and screwdriver in your hand while entering the back window of a jewelry store.... YES

His door can be opened a lot faster with a boot, than with a lock-pick!

You should've spent more time shopping for the frame, and less on the lock.
