i have just made my first homemade lockpick and iam wondering if anybody has any tips
Picking a lock isn't as easy as simply inserting a pin and wiggling it around until the lock opens. Most locks, especially the popular pin cylinder lock, can be opened by using two tools: a pick and a tension wrench. The tension wrench is inserted first, and the lock is opened by applying pressLearning Sensitivity
Beginners may not be able to open a lock on their first try, but old hands at lock picking will tell you that with the use of a few proven techniques, just about anyone can become a master lock picker in no time. One of the most often suggested lock picking tips we hear about at Lockpicksonline is to be "sensitive."
Being sensitive doesn't mean being overly concerned with people's feelings (although that can be very beneficial in many situations!). When we say sensitive, we mean learning how to be hyper-aware of sound and touch. You should try picking locks in complete silence, for example, as it's important to listen to the sound of the pick as it passes over the pins.
Sensitivity also goes beyond sound, sight and touch. We've found it very helpful to visualize the mechanics of the lock, and project your senses into the lock as you are actually working it--this will give you a picture of how the lock is responding to your manipulations. So go ahead--relax, have fun, and get in touch with your sensitive side!
way to cut and paste
he just likes wigglin things
I have a lock pic set and its how i lock and unlock my locker in my room since i lost my key
what kinda picks? i have always been interested in lockpicking but never knew where to begin
this is the first lock pick set i ever owned
also another suggestion is for you to get a thin(thickness) tension wrench and a small(width) tension wrench, because when you start out picking shitty locks, they usually will have smaller sections for the straight base to fit in and the wrench my be in the way or even be making you miss the last pin(meaning the first...you'll understand)
i went to that site and ordered that book already so between that and your info i'm in
that book comes with a pick set too...just not the smaller wrenchs
it didnt say that in the descrition so even better and what about filin down the wrenches in the set? or just buy the right ones?
all you need now is a decoder ring
bought my two sets from snap on tools with instructions for cars and house locks.some states require lic.or off to jail you go!
Filing down the wrentchs works too.
Not to give my address out to any of you junior lockpickers!!!
Junior? I pick chastidy lock for breakfast...just dont tell my wife ;)
I am actually shocked that there was no mention of a 12 guage pump action shotgun used for picking locks...actually shocked...
I have always wanted to get the "Masterkey" attachment for my S&W M&P 15.
...to open a door, just blow the shit outta it with a 12 gauge shotgun
have thought about that earlier...much less time consuming!
blowing the doors open wakes the neighbors and usually the people in the house your robbing
I learned to pick locks from an old timer, he gave me a set of very nice lock picks but said that they could be bad to be caught with as it might be deemed as burglary tools. He then taught me to make due with items which were at hand. I became somewhat proficient with just every day items such as paper clips. I agree that practice, practice, and more practice is important, but the reality is that unless you need this skill everyday, it is a dubious use of your time. I can still manage to get into almost anything I try, but it does take a little longer than when I was practicing regularly. It has been a useful skill, but one I do not brag about. I do like the challenge when I am confronted with a situation that requires this skill, and I do surprise myself when I manage to open the lock. Paddle locks often only need to have a shim to open the hasp.
