Lock picking - NEW TO ME



Hey guys! I just got my beginner's lock pick set today! from deal extreme!(5 bucks go check it!)

You know you always read articles about lock picking, but never really try? Its awesome!
They say that there is this feeling that you get, like hands on feeling, when the lock opens, or when you are doing it right. It is so true, i got the hang of it in like 10 min.

I was picking my door, 5 pin tumbler lock. The first time, i have no idea what i was doing, just "going at it", then it unexpectedly opens!!!!!!
So then i tried again, this time, raking it a few times first, placing just enough force on the tension wrench . You'll know it too, from the clicks and slides of the pins going up and down vibrating the metal tension wrench in your hand. You can totally feel it!


Here's some picture if you don't know how a tumbler lock works!



Take a read if you guys wanna know it in detail, knowing the lingo, and all the tips.

Any questions!? oh did i mention its FUN!?

  8. I was surprised how easy that thing was when I first did it. My problem was that I couldn't find "official" tools any where so I manufactured my own set of different sized tension wrenches and pics out ordinary paper clips and some thick wire.

  10. I can get my practice locks open 10/10 times but REAL house and door locks are much more difficult because they use secure pins and other deterrents.
