A subreddit dedicated to the sport of lockpicking.
Do these exist in padlocks. There's a few at work (gold mine in gold smelting room door and store room door) obviously I can't pick these. I want to buy a padlock if possible with the U shaped double bitted keys. They have really piqued my interest. Are they only available in door locks?
Sent this vids to mods for a belt consideration, figured I'd share it. 2m50s long, I had to reset and start again at 1m40s but she opened for me, even with the stage fright 🤣
So I’m just getting into lockpicking and I’m looking for some good recommendations. For example certain picks and starter locks,any help is appreciated
I started about a month ago. I haven’t quite figured out security pins yet, but standard pins are no problem!
This thing is kicking my ass. Pin number 1 is the normal pin and its so low that it sets immediatly. I thought that that would make it easier but i guess im just bad 🤣🤣🤣
I found this lock in the wild and because I'm not picking a lock that isn't mine I'm curious where I could get one or how hard these are
(Plus price if you know)
Recently acquired this set from my grandfathers old collection of garage stuff, they appear handmade, in a fan with 20+ more flat metal sheets.(some are aluminum foil thin and some are so thick they hardly flex) Are these sufficient/good for getting into lock picking or is this an advanced set? Also pictured is a master lock i found (keyless and locked) on the ground about a week ago. Been practicing, got it open once but i closed it and can’t get it since.😂 Any and all advice welcome and appreciated!
I'm looking for good everyday carry and I'm wondering if I should get the covert companion or just carry picks around in a case.
What is rapping a lock? how does it work? and how do i do it
I saw this on the sparrows shop page!
Just submitted the picking video of this one for orange belt and decided to see if I could rake it. Opened in 5 seconds several times back to back. Is this normal?
Special thanks to u/LockPickingFisherman for these beauties (assa desmo, goal d9, keyless Canada post lock) and all his help and encouragement. Brown belt here I come!

I just found a couple squire cp60cs 5-wheel code locks in a box while sorting through my storage. I know they both have the same code but I've forgotten them... I've been trying to find the combination for a couple hours but there's a lack of information online about these specific ones and the wheels don't bounce like others in the same series. If anyone has any experience, I'd appreciate the advice.
Now that my green belt is approved, can I take down the videos from YouTube and/or replace them with somewhat cleaned up versions? I'm happy with my progress in lock sport, although it is still all a bit shaky. But I'm not really (or rather really not) proud of the quality of the videos I posted.
My first two are white belt, I nailed down the Ace laminated and got the yellow. The Ace brass is green and let me just say it's a pain! I'm going to see about a orange belt today. Having goals has really made this a fun sport!
Do I have to pick the pins in a certain order? With my generic lock, I can just stick the pin tool in there and play with the pins in any order and it'll open within a minute or two. With my Master's and Brinks locks it's much harder. Can I use virtually any bar for tension as long as it fits? Do the pins have to be pushed all the way down or do they catch at certain depths? I'm also working on learning the vocabulary so please explain in noobs terms, thank you friends.
