While lock picking is definitely a hobby that requires practice, the tools and resources needed are not hard to come by. There are many books published about lock picking, and finding information online is easy. While books tend to be more formulaic and detailed, there are many individual postings online outlining lock picking experiences and tricks.

It’s important to remember, however, that individuals posting information online, while entertaining, aren’t always the best lock picking guides. There are many descriptions detailing how to make homemade lock picking tools, for instance, that won’t tell you how to actually use the tools. The best way to learn how to pick a lock, by far, is to purchase the correct tools and read the guides provided by the seller.

Locksmith Tools

Have you ever wondered how someone becomes a professional locksmith? Most states around the country have specific programs at schools or other educational facilities that teach locksmithing. In some states, licenses are not required, and locksmiths simply learn through on-the-job training or apprenticeships.

Regardless of where your local locksmith learned his or her trade, however, you can be sure of one thing: hiring a locksmith costs money. While most locksmiths are professionals with a sincere code of ethics, some locksmiths do take advantage of people needing their services. If you’re locked out of your car, for instance, what alternative do you have but to pay? You know this, and the locksmith knows it too.

We pride ourselves on carrying high-quality tools at a price that’s affordable, and are always willing to help customers with difficult locks. Our online tutorials are designed to provide instructions for basic lock picking as well as exercises for more advanced lock pickers.

With our professional quality locksmith tools, you can have a smooth lock picking experience that’s fast and easy.

Secrets Of Lock Picking

One of the biggest secrets of lock picking is that anyone can do it. Upon reading this, you might be asking yourself, “Well, if that’s the case, then why did I pay that locksmith when I got locked out?” The answer is that you simply didn’t know how easy it could be!

At Lock Picks Online, we’ve helped thousands of people become experts in lock picking, and probably have saved them thousands of dollars in professional locksmith charges. One of the things we’ve learned over the years is that anyone has the ability pick a lock, and just about everyone has fun doing it. Lock picking is a challenging hobby, and many of our customers have found themselves viewing every lock as a new challenge.

When starting out, the first thing you need to learn is how a lock operates. Pin cylinder locks, some of the most commonly used locks around, function with a series of–you guessed it–pins. Each pin is a different weight or length, and when the correct key is inserted, the pins are all raised to a specific level (the shear line), which allows the cylinder to turn. To find out more about pin cylinder locks, read our tutorial called “Basis Lock Picking.”

There are other resources online that describe pin cylinder locks, and we always suggest you learn as much about them as you can. After you have a basic understanding of how locks work, simply get your tools–we have all the lock picking tools you need–and start to practice! It’s fun, it’s challenging and best of all, you’ll never have to pay for opening a lock again!

Learn How to Pick a Lock Yourself

Have you ever locked yourself out of your car or home? Fortunately for professional locksmiths, just about every one has. Unfortunately for the person locked out, however, they’ve probably had to pay money–sometimes up to a hundred dollars–just to get back in.
At Lock Picks Online, we think you basically have three choices. You can vow never to get locked out, you can accept the fact that at some point you’ll have to pay to get into your car or home, or you can learn how to pick a lock yourself. If you choose the latter, we think you’ve made the right decision.

Lock picking–contrary to popular belief–is actually not difficult. All you need are the right tools and a little instruction. At Lock Picks Online, we have a wide variety of picks, tension wrenches, lock pick guns, tubular lock picks, jiggler keys, and more. So don’t get mad at your locksmith, but don’t pay either! Read our tutorials, get your locksmith tools, and you’ll never have to worry about getting into your car, home, or cabinet again.

Here’s a great solution: get a set of lock picking tools and learn how to open locks by yourself! Not only will it save you money the next time you lock yourself out, but you will quickly find it to be a fun and challenging hobby. You don’t have to have a professional license to get locksmith equipment–simply visit us at Lock Picks Online and you’ll find everything you need.

Many of our customers start with our starter lock picking set, which includes two picks and a tension wrench. For people a little more advanced, or those who want to make sure they can get into any pin cylinder lock, we also have more extensive 14-piece and 32-piece sets. These sets include a variety of tension wrenches, picks and key extractors. Or, for fast one-time entry, our standard lock pick gun will do the trick in no time at all.

Not every lock is the same, however. Vending machines, for instance, use pin tubular locks that don’t open with the standard wrench and pick. Rest assured, though, we also carry tubular lock picks as well as padlock shims and warded lock picking sets. So don’t pay a professional ever again–learn a new hobby and save money instead!

“I am so impressed with the set of picks I ordered, I felt like writing to you. My apartment door took about 2 minutes to pop… and this was my 2nd pick ever. (first was my cabinet lock) I opened my cabinet lock in under 5 minutes and with no experience at all. I never thought it would be that easy. Thanks.”
