Legal status

United States

In United States, laws concerning possession of lock picks vary from state to state. Generally, possession and use of lock picks is considered equivalent to the possession of a crowbar or any other tool that may or may not be used in a burglary. Illegal possession of lock picks is generally prosecuted as a felony under the category of possession of burglary tools or similar statutes. In many states, simple possession is completely legal as their statutes require proof of intent. In some states, however, possession without appropriate licensure is considered prima facie evidence of intent to commit a crime, rendering simple possession a crime. In California, locksmiths must be licensed by the state. However simple possession is legal as illegal possession must be coupled with felonious or malicious intent. In Utah possession itself is not a crime: intent to commit a crime is also required. Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, and New York also require proof of intent, while mere possession is illegal in Washington, DC.

European Union

Most countries of the European Union don’t regulate the possession of lock picks. All responsibility concerning criminal or legal acts using the picks is taken by the user of the lock picks, when the owner of the lock picks may be involved in the jurisdiction or legal process as an accomplice or witness.

Netherlands

In the Netherlands, owning lock picks is legal, but using them on someone else’s locks without permission is not. There is a lock picking championship, the Dutch Open (organised by TOOOL), which was reported on in the newspapers.

Poland

In Poland according to the delinquency Codeep Act article 129 § 1: 1) possessing, producing or obtaining a lockpick by a person whose profession and occupation doesn’t require it; 2) delivering a lockpick to a person whose profession and occupation doesn’t require it; 3)is punishable with arrest, freedom limitation or fine. § 3 says that that a lockpick is forfeited even if it wasn’t a property of the principal.

United Kingdom

In the United Kingdom, a person who carries a lock pick set (even a home made one) can be charged with the offence of “going equipped”, unless they have a good reason for carrying them. The penalty for this can be upward of 5 years’ imprisonment. The arresting officer must have “reasonable cause”.

New Zealand

In New Zealand, possession of lock picking tools “without lawful authority or excuse” falls under the crime of “being in possession of instrument for burglary”, which carries potential penalties of three years’ prison or a fine of up to 2000 pounds if accompanied by the intent to use it for burglary.
