    Default Lock Pick's in Canada

    Does anyone know if it's illegal to own lock pick's in canada? I want to try it as a hobby, but just curious if its illegal to own the tools. I dont plan on carrying them around with me... couldn't find anything online.

    These guys specifically

    Edit: Found it...

    (2) In giving an authorization under subsection (1) (e), the registrar may impose conditions the registrar considers appropriate, and the registrar may, if he or she considers it appropriate, cancel an authorization he or she has given.

    (3) A person must not cut or make a restricted key, or transfer possession of, lend or otherwise provide a restricted key to another person unless the person cutting, making, transferring, lending or providing the key is

    I had this idea when I was younger.. 14 or so.. I sent away for some learn at home package, or something of the sort.. to this day they still send crap to my parents house.. haha..

    I actually made a couple little tools, there's lots of info online, if you dig around.. I used to practice on my gun cabinet lock and got so good at how it felt, I could easily do it in 3-5seconds..

    You can make your own out of spring steel just make a torque wrench and some rakes with different heads (which pictures are easy to find online) Not hard at all.
    I might be furious but I'm not fast.

    Tension wrench (Many common objects can be used as a tension wrench, provided that they are strong enough to apply pressure to the cylinder and thin enough to just barely fit in the end of the keyhole (you donít need or want the wrench to be so thin that it goes all the way in the keyhole). The tension wrench should also be small enough to afford you plenty of room to maneuver the pick when they are both in the keyhole. You can use a small allen wrench that you file down at the end or you can just use a thin-tipped flathead screwdriver.)
    Pick(s) (You can use a safety pin or a paperclip. To make a pick from a paperclip, straighten the paperclip and then bend it 90 degrees very close to one end. Alternately, you may bend one end into a tiny loop. Needle-nose pliers make bending the paperclip much easier. Make sure whatever you choose for a pick is sturdy, or you will not be able to apply enough pressure to push the lockís pins up without your pick bending.)
    I might be furious but I'm not fast.

    Lockpicks are obsolete.

    Wanna see why I am installing an alarm on the house this week, and changing all the locks to a bump proof style?

    Do a search on youtube for "bumpkey"

    They are tough to get but way better than the homemade ones, a set of southord's are top notch.

    And yes, they make a killer hobby.

    Make sure it's not a wireless alarm. I pissed off the ADT guy when I hacked his alarm system in under 5 mins by scrambling the codes it sends wirelessly.

    No phone I'm making bars for the basement windows (basement unfinished)
    + installing a motion sensor down there just in case so it trips b4 the phone cord can get cut.

    If someone 'really' wants to get in they will no matter what you do but with bump keys there is no sign of forced entry and a lot of insurance companies are accusing victims of fraud, and they are so 'f'n easy to make and use @#$%. All i'm trying to do is make it hard enough they'll go elsewhere.
