    Default Lockpicking hobby.

    Anyone else into lockpicking as a hobby? Stumbled upon lock picking videos on YouTube in an asmr playlist. Was relaxing, and got a beginners set from "lokko labs" for Christmas. Been neat, I can pick the practice locks from the kit as well as a master 140 padlock I have laying around.

    Anyone else into this?

    A friend of mine was a locksmith, he taught me some tricks. I can open most padlocks. Not so good with doors.
    Had some fun at an old job, used to lock my supervisor's coffee cup in his locker. drove him crazy.

    I may have recently opened a storage locker for a buddy, who's estranged wife cut off the lock and replaced it with a new one.
    The locker was in his name (I was with him when he rented it, and helped him move stuff into it) so no issues there. I suspect it's still technically illegal to do or to even possess the picks.

    I recently had to break into my own storage unit because I forgot my keys, but I just used bolt cutters. They work surprisingly well. Picking it would have made it a lot easier to reuse the lock though.

    I picked up a little bit over the years. Most regular padlocks and residential deadbolts (weiser etc.) are stupid easy to pick. As the saying goes, locks only keep honest people out.

    truth, and people that need to be fast.
    @ExtraSlow check out the lockpicking lawyer on youtube. He is pretty awesome, and exposes just how bad most locks are on the market. His videos are short, his voice is pretty soothing, and pretty informative. He also has a big line of lock picking equipment that you can purchase.

    Yeah LPL is a good channel.
    Most real thieves would just use a cordless angle grinder and open nearly everything in under ten seconds. Picking locks is a terrible method for crime.

    There is an outdoor lock at work that some nubbin lost the key to. I'm very sure I can open it. Will check it out when it's warmer outside.

    Have some other padlocks to start with.

    What I do is threaten ExtraSlow with a cordless angle grinder so that he picks the lock.

    The grinder is not required. Killy just makes a fist.

    Haha! Never forget!

    I've been practicing for deadbolts using a leg press and deadlifts.

    It seemed like an interesting quarantine hobby but I got confused about the legalities of owning and buying a lockpicking set, so I never actually did it. Whoever got you the Lokko set didn't have a problem getting it though?

    Zero issues procuring it. Sold everywhere in the net including Amazon. I think the legalities thing is a myth.

    Just for a nice smelling poop room.

    That's a hate crime. All washrooms are unisex.

    No, I haven't tried to pick that lock at work yet. It's a slightly different design than the ones I have at home, so i want to get more confident first. Want ti to be warmer out too, because it's outdoors and in an awkward location.

    My nine year old can now pick that master 140 pretty reliably. I think this particular example has only 1 pin that really catches.
