How to lockpick/where to get tools

Submitted by 0siris in Shoplifting (edited )

I can't seem to find any lockpicks sets, probably due to the stigma that they will be used by thieves instead of locksmiths (believe me they will be) but what can I use to pick locks QUICKLY and efficiently, Or are there any chain stores that carry them?

Would the tools in this set suffice? https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.6-piece-precision-pick--tweezer-set.1000841249.html?eid=PS_GOOGLE_HD+%7C+E-Comm_E-Comm+%7C+Shopping+%7C+Tools_Tools_pla-322132998857&gclid=CjwKCAjws8vaBRBFEiwAQfhs-Nq7CY4ip1jq8tFc_9dLoozDk2-jVZyZkXE9voqXy6LHX4uRZ4oZQRoCqjAQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=CN74sI75sdwCFVSvTwodPvEGxA and if so which ones would i use?

Some folks used to make their own using the metallic bristles that fall off street sweepers, then filing or angle grinding one into a hook and one with teeth. A lot of street sweepers use plastic bristles now and it's a damn shame.

I did build my picks on my own. Picking fast requires practice and not just good picks.

I got my set on amazon. just pick the one day shipping and it will be there the next day. also get a little see through lock to practice picking. it will show you how easily and quickly you can pick a lock. those tools in the picture would work but you would be better off with a hair pin.

edit: in fact, you could open a lock like a key with a hair pin. Put a little torsion on the lock and scrub the pins with the hair pin

Would I need two hairpins? or do I just stick it in and rotate it after puts it in and moving it back and forth to hit the pins?. If you could make it a bit more step by step that would be fantastic.

One will do. stick the hair pin in the lock and put slight clockwise torsion on it. Move the pin back and forth until the lock comes open. youll probably only have to move it back and forth twice. Go look up how a lock works, and how lock picking works and youll see what im talking about. Its easy as shit.

Edit: make sure your hairpin is touching the bottom part of the key hole, where the key cut out comes in contact with. It will open right up my friend.

Petland locks for reptiles (I've told you I think) my house if I lock myself out and display cases, cabinets with electronics. I can't see the lock for the reptile cabinet because its on the other side of a wood panel but I think it's this one or something similar

If you wanna seriously get into lockpicking look into kits that are popular on /r/lockpicking

Otherwise just get urself a good rake and a tension wrench and you'll pop that lock in like 5 secs.
