I don't know if this is the right board but I'll post it anyway.

Is lockpicking a meme? Can I learn to lockpick by just buying a cheap set of lockpicks and downloading free ebooks?
>>
>>1233639
A 12 gauge makes a great lockpick.
>>
>>1233639
Lockpicking works. It's not crazy difficult to learn either. You probably have some unrealistic expectations on how well it works though. If you're looking to use it for anything illegal, it's not some 5 second ninja silent way or opening a locked door. In general, with manual only tools, it's either relatively quick and very loud, or relatively quiet and very slow.
>>
>>1233639
That's exactly how I did it. Cheap picks because there's really no advantage in expensive ones, then read something about it. The only reason people think lock picking is difficult is because they have never looked into it.
>>
>>1233639
This is a stupid point of reference, and i'm guessing it's a mix of dumb luck and a cheep lock, but....

They got in with no real lockpicking experience, so it would be handy if you locked yourself out of something or lost your keys.

My old man passed on the coat hanger and ribbon trick for getting into my car if i locked the keys in it, but you risk shattering the glass or fucking something up.

>>1233639
Just buy one of those things from Home Depot that you use to drive fence posts into the ground and fill it with concrete.

>>
>>1233643

those locks are quite easy as the pins arnt threaded but it is a good diagram of how a lock works
>>
>>1233639
>Is lockpicking a meme?
No
>Can I learn to lockpick by just buying a cheap set of lockpicks and downloading free ebooks?
No. Buying the stuff and reading books is the start. Next, buy, borrow or anyhow acquire a metric ton of padlocks and bare locks.
Then, you start to practise. I recommend you to do this at home or some other place that is quiet, the more you can concentrate the faster you will learn to actually open locks.
>>
>>1233639
I have a Southord picking set that's on a keychain. It's come in handy a few times when we've had some guys at work lose trailer keys, LOTO keys, the key to our propane tank cage, that sort of thing. There are some great YouTube videos that will help more than a book. Check out Bosnian Bill. Another good skill is getting into a car door with a coat hanger and learning to hot-wire. Of course, unless you practice you forget how. Reading about it only does so much.

Those only work with fairly wide key ways on straightforward locks. In other words, if you got it with a lock gun, you could've done it with a rake. Don't get me wrong, they can be useful; they're just not the be all end all of lock picking.
>>
>>1233639
I pick locks regularly as a hobby, no it is not a meme, doable. In terms of picks, chinky shit is prob going to be everyones first kit which is fine, just dont got into the 200+ pick set meme. You will and even the good pickers are going to regularly user 1-4 picks. In terms of better picks such as Sparrows or Petersons, they can can get you thinner better crafted picks for euro locks or locks with difficult keyways.

tfw it's dangerously close to illegal to even own lockpicks in this state.

Locksmith reporting in. We pick locks all the time. However some locks are super hard to pick. More about key cut depth then lock quality as far as how hard it is to pick. A 26262 key would be a great big pain in the ass but a 45454 key would seem really easy

Expensive picks last longer since they are made of better material, but for learning to pick there is no advantage, if they're the same shape and thickness then they're functionally almost identical.

I was thief and trust me you will take more than one year to even start doing it right

>>1233847
I was a middle schooler and trust me it took me 10 minutes to craft a pick out of a pen and barely two minutes to open my first locker. The thing was so efficient that I stopped carrying my keys from this day. It worked with the simple locks of course, I never tried to open anything else, but the principle is quite simple to master.

>>
>>1233856
>and barely two minutes to open my first locker.
thats not really an achievement, i open my locker at work by pulling on it really hard.
>>
>>1233861
At this point it shouldn't be called a locker... Also it was 2 minutes the first time, after you got the trick it's as fast as a key.
>>
>>1233639
Yeah it's kinda fun.

Get a starter kit, go buy a few clearance rack door-handle-locks from walmart to practice on.

It's a handy skill to have, you won't ever feel too impeded by a locked door because you'll just need the right tools to open it.
>>
>>1233867
>you'll just need the right tools to open it.
You can always just kick it in. Most doors are hollow and attach to cheap hinges sunk into cheap walls.
>>
>>1233879
Kicking doors is expensive if you have to pay for repairs. My friend locked themself out of their room. Could we have kicked in the door? Yeah, but picking the lock only took 5-10 minutes and didn't damage anything.

Mostly I just pick for fun though.
>>
>>1233639
Can make a basic set with a Grinder or dremel and either hacksaw blades or the metal inserts from windscreen wiper blades and a blowtorch to twist and bend torque wrench.

The they'll break from time to time but a reasonably quick and easy way to get started depending on availability of actual tools in your country

>>1233639
I picked one of mine today when I lost the key. It was only for a master brand padlock. I used another key that fit into the lock, but couldn't turn/unlock it, as a bump key. Took only like 5 seconds to open it. I "bumped" by shoving it in and out really quick and short while trying to turn it. Luckily, the lock is only for keeping racoons out of feed and not people.

>>1233639
>>1233640
A 12lb sledge makes a great lockpick too
>>
>>1233639
i dont know if this is diy (im here starting a thread to ask for help) but lock picking is really fucking hard and the pay off is minimal. Lockpicking school in a box is great becasue it gives you up to 3 tumblers so you can work your way up and comes with a cheepo set so if you hate it you dont feel like you wasted a ton of mony on tools you will never use.

it took me about a year and a half to consistently do a modern six pin. ive used it twice.

if you are gunna learn it learn it for the art/skill not for practical application. if i was going to do anything practical i would just get a key gun.

I'm pretty sure I still have some of those panties from years ago somewhere inside my closet. I never threw them away or my parents never found them, so they must still be in my room somewhere.

Thanks, based Thad/Thai. You pretty much single-handedly revolutionized my adolescent sexual awakening.

C'mon, man. I'm only calling it a shim now because I've learned what it is. If I was telling the story in the first-person, 13 year old me would have just called it "a metal bendy lockpicky thing".

Not to mention, all I had back then was a shitty used laptop computer from Compaq (kek, remember that?) that only my dad would use for work, and I didn't want to look it up on my school computers because I knew it would get me caught.

I managed to unlock a locked bedroom door when my uncle left my dad's house for weeks and left a fan on the whole time.

Did it once then realized i turned the wrong way so i did it again.

Had to unlock it again like a week later.
>>
>>1238538
I don't get it. If you work one pin at a time, why wouldn't the blue part just be pushed back into the cylinder? They're fucking springloaded. Please help a retard out.
>>
>>1239849
My younger brother said the exact same thing. You're playing on the imperfections of the lock and it's components.

When you apply extremely light torque to the tumbler it rotates ever so slightly, creating a lip between the tumbler and the cylinder cavity. When the pin is pushed into the cylinder cavity and it's passed the tumbler threshold, apply extremely light torque to create the lip and the lip then holds the pin in place inside the cylinder cavity.
>>
>>1233655
I've found raking to be the most "spy" type of tech, and works on almost every "simple" 4 and 5 pin lock. I've picked file-cabinet / master-lock / interior / exterior doors at work at least 10 times now, possibly more. Everyone is stunned when you do it, if you're good with a rake and torque wrench, you can open a lock in 10-15 seconds.

That said, I enjoy actually picking a lock. Requires a lot more patience, feel and skill, but it's so much more rewarding knowing where the pins catch.

So, yes, you can learn by reading, getting some cheap locks and a cheap pick set. You get good with lots of time. It's like crocheting for neck-beards.

Nope, as long as im not using them in a burglary they are legal to possess and use.
