In this course you will learn how to pick your first lock successfully. No previous knowledge about lock picking is required. However, to really benefit from this class you will need some basic tools and a padlock to practice on.
I made a comprehensive guide on the history of locks, the legal considerations of lock picking, I teach you the correct technique, show you which tools to use and what kind of pins are commonly found in pin tumbler locks. I also included three video walkthroughs in which I pick increasingly difficult locks and show you my step-by-step guide during that process. If you repeat these steps you will also be able to open locks super quickly. Lastly, we disassembly the hardest lock and have a look at the inside of a commercial door lock. You will be surprised which security pins we find there.
Overall, this class covers all the important aspects of lockpicking. If you make it till the end of this class you will be set to open basically any padlock. As an extra, feel free to check out my other class on how to make your own lock picking tools, such as the tension wrench and the hook.
