So I recently just bought a 9 piece lock pick set and can easily pick master locks and my front door in about 10 seconds. I would like to steal valuable objects from stores or nearly anywhere. Is there any ideas/tips or any insight anyone would like to share with me.

haha yeah first and foremost stores wont have shit master locks and kwikset deadbolts. They will have medeco deadbolts and best brand locks. Medeco's are above your ability if you just started. They have pins that have to be lifted to the correct height and turned to the correct position to remove the obstructing sidebar. On top of that every top pin in medecos are normally serrated. Best Brand locks are mostly serrated and spool pins. If you don't know what these terms mean then I dont reccomend you go and try to steal from stores.

I reccomend you practice a little more and maybe buy some locks with security pins, but if you find a store with cheap locks on the doors please be my guest.

A crowbar is a better tool for breaking and entering...

ive had my lockpicking set for about a year now. when i first got it i attempted to pick my house locks alot and it took me about 1-3 hours to pick my locks and this went on for about 3 months until i just said fuck it id rather actually "break" in. and what sucks the most is i cant even use the hook pick i scraped with the ball pick. which reminds me of a robbery that happened at a local game store. the theives had kicked in the glass door and stole everything but the Wii shit and i remember actually witnessing this and they werent exactly quick. Anyways im just saying it would probably be easier to just break something.

Lol to pick the locks that your picking, you could make the lock picks with a little a little friend called youtube. It couldnt be easier and i dont see why you'd go out and buy one. Although i have seen Auto-matic lock picks thats go for around 50$. you could try picking up one of those if you had the extra cash.

I know this seems a little stupid, but I saw somewhere that you could pick a basic house lock with a bobby pin and a screw driver. Seems like a possibility, I'm wondering if any of you know if it works or not.

it doesnt work.

and the "automatic" picks are actually just pick guns that rapidly strike the pins of a pin tumbler lock much like a bump key. all in all they are good for low security locks but not much else.

to be brutally honest i can pick most pin tumblers faster then i can use a pick gun.


picking locks isnt something you can learn overnight. If you plan to use lockpicking in any "heists" i reccomend you practice..... a lot.

Unless you have sex having to do with doorknobs and lock picks... then that's just really kinky. ;)

Maggots... I don't know about you but I made the girl moan like hell my first time, no practice ;)

And yeah I've use a coat hanger before to pick a lock but it took a long time too.

Bullshit

the only way you could have picked a lock with only a coat hanger is if it was a warded lock that was considerably small. Warded door locks have levers that take considerable force to move as well as the lever inside the must be lifted in order for the bolt to be moved aside. A coat hanger would probably just be mangled in the process of fucking with the lock.

to pick any other lock you need two tools one to turn the lock and one to set the pins, discs, wards etc.

Well, it was the lock on my bedroom door which a real simple one, not even a key hole. It's just a small circular hole, and on the other side you push in and turn to lock it.
I've used a coat hanger somehow to get through that, and my aunt used a coat hanger on that to bust into my room and catch me tokin' up... damn locks :(

oh my apologies. yes those locks can be open with a coat hanger. I dont really consider those locks though :P

Speaking of Lockpicking... So i'm decent at it. I'm trying to pick this girls locker to get the Ipod touch inside. She has a Brinks Home Security lock so its a little harder. Anyways my question is... Are Ipod Touch's trackable???

Yes it is possible to track it via programs like GadgetTrak but that's easily bypassed by reformatting the entire thing once you get it. GadgetTrak works by adding additional files to the device, which are easily removed in the reformatting process.

As for lock picking a Brinks, they like to include spools in every deadbolt/padlock. A bit tricky but over lifting the pins and minimal tension will allow you defeat the locks and avoid any false sets.

Good luck. There are plenty of resources on the web to help you increase your proficiency and learn as much as you'll ever need. I put together a small list of introductory sources for beginner lock pickers (found here (http://www.revelationx29a.com/showthread.php?t=43)).

Other than that, if you have questions feel free to ask. I'm all for helping beginners, we're all beginners at one point, after all.

There are some general guidelines but a majority of it is preference. It's all developed through experience.

exactly. once you become proficient and start to learn the lock types, you can tell what the lock is going to need based on the internal components of the lock. all about experience.

can anyone own a lockpick or you need to have a locksmith business/permit?

well they are considered burglary tools so you do need to obtain a registration to be a licensed locksmith...then again you can buy them online with no proof of registration. so basicly...its not illegal unless you get caught

twenglish1
March 3rd, 2009, 05:08 PM
no they are not illegal, if you get caught with them they can't charge you or anything unless you get caught actually picking someones lock

Call the cops and ask them. It varies from state to state really. Most states do have a "Possession of Burglary Tools" law in the books but few actually enforce it. If you do get caught with them then the cops will probably come pick you up every time someone uses a lock pick to rob a building. Just dont have them out in the open and you should be fine though, unless you draw attention to yourself the chances of them randomly searching you is effectively zero.

well, i have a lock pick set myself and have been doing "business" for about 2 years, Lock picking can go two ways you can ether LEARN or stick a rake in there wiggle it about and hope for it to open, about 60% of the time it will open that way, but its also just as easy to look into the lock with a small LED and see the pins and lift each one the way its really done, Hope that helps to answer your question

thanks! that does help a bit. so i just need to practice alot more with the legit picking?

yeah, i practiced on Master 40 locks, once you get those down to were you can do it in a matter of seconds, then move up to Normal door locks get those down perfect and then just work on the dead Bolts, i don't have any fancy picks all i have is a Rake a hook and a ball rake and something else i forgot, but i use the hook to get a few up then i get out the rake and rake it around a bit and Presto opened. you can PM me and ill help you out and show you some helpful vids and what not. also What exactly are you trying to get into/Accomplish PM me and we'll talk about that as well.
