Lock Picking Crash Course

If you want a quick 60 second lock picking crash course, with very little technical terms, you’ve come to the right place.

What you need:

  • A Lock Picking “Tension wrench” and “Rake”
  • A cheap padlock
  • Watch our video above

For some pro tips remember, most padlocks unlock when you turn the plug (the key way area) clockwise; when using a “raking” technique you want to be very light with your tension wrench pressure (Think foreplay, not rape); and only pick those locks that you either own or have been given explicit permission to pick from a rightful owner.

…Once you learn these techniques I can tell you from experience, the temptations are real. Make that line a very thick line so that you never get close to crossing it.

*Have fun, be smart, stay legal.
