- enclosure building supplies
- deadbolt(s)/door knob
There are a lot of instructions and great resources to learn lock picking however none of these substitute practice its one of those things that you really have to do to learn so i would like this to be a workbench for people wishing to learnt that skill set.
I was asked the question "why learn to lockpick" There are many answers for this, the main reason i have learned is because its an interesting skill that is not common, there are the practical uses of it i.e. you lock yourself out of your house calling a locksmith will start at $50 and maybe more. There is also the side of it that its interesting to do just because its not a straight forward process every lock is different.
I would love some input from others who might be interested in contributing to helping brainstorm/plan/design/build/modify this project as it progresses. If your interested in being a part let me know or feel free to add ideas here.
Legal blah blah
There is somewhat of a stigma associated with lock picking. Breaking into this box is not a criminal action and does not break any laws we will leave it at that. If there are any doubts let me know and i can justify this perspective. There are a few rules i saw on TOOOL's site that i think are good:
- Don't pick locks you don't own.
- Don't pick locks you depend on. (this has to do with the posiblity of damaging the lock when picking it not a common thing but a possibly like anything)
