Heard about locksport and want to try it for yourself? It's a fun hobby you can pick up easily (ha!). It's like a Rubik's cube but you have to work by feel alone. And all you need to get started is a lock and a pick-set. We recommend kicking off with our beginner transparent padlock, it's a perfect first lock. Once you've gained confidence you can check your local hardware store (or look through your basement/attic?) for other locks to try.
Watch John Park's Workshop Intro to Lockpicking video, featuring a gigantic lock, to learn the tricks of the trade. Makerspaces and events often have classes and competitions as well, where you can improve on your techniques.
This Basic Lockpick Set is easy on the budget, but has a range good quality picks and wrenches with rubber foam covers. Simple, but effective - you don't need to spend more!
This set contains two torsion (tension/torque) wrenches and nine lockpicks, including varying hook picks, half-diamond, and a dimple lockpick. They have a nice, grippy handle, so your hold won't slip while you're gleefully picking away.
