Hello all, John from Dorset here. I became interested in locksport after seeing some videos on YouTube, I have just received my cheap pick set from eBay, to get me started for the time being. It came with one of the clear locks that is utterly useless, requiring only the 6th pin to be lifted!

Below is the first lock I defeated, a tri-circle 263. Managed to open it in about 20 minutes, but I think it was beginners luck as I have been unable to open it again after another hour or so of trying!

I will keep practicing and increasing my knowledge, currently working my way through the MIT guide.

Thanks,

John

Thank you for the warm welcome everyone. So after about 2 hours after first picking the tri circle, I've finally managed to defeat it again!

Thanks,

John
