Hi all,
Clint here, I'm 63 years young and thought I'd try lock picking for a hobby, Got myself some practice locks and a set of picks and so far I am enjoying it.
I'm going to try to find a bunch of old locks at auction or somewhere so I have a range to practice on. :-)

Have a quick read of the rules and etiquette section (should stop any confusion later down the line).

Next it's up to you really.


I would suggest taking a good read of Solomons guide as this is the best guide on the web (imo) :read2: :08: :
No matter what your skill set it's always a good piece of reference material to keep going back to.

Yes,yes I know you have already, but it's part of my patter and tbh it looks good to the other mods that I'm bothering with this stuff :hee20hee20hee: :hee20hee20hee:

Then mooch around the site at your leasure :72:

There is plenty to see do and get involved in so don't be shy :08:

Take a look at Meme's thread on pick making,I'm sure you will enjoy this great read :88:

https://www.uklocksport.co.uk/viewtopic ... 61&t=12345

Also keep an eye out for the meet ups , as there maybe a few folk round your way :72: :08:


Lastly Have Fun,ask loads of questions as everyday is a school day here. :icon_study: :08: :clap:
