Hi guys,

Been wanting to get in to lock picking for as long as I can remember and finally decided to get into it :)

I have read the forum rules before posting this and also read detail overkill ( which is a really helpful read). Now looking to get my first set of picks and locks :)

What else to say ......... I like the challenge of lock picking and thinking of the lock as puzzles, I also think it is just dam cool. I have been looking for someone or somewhere to help me along the picking journey and stumbled across this forum which sounds perfect just hope there are some members around my local area lol

cheers guys

:s_hi: and welc welc welc @Torias

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:

This page may help some of the questions you may have... https://www.uklocksport.co.uk/viewforum.php?f=63

Hi mate
Do you have any idea what picks you are going to buy?
There is a great thread here somewhere with recommendations for a first pick set.

Found it !
