Hi y’all,
Bought a cheap practice lock set and have enjoyed learning. Found this forum. So now need to locate more locks to play with.

Basically need to know what happens on here.

Cheers

Hi mate
:welc:
Where are you from?
If you are looking for locks, that is the first thing you need to tell us - maybe someone knows a place near to you.
This forum is simply the best place to share your experience and ask questions if you have any. So many of us have learnt so much in so little time on here.
Hopefully you will too !

You can try Smith locke from screwfix, Wilko's have some good master locks too learn from, such as the Master 2250d, it's full of spool pins, great lock for learning. You can also try ebay.
