Hi!

Recently taken up lock picking as a hobby after watching too many lockpicking lawyer videos on YouTube.
Currently using a dirt cheap Daniu lockpick set from Banggood, terrible quality but I have managed to pick a couple of locks with it.

Shoutout to Xbmods for showing me this place!

Currently documenting my progress on instagram (@lucapickslocks), let me know if any of you guys have lockpicking instas and I shall give you a follow!

Hi mate, :welc:

Bristol certainly seems to be the place to be in the lockpicking community - we have quite a few members from there !
I used to have a lockpicking insta, but it kept getting hacked, the name changed to russian, and the password changed.
after 6 or 7 attempts, I just gave up on it !

Hope to see you around !

:s_hi: and welc welc welc @Lucaio


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

viewtopic.php?f=24&t=38
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.

viewtopic.php?f=41&t=423


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:
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... viewforum.php?f=63
