Beginners guide to Lockpicking

This is nice looking colour guide to locking.

I am often asked to teach someone to pick locks. I give them this guide and tell them to try to learn the basics. After they read and try to open a lock I am more than glad to help.
If they don't try on their own I won't waste my time on them.

Re: Beginners guide to Lockpicking

That is a nice little guide! I always refer them to the Locksport book. I have a couple of copies at hand most of the time. I may just switch pubs!
