Hi!

Besides the practice locks that came with my lock picking set I wanted to get started with my balcony door.
What type of lock is this and which pick should I try first? :???:

No. Do not pick locks in use or that you depend on.

The lock is not in use anymore, we have lost the last key at New Year's. I will get a new door & lock soon anyways. That is why I chose that lock - wouldn't want to start practicing on an active lock!

Wait a moment until the lock is replaced and then have fun with the removed lock. Use the advise given here and in the usual guides and have fun learning after the lock is removed. :)

Never practice on installed cylinders. Do not practice in view of others. Do not open locks for others. Do not discuss the subject with neighbors, friends, etc..
