Howdy
My name's Joshua, but you can call me Ua or Ezmau since there are already Joshes on this site.
I think disc detainers are my favorite but locks in general are interesting to me. I just turned 18, almost broke a pick in a dirty grimey lock, and would like to learn more about picking on this site.


Thanks for having me.

Hi, I'm 35, I have been watching lock picking videos on utub for a few years and finally ordered a pick set that was recommended in a video, I think I have some old door locks somewhere in the house, eagerly awaiting the delivery.
I'm trying to find a source of locks to try out here in Melbourne Australia.

Re: Members Say Hi

Terminally Transient here, I rediscovered my old picks from back when I was in uni XX years ago, trying to get back into it and seeing if this old dog can pick up some new tricks. It seems a lot more difficult now than back then.

Re: Members Say Hi

Hello everyone!

I'm Olivier from France, I ran into this forum when looking for reviews about the locks I wanted to install on my future house, and decided to make an account here: if I can look at what I'm buying from the "opponent's" side, then it'll be easier to find something efficient.
Apart from that, I'm 38, am married with 2 kids, and work in insurance sales.

Have a nice day!

Re: Members Say Hi

Welcome folks!
Hope to see ya around.
It's wonderful place here.

Olivier, I applaud your efforts in doing some research
before purchasing locks for you home. That's more
than you can say for most I'd imagine. Keep at it.

Re: Members Say Hi

Thanks! Yeah, I figured it'd be good to actually know about what I'm looking for... I've been choosing way too much things at the random, and am trying to correct this.

Re: Members Say Hi

Greetings all. I am about as new as one can be to this, in spite of being ancient of days. I have finally out grown building and painting scale model airplanes and need a new hobby. I've been watching a lot of Youtube videos. I like to do some research before I start spending money. I don't want to buy things I don't need or won't need until I have developed some skills.
I have come to learn and ask questions as I have no pretense of knowledge. I'm not strong enough to learn black smithing, my sensitive little hands may be perfect for this, or not.
I look forward to learning many new things about something I have always had some curiosity about.

A big welcome to you sir. I'm Mike. You've come to a good place to get started. You'll have to search around a bit... but I know there's some threads on purchasing lock picks as well as on some startup reading. And as you've mentioned, youtube is an incredible source as well.

Welcome Alan. Glad you're here. I'm sure we all would love to hear more about this when you're ready.

Re: Members Say Hi

Welcome to the group, both of you guys.

@MacNutz - ask as many questions as you like - that's literally what this board is for.

@Alan - what's your invention?

Re: Members Say Hi

Thanks guys. I will ask. I have been watching many videos by people like LPL and Bosnian Bill. They seem super legit. They have both created and answered a number of questions. I have ideas about what I need to get started comfortably. I shall find the place to talk about the specifics of what I am thinking of.
I am big on sticking to basics at the beginning of any new study or effort. I can imagine there are some Master locks in my near future.

Thanks for the welcome. Let me explain my invention, and ask a question.

I have a new key core design. Briefly, its strengths are very high security at low cost. I've already filed for a patent, and am in the process of building a prototype.

This lock is provably bump-proof. It is extremely pick resistance (perhaps even Bowley lock difficult). I do not believe any impressioning will be possible. It is highly resistant to force because of inherently robust parts, and is designed to be made easily drill resistant with a single anti-drill pin.

Please assume for a minute that all of the above is true: this is a bump-proof, virtually pick proof, robust deadbolt at roughly Home Depot Kwikset/Schlage/Yale prices. Would it be commercially advantageous to have such a lock which also has a pretty conventional looking inexpensive key that can be easily copied on conventional key cutters? That is, does it make sense to market a lock with superior security, but an easily and cheaply copied key?
