I max skilled lock picking in Skyrim and opened any treasury you Can imagine.I can do an AMA if you want
On a serious note i always liked the idea of trying it, never touched that matter tho
yes, same. I always thought it would be cool to have this skill/skill set and the equipment
Add me to the list If there are some tuturials here, I might finally get myself a set.
I was interested in lock picking, but not for a long time I'm afraid. TWIMC here is a good starter kit which includes a transparent lock https://www.banggood.com/ru/Transparent-Practice-Padlocks-with-12pcs-Unlocking-Lock-Pick-Set-Key-Extractor-Tool-Lock-Pick-Tools-p-1031199.html?rmmds=search Unfortunately I had to get rid of it eventually since it's illegal to own such stuff in my country.
Regarding tutorials I would recommend "MIT Guide to Lock Picking" https://www.lysator.liu.se/mit-guide/MITLockGuide.pdf
For those looking for a little inspiration I follow this guy on youtube, picked about anything you can ever imagine: https://www.youtube.com/user/bosnianbill some of his earlier post go into real detail about getting started too which is pretty sweet
I've got a set of lockpicks as well. But haven't done any lockpicking in ages. Although it was, but also frustrating from time to time.But I'm definitely interested in lockpicking.
Another interview down, another run at my Brinks padlock. Is there any sort of trick or tip for counting the number of pins?
I had bought this set previously - it's great for beginners but don't expect it to be of lasting quality. After I picked the lock a handful of times it broke. If anyone has found a higher quality beginners set(something with picks+practice lock) I'd love to see it, even if it's pricier.
If you use a long curve (forgot the proper name, this one)
put it right to the back of the lock add a little pressure (not alot) and slowly pull forwards you should be able to feel 'clicks' as it goes over the pins
That seems to be my prob. Adding too much pressure and pushing the pins up.
You really should consider a cut away to improve your skills; Ebay cut away lock here is a picture as that link will likely decay shortly:
Then you can try pin counting and seeing the feedback 'knocks' on the pins with your eyes so you can calibrate how much pressure you need
Here: Sparrows night school is highly recommended by Bosian Bill and is quite the high quailty looking teaching set,
I am interested too.

A repost of something I asked earlier in this thread but now there is a few more people I wonder ... anyone here took on a roku and succeeded?
