So you want to learn how to pick a lock? Well you have come to right place. The reason you have stumbled upon this guide is likely to answer these two questions:
- Is it difficult to learn how to pick a lock?
- How do I pick a lock?
In regards to the first question, learning how to pick locks is, in fact, a very simple skill to acquire. There is a common misconception that learning how to pick a lock is inherently difficult and requires hours upon hours of sitting quietly in a candle lit room with nothing but a set of lock picks, gobs of patience, and a lock to pick. Furthermore, that you must achieve some Zen-like focus to have any success at lock picking. But it is in fact quite the opposite. The basic concepts and techniques of lock picking can be learned and applied within hours. It can also be practiced in any environment in which both hands are free, such as watching TV. This all being said, lock picking is still a skill and like any skill, mastery requires patience and practice.
