Practice Locks

Practice locks are locks that have additional features to make learning the art of lock picking easier.
If you want to learn how to pick a lock, a practice lock can help.

Cut-away locks are 'real' locks that have been cut-away to expose the pins and springs, allowing you to see what's happening when you insert the key or your lock picks.
Clear locks are fully formed, but again, allow you to see what's happening.
There is no quicker way to understand the process required to pick a lock than a clear or cut-away lock.

Some of our practice locks are neither cut-away or clear, rather they offer the lock picker an 'easier' real lock to start on.

Many people ask me how to pick a door lock, and yet I would advise NOT picking locks in use unless you have to. Damage is rare, but a practice lock saves you taking the risk.

If you want to know how to pick a lock, this is a great place to start. A clear or cut-away lock and a set of lock picks and you're off.

We also have some great Dimple practice locks is you're feeling more advanced!
