Beginners Lock Picking Set

Picking locks is one of my favorite skills. It can be one of yours as well with the Beginners Lock-Picking Blend Set from the Maker Shed. Learn about the inner workings of the mortise and cylinder lock, first developed by the Egyptians over 4000 years ago. Each set contains 8 tools hand-picked by TOOOL (The Open Organization Of Lock-pickers) that will get you on your way to opening a variety of different locks.


Maker Shed

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for ‘projects in a box,’ otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
