In the Maker Shed: Beginners Lock-Picking Set

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.
