Lock picking is the practice of unlocking a lock by manipulating the components of the lock device without the original key.

Although lock-picking can be associated with criminal intent, it is an essential skill for the legitimate profession of locksmithing, and is also pursued by law-abiding citizens as a useful skill to learn, or simply as a hobby (locksport).

In some countries, such as Japan, lock-picking tools are illegal for most people to possess, but in many others, they are available and legal to own as long as there is no intent to use them for criminal purposes.

Can you pick a lock? Is this a skill you'd like to have?

I can pick some.

I used to do it for some of the jobs I had when doing private security years ago.

I can definitely do it on older vehicles haha, with a coat hanger, too! :cool:
