Step 6: Here's some videos...

Thanks for the instructable! I've always been intrigued by this but now realized I will need waaay more paperclips...<br>And for the &quot;don't teach criminals&quot; crowd, two things: <br>1.) Go ahead and try to pick a lock. Seriously. I know the theory but I find it's actually not quite as easy. Or fast. So watch out for the guy with a box of paperclips standing in front of your lock for like 30 minutes while continously cussing and the walking away frustrated. <br>2.) Most homes or locks can be broken into much easier using destructive methods. Break a window, use a bolt cutter or just drive your pick-up truck through the wall. If someone really wants to get in they will get in. Ask your local police officer, 9 out of 10 timed thats how burglars get in, not by picking locks, because that actually takes skill and time. Even the locksmith I once had to call just busted my lock, the lazy bastard. <br>Lastly if you have to cut your favorite padlock always do it on the top of the horseshoe that way you can weld and reuse it...<br><br><br>
<p>3.) To those would-be criminals...please stop by...there is yet another mechanical device with a trigger waiting on the other side of MY door... ;)</p>
<p>This does work. It helps to know how they are constructed and then visualize what you are doing.</p>
<p>Quick way I would get into video and vending machine I owned that had the locks buggered. Drive a flat screwdriver into the key hole . Use a crescent wrench to turn the screwdriver. Might take a couple of tries but all cheap and some better locks if you break the pins the lock opens. Some have cheap wafers and they are even easier. </p>
<p>thanks for letting every criminal know how to break the lock on my back yard and get in my windows!!!!!!!</p>
<p>You don't have to worry about criminals using this to get through your locks. This takes too much time and some talent/practice to get. Criminals find it much faster and easier to just pry or cut the lock. I have been in law enforcement for over 20 years and have never run across a lock that has been picked by a would-be thief. The lock are always cut/damaged.</p>
<p>My dear Helen, please be aware that lock picking has been around as long as there have been locks. I figured all of this tutorial out when I was 11. I am now 65. I have never abused my knowledge, though one friend did go behind my back, questioning my integrity after I unlocked her house for her and showed her how to fix her vulnerability. People!.</p>
<p>Enter stage left, the mandatory, pseudo moralist. Every group has at least one.<br>Pretty sure that this tutoial is old news to any would be crim.</p>
<p>Yo Helen S73. Be grateful someone woke you up to the fact. Get solid window locks, and remember that most fences are not impregnable. As in ladder over and out. </p>
<p>There have been lock picking instructions since the days when usenet started and the World Wide Web was text based. Criminals already know how to do it. Also Google &quot;bump keys&quot; and see how they get in your front door.</p>
hopefully I will be able to open my safe
<p>I already did. There's nothing there...</p>
<p>The videos in step 6 do not appear.</p>
<p>Thanks PhillippeB15, it sure sent me to Home Depot to get some extra sliding locks for my downstairs windows. And as for you, ynneb, someone in this country has to have some morality, they're disappearing by the thousands :-)</p>
<blockquote>I tried it with a paperclip. It didn't work, (sorry). Then I tried it with another paperclip. It didn't work (sorry). Then I tried it with a different paperclip and it didn't work. </blockquote>
<p>Don't worry, paperclips can't pick locks. </p>
<p>I don't bother with picking a lock. Bolt Cutter does a quick job and no time wasted. Don't misunderstand me, I use bolt cutters when the key was lost.</p>
<p>The videos do not exist</p>
<p>tank you ...mr majid iran</p>
<p>the videos dont work</p>
Maybe you should try again &amp; not give up so easily. Unless you've gone thru an entire box of paper clips already. Just Sayin. Have a blessed day.
<p>sorry but it was kind of hard to understand</p><p>(nothing mean) i was really hoping the videos would help but they dont work on my device</p><p>thanks anyways</p>ill eventually make it !
<p>Haven't tried this yet but I know this works. This is a very efficient way to make a lock picker. Nice job!</p>
Awesome deffinately works. I once picked my door lock with a bump key cause i foregot my house key on my other key ring.
<p>your great ideas</p>
This question isn't related to picking locks, but how do you, like, tag your pictures?
Been picking locks since I was about 5. This is nothing new to me. I usually use paper clips, metal hangers, and pieces of metal.
This is my first time picking locks and I did it twice already
<p>this is crazy</p>
I cant open it :'(
<p>cool hahahah </p>
<p>You are brilliant! Thank you! Made it on the first attempt. YEAH!</p>
<p>Baloney,</p><p>It is very unclear what he [presumably] says. </p><p>You push the pin up or left or right ? You turn it at an angled position or from straight position ? </p>
<p>Got this to work on my second try using my first paperclip. The tension wrench must be as close to the bottom of the lock as you can get it, with medium-high pressure (as much as you can use to not bend the paperclip). After that it is trial and error to get the pins up (I found more pressure = better).</p><p>Thank you so much, I just saved my coworker $10 on buying a new lock</p>
&quot;just make it work, if you don't, you may have to saw your leg off.&quot;<br>Or you could saw the lock off.
<p>&quot;Whoosh&quot;</p>
it was humorous...i dont actually think he seriously suggested that <br>
I picked the all the doors and windows in the classrooms starting third grade
<p>... But window locks don't need picking...</p>
<p><strong>hahaha</strong></p>
<p>i picked the doors of the classrooms at lunch lol</p><p>evil B)</p>
