Worked like a charm. I lost my key to the lock box where we keep important documents. Desperately needed the truck title. Found your post and it took less than a minute to pick the lock box.
Tell me how @duskshadow
this guide is truly terrible. instructions don't make sense, skips a whole bunch of steps, pictures don't match the text. just watch a youtube video instead.
<p>SHUT UP it works dosen't it??</p>
<p>This worked pretty much right off the bat when I tried it on the lock in a lockbox I have that I have not seen the key for in a few years. I didn't have much hope of it turning up any time soon so I decided to pick it. I tried some other instructions I found on another site involving tweezers, a small screwdriver and some other item that slips my mind at the moment and had no luck so I didn't expect the paper clips to pop the lock open right away but it did.</p>
<p>glad this worked for you when I get bord I see how many I can open in a minuet.</p>
very simple... I like it! Ijust read five paragraphs about lock picking and it was so @#$#@$# confusing thank you! <br>
Maybe make a tutorial for a 'Yale' lock. These are far more common. The type of lock in this tutorial is very loose and easy to pick. Yale locks can be much more challenging.
