Lockpicking 101

  • jgor & a13k
  • Wednesday, May 20th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Learn how the locks you rely on in your homes and businesses function, what makes some locks more secure than others, and how they can all be attacked. This hands-on lecture will have a number of practice locks, spare lockpicks, and instructional diagrams for you to try your hand at picking locks as we cover the fundamental concepts all the way through advanced techniques for attacking pick-resistant locks, and more.

Presented by the Longhorn Lockpicking Club. Founded in 2006, Longhorn Lockpicking is one of the most active groups in the U.S. dedicated to practicing the hobby and competitive sport of picking / defeating locks. We meet regularly near the University of Texas campus and are open to anyone with an interest in lockpicking, from beginners to professionals. More info can be found at our website:
