Last night my friend got locked out of her apartment. She was pretty upset about it too because the only two people who have spare keys were in Europe. And while she was calling people and debating whether or not to call a locksmith, which btw would cost $70, I googled “deadbolt lock picking” and found several sites about lock picking.
Everything looked so complicated when I tried to read them, but then I found this site, How Lock Picking Works, sat down and read it and decided to give it a try.
I found some Allen Wrenches
a small flat head screw driver
and a nail filer thing from a nail clipper
and that is all I needed to pick a deadbolt lock. =)
Got her into her house in under 10 minutes. It was pretty awesome. I should consider becoming a locksmith haha. Or thievery. I just need to learn how to be sneaky…
