Ok thanks! Auto is a weird one as most (older) car door locks are just fancy wafer locks and offer little more than a mild deterrent to passers by. But I will respect the rules of the forum. As and when my whim takes the hobby further into the world of auto locks, I'm sure I'll be directed to the appropriate place to discuss it!

A subject like auto locksmithing is a very specialized area, as well as sensitive one. They're also not usually a subject that guys new to locksport are going to get into because of the availability of locks to practice on, and the huge expense in tools.

Knowledge of auto locksmithing can also be very attractive to guys with a malicious intent, and to discuss this in an open public forum can lead to accusations. Of course, the same can be said about regular locks, and we watch that aspect by keeping guidelines such as not picking locks in use and not picking a lock that we have no permission to.

Another point to raise is that we are into this for sport, which is unlikely to involve auto locks.

Same goes for bypass techniques, but also they don't involve any skill as such, and so I would also not consider it as a sport.

Bypassing requires little to no skill and can be used by criminals to rob your shed. Picking requires practice and skill, even raking.
Auto is a whole other world that is usually left to professionals and theives.
Part take in all aspects of lock sport but leave some stuff of open forum and public domain.
The above is not taboo as we all do it but don't show to general public.

basically because it is not part of Locksport and also, I do all my picking in the hand so kind of difficult to hold a car - last time I tried I had a hernia lol

one reason is that we don't really want to attract those nice people who are just looking for a quick way to break in to cars or into other folk's property - we are a hobby site for enthusiasts and that is who we cater for

Hi, just curious, but why are auto locks and bypassing no-no's? Not overly concerned, but I like to dabble in all areas of lock opening.
