8 is easy, no talking about car locks.

15 means stick to picking locks and you will be ok, you will learn more as you progress.
Lockpicking is pure luck but the more I practice the luckier I get.

That's the spirit! :)

Bypassing is bypassing the locks main function by unlocking it in a way that a key is not needed. Non destructive and usually faster then using a key.

I'll leave this here so it doesn't get lost...

We are constantly being asked why you should not pick locks that are in use, well here is a perfect example. Not a great picture but what you are looking at is part of a hair clip or bobby pin which was being used to legitimately gain entry to a property. The metal broke off in the lock which meant that when somebody with the correct key turned up they still could not get in and had to call me to open the door and extract the offending clip.

Lockpicking is pure luck but the more I practice the luckier I get.

I just realised that a couple of the rules, such as 7 and 15, say XYZ not to be discussed on the open forum. Does that mean that there's a secret, non-open forum for people of a certain stature / post level? Or is it just taken to mean -the forum-?

If you tell me it's the latter I'll assume it's like fight club...  :xcool:

The super secret nudge-nudge-wink-wink part of the forum comprises of forum members who have been selected in a completely normal locksport forum ritual

Dam we have been tumbled lol, been waiting years for someone to question this ;)

As you may know or have noticed we do indeed have a VIP section for members we vote in under a strict criteria, we also have an even higher level of restriction for trading locksmiths, where some discussion but still not all is allowed
Some things are for designated site only, typical example Safe entry.

Access to higher members profile are given via team members proposals and not given on request so please do not ask as a refusal often offends
