Hi, my name is Chris and I am from Liverpool, I was kind of forced into the locksmith area because of my job, which is maintenance work for a lettings agent and part of my work involves gaining access to properties that have been left unoccupied (usually in the middle of the night) and keys are not available (tenants taken them along with anything that wasn't nailed down). I am currently awaiting a locksmith course which will begin in May, at the moment I'm gaining access to the properties by snapping euro locks or drilling them out, I have however got myself some bump keys which I can't wait to try out. Hopefully I'll learn more from people like you on this forum
Cheers

On the subject of bump keys, how efficient do you think they are for gaining access through a euro lock, which is the most common lock I am coming across

Hi Seedyblue :welc:

We don't talk about locks in use and bumpkeys are considered a bypass, which we also don't talk about here.

Have a read of the rules and a good look around. welc :06: welc

You've come to the right place for all things Locksport. :08:

Lots of friendly folk to help you along your journey. :88:

Ask loads of questions and post loads of pics. welc
You must always remember, it's the lock that chooses the pick, not you.

Sorry, just read the rules, seems I've broken most of them in such a short amount of time, think I'll lie low for a while and watch from the sidelines
