tried what lockpicking? Um, yeah with LOTS of practise it works. The manuals you find here at bombshock will get you started. One of the best guides it the “MIT Lock Picking Guide” Search for it in Google or KazZA. It tells you how to make the tools, with diagrams and all that crap.

i think he/she(didnt want to offend you by getting your gender wrong) is asking is has anyone tried slip locks.
i personally am not a lock picker and dont know what the hell a slip lock is so i’ll leave this one to people who do.

its called carding,and yes it works,with practice and the right setup per lock.
only works on certain lock tho,
there is an ok lockpick guide here,but its way outdated

Slipping a lock only works if the lock is installed incorrectly or the door jamb is mutated. Fortunately for slip-lockers, a good majority of all slippable locks ARE installed incorrectly.
In short, YES it works.

i am a sort of amiture lock picker. I practiced intencly for about 2 months got up to being able to pick a 6 tooth lock. but i havnt tried picking in about 5 months so i dont know how much has stayed with me. and if your tryin gto pick start out with simple things like a a small flat head screwdriver ( i like to temper and bend them to get more torqu) as a torqu(sp?) wrence and a pin, sometimes a paperclip and suck items. but if your realy getin ginto it try and find a set… if anyone knows how how to make buy steal whatever to get a real set tell me. but there are diff methods like just plain tooth picking, raking(my favorite, and most used) and other ones wich i didnt realy pay much atention to. so there are other sites out ther that give good tips and methods to picking so just notify me and i’ll try to get those to you. but i just went on about a bunch of shit because this thing was about door jamms wich i dont realy know much about so whatever, my eyes hurt.

Try southord, but a tubular pick is going to run you between 50 and 100 dollars , and there are several different ones for different locks.

The shit’s also called jimmying

Think about it.
Carding could only work if part of the bolt was sticking out exposed, slanted. Any lockmaker would make it fully push into a chamber so you couldn’t get any grip with a credit card or anything. Thats just movie shit.
Lockpicking is probably even easier, as I heard that when carding does work it screws up your card anyway. I found a good simple set at http://www.lock-picks.com, where they even tell you its just a formality that they make you sign that thing.
I just read a few tutorials(mostly focusing on MIT’s, which I found on the gnutello network or whatever its called) and I was able to pick my front door within one minute. After that, I tried two padlocks, one made by Fortress($4) and one made by Master($6), key only. I got both open within 2 minutes of trying on my first attempt and now I can do it in as little as 5 seconds(with luck). Master is a good brand too. I’m no master locksmith, and to be plain and simple, with a little bit of knowledge and effort even the worst of newbies can open most common locks within a few minutes of time.

just slip a card in the space between the door and the doorway on ythe side of the door knob and push… with any luck…… you’ll be in 🙂

yeah just use some simple sheet metal. make it as flat as possible so it can fit in tighter places. The J method works best.

I was wondering whether or not lock pick guns work u know how they r supposed to put enough tension of the pins to push them up. Do they work and would u need a tension tool to work it?
— Posted by DARK ANGEL on 10:56 am on April 9, 2002
Lock pick guns work well and as long as you buy a decent one then you can adjust the tension on the pick.
And yes you still need a tension wrench to turn the lock.
The only bad thing about a lockpick gun is they are a bit pricey but worth every penny.
